San Antonio Spurs: Takeaways from Game 6 in Houston

13 May 2017

The only time we saw the Spurs get creative with their adjustments was between Games 1 and 2. Instead, it should prioritize the addition of perimeter defenders who can spell Patrick Beverley and Trevor Ariza, thereby ensuring the squad has legitimate stoppers on the floor at all times and never forcing too much point-preventing responsibility onto the shoulders of Harden and the other primary scorers. Coming into Game 6, he had averaged a speed of approximately 3.55 miles per hour throughout the 2017 playoffs. Leonard maybe could have played in Game 6 against Houston, and he suggested he would after being injured in Game 5, but all indications are Gregg Popovich made the decision Leonard would not play. "We need to get better defensively".

Houston coach Mike D'Antoni asserted that rest is something that will happen occasionally next season. "I can get him off the ball some. Last night will be the topic of conversation for a few days, but I think outside of that, once people continue to talk they understand the amount of work that he put into the season, the history that he created, the position that he put us all in to be successful, so those are the things that I think about". And even more head scratching, Harden didn't attempt a single shot in the first quarter, a very uncharacteristic move by one of the league's best scorers.

Morey said Harden was devastated and that the organization will soon schedule a meeting with him to discuss the offseason. "You know, yesterday, the guy hardest on James was James", Morey continued.

That will be a task for Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey, who did a brilliant job last summer in hiring D'Antoni and then building a team that fit his vision - including a pair of questionable signings in Eric Gordon and Ryan Anderson that proved to be flawless fits. "Obviously, we'll sit down".

He added: "We're building a league that's accessible to players and fans, sustainable, and exciting for everyone involved". The Overwatch League was first announced in November at Blizzard's annual BlizzCon convention in Anaheim, California.

And while Harden looked terrible and not like himself Thursday, ample credit belongs to the Spurs for their defensive showing. They stuck to what they figured would work, the players bought in, and it paid off in Games 5 and 6. He credited the Spurs for causing his issues.

"We're just going to enjoy this one right now until midnight, at least", Danny Green said.

Spurs Run Rockets Out of Playoffs
When the Spurs opened the second half with an 8-1 burst sparked by six points from Aldridge, the advantage ballooned to 26 points. San Antonio's wing duo of Danny Green and Jonathan Simmons played lockdown defence as Harden coughed up six turnovers.

"I really just didn't have a rhythm at the beginning of the game", he explained. "They murdered us that in first game with rebounds, but that was the first game of the season".
