Spurs now switching pick and rolls, which is a very bad sign for them.
This is amazing. Spurs can’t defend pick and roll at all, no matter how they try.
Spurs never want Duncan to come up on pick and rolls, but he might need to take an extra step to contain Dallas’ ball-handlers.
Really out-of-character shot by Kawhi Leonard there. Rare to see the Spurs lose their poise, but it’s happening now.
Belinelli doesn’t need to sink that far off Carter. Surprised Pop has played him so much.
Remember when Jose Calderon was a liability in this series?
There’s the danger of going way under Monta ball screens. Kawhi sagged six feet off and Monta accelerated to the rim.
Common foul on McRoberts for that? What?
Why’d Mario Chalmers leave Kemba there?
That’s why Manu Ginobili is great. Nothing’s working and he took over a two-minute stretch to get the Spurs back in it.
Mavs were an aggressive trapping team on pick and rolls all season. Now, they’re hanging way back on pick and rolls. It’s surprising SA.
Meanwhile, San Antonio’s conservative strategy defending pick and roll hurts against Dallas. Lets Monta et al build up a head of steam.
These are unforced Spurs turnovers. Once you get San Antonio out of its normal rhythm, they get really out of sorts.
I think the Spurs will get it together in the second half, but Dallas is doing a lot of little things to mess up their rhythm.
DeJuan Blair’s floater will never not make me laugh.
Devin Harris is killing the Spurs. Big problem if Patty Mills can’t contain him.
Another weirdly bad closeout on Monta, this time by Ginobili. No need to run him off the line.
Jeff Ayers playing in a playoff game?
Guessing Pop isn’t too thrilled about Kawhi’s angle on that Monta closeout.
Dear Monta Ellis: the Spurs are giving you the open jump shot for a reason.
I won't tell an athlete whether to play through pain, but definitely worried for Big Al.
(Teaser in the last tweet doesn’t really reflect the article, but still funny).
Do the Nats play today?
That dog coming back
Thank God for all of His blessings and for allowing us to see another day !!
Raps-Nets was great. Amir Johnson was great. But Nets have to be encouraged that it took a huge DeRozan quarter for Toronto to barely win.
Brad Beal was asked if Giordano's thin crust pizza helped him get 26: "Chicago pizza is not better than St. Louis pizza. I’ll tell you that"
Wheels down glad to be back in DC.
Wiz nation!!! Come to the game on Friday and Sunday and help us win those games!
Great win for us!!! Nene was unstoppable again!!!! I have to play better ... Glad TBook got my back!
Great TEAM win!
Hustle and Flow!!!!! http://t.co/15spMi4w4v
Heading down to D.C. Thursday for the two home games. Never imagined the Wizards could close the Bulls out in them.
To everyone: Yes, I know Ariza did great on DJ. But I think the Bulls overreacted a bit, could have gone to DJ more anyway.
Really surprised Thibs didn’t give Augustin the ball much down the stretch. Was D.J. tired? And Butler was DEFINITELY tired.
The Wizards’ two best players are 23 and 20, not 19 and 20. Close enough, Chuck.
THANK YOU BRADLEY BEAL, I'M NAMING MY ALL KIDS AFTER YOU
I don’t know how they won that game. Holy crap
On the other hand, it set up Kirk Hinrich blowing the game! ALRIGHT
I generally hate people who complain about the refs, but are you fucking kidding me?
Phantom foul. Obviously.
Well, they ran Beal off that curl with Nene in the post. They love that play. Just missed it.
Blaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh bad feeling about this.
Bulls have been helping off the corner like crazy all night. Stunned they’ve done that. Wiz are making them pay.
Why are the Bulls giving the ball to Kirk Hinrich so much? (Thanks)
It’s huge that the Wizards can cross match with all three of their perimeter players.
Wizards close 4th to force ot with a 14-4 run
Lets play five more
If you’re going to do that, Webster should be in the game.
Nope. Not a great play call.
If it were up to me, I’d decoy a Beal curl on one side and have Wall cross over and drive.
Well, I guess the refereeing balanced out. Should have been a Bulls timeout.
You can thank all those pick and rolls all season for that Beal hesitation move. Wouldn’t have it without that experience.
