    The Spurs have a good offense this season led by DeMar DeRozan and LaMarcus Aldridge, and in today's video I breakdown their spacing and movement. They don't pass like they used to, but they emply great offensive principles to create areas to attack. NBA, playoffs, Gregg Popovich.

        The most important part is making the shots.

          Their tactics are good but they seemed to always missed open shot.

              I don't watch basketball much, but having grown up with the sport, I really appreciate how team oriented and coordinated the Spurs are.

                        Uhhh....Spurts are on the verge of elimination !!!.... they struggled all season just to stay out of the 8th spot, while the Nugs contend for 1st place..did you honestly think they would get past them ??!!... sorry, but the game has finally passed him by... he hates the 3 point shot but that's the way it is NOW... nothing "beautiful" about it...if you're down by double digits, no problemo... just knock down a few 3's and the game will turn in your favor... who cares about scoring "in the paint"... it's gone the way of horse & buggy... doubt if he'll be back next year

                            Most of this are just simple standard plays 2nd one play is really terrible spaces are so wrong the thing is that they execute those plays really good

                                Good coaching but the player really need to finish it off. If they could just make all there shot, they are unstoppable. #GoSpursGo #InPopWeTrust

                                              The 3rd play with derozan is called first angle down derozan shouldn't go to the middle he should have just drove to the basket because he got jokic on him yeah he might get block but there's an 80% chance that he score or get fouled for a foul i know this play cuz my coach taught me it

                                                Crazy to think that if Popovich had talented players like the warriors then they truly would be unstoppable! 👀

                                                    Honestly a lot of this should be mandatory fundamentals everyone learns by high school, not dissing Pop but these should pretty basic rotations for anyone running pick and roll/ pick and pop, but amazingly most teams and coaches have zero idea what to do on offense at lower levels, and unfortunately higher levels too

This is why have a mobile center that can play defense makes your defensive rating go all the way up, all teams exploit the mismatch with a pick and roll to start their offense. If you switch on everything with guys that can guard 1 through 5, the offensive scheme doesn’t work too well anymore.

                                                                                I really like that weak side switch. You can get a favorable match up without even having to set a pick. Spurs have such beautiful off ball movement.
