Are the Spurs content with a 1-1 split?
 
Feels like a trap game for some reason. Lebron only with a few points and leaving shooters open. Need to let Leonard do his thing defensively on James until he decides to go crazy. Plus Leonard has no fouls and Manu looks lost so far.

No but the referees are?

MRJONESIII 06-09-13 09:18 PM

I guess they went there to get one. But there were a few guys that looked like hammered dog crap.... Especially Manu and Tiago. If they sign either one of those guys to larger than expected contracts, I'll be disappointed. Tiago like Bonner... Are not built for the playoffs. Stephen Jackson is being missed right now. Kawhi is using a lot of energy on Lebron. Would be nice to have both them on the court together.

Agree, Manu especially looked really bad, he and TP we not strong with the ball at all!

MRJONESIII 06-09-13 09:37 PM

Poor Danny Green didn't get any help today. 2 good games for DG4. Hopefully it continues for him. Can we call him the most consistent in 2 games? Which is bad for us.

I didnt see any adjustments by the spurs and the inability and lack of mental focus from manu especially was especially disappointing. facepalm

No breakfast for Manu!

But Manu made the one good play so it makes up for all his suckiness.

Truth be told, Timmy couldn't hit the broad side of a barn either. And they confused TP also.

JuanCaca 06-09-13 09:50 PM

I was remembering documental about fan strategies against visitor teams... like loud party-parade outside hotels or ring phone 2 or 3 times to wakeup opponents star....

now, since it appears manu and others has no gas, we need those loud neighbors outside miami players hotel overnight lolol

That seems to be Manus thing.... Look bad a lot of times and 1 or 2 plays makes up for it. But it's all good, San Antonio hit first and Miami counter punched. Now the next move is on the silver and black. Home cooking always helps.

IMO I would rather have various players have a bad game onthe same night. Not to sure what was inspiring the rotations in game 2. If anyone has some insight I would love to hear it!

Kager 06-10-13 06:18 AM

A 1 - 1 split without getting owned would have been planned.... so not quite what we wanted

tabspur 06-10-13 09:40 AM

I've been one of Manus biggest supporters here, but have to agree, last night was awful. I've also said, we can't win a title without him contributing in a big way. So, in reality, that's where we are this year. We saw last night, we got more touches, more looks, and nice games from Kawhi and Green. We need that from them, but we need Manu to step it up to win in this series. We can live with his game one play, but not last night. But if we are being truthful, the exact same thing can be said about Tony and Tim. Both were horrendous last nite too. Because of his style, Manus play presents itself to look as bad as it was. Because of Timmy's style, we get lost with his game performance when he has a bad game, just like we overlook his typical efficient game. Last night might have been his worst finals game ever.

I'm a little confused on how Pop let it get away. We had turnovers, quick shots, rushed shots, and didn't get back on D. He seemed content to let the game run its course. It's almost as he was using the loss in the fourth quarter to make a point, or motivate his rotation guys. That's an awfully big risk in a finals series. It's going to be hard to win 3 straight at home. I think if we are going to win this, we are going to have to take one more in Miami. We have played them pretty much straight up for 7 quarters there, and lost focus in one. Shows you how little room for that we have.

joyner 06-10-13 10:08 AM

Content? No, but I don't think they're hanging their heads. Miami was always going to come out with as much energy as possible in Game 2. Let 'em wear themselves down and hit back in games 3 and 4 with the short turnarounds.

I don't mean to suggest that the Spurs never intended to play to win, just that they understood the big picture. We never had a chance in Game 2, so might as well come away rested rather than banged up fighting for a win that isn't going to come.

We did what we were suppose to do in Miami, we splitted the games, were you really guys expecting to win both games at MIAMI, over the champs and Joey Crawford referring? Come on, but Manu needs to get it together or we aint winning this thing, at least do not make so many turnovers manu, come on dude, i still support the guy

we were 2-0 before this game with Joey Crawford officiating. he didn't make the Spurs lose this game.

JuanCaca 06-10-13 05:05 PM

anything can happend, (injury, a very good team beating you in your home court) so is stoopid to think for a second, "hey we won game 1, lets give game 2", if you had a chance to compete and win, then go and destroy (Memphis style), if not, why not simply sit tim manu kawhi tony for game 2?

it was a joke with Joey, I was just adding to the sarcasm of the reasons we lost, but there is always that weird feeling with him and referees the spurs.

If anyone blames the REFS for this game they are delusional.
