+1. OKC just made it interesting, that's all. I'm really looking forward to the next game and I'm still rooting for OKC, but the Spurs are always dangerous. The winner of game 5 takes the series!

I think the spurs will still win this series. I doubt that OKC will win game 7 at SA, so that means they'd have to win games 5 and 6, which would mean the Spurs would have to lose 4 in a row. I don't see that happening.

Dunno. Spurs look solved to me.

Heat had three wide open looks to either go ahead or win it. Battier, Chalmers and Wade all missed good looks and they actually executed in the endgame well for once (except for that horrible Lebron pass to Haslem at the end of regulation - it was the right pass, just badly thrown or deflected).

oh wells, what are you gonna do...

I think it's more likely OKC wins a game 7 in SA than running the table.

Think we'll see a lot more of Manu. Screw starting Green.

So if OKC wins this, do we see a flood of articles lamenting how the Spurs went from one of the most dominant playoff runs ever (well...you know, through the first 10 games) into a bunch of chokers?

I hate ESPN sometimes.

You're just assuming right now though. I'm not the biggest ESPN fan but you already judging before you even see what they say.

I think the Spurs will get their credit, in the beginning of the season, some were doubting they even make the playoff and to be as dominant as they were was just insane. They got outplayed by a younger and quickly developing team, simple as that.

I'm more giving them shit for talking about the Spurs in the context of the greatest playoff runs ever before they had even closed out the conference finals. Everyone wants to crown the new thing, but come on. The Spurs are a very good team, at least wait until the season is over before getting into the historical context.
