On this episode of the Spurscast, we discuss the week that was for the San Antonio Spurs. What we liked, and didn't like from the Spurs in the past few games. We also talk other Spurs news.
In the second half of the show, we dive right into the main topic: Are there any lingering concerns from the Spurs loss to the Lakers? We go over the pros and cons of the loss to the Lakers, what this might mean down the road for the Spurs, and much more.
The Spurscast. The first and original San Antonio Spurs podcast.
I know that size is an obvious concern for the Spurs but I really think Richard Jefferson will be the difference maker for the Spurs in the playoffs. Just my thoughts.
I'm sure we can beat the Lakers the next tome around. @II I agree what you said about the Lakers' frontcourt. But IF Tiago pans out well from here going into the playoffs, I think we'll be really tough to beat. Go Spurs Go!
@DennisM @II I agree. I'd love to see him get at least 15+ min per game until the playoffs. He's going to need to be confident and consistent for us to get passed the Lake Show. i had the chance to go to the game in LA where Dice tipped in the winner. The two things that stand out in my mind from that game was THE TIP (of course) and the fact that we couldn't get a "clean" rebound throughout the entire game. Just that fact, not counting the O rebounds given up, hurt our fast break game. Duncan is the best outlet passer in the league, but not when the ball is being tipped about. Go Splitter Go!
@Andrews "The Spurs can still improve", "it's just one game", and "it was just bound to happen" are all true statements. But what is also true is the Lakers' length is the only thing that can beat our guys in the playoffs, if they are healthy. I can't point fingers; this franchise has given its fans everything it can and has given a small(ish) market more than it deserves. BUT length and strength in the front court is THE vunerability we have to worry about. Regardless, GO SPURS GO!
I'm not to worried about the Spurs loss to the Lakers. They dominated at the AT&T Center and it's only third loss at home all season it was just bound to happen.
