Game On: Spurs @ Hornets

By:
Published: January 22, 2011

Matchup: Spurs (37-6) @ Hornets(28-16)

Off Efficiency: Spurs 109.4 (1st), Hornets 102.9 (18th)
Def Efficiency: Spurs 101.1 (7th), Hornets 98.8 (3rd)

Pace: Spurs 95.4 (13th), Hornets 91.2 (30th)

After the Hornets took the opening game in this division rivalry, the series has gone downhill for New Orleans. In the last two games, the recaps used the words “demolish” and “crushed” to refer to the how the Spurs attained their victories. To be fair, that’s how most Spurs games have gone this year. They have both the best record in the league and the largest margin of victory.

One way they’ve done it is with superior bench play. As I noted last week, the Spurs had 13 players with a PER over 12.0 on the year compared to only three Hornets who were at the time playing at that level. Things have changed in that regard, as the Hornets now have Marcus Thornton sitting at a PER of exactly 13. He’s really come alive recently, and is the potential spark to a second unit that is going to need all the help they can get.

If the Hornets are going to take this one down, they are going to need someone on the bench to have a strong night, and Marcus seems to be the ideal candidate.

Pause

Let’s take a quick look at the home-road split for Marcus Thornton:

Want to know why? It’s people like Thornton’s Thunder, Loud Mike, Hornets Hype, and the rest of you awesome fans who give Marcus a round of applause when he comes in and checks out. Players standing out there on the floor can hear you, and even though they might not acknowledge it while they’re on the court, it obviously has an impact on their mentality, which then affects their performance.

Resume

Monty Williams needs to be especially mindful about his substitutions so not to allow one of those 10-0 runs that seem to pop up every so often when the bench takes the floor. Something like that can turn a close game into a stinker in a hurry, and there’s nobody better at executing right now than San Antonio.

The Hornets run the pick and roll as their primary offense, and even though the opposition knows it’s coming, there really isn’t much they can do about it other than try to limit inside scoring and instead just let guys take jumpers. It’s not a bad strategy, as the Hornets are merely average when their possessions end in a spot up jumper. It’s when the possessions end in layups or dunks that the pick and roll is working most effectively. If the Spurs can limit those easy points, the Hornets are going to be in for a long night on offense. I’m sure Popovic will apply extra defensive focus on cutters, and some throw some traps, zones and switches at Paul in an effort to control him. As usual, the game’s outcome will rest on how CP3 handles it.

The Spurs should and will use Tony Parker to attack Chris Paul on the pick and roll. It’s physically grueling to fight through and around screens all night, and one of the most effective ways to limit Paul is by making him focus on defense. The problem? As you know he’s one of the best defenders in the league in most aspects, but against the pick and roll he’s really taken a step forward this year.

In the past he’s been below league average at defending it, but not anymore. He’s allowing the pick and roll ball handler to score only .83 points per possession this year, good for 82nd in the league. For reference, on offense he’s averaging .98 points per possession this year as the pick and roll ball handler, 8th in the league (Thanks Synergy Sports).

The Hornets should use one of their other guards to chase around Tony, and instead let Paul play free safety to some extent, allowing him to focus on getting steals and causing havoc for the league leading Spurs offense. Jarrett Jack and Marco Belinelli are both adequate defending the ball handler on the pick and roll, and should be utilized early and often.

I’ll take the Hornets in this one, but it’s going to be a nail biter. Not every game can end like the butt-whooping laid down on Atlanta last night. Also, I’ll be on ESPN’s Daily Dime Chat during the game so come on by and say hello.

    I’ve heard George Hill is OUT for tonight. If so that’s huge because the Parker – Hill – Ginobili lineup has killed us in the past.

    @Joe – Jack is above 12 in PER now too.

    If I’m the Spurs, I give Willie a couple freebies early so I don’t see Marcus tonight.

    • Joe Gerrity

      January 22, 2011 at 4:32 pm

      With the Hornets he’s only an 11.8! Overall though, yes, he is also above 12.

    Also the Spurs are on pace for 70 wins. That’s insane. They are good.

    • Monty'sDoghouse

      January 22, 2011 at 3:40 pm

      I just want to say, we aren’t the only ones who get shafted by the media. If it were Boston, LA, Miami, or Orlando, they would have a “Race to 70” countdown all over the place.

      Spurs have a really impressive record. Odds are, though, that everything is about to change.

