The Spurs blog 48 Minutes of Hell has a typically thoughtful preview of tonight’s game that is really a comparison between the C’s and the Spurs. I’ll tease you with this, but head over and spend a couple of minutes reading the whole thing:
If these two teams were to meet in the Finals (we can dream), it would be like two old friends finding one another in college after spending high school six states apart. Both teams will grow too much between now and the end of the season for us to place too heavy an emphasis on this game. This is middle school cafeteria conversation. Puberty and girls and all kinds of growing up lie ahead.
The common denominator Tim sees between Boston and S.A.? Defense.
