Mike Brown- especially - knows what the Spurs run. He, like other playoff contenders - knows that the way you stop the Spurs is to stop Tony Parker. They stopped Parker. Others will too, so unless they figure out a way to run something else, and quick, this is going to keep happening.
Its been a year since the early dismissal at the hands of the Grizzlies, who did the same thing the Lakers did last night. They clogged up the middle, controlled the boards and stopped Parker.
Did we learn anything?
Let's hope so. It doesn't look like it, but let's hope so.
