The Spurs are yesterday champion if a role players cannot play better.
The Spurs received all sorts of benefits from those referees on the floor, Ginobilli, Duncan, and Parker all had great games and they still lost. The big three played as well as they possibly can. They clocked 38, 37, and 36 respectively. Are they going to play them the all 48 minutes, no way. Ginobilli maybe can shoot better, parker can play another 3 minutes, and Duncan can shoot free throws better. That's it.
If the role players do not play better, this will be a sort series.
For pop to play small ball against the Phoenix Suns is an act of desperation. How he thinks he’s going to get his role players to play better than our role players I have no idea.
At this point for the Suns to lose, they have to play worse because the Spurs have no chance of beating us when we play well.
