I would say the defense was the issue in the stretch, splash brothers put down 9 in 3 possessions.Had hopes they would have a good 4th and rally back. Then 3min to go and they're up by 6 and running away with it. What a frustrating end to watch them again fall flat offensively and a rather crap last bucket attempt.
Green had position on Gasol so he could pivot to K.Lo if VV passed him the ball, which he did. If he had been behind Gasol VV likely would have gone to him.Siakem was nowhere in that loss
something didn't look right with Leonard either - turnovers - missed free throws
agree with Evo, those 3's in the final minutes were killer
Lowry is the heart and soul of the team
and although he was shooting well
with a few seconds left and down by one
watching him shoot a low probability 3 is not what I'd wish for
Gasol, who had another good game
was wide open 5 ft. from the rim
I reviewed the stats;This is precisely why Kawhi left san antonio, those team doctors will say anything, and its always better to get a second outside opinion and look after your health, feel bad for KD.
I was just surprised everyone was shooting all those brick 3's when they kept missing them, hardly anyone wanted to play the midrange game or in the paint
I still think the raps got this, especially because KD is out.
