1. Leonard didn't play the night before. (Knee,Rest)

3. Manu I think only played 18min
4. Tony I think played 26-28min.
5. They left LA to Sac. Not that far away.
6. Where was the tough guy Tiago that's been playin in TD absence.
THEY GOT BIG BOYd
They controlled tempo, aggression, kept their cool. That's our game! Spurs didn't do any of that, which is what Pop was sayin about OKC "IDENTITY THEFT"! They stole our game!
Btb shouldn't have been that big a deal, in this case. They showed toughness, Spurs didn't it just that simple.
I'm just mad and disgusted and I'm pretty sure they (Spurs) were too.
I'm just sayin D.Lee has always had good games vs Spurs and Boguet(?)Wasn't even playin, he always has big # vs Spurs.
That is the big question. He was on the floor for 26 minutes with a +/- of +10. He went 4 of 7 for 10 points and 5 boards. HE HAD ZERO FOULS! So where was he? He was riding the pine while TD played 4 down with a "spread the floor" Boris Diaw in Tiago's place. Then we had a one step slow Ginobili at the top of the key playing PG.
This is the same formula that lost us the last 2 games of the season last year.
That can't be the formula anymore.
It is TP with the ball in the 4th quarter playing pick and roll with Tiago. Duncan being the pop option at the elbow. Manu and Leonard spotting up, slashing, back dooring. . . etc.
