Gregg Popovich doesn't love when the Spurs go to 'Leap Shot City'

Gregg Popovich would love for the San Antonio Spurs to obtain more shots at the basket in general. Those are the best, most efficient shots in basketball and his offense is designed to move the ball and team around in a manner that confuses the defense and opens up shots around the hoop. He begrudgingly employs the 3-point shot in his offense because while he doesn't love the presence of the shot in today'south game, he knows it'south just too valuable to ignore.

So when the Spurs are in a closeout game against the Memphis Grizzlies and are taking a lot of exterior shots, Population doesn't appreciate his team'south shot selection. During a timeout in Game four, Population told his team, "We're on the road. I'm not looking for Leap Shot City."

This definitely seems love a incorrect turn for his team when trying to find Memphis.

Population is right to not be pleased with the shot distribution, as nineteen of their forty attempts so distant have arrive from exterior of the paint, and they've already taken twelve 3-pointers. Too many of those 3-point shots have arrive early in the shot clock for his liking too. And he'south probably love to look more than just twelve shots out of forty happening in the restricted area.

Credit Memphis' defense for not giving up and being scrappy and disciplined sufficient to hold the Spurs far from the hoop, but Population is going to wish his team to hold executing love they did all season.
