Getting to the free throw line, being aggressive on both ends of the hardwood, and finishing off the job at hand will all be vital parts to a San Antonio win tonight.
The Spurs did a fairly good job of getting to the charity stripe in Game Five, shooting 28 free throws, but they also must limit how often they foul the Mavericks players in the paint (Dallas took 33 shots from the free throw line in Game Five).
Being aggressive, and staying aggressive the entire game, will also be a key to the Spurs knocking off the pesky Mavs tonight in San Antonio.
In Game Five, there was little to no effort from the entire San Antonio team; and it’s a necessity for the Spurs to come out hot and ready to complete the job when the game tips off this evening.
Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich has done a damn good job getting his underdog team to this point; it’s now up to the team to finish this one off.
And if San Antonio plays as well as we’ve seen them play in prior matchups with the Mavs, we can all be celebrating a Spurs win tonight in Game Six…
