I was reading an article on Yahoo! sports about how the Thunder may have to make things ugly against the San Antonio Spurs. They don’t have to. Defend Tim Duncan with what you got with Serge Ibaka, Kendrick Perkins, Nazr Mohammed, and Nick Collison. Then make Duncan, Manu Ginobli, and Tony Parker willing passers and make Gary Neal, Stephen Jackson, Kawhi Leonard, Danny Green, and Tiago Splitter scorers. No matter what you will do Duncan will get his points. Make Duncan earn them. You’ve got six fouls apiece with Ibaka, Perkins, Mohammed, and Collison to use up. Duncan is the greatest big man of his era ever to use the backboard and has the utilities and tools at his advantage to win in the game of basketball.
