Predicted bane of the Hawks existence: Manu Ginobili
According to ESPN's depth chart for the Spurs, San Antonio does not have a third string point guard...or a second string point guard. There first string point guard is hurt. So Mike Bibby will not be hid on a shooting guard tonight. He will just play one. (In fairness, George Hill is a combo guard, but fairness does not make for a good blog.)
Keys to the game:
- Hawks front court exploit their quickness and athleticism advantage.
- I hate the idea of switching the bigs onto Manu. I also hate the idea of our guards defending Manu. Soooo, here is to hoping Joe Johnson comes in with his first goal being to contain Ginobili.
- Transition defense is the new permanent bane of the Hawks. Fix that.
- Mandatory reference to boxing out Dejuan Blair.
