I hope this loss stings deep. Deeper than any loss these guys have ever experienced on the court. Maybe they'll learn how to close games to avoid this type of embarrassment. Despite playing 45 minutes of great basketball, they're now a national punch-line. You don't piss away a 16-point lead in 4 minutes and earn respect. To happen for the 2nd game in a row is unthinkable. This time they got the loss they so rightly deserved.
If there is one positive (which sounds ridiculous by the way) it's that we lost game 1 in the previous series and bounced back. That game was also a heart-breaker and we lost Lee all on the same night. We let San Antonio get away with one. We need to return the favor in game 2. Let's see what this team is made of.
As crazy as it sounds, Duncan leaving the game helped the Spurs tremendously. That actually sparked their run. They started to run with a smaller lineup, were more aggressive going to the basket, and got their 3 point shooters open.
