First game in Memphis tonight. We're going to have to bring and it and the crowd out of this one early.

Sounds like Fizdale is planning on starting Z-Bo which might make things a little interesting.

David Fizdale spoke glowingly about Kawhi Leonard on Thursday.

Leonard has a PER of 44.8 during the first two playoff games this year against the Memphis Grizzlies.

"First class individual, tireless work from everything I hear about him," said Fizdale. "He was standing next to me the other night and he wasn't breathing. He wasn't breathing.

"I'm going to check the rulebook and find out if robots are allowed to play in the NBA. I think he bleeds antifreeze. He is special, man."


Fizdale's sound clip is strong man :lol:

not concern, hopefully spurs adjust to game how refs going to start reffing the game

once again why does parker over dribble or play a 2man game with anyone not name kawhi, then when he decides to pass the ball with little left on the shot clock, he puts the receiver in a position to fail a bail out shot...5-0 to 5-9 for grizz 0-9 run first quarter, got them going

Just tuned in before halftime.
I expected us to be down 30 with our entire team in foul trouble at this point with as overboard as everyone has been with Fizdale's comments.
I guess I'll take this.

stupid coach, starting 3rd quarter with bench after 2 parker stupid turnovers

then lead blows +12, kawhi yet to shoot the ball, first shot for 3rd from him was some last second bailout 3pt shot...once again parker and his over dribbling 2man game...

patty mills gives u points on each ring, no impact on game
3rd quarter is not the parker show, pass the ball man

Only bright spot is that Kawhi is playing soo bad that he might take game 4 personally. Everyone else is playing as bad as they usually do....
Even David Lee is playing bad.

patty with the parker show over dribbling...biting on pumpfakes and stupid mismatches...get him out and play someone else, give someone else a shot...actually play simmons... and have green or kawhi bring the ball up, then have kawhi play point creating

Tough to watch, but we knew the Grizz were going to come with a mission tonight. I have us winning the series 4-2, so this is right in line with my prediction. Nevertheless, it's VERY important that we make a great show in G4. Obviously, we want the win, but win or lose, we can't give these bears any more momentum.
I'm not sure what the best thing about Switzerland is, but their flag is a big plus.

stupid coach with the ego tactic clearing the bench to start 3rd quarter only down 8pts, could still chase it...then blows to 20pt lead

then what is he going to do in the interview? stupid arrogant answers? stupid ego trip with players

kawhi only 1 shot attempt in t he 3rd hahaha and no 4th quarter pt...coach ego trip

first 3 quarter, why do the spurs continue to struggle to bring the ball up thee court?

im done with patty mills, why does this clown get the green to go 3-4 straight possessions chucking up bricks even when his open...then on t he other end he gives up just as much pts....dont tell me his coming back next season, his not the answer t o the spurs pg backup woes, let alone a midget sg...

parker and manu better not come back next season

regarding kawhi this game 3, nobody can stop him, yet first half he had a very efficient game..

then pop pulls the plug for no reason when 8pts is easy to grind down and keep in pace with the grizzlies...

ive said enough regarding parker/mills/manu...they continue to ignore the hot hand or the guy closest to them for the easy pass, but does stupid crap with the ball...

did the starters zone out start of 3rd quarter? it was 4pts lead then became 10pt lead cause someone couldnt inbound the ball and bring the ball up the court from full court pressure...pop shouldve sub the idiots involve on those 2 plays, leave kawhi out there to do something close the gap and continue pounding at that lead...but no, ego trip took over...kawhi didnt look like he was struggling or fatigue

how can u say there was no intensity from starters for 2nd half when it was 2 quick stupid turnovers, there was stretches of the game where spurs brick consecutive shots without a made basket and no answer on the other end, why didnt he go on a power trip time out?

once again the spurs backcourt has been exposed and will continue to be exposed cause they have no answer for a full court press bringing the ball up....
