Where is the Sun or Spurs defense?

Where is the great D by either team?

People are shooting as high as 71% from the field. Five players on the Spurs and 4 on the Suns shot over 50% last game.

Ginobili and Stat had a bad games. For Ginobili, you could say it was Grant Hill defense. And for Stat you could say it was Duncan's defense. But I suspect that Ginobili is playing too many minutes because his game is dependent on the amazing hustle. Stat's shot was off because he was missing a lot of open jumpers he normally knocks down.

I said in a previous post that the role players for the Spurs need to step up or the Spurs will lose. This has not changed. What I should have added is that the BIG THREE Spurs and the big three Suns need to play even, if the Suns have one off player off, and the Spurs do not then the game goes to the Spurs.

One other thing to note the Suns are playing 9 guys and the Spurs are playing 7.  This difference allows the Suns to push the ball longer and with greater efficiency. The advantage cannot be negated by the Spurs in a 48 minute game. Steve Nash is fresh when he comes back in in the 4h quarter; Another advantage cannot be negated by the Spurs.
