Don’t let the relative “closeness” of these two games fool you: The Suns have thoroughly and convincingly beaten us twice. They are beating us in every aspect of the game. Rebounding? Check. 3-point shooting? Check. Hustle and tenacity? Check and check. Defensive intensity? Great big check. Depth? Check. Role players stepping up? Check. Every advantage we used to own over the Suns is gone. They killed us on the boards…

Last night’s Game 1 felt a lot like Game 1 of the Dallas series. There are a lot of things we can look at. Defensively, the only positive thing we really accomplished was limiting their 3-point shooting. Of course, they hit a couple of clutch 3s late that helped put the game out of reach. We weren’t able to stop Nash from scoring (33 points) or playmaking (10 assists). Usually…

After meeting the Mavericks in the playoffs for the 5th time this decade (and dispatching them for the 3rd), up next is another team also marking their 5th series against us this decade: The Phoenix Suns. As great as the rivalry is between the Spurs and Mavs, the one with the Suns might even be better. The history is certainly as contentious. And the fact that the Suns have yet…

There’s nothing I fear more than a 20 point first half lead. Because you know it won’t last, especially against a team as good as the Mavs and a player as good as Dirk. And then when Dirk picked up his 4th foul in the first half, I just had this sense of dread: “Uh oh; this is way too easy. We’re being set up for a massive comeback.” And…

“For us it’s a Game 7. It has to be. We definitely don’t want to come [to Dallas] for a seventh. We’ve got to approach it as if there’s no tomorrow.”—Manu Ginobili

If you didn’t see this game coming, I don’t know what to tell you. It would have been fantastic if the Spurs could have closed this out in 5, but it also would have been a monumental task. The Mavs are too good, too proud, and too resilient to go down in 5 games, on their home court, losing 4 straight. They came out with intensity that we just couldn’t…

Just sit back, Tim, and enjoy the present the rest of the guys got you. Manu and Tim and Pop told them what you like, and George, DeJuan, Richard, and Antonio went out and got it for you. It’s your birthday, you shouldn’t have to do any heavy lifting today. Get us some boards, play some good defense. But leave the scoring to everybody else; they got this.———————————————————– Things are…

Oh my, that was a good game. Did you see the rotations in the second half? That’s right, you didn’t. Because there weren’t any. At this rate, Game 4 is going to be 5-on-5, call your own fouls, first to 100 wins. Pure craziness. Carlisle seems to be taking a lot of early heat for playing only 7 players in the second half (and really, Marion only spelled Dirk for…
