SPURS GAME DAY! GAME 16: SPURS VS. SUNS, 22-11-2021, 7;30PM (CT) 

Post#1 » by GREY 1769 » Mon Nov 22, 2021 8:31 pm

After a players-only meeting and some crucial rest and practice, we embark on a four-game home stand, first versus a hot west team on the second of a back-to-back. For us it's back to the fundamentals from which everything flows - communication and hustle on D, consistently playing together, and purposeful movement on O, and putting it all together for the whole game. Let's start the reset tonight.

WHERE: AT&T Center, San Antonio, TX

Suboptimal especially given the three days off. Hopefully he's at the tail end of recovery. We need him:

Thankfully he's starting again. I think someone made a mistake and wrote Jock instead, who is now in the conditioning phase of return from Covid protocols.

Well this is an unexpected twist. Size and defense with his crazy rm length. I like it. It's going to take a little while for our guys go get used to playing together, but I hope this works well:

I'm sure as this relates to Vassell is because they want to balance the bench scoring. I understand it.

Three minutes left in the 1ST Q and I finally find a working stream. The struggle continues... We're up that's all that counts.

lmao Keldon so not used to passing he dishes to Drew who has two defenders on him when Keldon had the open lane on the right side.

B.B.I.Q. It's ok to not be selfish but it's not ok to pass when it's the worse play at the moment...

1ST Q: SPURS 20

SUNS 24

We had a 7-point lead and gave it up with DUMB plays. Lonnie steps out of bounds, and then takes a difficult, unbalanced contested J and miss. I hate him operating with the ball in his hands. I know we're trying to grow guys' games, but he's had THREE years to come up with some new moves and here we are.

BBIQ is an issue for Lonnie and Keldon. Time and again.

Jakob and hit FTs is also an issue - we are TWO for EIGHT!

3s is an issue - 0-4.

No mystery. Just not doing best of what we can be.

Not liking DJ's energy. One and done and settling all for outside shots. The shots he's not making but continuing to **** take. TRY SOMETHING ELSE or GET OTHERS INVOLVED.

Energy is not that HARD PUSH I was hoping to see.

We have yet to make a 3 and it looks like we're afraid to take it.

We are giving ourselves good chances with our D but them **** MISSING BUNNIES on O.

DJ drives for once but you can tell he drives in a way to avoid contact and that was on his mind when he missed the bunny. Can't be thinking about two things at once.

We're a team afraid and there's no one stepping up. There's doing things by committee and doing it to a fault.

2ND Q: SPURS 44

SUNS 57

BBIQ and HEART. We're a shell shocked team afraid to take 3s because we're afraid to miss them.

And when we're so focused on not making mistakes of course it only makes us make more.

DJ of course takes the most shots - the guy who is supposed to be DISTRIBUTING THE BALL. And has made only two. He has as mane points as 2-2 Diop. Brilliant.

We need to incorporate Jakob more. He's 0-2 and neither of those numbers are ok.

OF COURSE Devin is leading us with 10 points on stellar 4-6 and 2-2 from 3 yet we're not making a more concerted effort to get him the ball. Keldon is at 5-% efficiency and for some reason he is also 3-6. The attempts numbers for both NEED TO GO UP.

Lonnie 1-3; Bryn 0-1. Christ.

Our pace is too slow 44FGAs to their 48 when they're on the second of a back-to-back, only 2-8 from 3 (both by Devin) and only **** 4-11FTs. Nine TOs.

Our 2ND Qs are the second worst (lowest scoring) and our worst is the 3RD Q in terms of getting outscored. So we have not responded coming out of the half.

I appreciate Zen Pop in teaching mode but we need to light a fire under their collective asses minus Devin and Keldon. Who is willing to step up? Devin led the discussion in the players-only meeting, and he's stepping up. Derrick is more assertive and taking a variety of shots and good on D. But we will need the whole team to step up. It just feels too tentative and we're not even doing what we've been doing well so we have to get our heads out of woe-is-me zone and **** play with some heart and pride.

DJ to Diop great pass and finish.

We have to find ways to not get stuck with the switch of Jakob on the perimeter. He's mobile but there's only so much he can do. On the flip side, their big is down low to clean up the glass versus our smaller players. THINK.
