"They did a great job, and our defense was pretty defective. I thought they drove it with purpose, found people, and we started the game really without an edge and getting beat in transition again, like we did in Game 1."

"For us, you know, our Bible begins with transition defense. If it's not there, we're just not ready to go. If you'd have seen the clips of our transition defense, you would have traded all the players and fired me by the end of the game. It was that bad. But they were intense and they were that focused and they were that professional. And we were not."

"They came out and they played like it was a big game for them. They pushed it at us more than they did the other game and caught us in transition. We have to communicate better and make sure we get to the shooters better. We got caught in the middle trying to find guys and not really talking tonight. You just have to try to control the ball more, control the drives to the basket, have weakside rotation. We have to rotate on the back side and find the shooters."

ガソル

"You have to fight your instincts and really understand, when you have an advantage or an opportunity, you can bring extra focus to fight against complacency, instincts and feelings you might have. You see what the Warriors and Cavaliers are doing in other series. They're playing with an edge. They're going out there every day and pretty much sweeping every team they're facing. It's something to keep an eye on. We want to be the same way. It's interesting how the mind works."

"It's what they do. That shouldn't take us by surprise. When you turn over the ball and take bad shots, they run at you and they take 3s. You've got to give them credit. That's what they do. I think we gave them a lot of opportunities to score those 3s. We were not as attentive and responsive as we were two days ago. They make you pay. They had more energy, they had more anger because of what happened the previous game. They were more ready to play this game."

"Game 5 is a Game 7. We had a great opportunity today to go back to San Antonio 3-1 and in a better situation. Now it's 2-2. Game 7. We've really got to be knowing that every possession is a game-winning possession. They are going to make 3s in three straight possessions here and there. We've got to create situations where those 3s are not that open, we guard the one-on-ones better, and a lot of things."


さて、それぞれの反省コメントを読んだところで。

トランジションディフェンス、ヘルプ及びローテーション、つまりディフェンス全部悪かったのは分かります。ただ、相手の出来からしても仕方ないなと思うような場面も多々ありましたけど。

個人的に引っ掛かったのはオフェンス。相手がスモールなのにこちらがビッグを貫いている意味を全く感じませんでした。オルドリッジやガソルがミスマッチで優位に立つことが多かったのにインサイドを攻めきれず。

そもそも通常のマッチアップである、オルドリッジとアンダーソンですらミスマッチだと思っています。しかし、シリーズ通してこのミスマッチを有効活用できてないように感じますし、何故いつも押し込まないで簡単にシュート打っちゃうのか疑問です。

スモールに対してビッグを貫くこと自体は反対しませんが、ビッグならビッグなりの攻め方をしてほしいなと。スリーの爆発が怖いチーム相手に、着実にインサイドで点を重ねるところを見たいです。

スモールで対抗するならそれでもいいですけどね。何にせよ、相手の出来が良くても地に足つけて簡単に離されないチームであってほしいなと思いました。
