Suns Spurs Analysis thru 2

Filed under: Uncategorized — wwinston @ 7:35 pm

Still have 350 exams to grade, but here is the essence of Spurs Suns series so far. As we predicted, Dudley and Frye have been the keys.

  • With Nash in with Frye and or Dudley Suns are +32 points in 52 minutes, playing 32 points (after adjusting for opponent ability) better than average. In 37 of those minutes George Hill waso n court and Spurs were down 31 points.
  • Rest of  time Suns are -15 points playing 11 points worse than average.

For Spurs, George Hill has hurt them.

  • Hill in 64 minutes Spurs are -34 points, playing 15 points worse than average.
  • Hill out 32 minutes Spurs are +17 points playing 36 points better thn average.

So what to do? I have to grade some more, but either figure out what Hill is doing wrong, play him less or surely play him less when Dudleyand/or Frye are in hitting those 3′s!


  1. So interesting that Hill and McDeyss were so instrumental in defeating the Mavs yet they seem to be a hindrance in the Suns series.

  2. Okay now I’m really starting to feel that the lack of sense for the Mavs (bad lineups, lack of a #2 go-to-guy) really allowed the Spurs to exploit with fresh young legs. Now that the Spurs are facing a team that knows what it is and how to use their players correctly, the young guys are having trouble. The only way I think Spurs can salvage a win in this series is Duncan has to neutralize Amare and Parker needs to keep abusing Nash.
