Him and Tim completely locked down the paint these past two games. It's not a fluke either during that stretch where TD was out Splitter pretty much shut Down Nene once and Aldridge twice, he played great defense.
Anderson looks great and so does Kawhi, RJ looks a lot better too, TJ was a ball hog but now he said he understands his role and has done a damn good job of facilitating the offense.
The spurs lost to the grizz last year cause their guards got posted up on, rebounded on, and scored on at will. This was fixed by adding Kawhi, giving up hill thus giving JA playing time and SPlitter getting playing time.
The west is wide open as well the spurs match up extremely well with the Thunder, the mavs are done they can't replace TCs defense or Bareas scoring, LA weakened themselves dramatically by trading Odom who was a matchup nightmare for the Spurs, that leaves the Nuggets and Clips who the Spurs can def. beat.
bonner doesnt suck too bad he can make threes and he does spred the floor..and blair can guard some of the power forwards like griffn...i agree with you on spliter..but i think rasho nastarivic was better
i pretty much agree with your whole post
