2016 Playoffs: Spurs 94 - Grizzlies 68 / by Rollie Agado

So the San Antonio Spurs put on an impressive win, while also angering me in the processes.  This is the kinda game that upsets casual fans of basketball who just tune into the Playoffs.

  • No starter for the Spurs played more than 27 minutes.  
  • The leading scorer for the Spurs had 16 points and came off the bench.
  • Spurs dropped 94 points on 66 shots.

If you followed the Spurs all season, this game kinda felt like the game they play when they're out on extended road trips where they're playing their playing their 3rd game in 5 nights.

As a Bulls fan...  I can't help but look at the Spurs and be filled with Jealousy.  They continue to masterfully manage player minutes and they will likely play an OKC team that is on the verge of imploding.

The Spurs haven't been consistently tested by an opposing team and they likely won't until they see Warriors in the Western Conference Finals...   but I think there's something to be said about this team not knowing what to do when they have to get into clutch-time-basketball.

Perhaps a referendum will be needed on the Spurs possibly having the most rested team to not advance to the NBA Finals.
