The Spurs' Offense Is Disturbingly Great.

Kelly Dwyer from Ball Don't Lie had a tweet I really like over halftime:

But it's true: the auto-storyline surrounding San Antonio is that, hey they're boring, and defense is boring, and therefore, they win with overwhelming defense.

But their offense is just so absurd to watch. They just had a stretch of a few possessions that went like this

Open Danny Green 17-footer (missed)

Open Danny Green three (nailed it)

Uncontested Tiago Splitter Layup (duh)

Tim Duncan standing by himself for four seconds, staring at the defense in anger for not guarding him, before throwing up an open 19-footer (obviously drilled it)

Tim Duncan draws foul (and hits a runner)

That's impeccable. The Clippers are holding tight due to Blake Griffin with some unreal dunks - he has two nuts ones this quarter, including one over Tim Duncan - and him finishing, and occasionally not finishing, in back-to-the-basket situations. Meanwhile, find the possession that doesn't end in an open shot, or smart look, for San Antonio. It's unreal.
