The only excitement to come out of tonight’s game (besides the sheer jubilation of the crowd with the Warriors almost hitting 100 points) was minutes-watching and trying to predict what Pop will do tomorrow night against the Lakers regarding rotations, who plays, etc. After last week’s humiliating thumping at the hands of the Kobe-less Lakers, it seems the Spurs would have something to prove. But I could also see Pop going the other direction, sitting all of the Big 3, giving a giant middle finger and F-You to the league, and more or less conceding the game.
In all honesty, I wouldn’t mind seeing that. If Pop rests Duncan, Parker, and Ginobili (or any combination thereof), the Lakers can’t win. If they win the game, they were supposed to, and it proves nothing; if they lose against the Spurs B-Team, then suddenly the Spurs regain the upper hand. Plus, we still have one more game at home against them on Friday, which is better conditions for a ‘statement’ game.
Also of interesting note: with OKC losing tonight in LA to the Clippers, the Spurs once again climb into first place in the West by percentage points, with one less loss than the Thunder. There are so many possible playoff scenarios in play, I don’t even want to think about it. I’m much less concerned with if we get the 1 seed or the 2 seed, and more concerned with which teams end up in the 3,6, 7 bracket, and which teams end up in the 4, 5, 8 bracket. It’s all about the match-ups, so the seed matters less than which team we might potentially face in the 2nd round.
