thread is spot-on as well:
Both teams are also well-coached. We know Thibodeau's background, but Spolestra has had more than 10 years experience with Pat Riley. Carlisle has had great defensive background. These head coaches has made their team commit to defense, something that is an after thought with the Raps. Very disappointed with Mike Brown not being available.
