Game 1 wasn’t so bad…

 

We are down 0-1, but it's not all bad. Game 1's according to POP are the times to figure out our opponent, but we had a chance to steal one on the road. If Manu hit that 3 pointer we might be looking at another double overtime thriller. All that aside, here are my thoughts on the game. The good, and the bad.

The Good

  • We lost by single digits.
    Fouling after Manu's three put them up by 9
  • Tony Parker still got it.
    His driving through the lane was beautiful, but he has to finish.
  • Duncan showed up with another double-double.
    Solid game and I'm glad he has been consistent in the playoffs.
  • Manu was being Manu.
    He got to the cup and was very aggressive.
  • McDyess is playing like a man possessed.
    His hustle, defense, and rebounds were tremendous.
  • Bogans showed why he deserves to be out there.
    He was bringing physical defense, and he actually hit a three. *COUGH* Roger Mason *COUGH*
  • We got to the line A LOT.
    We played aggressive and drew fouls. More on this later...
  • The suns are begging for a series victory.
    "It's R Turn" "Please just let us have one"

The Bad

  • We lost.
    It never feels good.
  • George Hill has terrible match-ups. His +/- was -22.
    The only good one is Dragic. Nash is too fast, Richardson is too big.
  • Roger Mason will NEVER hit another 3.
    No defense, okay we knew that. No Three point shooting, WTF!! That's all he does. Time for Bogans.
  • RJ: become a spot up shooter.
    He'll never be THE GUY on this team. Play defense, spot up and shoot. Become... Bruce Bowen.
  • Bonner why are you dribbling?
    Honestly he has one nice tear drop and then he dribbles off his foot.
  • BLAIR! The ROAR's have gone away.
    His hustle stats have gone away and A'm'a'r'e dominated him.
  • Manu was being Manu.
    He tried to do too much. Too many threes when there were better options.
  • Missed Free throws KILLED us.Or shall I say "Dwim Howcun's" free throws killed us.
    4-9 is not going to get it done and neither is 48% during the playoffs.
