But Spurs center Pau Gasol feels Anderson’s confidence appears shaken. He saw Aldridge speak with Anderson during Game 2 and offered a bit more advice to assist the 24-year-old forward in turning things around. “Don’t second guess yourself,” said Gasol. “Don’t hesitate. Try to contribute and get yourself going. Even if a shot or two doesn’t go down, don’t let that affect you. Get ready for the next play.”
And to make matters even worse, Leonard didn’t make the trip to the Bay Area with the Spurs, killing any potential for moral support in a challenging playoff series against the NBA power Warriors. “Kawhi is rehabbing at his own pace with his own people,” Spurs center Pau Gasol told The Undefeated. “He hasn’t been around us. I’m sure he is trying to get healthy. I’m sure he is trying to get back. But that’s all I know. Really, as a teammate, as a player, that is all I know.”
Storyline: Kawhi Leonard Injury
But it’s starting to become more obvious that figuring out ways to stop the Cavs’ offense isn’t just a Toronto problem, especially when wily veteran Jose Calderon is spearheading the attack. “His ability to make shots and be very cerebral with our packages, it allows him to be successful,” LeBron James said of Calderon. “I think he’s just a smart, smart basketball player. I mean, I’ve played against the Spain National Team for a long time and there’s not one player on that team that’s not, pretty much, smart and knows how to play. You look at the Gasol twins. You look at Ricky Rubio. And Rodriguez and Jose and all those guys, they were just really smart and they were never going to beat themselves. So for us to have him has just been an extra security blanket for us.”
