SPURS GAME DAY! GAME 42: SPURS VS. ROCKETS, 12-1-2022, 7:30PM (CT) 

Post#1 » by G R E Y » Wed Jan 12, 2022 7:47 pm

We are finally home and after a long, weary road trip we embark on the first home game of 2022 and first of 11 of the next 13 at home. And we may be getting some reinforcements back today as well, so if there was ever a time to solidify our play and make up ground, this is it. We face a team with a worse record, but we've been in this situation before recently and got burned by it. Making sure that we play the team not the record is primary and paramount, regardless of who is in the line-up. And to that, fundamentals of D-out, team-first, two-way play are ever central to our foundation. All as one, let's set the right tone at home.

WHERE: AT&T Center, San Antonio, TX

Update! This is a positive step forward. It must mean they have gotten the requisite negative tests and it's now a matter of conditioning to be declared ready:

Disappointing start in terms of energy and focus on the D end, to be honest...

AND WHY ARE WE LEAVING THEIR GOOD 3 SHOOTERS OPEN?

They're playing a simple game - either shoot the 3 of pass inside for their athletic bigs to finish ffs...

AND WHY ARE WE SETTLING FOR OUTSIDE SHOTS TOO EARLY IN THE CLOCK?

You can't catch up on one scoring possession. Patience!

Their 11-0 run is followed by our 8-0 and their timeout. Solid D strips and hustle to win 50/50 balls and better transition finishing.

1ST Q: SPURS 36

ROCKETS 39

WTF is this score lol!

We were actually down 12 at one point so to close it to within 3 is great.

Our D sucked too much at our arc.

Bryn is saving us. That's right.

Limit the TOs, get to the FT line better, PROTECT THE BALL, run back on transition D, don't settle for shots too early in the clock, PROTECT OUR ARC, make our shots. Repeat.

We JUST tied it up and then allowed a **** 7-0 run and forced Pop to call a timeout.

Our energy is muddy whereas the are taking advantage of their frenetic chaotic pace and 3s shooting.

We keep fouling them down low and not driving with enough verve the other way.

Just not clean, smart, cohesive basketball right now, after some really good play, and yes, on the back of Bryn's white hot 3s shooting.

They are shooting 61/54/83 efficiency!!! GET. DEFENSIVE. STOPS.

Stop chasing them, impose our game.

I get that we're getting blocked a lot, but we don't have to take 3s all the time. We can create some paint shots and elbow Js and whatnot.

We have to stop their frenetic pace.
