Iron Will

When watching game 4 following the play where Duncan should have drawn a charge on Dirk but ended up being called for the blocking foul (he was set and outside the protected area), he was as angry as I've seen him. Afterward he started to punish the Mavs inside and the Spurs got a stop and the anger kind of morphed into a steely focused resolve and determination that kind of permeated the team kind of like "lets take thse guys apart" . The aggressiveness was stepped up but in a focused way.

Then Pop inexplicably called a time out...

Poof...that intense focused resolve evaporated and we were back to chipping away as usual (especially on defense).

I know we had many opportunities to win the game... but our composure at the very end of games of late has not been the killer instinct--the focused steely determination. I caught a glimpse of it and wanted them to feed it and make it grow... its in there...the capacity to blow out the Mavs is in there.

Sometimes you have to wash your brain of all the extraneous analysis and crap, free your mind of the distractions, and just play the game from the gut, trust the ingrained instincts and senses honed over the season to guide your play.

this is our game baby, i completely agree with your last paragraph...we have to stop thinking so much, overanalyzing every play to see the "what if's" and just go out there DO IT and think ALRIGHT, WHENS THE NEXT GAME...

LETS DO THIS BABY, ONE MIND, ONE HEART, ONE CITY....SPURS IN 7
