    Learn from the Spurs

    Today when Spurs were down about 15 in the late 2nd quarter, the Pop told the team to foul the lowsy free-throw shooter. They did it again when they led 13 in the fourth. Why Doc did not do it last night? San Antonio's success this year is a no surprise.

    They are playing better than everyone else in the playoffs this season.  They haven't lost a game yet.  It is going to difficult for anyone to beat them.  It should be an interesting Western conference finals, but I don't believe that anyone can beat them.

    Posted by bigegg[/QUOTE]Doc is a good mentor but an average strategist. Can't compare him to Popovich who is a master at analyzing game situations and devising strategies.

    True. When was the last time Spurs lost big lead?

    Doc has never played that foul game I don't think. To him it's admission of defeat in some way maybe?

    It has proven to be a game changing strategy however.

    It was definitely a good strategy for the Spurs which contributed to their win.

    Duncan and Durant.  Both dominating the west.  Makes me wonder what if Pitino and Ainge were to land both of these players.  We could have won multiple championships.

    True. These two players are great. They need a great coach to win multiple rings though. Doc is a good, maybe very good coach, but not a great coach.

    Spurs just closed out Clips.
    Spurs are consistently playing at a high level.
    Being bounced in the first round last year by the Griz must still be on their minds.
    Wish the C's could bring that same focus to each and every game, but you never know.  Basketball is a streaky game.
    Still, Spurs fans have got to be living in the moment now, while we Celtic fans
    are waiting and hoping.

    " They need a great coach to win multiple rings though. Doc is a good, maybe very good coach, but not a great coach."

    Bingo - I'd say all told Doc is a very good coach, whereas Pop is an all time great now. Therein lies a major piece of the OP's question.
