Duncan Notices Most Important Attribute of Spurs' Bench

When the San Antonio Spurs dominated the Houston Rockets on Friday night, they didn't have a player who stood out from the ordinary. You had some great passes from Nando De Colo and a Tim Duncan dunk over Patrick Patterson (don't forget Matt Bonner throwing it down to the delight of everyone cheering the Silver & Black), but it was an overall team effort.

The spurs Bench , which is really everyone outside of the big 3, are playing great, simple basketball. Gang rebounds on the defensive end, good guard ball handling through a fast break, leading to easy points or easier offensive sets. Offensively the spurs are playing pick and roll, setting back screens for a motion offense, and cutting. The key to the offense is the entire teams ability to pass the ball to an open man. A good pass to a cutting player or an open 3 point shooter isn't complex basketball, it's having skilled players knowing how to play.

I think Dejuan and even Anderson are playing so much better now because they can fit in with guys who can share the ball and don't slow the rhythm of the game.

If the spurs can keep this up, they will out work the thunder, lakers, and the heat based on simple motion sets.
