Tony Parker Has Just One Layup In This Game

The Thunder have done an incredible job on Tony Parker thus far, holding him completely out of the paint. The Spurs need to make an adjustment. Some ideas.

1. Start the pick and roll out higher on the court, giving Parker more room to get a head of steam.

2. Have the big man dive more aggressively to the rim instead of popping to the elbow. Tiago Splitter did a nice job of this in the second quarter. (cc @BKoremenos).

3. Use Manu Ginobili more often.

I think option 1 is the best, but we’ll see what the Spurs do.
