レナードとオルドリッジ抜きで、最大28点差をひっくり返して9連勝。

ポップ

"It was a team effort. We had 33 assists. I thought David Lee was fantastic. I thought Manu was fantastic. Patty joined them, and I thought everybody else chipped in and did what they had to do with the 33 assists and getting up into them physically, defensively, after the first quarter. They took some pride in it. They wanted to win the game. I thought the whole team effort was fantastic. Patty, Manu and David were pretty special tonight."

前半と後半でディフェンスの熱量が違いすぎて。パーカー中心に足が全く動いていませんでしたね。オフェンスでも、パーカー/グリーン/シモンズ/リー/デッドモンというラインナップなら、もっとパーカーが積極的にハンドルしていかないと得点に繋がりませんし。案の定、攻守で熱量を欠いたパーカーの出場時間は16分止まりでした。脚の調子が悪いのかもしれませんが、あの2人がいない時こそチームを引っ張ってほしかったですね。

オフェンスで存在感を出し続けたのはリー、ミルズ、ジノビリでした。

リー

"That was a really bad start by us. Once we started getting back on defense and making them score in the half court, I think we turned up the pressure a little bit. I think the key was Manu had a really good second quarter and at least got us within striking distance by halftime. Then the rest, we were able to take care of."

"In a perfect world, you don't get down by 28 or 29 points, but we're always going to keep fighting as a team. We have great team chemistry. It's not going to be a situation of finger-pointing or anything like that. Instead everyone is rallying around each other."

 ミルズ

"I knew it was a big deficit. I didn't know it was 28. There was a moment there in the first half where there was no life, and we tried to find some sort of energy. This was a real character test I thought at halftime. We could have just laid down and gotten ready for a big one tomorrow night. We crawled back in it, and now I think it just goes to show the character that we have within the group, coming together and making sure we don't get embarrassed in our own building like that. In terms of camaraderie and how well we've come together off the court this season, I thought it was a good example of that in the second half." 

エースを欠いても、スターターの元気がなくても、試合中に切り替えて修正して逆転するという今日みたいな試合を見るとチームとしての自力を感じます。特に最近は逆転勝利が多いので、他の人がどう感じていたか分かりませんが、20点以上点差を広げられても、まだ全然いけるんじゃない?っていう気持ちにさせてくれるのが今のスパーズです。序盤からリードして勝つのが一番良いんですけどね...。

いよいよウォリアーズと1敗差となりましたが、ポップはそのことを意識せず、今まで通り主力やベテランを休ませつつスケジュールをこなしていくでしょう。無理なく追いつくことができればそれがベストです。1位シードよりも万全の状態でプレーオフを迎えるほうが大切ですからね。
