What Looks Good
It doesn’t matter if you’re flashy if you can get the job done. Quietly, the San Antonio Spurs have put five games between them and the No. 3 Lakers and are a very dangerous team going into the playoffs.
Tim Duncan has apparently found the fountain of youth, Tony Parker is having a career season and they have a great mix of old and young talent.
What Needs to Change
The Spurs need to get center DeJuan Blair going if they want to establish themselves in the paint. Sure, they have one of the best power forwards off all time in Duncan, but other than him, they are quite thin in the frontcourt.
Blair is only averaging 9.7 points and 5.8 rebounds, but he’s shown he can easily score 20 points in a game. If they can get the ball to him in the post more often, he will make more shots, as he is shooting over 50 percent for the season.
