I'm very much a layman, but to me it looks like they get destroyed defensively when he's off the court. Guys can just run in towards the hoop and also if a shot misses the rebound is generally easy for Adams and Kanter.

I think the 4 fouls early was more of a reason for the loss last game than him playing particularly poorly.

With that said, it's a bit chicken and egg. He has to foul if he's giving up points to easily.

Duncan has been total shite lately, Spurs have to try Boban, at least he will grab more rebounds. Or they can try to go small, but they will be destroyed on boards and in the post even more and they do not have enough good 3 point shooters to compensate for that. I think Spurs can still win by some miracle and home cooking, but GS will absolutely destroy them regardless.

We're watching 2 different series. The guy is averaging 3 points in the series and just threw an ally-oop directly at the rim. It's a very different TD than I'm used to seeing.

I would chuck Boban out there a bit and see what sticks.

Amazing, SA had only lost 1 game at home in regular season.

This. Unexplainable. He hasn't looked this old and slow all season.

It's over, and obviously not the way I would have liked.

Team defense looks a little better to me with Duncan directing on court but Adams totally owns him

That Kanter Adams lineup tho... Kanter has a three point shot!??? Guess I haven't watched enough OKC. What happened to Ibaka? Dude looks so old out there

Can't believe they gave Waiters the inbounding role for the last possession considering what almost happened last time

It's not over, but it kinda looks over. For me, Adams has been the difference maker.

Start Boban. West has not made enough of an impact to change the dynamics. But Duncan, as much as I love him as a player, has been a nightmare. Cringe at the comparison, but Duncan looks like the Manu that cost them the Finals v the Heat.

Tim 5 points 3rb 
West 2 pts 1 rb

versus

Adams 12pts 11 rb 
Kanter 8pts 13 rb.

Playing Boban when both Adams and Kanter are playing is the only chance

So is Kanter worth max?

He's going to get better. He's almost there now
