Then the light bulb goes off and I remember, at times like last night, they play perfect offensive basketball and it is a thing of beauty. Nobody is ever in more control than they are, nobody is ever in the perfect location to receive the kick out pass as they are and nobody is more deadly once they work it around and end up with a wide open look. They are as close to watching a clinic on offensive hoops as anyone could ever be.
OKC is too good at home. And Miami/Boston will surely take a game, but if anyone gave you the impression they could pull off 4-4-4-4...it is these San Antonio Spurs.
Watching this team make the extra pass to insure a wide open look nearly every possession is something that hasn't been seen in 25-30+ years. How many looks did OKC throw at them defensively trying to slow it down and the Spurs just kept doing the same thing with different players. Granted SA can't rely on Danny Green consistently knocking down wide open looks but if the bench continues to contribute the way they have the first 2 games, OKC's gonna have a hard time making this a series.
