Those worries should be all but out the door after the Spurs regained home-court advantage Friday night in Houston. It clearly means a ton they got 26 points, seven rebounds and four blocked shots out of LaMarcus Aldridge after he'd been pretty mediocre offensively through the first eight games of the playoffs, but Gasol's presence through the last two games has been crucial. There was one point in the game where James Harding was trying to will his team back into the game, but the Spurs were able to disrupt him when it mattered.
Houston has struggled to replicate that kind of performance ever since as San Antonio have tightened their offence to shoot 49.7 per cent overall and 36.7 per cent on 3-pointers over the past two games. Under in Game 3 broke the 6-game over streak, but this shouldn't be attributed to Parker's absence.
The Rockets like to camp out around that three point line, they did get 39 shots up from beyond the arc but they only made 12 of them.
Aldridge had it going all game, with the snap of the wrist and net we did not see in the first two games. Like he was saying, "OK I know I have to shoot this...thank God it went in". "Offensively we just got to get guys involved, guys just got to have confidence and knock down these shots and be aggressive".
Harden wasn't quite as electric with just 13 points on 3-of-17 shooting and zero points in the final period.
Green going to the bench also results in a considerable swing, with the team's net rating dropping from 5.5 to -1.7. Expect something similar next time out.
The void left behind by Tony Parker, lost for the playoffs to a knee injury sustained in Game 2, was never going to be filled by one player. He was assertive and on target with most of his shots.
"I think that's one of the hardest things, and I think he's tough to guard, but". "This is the big game, tonight".
Harden finished with 43 points in Game 3, but only five assists. Either way, the team needs something more than a few rebounds out of their future HOFer. San Antonio led by 14 at the time, but there was a still plenty of time for the Rockets to jack up 10-straight 3-pointers and mount a stirring comeback.
The Rockets were 22 of 38 inside the restricted area in Games 2 and 3 when Gasol was on the floor according to the stats provided by the National Basketball Association media site, which is not good. Both lessened the burden Leonard usually carries on offense, allowing him to focus more energy on the defensive end.
