So Pop, let’s jump right to the questions. Manu’s been having a tough time in the playoffs so far. He’s shooting 34% from the field, and 18.75% from the three point line. Do you think Manu is able to get things going in the next three games?
Err…Why do you say that Pop?
Right. Well then.
Pop, how do you feel about your team so far? Obviously, you dropped Game 4 and that’s gotta be disappointing, but are you feeling good, maybe even happy, about going into Game 5 tied up at 2-2 against this Miami Heat team?
(Glaring while writing email.)
Happy? Nobody’s happy. 2-2 is simply not good enough.
Tim Duncan and Tony Parker have played 128 and 131 minutes so far in this series, respectfully. Do you think by Game 6 or Game 7 the minutes they’ve been logging will take a toll on them?
Tim and Tony can’t play 48 minutes.
So their minutes are going to have any impact?
(Bored face. Yawn.)
Are we done yet? Why isn’t this over?
Of course the number of minutes they play is going to impact them!
But significantly? No.
Tim and Tony love (and are going) to play regardless of how many minutes they have played.
Pop, thanks for the time and the emails. What’s your main strategy for Game 5?
