Live ball turnovers lead to fast break points. Keep them down and you reduce layups. Consider 1/2 28 is 14. 14 possessions @ 50% = 7 shots made, minimum of 14 points lost. Since Miami was playing so well, yet still lost by 15 and the Spurs were playing quite sloppy, one has to think if the Spurs just play well and take care of the ball, they will win.
