Spurs have done a good job on Lebron but have they forgot about the rest of the team ?

If this carries on i can see James turning it on in the second half and burning the Spurs but only if they keep it this close into the 4th period

Unforutnately you couldn't have been more wrong. James was neutralized by the Spurs D, Duncan and Parker both had big games and the Spurs deserved it. Cav's I'm sure will play much better then that the rest of the series
[/quote]

Lebron played better in the second half but this is only game one if the Cavs play a tiny bit better they will win no doubt
[/quote]
Based upon what?
The Spurs 3 big stars are on form already, Bowen has shut down LeBron in the first game, and I wouldn't be surprised if he keeps him fairly quiet for the whole series.

The Spurs will win this series, I honest have no doubts about it.

Are you all there ? Maybe just a Little bit mental ....

Lebron was a non factor and if he turns it uip they can win .... duh

I think these finals are going to go 5 games, like the Stanley Cup. Spurs are just to good.
Btw interesting stat-Kevin Durant couldnt bench press 180lbs. That was one of the most noticable things in the pre draft combine as most other draftees could.

If this, if that.

Does your argument have any real facts in it? I very much doubt it.

Based upon what I've seen off the Spurs defensively I very much doubt even if Lebron turns it on the Cavs could win. Bowen is just an unbelievable Defender even if he does play dirty and the threesome of Duncan, Ginobilli and Parker are proving already too much for the Cav's

My thoughts exactly. Although Bowen is pretty dirty, one thing you cannot fail to admit is that he's one of the best perimeter defenders in the league. Capable of shutting down any player on any given night.

Its best many years since Ive heard anyone say how great the Spurs defence is !! ;D

San Antonio just seemed to have more solidity and overall strength for the Cavs to challenge over a seven game series. By shutting down LJ, just shows how much they rely on him. Sure he wont be as quiet next time up but the Spurs again should have enough to edge the series.

Firstly, for travelling, you can't move both of your feet without dribbling the ball, if you do, it's called travelling and you turn the ball over to the other team.

A pick and roll is a play in which a screen is set by a player and then they will slip behind a defender to get open for a pass.

Basically pick = screen, and roll = slipping behind a defender for a pass.

Hence the name.

IMO Game 3 of the NBA Finals last night was one of the worst Finals games I've seen in along time. How the Cavs lost I'll never know. Spurs were just awful offensively Duncan went 6-17 . In there was ever an opportunity to steal the game for cleveland that was it. I can see it ending on Thursday

If you want an absolute shootout, then it would've been an awful game.

But as far as defense goes, that's one of the best performances by the Spurs in a long time.
