The Spurs will change their starting lineup in Game 3, replacing Pau Gasol with Kyle Anderson.
Gasol has been largely ineffective in this series and his lack of footspeed and defensive deficiencies would’ve made it tough for him to crack 20 minutes against the Warriors even if he was running hot. Anderson will probably spend some time guarding Golden State’s toughest covers while adding some secondary scoring. LaMarcus Aldridge will now act as the center in the starting group, so we’ll see if the Warriors counter by going away from JaVale McGee.