      It’s . . . .RODEO time! That’s right. Every year the rodeo chases the Spurs out of town for a couple of weeks, which forces them to play on the road(e-o). Get along, little doggies, indeed.

      So if you’re mesmerized by their gaudy record, just consider that 4 of their 6 losses have come on the road, even though they’ve played 9 more games at home.

      So this is where the road/ home game disparity begins to return to equilibrium. Tonight, they begin to come back to the pack.

      I think they moreso factored our pace, which is due to our offense. Still, we know our team’s D is better than a B-.

    • Hornet

      January 22, 2011 at 3:48 pm

      I saw this. The bias against us is insane. Apparently it’s a knock on our defense that Ariza and Paul are good at anticipating passes.

      New York got a B overall for putting up 22-20 and we got a B- for putting up 28 – 16 with the by far tougher schedule. Monty only getting a B is absolutely insane as well. The dude deserves an A. A rookie head coach getting basically everyone to buy into a system, and getting a brand new team with all this hoopla playing as well as they are, and only getting a B? Fuck that.

      • Ron

        New York got a B overall for putting up 22-20 and we got a B- for putting up 28 – 16 with the by far tougher schedule.

        Thank God I’m not the only one who’s more than enraged by this coastal bias and stupidity.

    • Hornet

      January 22, 2011 at 3:49 pm

      It doesn’t matter about or pace though. Our defensive efficiency has been top 5 all year and is now top 3 after the Atlanta game.

    • Mark

      January 22, 2011 at 3:50 pm

      And Spurs should have an A+, not just an A (37-6 speaks for itself). So these grading systems are inconsistent.

    • NolaHog

      January 22, 2011 at 3:54 pm

      I’m starting to get tired of hearing national media talk about the attendance stuff. We’re clearly going to make the benchmark. I always make it a point to look at the attendance number for our road games, and I don’t see a lot of other mid-small market places blowing us out.

      • Monty'sDoghouse

        January 22, 2011 at 4:13 pm

        Atlanta had less than 15000 people last night and CP3 was in town. That didn’t make news even though their fan-base is about 5-6x the size of ours.

      • Hornet

        January 22, 2011 at 4:43 pm

        There’s no way that 15k actually showed up. That was like 12k with about 100 people that actually cared. I could hear CP and Monty calling plays at times because it was so quiet.

    • sportnlife

      January 22, 2011 at 6:18 pm

      Just watched the NBA-TV Mid-Season Report Card. Same nonsense. Handing out rewards for coaching, MVP, Most Improved. . . . not a single mention of the Hornets in any category. You could make a really good conspiracy theory out of this, when you combine it with the virtual media shutout of any but bad news about the team. But I think the media is actually too lazy to actively plot and execute a vendetta. Too stupid. Also.

      Let’s face it. A lot of us have been recently very down on the team’s prospects and have been hoping for changes, additions, better production. But the Bulls are given way too much credit for surviving injuries, the Thunder for having the most Lottery Picks that actually pan out, the Celtics for having the most high-mileage one-year-rentals, the Lakers for their “length,” and the Nuggets for enduring MeloDrama. Meanwhile, the Hornets have over achieved their talent-level, have two of the longest winning streaks of the season, are about to jump into second place in the toughest division in the tougher conference, and all the media wants to know is how many people were in the seats. And who paid for the seats.

      Here’s hoping the Hornets are watching too, and take it out on the Spurs.

    Hornets need to play very very well to beat these guys. Don’t even let the refs decide this ****.

  84. QueenBee

    January 22, 2011 at 8:17 pm

    January 22, 2011 at 8:28 pm

    I just don’t want my heart to be broken when this game is over. Please God.

    January 22, 2011 at 8:30 pm

    Why does Ariza always miss the 2nd free throw? That is so dumb. LOL!!

    Manu was trying to get Marco with that hand in the cookie jar trick.

    Ariza 4-4? So this is what he was saving it up for… hahaha!

    • Mark

      January 22, 2011 at 8:48 pm

      When Ariza plays well offensively, it’s a HUGE boon for our team. It’s not often, but look at the results.

  109. George

    January 22, 2011 at 8:45 pm

    I couldn’t have dreamed of a better third quarter

  110. Mark

    January 22, 2011 at 8:46 pm

    What an amazing quarter

  111. George

    January 22, 2011 at 8:49 pm

    Need to be careful starting the 4th quarter here, keep the intensity up

  112. peronas

    January 22, 2011 at 8:50 pm

    I’m surprised Splitter had the resolve to show his face in Mek’s paint again
