Kawhi Leonard’s elite effectiveness in the pick and roll

Kawhi Leonard’s elite effectiveness in the pick and roll

In this week’s installment of the PtR roundtable, we look at Kawhi’s offense, LaMarcus Aldridge's rebounding woes, and more. 1 - Kawhi Leonard is one of the best in the league at scoring off the pick and roll. Should he work with screens more often or keep his attack varied? Erler: Variety is the spice of life, or something. It's good to have defined strengths, but if there's one thing Leonard has shown throughout his career, it's that it's unwise to ever put a cap on his abilities or to limit him in any way. His game keeps expanding, year after year, and he keeps adding different clubs...

Evaluating LaMarcus Aldridge 2.0

Evaluating LaMarcus Aldridge 2.0

In his second year as a Spur, Aldridge has had to once again make adjustments on both ends of the floor. His ups and downs serve as a barometer for the team and how it can improve. LaMarcus Aldridge’s second year as a Spur got off to an interesting start before the season even began, with a flurry of rumors temporarily casting doubts over his long-term future in San Antonio. He and the team quickly put the story to bed, and their early-season success has (for now) brushed aside the likelihood of any mid-season move. But this has been a weird season. At 15-4, the Spurs sport the record...

San Antonio vs. Dallas, Final Score: Spurs outduel Mavericks, 96-91

The Spurs overcame the absence of Tony Parker and LaMarcus Aldridge to hold off their rival from the north and earn their sixth straight win, improving to 11-3 on the season and moving Coach Pop up to 7th on the all-time coaching wins list. The Spurs, who were beginning a stretch of four games in six nights, were without the services of Tony Parker, LaMarcus Aldridge, Dewayne Dedmon, and Nico Laprovittola. The Dallas Mavericks were without some talent of their own, missing Dirk Nowitzki and four other key contributors as the Texas rivals battled it out in San Antonio with depleted rosters....

Lakers vs. Spurs Final Score: Lakers show impressive resilience in 116-107 loss

The Lakers almost toppled one of the NBA’s top teams, even with D’Angelo Russell sitting out. The Los Angeles Lakers fought a valiant battle without D’Angelo Russell but couldn’t keep up with the San Antonio Spurs in a 116-107 loss. The purple and gold survived a 39-point third quarter from San Antonio and had the deficit down four points in the final two minutes, but couldn’t put together enough stops to complete the comeback. Tony Parker hit the dagger with 33.6 seconds left, and the Lakers finally fell. LaMarcus Aldridge was unstoppable in the fourth quarter, scoring 10 of...

The Spurs’ starting unit has had issues

Through seven games, the Spurs’ starting five hasn’t exactly been killing it. The Spurs have had the decent start to the season. Seven games in, they’re 5-2, including a franchise-record 4-0 start. They blew out the super-team Warriors last month, and Kawhi Leonard is averaging 26 points and five rebounds per game. But that’s about the extent of the good news.
