レナード復帰。いよいよウエスト1位到達。

ターンオーバーも多くオフェンスは大味でしたが、2ndユニットを中心にディフェンスはよく締まっていて見応えがありました。

ポップ

"Overall I was pleased with our defense. I thought they did a great job holding those guys under 100, given the fact we turned it over 20 times. It was a heck of an effort by the guys tonight."


2ndユニットはディフェンスが優秀な選手が揃っているわけではありませんが、全員がしっかり足を動かしてヘルプやローテーションをきっちり出来ていたのが印象的でしたね。フォーブス/ジノビリ/カイル/ベルタンス/ガソルの時間帯が特に素晴らしかったです。前回も書きましたが、フォーブスがディフェンスそこそこイケます。

前の試合と今日のをまとめてみました。フォーブスを見てると、サイズに恵まれなくてもディフェンス技術がなくても経験不足でも、とにかく必死に足動かせばなんとかなると思い知らされます。特にピック対応なんかを見てると。パーカーもこれくらい...無理かな。


レナード、欠場中のオルドリッジについて

"It’s going to increase a lot. We’re missing a rebounder and another scorer that causes a double-team. He helps me to get easy shots. We’ve got a ton of guys that can fill his place and know our offense. We’re already deep down in this season. We’ve just got to roll with it. We hope he gets better. We don’t want to rush him back [because] that’s something serious with his heart. We just want him to get better and feel comfortable with himself about stepping out here on the floor again."

リー

"It was great to have Kawhi back tonight, obviously leading the way. The rest of us filled in and did the best we could. My job when I came here was to be ready for any circumstance. I’ve played, started for years and years in the league; a couple hundred games in a row I think I started. Then I’ve come off the bench a bunch and found a way to be successful. My job is when my number is called, no matter what that role is, it’s to play hard and play smart."

 ポップ、リーについて

"Well, I’ve seen him play over time, and he’s definitely not a minimum player, for sure, and he’s proven that to a lot of people, hopefully. It’s just a matter of sometimes circumstances are more important or affect your life more than you, individually, and that happens to all of us. It’s called life, and he’s worked through it and come here and done a heck of a job."

 グリーン、インサイド陣について

"[Lee] and Dewayne [Dedmon] have been great. They have been key for us, especially with [Aldridge] being out and Pau coming off the bench. Those guys have done a great job on the boards and altering and blocking shots. We’re usually last in offensive rebounding, but I think they brought us up a notch or two. They’ve done a great job on the boards, getting there and getting us second opportunities. We always respected [Lee]. He had always played great against us. He was well-respected, used both hands. Injuries had plagued him, but he’s been fighting through the little bumps and bruises. He doesn’t want to sit out."

game

GSW 85 - 107 SAS  Box

f:id:sareim9:20170314163135j:plain


欠場多数。レナード(脳震盪)、オルドリッジ(不整脈)、パーカー(背中)、マレー(鼠径部)。デュラント(膝)、カリー トンプソン ドレイモンド イグダーラ(休養)。

ウォリアーズは完全に主力が抜けているので問題なく勝利。


ポップ

"It's a win we're going to accept and keep, but wasn't a fair fight. They're Golden State. Their top four or five players weren't there, if anybody didn't notice. We're supposed to win a basketball game like that."


特にシューター陣が積極的で尚且つ高確率で決めていたので見ていて清々しい試合でした。

ミルズ

"The aggressive mindset needs to be there no matter who's on the court and who's not. That's something that I've been trying to focus on a little bit more this end of the season going into the playoffs."

ミルズやベルタンスに続いて、フォーブスもシューターとしての積極性を見せ始めていました。また、フォーブスの欠点とも言われるディフェンスでも存在感を出していました。フォーブスはディフェンスが苦手というより、単純にSGとしてサイズ不足なのでそれがディフェンスで不利になっているだけだと思います。PGに付くならパーカーやミルズよりも安心して見てられるのではないでしょうか。あとは、オフェンスでPGとしてのスキルが上達すればNBAでも生き残れる可能性が高まるはずです。

フォーブスについて、ポップ

"He was solid. That was the best part of what he did. He made some shots, of course, and that's great. But he was pretty solid defensively. He knew what was going on."


