Sebastian Pruiti of Grantland analyzed the perfect execution of the San Antonio Spurs’ offense.
These in-depth looks at the Spurs playbook are always something that I always enjoy. The last set, specifically, is freaking awesome. Seriously, how are teams going to stop that set when there are so many other options to consider? If Eric Bledsoe protects the backdoor angle then the Spurs have a Manu Ginobili dribble hand-off set with Tim Duncan rolling towards the hoop, an adept pick-and-roll handler in Ginobili, Danny Green spotting up in the corner and Tony Parker on the perimeter just in case the play breaks up.
