NBA 2016-2017 Season Thread - Page 1693

Well, that's half of the story, yes.
post #25382 of 27206
The other half is.... Manu got hit because he was in a place where he shouldn't have been?Also - his being hit wouldn't even have happened if either his foot over the line, or 3 foot violation was called

Seriously though, lets even say that was a foul.
1 foul vs 4 (or five, if you count Manus as two different violations )

Well, according to the statement the refs made after the game, Dion Waiters should have been called with an offensive foul. He also left his feet to inbound the ball, & may have gone over 5 seconds. Later, Aldridge was fouled on the rebound. That, plus the stuff you mentioned, may be the whole story. Translation: it's a massive cluster fuck.

Read that, you envision a 400 pound knuckle dragger needing cops to get him off. Watch and you see this hopeless little female hand have no effect whatsoever.

The Spurs are in for a tough series, and if they win, will be more worn down than Golden State, which will have a fairly easy time with Portland.

Leonard is the solution for Westbrook, but it seemed to wear him down offensively last night. The Spurs don't have anyone who can guard Durant (does anyone?), and the Thunder is obviously having problems with Aldridge.

Everything has to fall right for the Spurs to advance to Golden State, and righter still to advance to the Finals.

Green should have called a TO last night as soon as he had possession of the ball. The Spurs still had one to set up an inbounds play.

Oh well, hindsight is 20/20.

Great game to watch, though.

Leonard is definitely the answer for Westbrook. Durant, why not give Diaw a start and see how that goes?

Not sure Tim Duncan has any role to play in this series whatsoever. He was getting pushed around last night.

Spurs don't really do one on one defense anyways unless it's Kawhi. They switch everything to keep a body on the shooters. And ignore Roberson whenever he's playing. Really liking Adams as the roll man. Sucks in all the defenders and he has the court vision to pass

Timmy really showing his age tho. Not as spry as he used to be and can't keep up with all the OKC athletes. Hasn't done much at all on offense. But then again they LA for that

Thrilling series so far tho. Gone be gud
post #25389 of 27206
is diaw hurt? he's not playing his regular minutes.

spurs should have pulled this one out. missed call on the refs and dumb play on the spurs for not calling a TO.

adams was the difference maker in my eyes. he was rebounding like an animal and clogging the lane. timmy needs to step up or time for boban.

So does that mean its okay? A fan can touch/hinder a player, unless its a large man? C'mon, thats such a shitty argument

I only commented on the exaggerated description.

Danny Green is competent IMO against Durant but obviously it's pick-your-poison when Russ is on the floor too.

Hopefully, the three days break some wonders for the creaky Spurs squad
post #25393 of 27206
"held down" seems a bit of an exaggeration

Would have been funnotfun to see Adams lose his cool and go all Malice at the Palace there.

I don't know if the Warriors will ultimately have an easy series against Portland based just on game 1, but certainly nice to see that the other semi-finals won't be a sweep. Hopefully Warriors go up 2-0 and don't need to rush Steph back into action.

I will be at the game tonight - quite excited.
