San Antonio Spurs Short Season 2011-2012**

These guys have insane ball movement... Also, they hit everything in the 4th. Even guys like Neal. That three off of the screen was insane. I know he is a really good shooter, but where the hell does Pop find these guys? Wow. They have to start missing at some point right? Probably not because of the open shots created by the great ball movement.
That 5-7 minute stretch in the third quarter was probably the most beautiful sequence of Spurs basketball I have ever seen. The ball movement, the spacing, etc. Freaking amazing.

Kudos to the Thunder for coming back from that. Almost any other team would have waved the white flag IMO.

that was hard to watch. The Thunder were just running around without a clue what to do.

Spurs are just playing a way more intelligent type of basketball.

It always seems that the Spurs put on one 5 min spurt a game where there offence is unstoppable. I just see it every game and that spurt puts the Spurs in a position to win.
Hack a splitter worked though lol

They did it last year also but what happened when they did go on a few minute droughts was that their defense wouldn't be able to sustain those droughts. A 10 point lead last year would quickly dwindle because they couldn't stop anyone.
These mutha f**kas have not lost in a minute!!!!

It didn't help last year that the spurs were banged up bad come playoff time especially Manu.
Just looked at the line for tomorrow nights game OKC is a 3.5 point favorite. Thought this game may have been a pick considering its back in Oklahoma.
Just read a stat that if you would of bet $100 a game on San Antonio this year against the spread you would be up $2470 for the season

I think OKC loses and then wins in Game 4. Either way I had Spurs in 5
I don't think OKC's small switch screens lineup will bother the Spurs much. Parker has seen every defense imaginable in his career and knows exactly what to do wih it, Tim Duncan will eventually get a post mismatch and has shown he is still very effective in that spot from the first two series and Pop will be ready for it.

Manu would also own penetration if OKC goes small and switches.

The only thing I can think for reasons the Spurs lose is if they go on a massive drought and OKC hits a high percentage of tough shots. Other than that, SA is playing smarter and better basketball.

Yea I think if the Spurs can avoid a drought like they had in game two then there isn't a way they lose tonight. Hopefully they pull it out.

OKC has got to be kicking themselves for giving up home court throughout.
