San Antonio Spurs Summer League: Game 4 - Postgame Discussion Thread

Brick_medium

It would be easy to focus on the negatives of this game: Hill's sloppy play, Mahinmi's penchant for Summer League fouls and his one rebound in 16 minutes, Gist's flat jumper and his lack of handles. We could mention Blair's inefficiency in his first 17 minutes of playing time, the horrid free throw shooting percentage, the complete lack on interior defense throughout the game, or would-be-sharpshooter McClinton's abduction by pod people. We could call it an unmitigated disaster, we really could...

...What was my point again?

Oh, right! But we shouldn't. Instead, let's talk about Hairston's relative solidity, Blair's footwork, his work on the defensive glass (although it wasn't as good as the boxscore suggests) and his multiple "and one"s,Taylor proving he was a honest-to-goodness sorta-kinda not-NBA-level-but-hey basketball player, at least for a night. And of course remember McClinton's first and only triple, that shining jewel that will always hold a special place in our hearts.

Think of this post as a place for catharsis, and let it all out - after the jump.

The boxscore. I'm sorry you had to see this.
