I remember a lot of people saying Parker was crappy PG.

Heh..... nah.

So 2-0 Spurs, Again, no disrespect to the OKC team, but if they weren't intimidated before, they sure are now.

OKC is shooting desperate jump shots while SAS is weaving through the defense and getting gimmies.

This is over unless OKC can make major adjustments.

I'm not sure that they can TBH.... The Thunder just don't pass it well enough to get the easy shots that SA does.

If OKC ends up getting swept they should really look into revisiting that rumoured Westbrook for Rondo deal. I really think it would benefit both teams.

Rondo dishing it to KD and Harden would be fantastic... and a young core of Westbrook, Bradley and Green is a nice quick rebuild for BOS (esp if they keep Pierce and KG for another 2-3 years).

I don't know about Durant at the 4 but I agree, SA had a little trouble when OKC went small ball. Spurs are a machine though, they have 5 guys that have plays for them whereas OKC has 3 - that's a massive edge to the Spurs.

Durant at the four spot only works in small doses. Defensively he's better off playing the two spot.

If OKC goes small, it will be interesting to see how Duncan (and to some extent Diaw and Splitter) handle it as logically they should get more touches in offense in this scenario. Most likely they will give some easy passes to perimeter guys and SA will make some kind of record in made three's.

I've been thinking all day about the one corner 3 Parker got in the 3rd quarter. Or maybe it was the 2nd. Anyway he was so insanely wide open. I don't think I've ever seen anyone shoot a 3 so open. It would be hard to disperse the other 9 players equal distances across the entire court and still have him that wide open. It reminded me of my battleship strategy of grouping all my bigger boats in one area and leaving my little tugboat guy out alone in open space.

Durant hardly ever guards 2 guards, and if he does its for a very short period of time, like against Kobe, so how can you determine hes best off playing the 2? Hes at his best at his natural position, the 3.

They need to play more Ibaka and Shefo in the 4th and go small. Still looks rather difficult.

Thank you - I thought of asking you to find that clip, but didn't want to be presumptious.
