“There is no stop until the board is secured.”
That was Gregg Popovich after Tuesday's Game 5 victory over the Golden State Warriors. It was the first time in the series and only second time in the playoffs they've won the rebounding battle. This series has been particularly rough the San Antonio Spurs have allowed the Warriors to grab over 51 rebounds per game, including 13.4 offensive boards per game.
Make no mistake, the Spurs have done a really good on defense this series, especially on Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, but they're a -31 on the boards for the series. A good example of the Spurs' rebounding woes came in Game 4's overtime loss, when the Warriors grabbed 19 offensive rebounds and converted those in to 16 second chance points.no comments
