2-0リード。後半相手のディフェンスに苦しめられましたが、スパーズのディフェンスも1試合通して集中できていたので点差を守りきりました。

ポップ

"Our offense went in the toilet because of (the Grizzlies’) great defense. And we were in trouble. We had more turnovers than assists tonight because of that period where they played great (defense) and we were in mud. The ball stopped moving and it was one-on-one, dribble, dribble, dribble, that kind of thing. (The Grizzlies) took advantage of it and got back in the game, did a great job. But, overall, they made a great run and we did a good job withstanding their run and coming back with good defense in the fourth."

"They came out in the third quarter and bullied us and punked us and played great defense that got us on our heels a bit – cracking us, real physical with us; hitting us on cuts and screens and all of that. That’s the way they like to play, and we always know that it’s going to come. We got hit on the chin tonight but it’s going to be even more aggressive and physical play in their building. So, we’ve got to find ways to counter that."

レナードについて、ミルズ

"He's kind of taken note of how teams are playing him defensively, and how to get to the line that way. Then the defense has got to make up their mind on how to play him. If they play not to foul, then it opens up lanes for him."

"It's not that big of a skill, but it makes a huge difference. James Harden is great at it. Kevin Durant is great at it. Kawhi is getting great at it too."

オルドリッジ

"He's playing at the highest level. He's getting to the line, making plays, making big shots. He's playing great."

"Figured out how to catch guys with their hand in the air and plant them the wrong way, kind of like James Harden does."

 
レナードの活躍は平常運転ですが、プレーオフに入ってパーカーの状態が特別良いですね。ショットもよく決まるし、ディフェンスもレギュラーシーズンの3割増くらいで足が動いてます。

あとはカイルがシーズン終盤から攻守で素晴らしいパフォーマンスを見せてくれています。レナードの休憩時間稼ぎと言うには失礼なくらいに。ジノビリも波が大きいので、この先カイルがジノビリのプレータイムを少し奪うこともあるのかな?とも感じさせてくれます。

グリズリーズのディフェンスは素晴らしいです。しかし、安易なシュートに逃げず、今日のレナードのようにリングに向かう姿勢を保ち続ければ崩せると思うので、敵地でも積極性を忘れず攻めてもらいたいです。
