Well there you go.
Well there you go.
I gotta tell ya, this is what it’s all about:
That’s James Harden sticking a dagger 3 into the heart of SAN 5:17 to go, causing their lead to go up 100-88. Clearly the turning point in the game.
What I remember most about this game is this:
I’m afraid I only caught the very early and the very latter parts of this game because.. well it’s Saturday and I wanted us to wake up to a corned beef with eggs breakfast and so I was busy cooking so sue me.
Well there you go. Coach Popovich conceded this game sometime late 3rd and OKC finally gets a W while breaking the Spurs 20 win streak. And the only relevant graphic I can think of to reflect this game are the stats, which don’t really do the job because again, the Spurs gave it up by resting his starters in the 4th, so any numbers you see here don’t really mean anything.
What I take away from this game is two things. FIRST, OKC has finally determined a system to stop Tony Parker, adopting an interesting switching defense that negates picks and rolls.
Sometimes I wish I was one of those powerful bloggers / sports journalists in the US, because I would seriously call out LeBron James. I would ask things like, 2.9 seconds left with the game tied, ball in your hand against a smaller defender (Rondo). Why do you take a step back jumper from 17ft.?
Ok I decided not to reuse this pic in the original post I wrote this morning, and instead go with Master Shifu.
Him being my representative of the Spurs, whilst OKC represented of course by the tiger, whoever he is.
The way I see it, this guy is SAN.
It took me a long while to write this because I was looking for Rondo’s stat, particularly scoring per quarter for this game. Sadly I couldn’t find any even after a thorough search of the usual online haunts, so I’ll just resort to the usual clickbait and post a pic of Rondo with that famous ‘dagger’ three, that help put them out of reach from PHI 68 – 76.
Sucks to be a PHI fan right now huh.
