A little nugget about the Denver game

It appeared to me by their body language and than play that the Spurs had a subcontious let down last night.

Perhaps, since it was the first game in who knows how long they had their entire team playing they mentally relaxed.

I think they were out of rhythm/overloaded mentally with trying to re-integrate Manu and TJ.

i don't think they looked very excited to play. Blair's injury may be a cause of that, but they all came out flat.

i think it's also the fact James Anderson hasn't been in the rotation now we're plugging him by force for a trade and he's ruining our chemistry. i mean, James Anderson was in BEFORE Ginobili last game to backup Green. if that doesn't mess up some rhythm, dunno what does.

It was a mental let down. The Nuggets were undermanned and had no business winning.

And I agree that getting guys back into the rotation caused some problems. The thing that I saw happening was even Tony deferring to Manu. This is Tony's team now. They need to keep playing the way they were playing, and work Manu in as a complementary piece. That will also hopefully lessen the chance that Manu get's injured again.

Then there's no excuse for Tony playing poorly from the start especially since Manu came off the bench anyway. Besides Manu barely did anything in the game and only took five shots throughout the game. The other players took more.

It doesn't matter how they started. They all started off bad. It doesn't even matter how many shots he took. When Manu is in the game, they let him handle the ball and run things. For the sake of keeping the team in a groove, and Manu's health, they need to let Tony run things. It's worked so far. You can still play Manu 25 minutes a game, and you can even let him finish the game. But this team isn't successful right now because of Manu. It's because Tony was the focal point and everyone fed off of him.

unlike most other teams, spurs losses aren't really true losses.

somtimes its due to fatigue from back2back,
sometimes its rustiness such as after allstar weekend.
sometimes its b/c of injury, or change in lineup that causes it so it doesn't really count as players are getting acclimated.
sometimes its because it was a away game and the other teams crowd was an issue.
and is it just me or sometimes the team that they play sux, so its just kinda mental where they let their gaurd down cause its just a crappy team.

i dont think there are any real losses yet this season.
and the ones that seem like it, we kinda know its all CIA pop. its not like we lost, it was just setup that way. its all about the big pictures. chippin away at that stone.

My gut agrees with you.

My brain says that other team's fans feel the exact same way.

I agree if Blair had not been injured at the start this would have been a different game.

Blair has had some great games against the Nuggets. Like career best type games.

Wasn't Timmy suffering flu-like symptoms? I had the flu last month and it was tough to deal with it, and playing basketball for me was not possible. Still, if Timmy makes those two fts late, that could have been another game that the Spurs reeled back in for a win. Alas, give denver credit for winning a game. Still, two out of three ain't bad.. Go Spurs Go..

Is there an Excused Loss column in the standings? If so, I missed it. Do Excused Losses count less than a Real Loss?

A loss is a loss. A win is a win. For every one of the Excused Losses, you could probably find a Lucky Win.
And yet, only one Win column and a single Loss column are listed in the standings.

If your post was made in sarcasm, I apologize for missing it.

He was suffering from flu-like symptoms, you're right. So that was a factor.

*IF* it's made in sarcasm?



Are you even half serious or your post was also made in sarcasm?

I reckon it's made in plastic.

Them not having Tyson Chandler tonight was big. It surely wouldn't have been a blowout with him inside.
