So far, all of our predictions for the Conference Semifinals have turned out true and our statistics for May are looking more than good and profitable. We want to keep it that way and continue with our great analysis on the Spurs vs OKC pivotal Game 5.
San Antonio Spurs vs Oklahoma City Thunder
- This very important and highlighted Game 5 seems to be years away from what we’ve witnessed in Game 1 in AT&T Arena. Surprising or not, style of play may seem to have altered, but the tactics approached by the coaches remain the same. Billy Donovan still insists that Serge Ibaka or Steve Adams should be the only ones guarding LaMarcus Aldridge and that he should not be double teamed so as to leave too much space wide on the flanks for open 3 pointers. On the other hand of the floor, Gregg Popovich remains with the same ball flow mentality and despite his team slowing down in Oklahoma City, they are undeniably outstanding at drawing out plays.
- As I’ve already mentioned, the transition from AT&T Arena to Chesapeake Arena hasn’t proven great for the most prolific player on the Texan team. Aldridge managed to combine for 79 points in the two games played in San Antonio, with a remarkably 33/44 FG’s percent, a percent that was bound to drop very much in Oklahoma City, reaching only 13/39, making this a real question mark on how the Spurs should handle the ball. We all know LaMarcus and his fiery spirit and as he’s stated, he is going to come hot right out of the gate, impose himself and not allow anybody stop him. I’m personally expecting another high scoring affair, perhaps with both teams going over 100 and Aldridge will once again catch fire!
