I don’t get too swayed from game to game. Look at patterns and trends.
The Parker injury is huge for San Antonio because it takes away a playmaker and scorer for them in what is already an offensively challenged team.
They can’t match firepower with Houston, which will hurt them when it comes down to those contests where the Rockets are raining three’s from all over the court.
Leonard is fool’s gold. Within the flow of San Antonio’s system, he can thrive, but he won’t carry them in a series like this because he’s not that type of player. He will have a hard enough time guarding Harden, much less carry the Spurs offensively.
I can see Houston closing this out in five games, unless Leonard wills San Antonio to another victory, but it ends in six.
