Then on the final possession of the game the Spurs guarded Kobe very well, but he has to come to Pau. He didn't and Pau had to shoot a three pointer. This is where Nash will really help. He knows how to get guys the ball down the stretch of ball games which is gonna be critical in the playoffs.
[View Full Quote]Overall can't fault the effort. The team played very hard and very good defense. They held one of the most explosive offenses in basketball to just 84 points. Offensively we just couldn't shoot from the outside. We only made 6 out of 20 shot attempts from distance. That's where not having Blake and Nash hurt. They're probably our two best floor spacers. The long was very clogged for Howard and also Pau has to give us more. Just 10 points tonight. That's pathetic for a guy as skilled as him. He's being paid nearly 20 million a year and he's gotta produce.
Pau isn't going to drop 30 every game. He put up a double double with 5 assists and a couple blocks to go along.
Jodie Meeks.. championship.
