Was only partially watching this while playing poker. My pocket kings got busted on an all-in as the refs made that call at the end.
It looked like the kind of game Popovich talked about in terms of threes. The cool thing is they somehow stayed in this game, and even with so many misses at the rim on top of everything else. Still a couple of pretty good looking threes go in and they walk away happy. Gotta feel mostly happy at defending a top ten offense pretty well. It still feels like that can get better, and they can still definitely refine the offensive feel between each other.
It feels like Siakam should maybe get trusted more in clutch situations. Leonard going up against multiple defenders is not much better than DeMar going at multiple defenders.
pretty much spot on, except they did go to siakam a few times down the stretch, and it didn't amount to much. a couple of back down dribbles into the teeth of the defense, and nothing loose enough to drop a siakam-spin-move. they just played straight up post D against him and it snuffed him out.
