    This Popovich guy needs to be rolled. His team has been outscored by 35 points in the 3rd quarter after 2 games. Nice halftime adjustments bud !!!! He also has MOSES covering Chris Paul. Did that work the first game......NNNNNOOOOO. Did he change the matchup for the second game? NNNNNOOOOO. Man, this guy could take some coaching lessons from our boy FLIP... I hope the members of the Spurs Forum are FRYING this guy........

    It would be nothing short of a miracle if this current Spur team can beat the current Hornet team 4 of the next 5 games.

    I don`t see that happening.

    Losing this series doesn't make Pop a bad coach, and it's far from over.

    Pop made the adjustment. TP is on CP3, and Bowen is on Peja. So far it's working out OK. Peja is scoreless. Too early to tell though.

    Now if only we could teach Flip how to make an adjustment . . .

    At the risk of sounding like i'm talking to myself in this thread. Spurs win. Brilliantly coached game by Pop (and i'm not just saying this b/c he listened to me, although that is part of it :))

    Peja was negated by Bowen. Which took him off the floor alot, and effed up NO's spacing and didn't give CP3 much room to work with.

    CP3 went off, DW scored some, but without Peja the Hornets couldn't put enough on the board to win since they're not exactly a defensive juggernaut.

    Pop also put in a few different plays, one that was particularly effective that negated the double team on Duncan.

    You can see why the Spurs are so effective in the PO's besides having Duncan. He's a really good coach.

    CP3 and TP both put on a dazzling displays tonight. I love CB, but if either one of them was our starting PG we would be unstoppable.

    CP didn't win the MVP, but if they get by the Spurs his team may be the one to stop the LA Kobes..

    And how many steps does Genobli have to take to get called for traveling?

    Bowen on Peja may have been the key as he was held to single digits for the first time this series.

    Good entertaining game compared to the ugliness of the Cavs-Celtics.

    No one really knows for sure, but I'm guessing it's almost as many as Lebron. :)

    Almost as many as Rip takes when he catches the ball outside?

    That was a good game.

    Those 3-4 straight possessions toward the end with Paul and Parker exchanging hoops were pretty entertaining.

    It's great to be able to score a bunch of points but if you can't play defense; you have to. They pretty much canceled each other out.

    On another note; check out the boxscores for Manu and TP. NNNNIIIIIICCCCEE.

    So I guess this is what the first four games of the '05 finals were like for people who weren't fans of either SA or Detroit. Blowouts in every game make for a pretty uninteresting series, although I expect things will be tight in Game 5.

    I am kind of in that crowd. It is interesting how huge the disparity is between home and road this year when the teams are so close talent wise.
