Boston made 11/22 from deep the second half while Cleveland shot 2/17, then President Brad drew up three straight beautiful ATO plays and the Cs made all three shots. You know what they say — it’s a make or miss league.
This is the same Spurs we’ve always had. Every year they’re the 3rd-6th best team with a deep rounded roster that’s in the mix. They win win win right up until they lose. Some years the perfect superteam or healthy A+ team never comes so they win it all. It’s its own formula, a Patriots or baseball mentality in a sport where superstars dominate.
I don’t want to write or read about either of these teams anymore. Both of them stopped playing basketball long ago, and everyone has long since made up their mind about Russ. What he did was magnificent and we’ll never see it again. Now it’s over. The end.
Might almost be better that the Jazz haven’t gotten that close yet, so he doesn’t have the Durantula taste of almost winning. He sounds pretty happy in Utah, like a guy who wants to see what all this is building toward. Maybe he considers a Brad Stevens reunion but the others don’t seem too likely.
