    Matty's three at the end of the first half was the difference in this game. It's the troof.

    lol parker gettin a high grade, while he did shit all for 3quarters, turning back harris clock making his bitch for those quarters, then going ice cold not contributing shit for the jazz, spurs already up and pulling away with parker padding his stats for the 4th quarter..........

    first half shouldnt have been a close game if he pulled his head out of his ass, jazz didnt capitalize on shit even when they got the benefit of the calls in the first half and plenty of freebies at the ft line, yet only shot 50% from the line costs them dearly....
    stat padding in the fourth when the lead was cut at 5 with 8 mn to go you're probably the worst ST poster by far

    Fratello with the goods on Bonner 3 pointer. The key was Jackson clearing out the space for Duncan to throw to and Ginobili to run to. Reminds me of soccer where many plays are about passing into space and letting the wing go get it for a cross.

    Another key play not called out by anyone was the Parker back door cut and assist from Duncan late in the 4th. That was a back breaker for the Jazz and another plus for Popovich's grade.

    Does anyone have more of a breakdown on how the Spurs shut down Harris after the first quarter? I couldn't figure it out. Another Popovich special?

    Parker I have to give Parker and 'A'. His MVP performance in the 4th was unbelieveable and that's what MVPs do. They take the challenge, put the team on their back and win the game. Manu used to display that killer instinct. I never thought I'd see it in Parker tbh.

    Bonner Somebody remarked that Bonner couldn't find a way to get his shot. I'd say that's because they were defending him pretty tightly--and that took one of their guys out of the middle so his presence as a perimeter shooter was doing what its supposed to do. Speaking of the lane, it looked like a rugby scrum in there at times and Bonner was pushing and shoving with the rest of them to keep Utah's 3 bigs from simply running over them. I remember on one play where Bonner was boxing out, facing the basket for a rebound and Millsap just blasted him with a shove in the back that threw Bonner about 4 feet forward into TD and Diaw and their men. It was a rough, physical game and Bonner was fighting to keep their bigs from taking over. With 2 blocks and several altered shots, I'd say it was an above average defensive performance in relief. Give him a B-/B.

    Blair the less said the better. He should only play in blowouts and against teams who have 6'5" bigs with no ACLs in both legs. He's trying to recreate himself with the floater so maybe he'll wind up a shooting guard someday.

    Pop Saw Kwahi was overawed by the Utah playoff crowd and wasn't going to be aggressive so he cut his minutes. Good call. Remember how Pop and Parker argued about shorting Parker's minutes in the last game? This time he realized he needed Parker down the stretch and gave him 40, probably more minutes than he played all season. And maybe Parker had enough gas to play great D and O in the 4th because of that decision in the previous game.

    When you look at Pop, you have to consider not just the 'now' like the out of bounds plays he's so good at drawing up but the past moves and the future moves he's thinking about like a grand master in three dimensional chess. I bet other coaches think they are coaching against Yoda.

    While Bonner hasn't been great, his shooting percentage will be good.

    Tiago & Tim down the stretch of a playoff game brought tears to my eyes. Bonner getting thrown around like a vietnamese whore also brought tears to my eyes.

    Watching guys like Green/Tiago/Jax step their game up in the playoffs is so great to see after watching the RJ/Bonner chokejob debacles of the past few seasons.

    Love this team right now.

    Harris just stopped hitting lucky shots, tbh. Most of the shots he hit early on either Parker was right on him or he hit an impossible floater over a big.

    I was out of town and missed the game's second half.

    So I am mindful that my questions are based on incomplete data. Timvp, would you explain to me. Why you gave TD a higher grade than TP? I notice that Tim's shooting percentage was lower than Jefferson's and Parker's. Parker also had a higher percentage than Harris. Tim had 6 rebounds and Tony had 6 assists.

    Tony had five tos, but as you said, he also had the entire Jazz team on his ass the whole game, and he put the team on his back to get 27 points total on something like 10 of 18 shooting.

    I know that it is subjective, but it seems to me sometimes that when Tony scores more points he gets lower grades.


