It's funny, the more and more I watch this team play, the more I realize that we resemble the Spurs more than the Suns (our early comparison). It's actually, scary how close we resemble them when we play the two man game with Jose and Bosh.
Yes, yes, yes...

I said this last year when we were 'on' that we resembled the Spurs more than the Suns. We get fastbreak points through defense not by running just for the sake of running.

Now if these guys start closing out faster on shooters like Parker started doing in the Boston game to Allen the D will be even better.
