 The Spurs cant ignore that the Youth Nuggets need to break the Popovich front in the playoffs.


I. Review of Routine Matches

The two teams have met four times this season and won two games each. In the first game, Jamal Murray scored 31 points to win the Spurs by a narrow margin of 3 points, and then the Spurs won 1 point to win back to a city. The third game ended with a 28-point victory for the Nuggets, but in the fourth game, the Spurs scored 57 points to help the Spurs win 8 points. The two sides won and lost 4 times to each other. In the positive confrontation, they were equal.

II. Strength Contrast

Although there is a huge difference in ranking between the two teams, there are only six wins in the regular season between the two teams. In the vicious west, there must be a dozen on both sides. The Nuggets survived this seasons dramatic improvement in defense: loss per game ranked sixth in the league, while average score was only 20th, but offensive efficiency ranked sixth in the league, because they were the 4th slowest team in the league, and after they were in position, the ball was handed over to high-ranking center Jorge Kirch, Nuggetsnumber one tactical choice, and precisely because of that. For this reason, the Nuggetsfront rebounds and assists rank second in the league, with seven assists per team more than two times, and the Nuggets also have a team passing system that everyone can pass and a single-core team passing system.

This years Spurs, also less than the past top defensive team style, their average score loss can only rank in the leagues 12th, defensive efficiency can only rank in the leagues 19th. It is true that their offensive efficiency ranks seventh in the league, but the Spurs still rank first in the league in terms of control errors and fouls, and the number of two-point shots is second in the league. However, their three-point shots are the last 25.3 in the league, which makes 39.2% of the leagues first three-point shooting rate useless. On the one hand, Popovich does not like the current three-point era. There are not many three-point games in his tactics. On the other hand, the two core players Aldridge and Drogzen are used to shooting from mid-distance, which makes this years Spurs so incompatible with other teams in the league that they are likely to become their dead end.

3. Viewpoints of Series Competition

1. Can Yorkick Keep High Light

The regular season Yorkick is impeccable. Besides the magnificent data of 20.8 points, 10.8 rebounds and 7.3 assists, he plays an important tactical role in the Nuggets. 27.4% of the ball power share is already a standard of core point guard, while Yorkick plays both the role of organizational guard and ball-holding center in this team. Compared with last year, he has further improved in all aspects, besides the data. Leadership, the Nuggets can play so orderly, an important factor is that Yorkicks old status has been established, and his personality can bring all teammates together, that is to say, the Nuggets can be said to be the most harmonious team in the dressing room atmosphere of the entire Western playoffs team, in this case, despite the first time in Yorkicks career played. In the playoffs, its obviously unlikely that there will be a big dive. Although the Spurs have only 16.8 points, 8.5 rebounds and 8.5 assists this season, the 70%+50% shooting percentage reflects his restraint on the Spurslineup.

2. When can Shuangde be compatible?

The Spurs season is divided into two main stages: in the first half of the season, the Spurs let Drogzen play Leonards offensive role, and the results exceeded expectations: without the main control, Drogzens offensive organization grasped, carrying the Spurs forward, while Aldridge was a little uncomfortable. But in the middle of the season, after the emergence of Derek White, Aldridge continued to shine, not only carrying the Spurs offensive responsibility, but also leading the team to win key battles repeatedly. But Drogzen, who lost the ball right, was somewhat oblivious, even in some cases totally unaware of how to play ball-free and auxiliary roles. Drozan, who joined the team in the first year, is the least like the Spurs. They do need to work together, but as the playoffs approach, they still occupy the high position of two points at the same time, which means that the Spurs are likely to continue playing Aldridges star singles passively in the playoffs, which, as you know, is clearly the least appreciated by Popovich. Fa, and 34-year-old Aldridge cant always be brave, and Drozan is still a lot worse than Leonard.

3. The fighting wisdom and bravery of the two great commanders

In the fourth season of the Nuggets, Mike Malone finally stepped into the ranks of famous coaches. Compared with the surprise performance of 54 wins of the Nuggets this season, it should be seen that Malone led the Nuggets from 33 wins to 40 wins, to 46 wins, and to 54 wins this year, the process of continuous improvement. The Nuggetsyoung nuclei, Yorkick, Murray and Harris, have all grown up under his leadership. However, Malone has not led the team in the playoffs for six years, and this year will be a new test for him. For Popovich, the veteran, who has competed for the greatest coach in history, does not need more honors and achievements to prove himself. However, even though he is old enough to retire, he still wants to prove that he can adapt to the league and change it at any time. The stubborn old man lost two finals in the summer, MVP Leonard and Parker, and now he wants to go further on his own, even if he wants to retire. The two coaches, young and old, will strive for the same thing in different situations: survive the first round and go further. Source: Netease Sports Author: Editor-in-Charge: Ouyang Shun_NS4899
