A preview of Tuesday night’s Game 5 between the and .
The Golden State Warriors outlasted the San Antonio Spurs in overtime in Game 4 to even up the series at two games apiece. The Spurs had a perfect opportunity to execute in the fourth quarter and find their way to a 3-1 series lead by closing out the Warriors in Game 4. However, they couldn’t get shots to fall. was 1 of 5 in the fourth quarter and missed a big shot that plored his Liverpool squad to play with freedom in Wednesday’s crunch Champions League meeting with Atletico Madrid at Anfield. The Spaniards have a 1-0 lead after the first leg of the last-16 tie.And Klopp has said his players must use the threat ofcould have won the game after dropping to the ground with a behind-the-back move. Instead of closing out the fourth, the Warriors won the overtime period 13-3 to survive the first four games with a 2-2 split. They probably couldn’t have realistically asked for more here.
39.0. Even though the Spurs couldn’t execute down the stretch in Game 4, itsea.Wilder saw plenty of Mount in the Championship last season during the midfielder’s loan at Derby.He said, “No surprise at all. If you look through Derby’s season last year, he did fantastically well. They turned us over at their place, deserved’s the Warriors that are having big problems in the fourth quarters of this series. They’ve been held to an effective field goal percentage of 39.0 in the first four games, and need to find a way to keep their offensive magic going through all 48 minutes. Some of this coud be attributed to too many isolation plays in the final period for the Warriors, but really the Spurs are just sitting on their sets when they do run plays and forcing them into bad shots. The only thing the Warriors have really been good at in fourth quarters is getting to the free throw line and not turning the ball over. But they have to find and open shots in the fourth to put the pressure on the Spurs to execute.
Making the Warriors run plays in the fourth quarter. The Warriors have been running more isolation plays at the end of the game than they have in the first three quarters. Is that a bad thing? Yes and no. It’s a good thing because they’re getting decent separation on shots and it takes away the likelihood of a turnover when they re interested in Sassuolo winger Jeremie Boga.That’s according to his brother and agent, Daniel.He told Radio Punto Nuovo: “Anything’s possible in football, but he started the season with Sassuolo and he will finish it with them.“For me it’s not do this. However, it’s not utilizing the play sets and the talent that brought them to this point in the playoffs. Even running more pick-and-rolls right now could help cure these shooting woes in the fourth quarter of the first four games. Even though isn’t a threat to score from anywhere that isn’t at the rim, using him as the roll man sets up his passing ability to find shooters in either corner. That’s where Thompson and Curry should be spotting up to spread the floor. That way has the room to operate while the rest of the team is in position to make the defense play.
Youth vs. experience. We’re down to a best two out of three in this series with the young team having to win at least one game on the road. How do they respond? How do the Spurs try to use their savvy and expertise to expose the inexperience of the Warriors? We have two good coaches (yes, Mark Jackson is officially a good coach) who have done a fantastic job of getting their teams into the right mindset to execute and play good basketball. Gregg Popovich will have to get Ginobili and into positions to pick the Warriors’ defense apart. Jackson will have to find ways to get Curry and Thompson into good shots on the perimeter, where they shined all season. It should be a lot of fun.
9:30 p.m. ET start time. Curry has a sore ankle but will play.
