Pau Gasol played just 16 minutes on Sunday, finishing a heartbreaking loss with only five points.
Gasol was able to somewhat salvage the day with two rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block. The Spurs were able to hide some of Gasol’s defensive weaknesses against Houston since the Rockets allow opponents to completely ignore the mid-range area, but the Warriors present a much tougher cover for players of Gasol’s ilk. It’s going to be tough for him to log a ton of minutes in this series.
