Spurs Strategy for Durant, Westbrook

Just like the Thunder need a strategy for Tony Parker, the Spurs are going to need one for defending Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. Sticking Parker on Westbrook is a given, but it would be nice to see Spurs coach Gregg Popovich employ bigger 6-foot-7 Kawhi Leonard on him at times as well. And with league MVP Durant? Crowd his space as much as possible…and pray. Whatever Pop comes up with, he’s likely going to have to pop an Advil anyway.  (Photo: Christian Petersen/Getty Images)