レナード、オルドリッジ、パーカーが居ない中、ベンチメンバーたちが各々自分の役割をしっかり果たした試合でした。カイルやベルタンス、フォーブスなんかは少ないチャンスでしっかり結果を出したので、来シーズンに繋がると思ってこれからも辛抱強く頑張ってほしいですね。3人とも来シーズンはチャンスあると思うので(フォーブスは無保証ですが)。

連勝ストップ。もはやサンダー戦恒例のフィジカル負け。

ポップ

"In general, they were the most aggressive team. I thought their aggressiveness took us out of a lot of stuff; their double-teaming, their hedging, their trapping, whatever you want to call it. It was aggressive, and we didn't move the ball against that very well. So, we ended up with either turnovers or every time we'd get within seven, we'd turn it over or shoot a contested shot, or possibly give up a second-chance point for them being on the offensive board, and that was the downfall in the game."

"They beat us anyway. If Kawhi would have played in the fourth, if they would have continued to do what they were doing and we continued to do what we were doing, they would have won anyway. We never make excuses. We got our butts kicked."

オルドリッジ

"We didn't bring the toughness that we needed tonight. They beat us on loose balls. They beat us on offensive rebounds. We've just got to be better."

"A loss always makes you look in more. Definitely tries to respond better after a tough loss."

リー

"I don't think we got a good rhythm tonight. I think you could look at them as having the most depth inside of any team in the league, especially from the last time we played them having Kanter back in the lineup as well as adding Gibson. They did a good job on the boards, and they're especially tough in this building. For whatever reason, we didn't have our best night. We've got to look at that. If I had to say one thing, I don't think we moved the ball as well as we have. We played a lot of iso ball, which is great when shots are going in. I think we're at our best when everyone's involved and moving the ball. When you have a team as big and strong as they are, when you move the ball and everybody's cutting, I think they're less effective. Because they've got to scramble and move now versus when they can stay at home, and get in the paint, and now there's five guys around you. I think all of us were guilty of that tonight. It's something we've got to change next time we see them." 


パーカーとジノビリがいないので1stと2ndそれぞれが上手くオフェンスを作れず。チームアシストは15でした。頼みのレナードも上手くダブルチームされてボールを展開できず。マレーも無難にこなすことはできていますが、ジャンパーが得意ではないことと、ドライブしたときにペイント内での選択肢が少なく判断も甘いので、相手にとって脅威となる存在にはまだまだなっていません。

試合を通して、ディフェンスやリバウンドで相手の積極性のほうが上回っていましたが、こういった試合でこそデッドモンのようなセンターが活躍してほしいですね。昨年のプレーオフでの課題がまさにそれでしたし。高さや身体能力、運動量のあるデッドモンは、ディフェンスでサンダーのビッグマンたちに対抗できる重要人物であることは間違いありません。しかし、ポップはデッドモンを20分に満たない出場時間に抑えました。

シーズン終盤に向けて、デッドモンのオフェンス順応は大きな課題の1つだと思っています。スパーズのビッグマンの中で1番ディフェンスの良いデッドモンが、ガソル復帰後の8試合の平均出場時間が16.9分(ガソルは23.7分)となっています。つまりポップの考えでは、デッドモンのOffデメリットとDefメリット、ガソルのOffメリットとDefデメリットを考慮して、ガソルのDefデメリットのほうがまだ目を瞑れるということなのでしょう。ガソルにも失礼ですが、デッドモンのオフェンス評価はそれほど低いということです。前にも書きましたが、デッドモン次第でまだまだスターターのオフェンスは向上すると思うので、そこは伸びしろとして期待しています。

さて、次戦はウォリアーズ。

グリーン、1位シードについて

"Home court is great, but getting better is the most important thing for us. It's always been, as well as being healthy at the right time of the year. There's been times in the past where Pop's rested guys no matter what the seeding is. If we know we're in the playoffs, we're in the playoffs. OK, cool. We feel we have the guys, the capability, the potential, the roster, the staff to compete with anybody and beat anybody on the road or home. Want to be champions? You have to win on the road. So regardless, the seed doesn't matter. You still have to win. The 1 seed is not really a factor for us. We just want to be healthy and playing our best basketball and getting better. Tonight, I think we might have taken a step back."
