SAS 106 - 100 HOU  Box

 

ようやくスタメン、ロスター全員揃いました。5人揃うとやっぱり頼もしく見えますね。

 

パーカーとグリーンが戻ったことでオフェンスの幅が広がります。パーカーがリーグ有数のオフェンシブビッグマン2人を使いこなし、ウイングからはスコアラーとして成長したレナード、そしてボールが回って行き着く先にはグリーン。オフェンスに関してはこれ以上ない布陣じゃないでしょうか。今日は初陣ながら良い内容のオフェンスも多く見られました。

 

パーカーについて、レナードは、

"He's a great point guard, very smart, knows where guys' spots are on the floor, and he's been here before. He knows what (Gregg Popovich) expects, and if one of us gets out of line or if we're doing well, he tells us. He just makes us better."

ポップは、

“He gets us organized. He hasn’t been with us much so far this season. The last stretch, he played 10- or 10-and-a-half minutes in a row. It’s just a stability factor on the perimeter. That was a big help.”

 ジノビリは、

“He knows exactly what’s going on. Tony is our starting point guard, and he has owned the team for many years. We need him out there.”

 

スタメン唯一の新加入であるガソルも"らしい"働きを見せてくれています。ハイポストから、オルドリッジとのハイローやレナードのバックドアへと上手くボールを供給。人もボールもよく動かしてベストなショットを見つけるスパーズバスケには適任のポイントセンターですね。

 

今日のスパーズについてレナードは、

"This is how the Spurs have been playing (for years). We make hard cuts, we move the ball, we try to get the best look, the open shot."

オルドリッジは、

"We're starting to build chemistry for the future, for late in the season. I thought tonight was a good step in the right direction."

ジノビリは、

"We were not great after 4-0. We are not that terrible now. We've just got to keep building."

ガソルは、

“We definitely played better today than we did a few days ago. We’re making progress, and that’s what it’s about.”

選手たちも今日の試合には好感触だったようです。

 

一方ディフェンス。先日の試合ではハーデン対策としてスモールラインナップにする時間が多かったのですが、今日はその時間を一切設けず。基本的なスイッチやカバーディフェンスで対応しましたが、先日より連携ミスも少なくグリーン・ミルズ・シモンズもハーデンに対して粘り強くマークできていました。あとはリバウンドですかね、特にガソルの。

 

最後相手のスリーが爆発してましたけど、スタメン5人は慌てず冷静に勝ちきりました。さすがベテラン&リング保持者たちといったところでしょうか。やっとスタメンが揃ったというのもありますけど、スパーズらしいチームオフェンスも見られて開幕戦10試合で個人的に1番のナイスゲームでした。

ポポビッチ

“They scored 100 points. We probably made some mistakes somewhere in there. You just keep working. Everybody keeps working. It doesn’t matter if you won or lost. There’s many, many things teams need to improve. But we competed well ... really well. We played a lot of guys, and they’re starting to figure each other out. That’s what we need. We have to build our culture back a little bit, so people know what’s going on out there on the court.”

レナード

“This is our first time having our full roster able to play, and being that it was on a back-to-back, I think we did a pretty good job tonight. In the fourth quarter we gave up 30 points. So we’ve still got some stuff to work on to keep that momentum going throughout the game. But overall I think we did pretty good.”

ガソル

 “We’ve been playing much better on the road than we have at home. Hopefully we can come out with the same intensity and aggressiveness and continue to make progress. I think it’s important [to finally have the full team]. We had a little better balance. We’re moving the ball better. The first seven or eight games of the season, it was a lot of one-on-one, a lot of isolation. We were 19th or 20th in the league in assists. We’ve picked that up the last couple of games and it’s paid off. We have a lot of guys that can score, put the ball in the hole and make plays. Ball movement will be a huge point for us going forward.”
