Jordan made only 39.7 percent of his free throws this season, making him one of the league’s most frequent targets of the intentional “hack.” “Hopefully, we won’t have to use that tactic,” Spurs guard Danny Green said after Friday’s practice session. “Hopefully, we play good basketball and aren’t in a position we have to use it.” Jordan fully expects to spend lots of time shooting playoff foul shots. “It’s happened all season, and I feel like a lot of the games that they’ve done it we’ve won,” Jordan told reporters in Los Angeles. “I’m not really worried about it. When it does happen, which I know it will, I’ll just go to the line and shoot the basketball. It’s not something that I’m dreading, but I’m prepared for it. I’m ready.” San Antonio Express-News

The defending champs are starting from the bottom half of the Western Conference bracket, on the road, against the toughest possible opponent outside of top-seeded Golden State. They also come armed with a weapon they didn’t have at this time a year ago: A third Finals MVP, ripe with expectation. “We expect a lot from him,” Duncan said of Leonard. “His confidence is there, his decision making is there. He makes us better as a team when he plays the way he does.” San Antonio Express-News

"They're all different," James said. "But I think every last playoff series for me is a learning experience, especially in my younger days. But some of them was even in my later days, like my first year in Miami (against Dallas), those playoff series, I learned so much from that, all the way to the last one that I lost (against San Antonio), on how to improve my game. So it's either ways I can improve my game—which is the most important thing. If I don't play well in a series, I critique that whole series and I look what I was doing, what I could have done. And if there's something that I couldn't do well in that series, I work on it all summer. And I don't know, I just approach it that way. I take it very seriously. Like I say, I'm a totally different person in the playoffs." Bleacher Report
