PBT Extra: Spurs will bounce back in Game 2, but opening loss exposed real issues

The San Antonio Spurs were exposed by the Houston Rockets in their Game 1 loss in the second round. Here's how they can turn things around.

Often when a team loses a playoff game, particularly Game 1, there’s a big call for adjustments when what the team actually needs to do is just execute its strengths better. Be a better version of the team that got them to this point in the playoffs in first place.

There is certainly a little of that with San Antonio after it got routed at home by James Harden and Houston in Game 1 of their second-round series. However, in this case, the Spurs have to make adjustments as well, something I get into in this latest PBT Extra.

Bottom line, if you see a lot of David Lee on the court for the Spurs the rest of this series, that’s a bad sign in San Antonio.
