Blair will lick some wounds. If Pop wants Nasty, put Blair in the game! Blairs a beast! Bonner...not so much. He ran around with trex arms and didn't do much. If Diaw is Bonner and Blair together, then play him more and leave Bonner on bench.
FREE BLAIR!

Bonner shouldn't get anymore playing time for the rest of the season. Blair should have those minutes. Also, Spurs stop turning the freakin ball over. 21 turnovers tonight!!! Stop playing as if your the underdog in the series!! Also, might have to switch up the starting lineup for game 4. Maybe start Blair and Jackson this time around.

We gotta look at the game the way the players do........make adjustments, move on, and prepare for game 4...I'm already over the loss....nuff'said

Remember when Pop commented that he wanted to lose Game 4 against the Clips, but we had to go and pull within 10 at halftime so he couldn't take the starters out?

I'm pretty sure this game was postmarked at halftime. Drop the pressure of the streak, check out what they're going to try in Game 4 and adjust accordingly, let our guys rest a bit on a night when their energy outgunned us anyway (note the minutes for the Big 3), and go get games 4 and 5.

I hadnt heard that but is interesting as I was saying to mates that I am down for a rest in the regular season but not in conference finals, I would think he would at least want to use the time to try different things with the starting 5 to adjust for next game rather than tapping out and sending in even Anderson. When Westbrook threw down the alley and it was heading for 30 points I tapped out and thought if we are not even going to defend as a 2nd unit then we have nothing.

They put that dude out there I can't say his name now lol ON PARKER! I can't spell it! Throw a monkey wrench at them and throw Blair in a game 4 or 5 and adjust! I can seriously see that working as well, call me nuts but him over Bonner can't be much worse being BONNER CAN NOT SCORE inside at all nor can he rebound!

That is one little adjustment the SPURS SHOULD make but it could be huge in the end.

Blair will certainly play the way we came out looking timid and passive. We need his strength and hustle now to battle OkC down low. Bonner is useless unless making shots and he's not making them, making the case for him to either not play or not play much at all. Pop will make the necessary adjustments and freeing tony from Thabo will open up out offense and allow us to resemble the dominant offense were all accustomed to seeing. I am confident that our guys took this loss as motivation and as a wake up call. Anyone in their right mind would ease up a little after victories coming left and right regardless of well we played that game. We need to match OKCs intensity right off the bat. Next game OKC needs to win again, but will be interestig if they can duplicate their effort and reveal a wild card to stun like they did yeaterday in game 3. Optimistically, i think they just played their best hand! In pop we trust ladies and gents, in POp we trust.

Pop might agree with you. the thing about that is, i don't think Pop is dumb enough to make Blair our 3rd/4th big off the bench with Splitter because then the bigs will stay in the paint and contest every drive.

if Pop decides no Bonner, then expect Blair to start next to Duncan and Diaw off the bench with Splitter. there's really no other way out of that if the Red Rocket gets 3rd string status unless the coach would trust a Blair/Diaw tandem off the bench.