    I am not trying to challenge you, I 'm trying to understand how you grade the two. I know that they are each on their own sliding scale, but TD is a first round HOF and yet you seem to give him more slack than TP on a pretty regular basis and I don't understand why.

    Please don't get pissed because I am really trying to understand, not criticize.

    ^That's what those words underneath the grades are for, tbh. I can't really explain it more clearly. Parker was great in money time but he had a rather large stretch of mediocre play (2-for-9 over a stretch of nearly 30 minutes with as many turnovers as assists). Duncan was great defensively throughout and was a consistent asset on offense.

    Duncan was closer to an A than Parker was to an A-, fwiw.

    I was shocked on who the crowd disappear in the second half. For a young inexperienced team like Utah, they need a great crowd behind them and they didn't get it. Maybe Jazz will have a reaction in the next game to avoid the sweep, but I got the feeling that everybody (fans, coaches and players) have given up.

    Manu doesn't need to take his game up a notch. He's doing fine. We don't need more than the points we won by. We need a healthy Manu. When the time comes, Manu will crank it up. Right now I want him to play within the flow of the game, not try to do too much at either end and end up getting injured.

    We are used to seeing Ginobili be the designated game-taker-overer in the late 4th quarter.

    That role has moved to Tony this year. Ginobili has become leader of the 2nd unit, and facilitator, defender, and rebounder in the late stages.

    It's not even about closing games though. I'll be the first to admit that he played a well-rounded game last night. He set teammates up and he rebounded. Manu really didn't need to score.

    Against Utah it doesn't matter but once we start dealing with the elites, we'll need a little more than 6 points out of him imo. He doesn't have to be magical but around 10-12 should be within reach for him.

    Correct. The guy knows the game better than anyone else on TV.

    This was his second PO Spurs game. I wouldn't be surprised if he's asking for Spurs games.

    what do you think about moving Manu back to the starting lineup and moving Danny Green back to the bench. Manu doesn't bring the energy anymore that made him a great sixth man all of these years and of course can't score. I thought he was sleepwalking through most of the game. Danny Green on the other hand has been amazing and we need that kind of energy off the bench.
    Manu doesn't bring the energy anymore? First thing he did in game 3 was score a pair of layups and dish Splitter a perfect pass in the P&R for another hoop.

    You spurs fans kill me.

    I gotta say, the nba officials sometimes seem to have a vendetta against Matt Bonner.

    I didn't like the horseshit foul called on Bonner near the end of the 1st half. Some kind of imaginary push off on Favors that awarded him free throws. Bonner clearly didn't agree with the call, just threw his hands up in disgust.

    I do sympathize with him sometimes and don't fault him at all for letting up on his physical play. Especially in cases such as this.

    SALT LAKE CITY — The Spurs hadn’t run the play all year, but they knew what they were doing. That was clear when the Spurs came out of their huddle Saturday night at the end of the first half, with 3.4 seconds left, trailing by one.

    Bonner getting two blocks was one of the more interesting things I'd seen. The block on favors was pretty legit too.

    Played 15 minutes. Just right.

    Who did Bonner block first?

    And also, who did Splitter block and when?

    bonner probably had one of those team blocks where burks just threw his body into 3 spurs with their hands up and they just decided to give it to bonner
    another was basically a fluke hands up block on favors
    favors got away with a lot of physical play on bonner, he even threw bonner away and bonner was called for the foul on one play

    splitters block came on al jefferson on the low block
    he did a good job of not going for the pump fakes and forced him baseline near out of bounds
    he had to throw up garbage while falling out of bounds pretty much while splitter stood their hands up

    Yeah I saw that and was pissed how the hell can Bonner get that foul? I think the ref's do call tick tacky fouls on Bonner but I think they do because he doesn't stand up for himself.

    If I were him next season when he gets one of those phantom fouls he needs to go ballistic on the ref....I mean just go off were you team has to hold you down..I wanna see slobber coming out of his mouth.... He does that that will end the ticky tacky shit calls he gets!
