Tiago and Duncan then Diaw and Blair. VIDEO ABOVE: a double screen and roll using McDyess and Blair. This can be done with Tiago and Duncan, and Blair and Diaw and all kinds of combinations. This was a play Pop called moments after Tim Duncan went down with an injury in first half of this game. Pop took charge and called a play to calm things down. (see full video). Look how pathetic and late the big man who gets picked is. Pop's adjustments over time are not going to be the issue. If anything, Pop has more control and a better game plan. (check the dope play above) The problem here is execution and particularly on the defensive end. You guys at the AT&T Center need to make a lot of noise and get into the heads of these kids. If it's true that the Spurs need to muscle them a bit in Game 5, bump 'em, bruise 'em and hurt 'em a little to break their rhythm, then you fans at the game (and a possible Game 7) need to do everything you can to get them frustrated, annoyed and out-of-sorts. Danny Green has been absent in this series offensively, it's killin. I think Pop was smart, smart, smart to keep DeJuan Blair out as long as he did - he's going to be fresh when others are fading. I would like to see Blair and Green on the court at the same time. I think you might see Blair 3d (drive, draw, dish) and Green find the stroke. Our work has to happen at the defensive end because the fast-break points and endless jumpers are wrecking our offense. Tony couldn't get anything going because there were so few transition opportunities. Diaw is making me nuts. Up, down, Up, down. He was useful against the weak sisters, Utah and the Clips, but the vaunted "special language between him and Tony as Frenchmen" is gone 'cause of the crazy long armed Thunder. Bring Diaw in later in the game to pound and enforce. I know he is a soft-hands big man, but I mean he should use the physical play as a tactic to get space to hit those sweet jumpers and make the excellent passes he makes. He needs to bang first, and maybe even off the bench. I'd rather start Tiago with Duncan, actually. Start Tiago and Duncan and bring Diaw and Blair off the bench. But Pop knows best. check out for example, the double screen and roll in the video. This could be done to great effect with Tiago and Timmeh and Blair and Diaw against these rooks looking to prevent the pocket 3.
