Spurs Offense: The Kings do no have an answer for the pick and roll. Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili's eyes light up when they run pick and rolls. The Kings' big men do nothing to help Mike Bibby, Kevin Martin or Jason Hart, so Parker and Ginobili get great penetration and scoring opportunities. Look for the Spurs to continue a high volume of pick and rolls in Game 3.
