Speights is superfluous for Memphis' needs. They need D.Arthur. His defense and quickness is so important alongside plodders like Z-Bo and M.Gasol. Gives Memphis such a different weapon.

They should try and dump Speights to get below the luxury tax threshold. His contract is right around the figure they are over the LTT.

I don't understand why Jackson isn't on the floor for San Antonio. I think he should be on the court whenever San Antonio need a big shot in a situation like this.

I don't trust Danny Green to make a shot here if it comes down to him taking the shot.

I don't know why Manu took that heaved three falling out of bounds while double teamed about five feet behind the three point line off the catch while off balance. Ridiculous attempt.

The Spurs had over three seconds on the clock. More than enough time for Manu to take a dribble and either look for a better shot or make a pass to an open teammate. Terrible decision by Manu.

I think this is LA's best lineup with Dwight and Pau out.

PG - Nash
SG - Kobe
SF - Clark
PF - Jamison
C  - Artest

I like how Scotty Brooks has responded by going small with Durant at power forward alongside Thabo and Kevin Martin on the wings with Westrbook at the point. Collison in there now for Perkins. Better. Perfect.

Very good coaching by both guys. Brooks just has more weapons at his disposal.

Brooks took too much offense on the floor by putting a second big man out there and removing Durant + Westbrook at the same time.

Too much pressure on Kevin Martin. Not enough scoring elsewhere.

Lakers lineup has far too much firepower for this Thunder lineup to handle them.

Lakers switching too easily on that Durant pick and roll with Clark (Durant) and Jamison (big).

Cannot afford to let Jamison pretend to play defense on Durant. Gotta hustle back to your man there and let Jamison recover to his big man.

I like Nick Collison. Plays hard all the time. Rebounds and knows how to pass.

Would love to him on our team.
