The run and gun Phoenix Suns are like the antithesis of the San Antonio Spurs and so far in the team’s Western Conference semi-final basketball betting matchup the Suns have also been the Spurs Kryptonite. The Spurs are a very good NBA betting team but they do not run the floor well and the Suns have been able to exploit this weakness to perfection on their way to a 2-0 lead in this NBA playoff betting series.
In the first two games of this basketball betting matchup the Suns have run the Spurs out of the gym. What’s most impressive about this sports betting feat is that the Spurs know exactly what the Suns are going to do, yet seem helpless to stop it. The Spurs are one of the best teams in the leagues at making in game adjustments are arguably the best in the NBA betting completion at making adjustments in 7 game series.
That –and Tim Duncan- is the main reason why the Spurs have won 4 NBA betting championships in ten seasons. But against the Suns they simply haven’t been able their opponents from scoring in the transition game. The Spurs have never been one of the better teams in NBA betting at getting up and down the court; or rather, because of the team’s personnel it’s preferred to play the half-court game.
However, never before in its recent NBA playoff betting series has it had so much trouble stopping an opponent from running. The Spurs may not like to run the ball and may not be good at it, but it’s never had a problem getting back on defense against its sports betting opponents. Until now. Much of that likely has to do with the age of the Spurs.
They are no longer spring chickens and these grey beards are having a tough time trying keep pace with the marathon Suns. Don’t carve the epitaph on the Spurs NBA playoff betting gravestone just yet, but this must find a way to limit the Suns transition points or this basketball betting series will be over very shortly.
