I'm afraid that's about what we're gonna get. OKC may start hacking him if he can't get back in some kind of groove.

That would open the door a bit for Mr Blair, no?

is Blair really any better?

you'd take Splitter for his defense. it wouldn't come down to a Hack a Splitter, mainly because Pop would probably go small with Jax before he'd put Blair in without playing basically any minutes the whole playoffs

Very true. He wouldn't be in the game during crunch time

with Tiago, it is what it is. YOu know he'll try, he'll play his best effort, he'll do those little things that you can't easily see, but FT... no FT, just give up

I thought he had "greatly improved his FT shooting?"

Did I imagine that he had worked with Chip Englund over the summer?

Tiago was a beast tonight. Everytime he gets the ball, he produced something. FTs were bad, but he was excellent overall. It's obvious that OKC ddin't make any plans to avoid Splitter and if they can not adjust, he will rule when he comes from the bench.

It would serve the Spurs right if OKC started Hack A Splitter. It's not just tht he had a bad night at the line but most of the shots weren't even close!

You may have heard about the NBA lockout.
No player worked with any coach over the summer.

Spurs were #19 in the league in FT% this year. I don't have historical figures, but in my recollection they have never been that good at FTs. The Spurs used to have this one guy who averaged 57% over his career shooting free throws. He always said, "It is what it is." and for some reason Pop put up with him. Incredibly, they even hung his #12 jersey in the rafters. Maybe we should ease up on Tiago?

honestly though, you think OKC would go with Hack a Splitter? with Kendrick Perkins dangerously foul prone early in the game/Ibaka a key piece who can't afford fouls/Sefolosha who's a good defender and needs to be out there/their backup bigs need to stay out of foul trouble because of Perkins' tendencies, who would they give 3-5 fouls with without getting in a horrible jam late in the game?

Pop might accidentally instruct Bonner to foul Splitter if he's not careful.

Maybe he's just trying to fit in as a Spur.

Tiago has been horrible from the free throw line. I wonder if the moment is too big for him. Tiago has never (since I've been watching him) been a stellar free throw shooter, but it seems that his percentage has gotten much worse in the playoffs. If I was on the other bench, I would be a fool not to foul him every time he tries to shoot the ball. You could potentially cut a teams point production (per possession) in half (at least) every minute Tiago is in the game. That would give a team an advantage. I hope that does not happen, but it is there for the Thunder to exploit.

Tiago was great - only thing he did bad besides the FT was the ball fumbling under the basket. He catches a couple of those and we're up 10 in the 1st half.

totally. other than his poor FT shooting, he did extremely well out there (probably tied Duncan for our best big that night overall).

if horrendous FT shooting would override really good defense, Bruce Bowen would have never seen any minutes on the court.

If these games are decided by 3 points or less, he will have to practice practice practice until he can hit at least 75% free throws

Blair historically has seen good games against OKC, so why would him getting more of Splitter's minutes be such a bad thing

he was in at least a groove then. now he's sat the majority of 9 games and he's not the best in shape to start with. what hurt OKC with Blair was that he'd fake a pick and roll to the basket which would neutralize Ibaka who'd want to contest Parker's shot or drive.

Diaw doesn't do that, but Splitter does actually set the pick and roll to the basket. i'd prefer Tiago start if that's the case (and you saw what he did vs. OKC) than play Blair at all.

If the games are decided by three points or less, then Pop has more to look at than FT%.

Take care of the low-hanging fruit (Ball movement, transition defense, etc) and it's a double digit win every night. Maybe a loss in the next four games.
Spurs are 44-4 in the last 48 games Parker has played. Play Spurs basketball, and the rest takes care of itself. Spurs don't lose 4 of the next 6.

Why not have Splitter throw in the ball and not come in bounds. The person that was going to foul him would wait for him to come in and the rest of the team would have a 4 on 4.
