I’m beginning to doubt that the Spurs have the raw talent needed to get it done this year. They have a great coach and a fantastic system, but the Portlands and OKCs of the world just have too much talent on the floor for them anymore. I realize that Leonard missed the second half of this game and that Green and Splitter are still out, but none of those guys are as talented as Batum or Matthews in Portland, Jackson or Ibaka in OKC, Stephenson or West in Indy etc etc. We are in dire need of a big time infusion of pure talent if they hope to get to the Finals again this year.
Kevin Durant scored 30-plus points for the ninth straight game as the Thunder improved to 3-0 against the Spurs this season in a 111-105 win.
