But the truth is that the Spurs have been atrocious all season, and especially the 2 games against the Clippers. Now, do the Clippers deserve some credit for that? No, not really. When you:
-Miss wide open shots all game long
-Commit unforced turnovers
-Get out-rebounded because of silly mistakes (mostly wing players not screening)
you deserve the blame, not the other way around.
The Clippers... just aren't as good as the Spurs. There's no denying the quality of the shots they're getting is much higher than LA (and most other teams too). Any knowledgeable fan will tell you that.
But right now there's something really wrong with this team, maybe mentally, maybe it's the adjustment to a slower pace, that makes them play like garbage. The Spurs have just been really lucky to have such a good record so far.
LOL, so the only way to win is to make open shots?
I'm guessing the "open shots" that the Spurs were missing also had to do with the 47% that the Clippers shot to win the game?
Not to mention, the Clippers were 1-12 from 3, and still ended up shooting 47% total. Everyone has their excuses.. Glad to hear yours.
