Re: “Game 6 Preview: The Full Experience

To add to JackS' point, the Spurs fans were writing obits after Game 4. No joke, it was a lot of "Fire Popovich / Trade Parker," as if San Antonio was infected by the worst of Memphis-style fatalism.

I wish this series was best of n+1, where we choose n at some later date, because the way both teams are going at it I don't wont to see it end. This has been some of the most entertaining basketball I remember seeing.

Re: “Game 3 Notebook: Grizzlies 91, Spurs 88

Randolf is a better 3-pt shooter than his record indicates. Some of those missed attempts were rushed from a short shot clock or at the end of a quarter. For the past two years he has been very mature about looking for a better option before launching deep shots, and that play was no exception. Having said that, he did rush his last shot.

Re: “Series Preview: Ten Questions (and Answers) about Grizzlies-Spurs

Excellent summary, Chris. I think Darrell Arthur might have more of the game-changing ability than O.J. because he is one of the few players quick enough and tall enough to help defend a pick & roll and then recover to prevent his man from shooting an open three. I agree that the back court is probably where we will have the most trouble, espcecially the Parker/Hill combo. Conley is not fast enough on defense to stay in front of them and keep them out of the lane. Similarly their guards are not that good defensively to keep Conley out of the paint, but they sort of direct the opponent's guards into traps where the front court can better defend the rim. No matter what, though, you're right about the Tony/Manu battle. That will be worth the price of admission, the rest is just icing.
