“I thought a lot during that [Finals] series about my experience as a broadcaster covering Oklahoma City and the Spurs in 2014,” Kerr says. “We play a lot like the Spurs did. And Oklahoma City was able to bottle them up because the Spurs were starting two bigs with Tim Duncan and Tiago Splitter. When the Spurs changed things in the series, they won. They went small. It opened up the floor. That series reminded me a lot of our series because we just couldn’t get the spacing we normally get. It was Nick U’Ren’s suggestion to start Andre. We had been considering starting David. The more we thought about it as a staff, we liked the idea of Andre.”
