RT @JMcDonald_SAEN: Every year, there would be a playoff game where Pop would say "soft" and "pathetic" and "effort" and "physicality." Then we'd go relay this to Duncan and Tim's eyes would roll out of his head. Feel like tonight might have been that night, if TD was still around. https://t.co/qKrj0MxJMt
This was my point in the column most people won’t read. Coaches love to say “they wanted it more and they played harder” after losses like this. But none of the evidence supports that today. Denver’s only edge was in the 3s its role players made and SA’s missed.
The league will look at it but we’re told there is no automatic suspension for such offenses. I’d expect it might be a fine but nothing more.
FWIW, each of those four guys had a better +\- today than Game 3 hero Derrick White.
