Spurs sweeping  Grizz.

Contrary to most predictions. Grizz never had the offense to contend with the Spurs.

 

Having a special player (esp one in form) helps.  Grind out games will only take you so far.

Now we wait for Miami. 

 

I do not think Spurs can win more than 2 games against Miami. We will see

All those years of choking, the Spurs were eventually going to return to the finals again. Especially with no Phil Jackson around to outcoach Pop.

On to the finals, where if they play Miami they will lose in 5 or less.  Perimeter threat and Bosh and Duncan matchup just fine and LeBron will have his way inside against the attempted defense of Duncan and Splinter.

perfect story for him now to avenge the 2007 loss.

That's how it will be if Miami plays San Antonio. 

San Antonio will lose in 5, they can't match the Heat on the perimeter their only interior presence aside from Duncan is Thiago and they can't stop LeBron James in the paint.

The Heat are the basically the Warriors except 200% better and more comfortable playing half-court. Then again, what do I know I picked Memphis in this series.

I'll pick Miami for the same reasons.

The Spurs don't match up as well and Miami is a MORE consistent team from the perimeter and won't be able to stop LeBron inside. 

Spurs will lose in 5 to Miami.

The team that gave the Spurs the most issues and problems was the Warriors, because of the damage they can do from the perimeter and never looking to attack from the post. 

The two teams that looked to attack from the post, the Lakers and the Grizzlies got swept.

The one team that attacked from the perimeter beat the Spurs twice(nearly 3 times) and unfortunately Miami isn't gonna choke away a game against them if they get that kind of lead. 

Miami is a more consistent perimeter team than the Warriors, and are deeper as well, they also have LeBron James that will get to the rim at ease against Splitter. 

Just because I was wrong about the Warriors doesn't mean I will be about the Heat.

But if you'd like to pick against me and say the Spurs will beat them be my guest.

You're focusing your hate on the wrong team. Turn it towards Miami now that San Antonio is the only hope.

I think the Spurs will make it a series vs. Miami. Duncan can still pull out a classic performance on any given night, Tony Parker has been great this entire postseason, and their supporting cast looks ready to go. Pop is the best at getting roleplayers to buy into his system, and they trust in it completely. Miami would obviously have the best player in the series, but Parker and Duncan have been much better than Wade and Bosh thus far.

 

Only LeBron has really shined in the playoffs for the Heat, haven't been too impressed with anyone else on that roster. If San Antonio can keep his supporting cast from going off (Chalmers, Haslem, etc.), then they could definitely take it in 6.

I see a Heat-Spurs finals going 7 games. Home court could be the deciding factor just as it was in our series against the celtics. And Majesty is right Miami is much more versatile from the perimeter than Memphis or us obviously. But I don't see the Heat winning in anything less than 6 games the spurs are playing phenomenal basketball right now the key is going to be whether or not they can execute as well as they did in this series and against us. And Miami's three-point shooting will be key also.
