    Default 2017 NBA Playoffs round 2: (2) San Antonio vs. (3) Houston

    Houston really should win this series. They're more dynamic, they're playing better and they're hungrier. And they match up very well with the Spurs. However the Spurs are way more experienced and I think they're calmer in crunch time, where I think this series will be decided.

    This should be a really fun series. Anytime two Texas teams face off you get great drama.

    Prediction: in 6

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    I'm hoping for the Spurs in this one.
    Larry Bird qouted March 25th. 2015:

    Bird: I wanted to keep our group together because in the summer, if David and Roy opt out, we're back to zero, really. We don't have that much, so you leave your options open. If we did make a trade, I didn't want to take on a lot of contracts -- because that's what usually happens. Plus, I liked my guys. They're playing well. If we keep the core together and Paul comes back healthy, we'll be right back to where we were.

    Go Spurs Go!

    SanAn in 6, while we all weep watching Kawhi dominate this series.
    It's a new day for Pacers Basketball.

    I think Rockets in 6 or Spurs in 7, should be a great series.

    I'll take Houston I guess.

    I would prefer SA, but I think Houston could get this. SA's frontcourt vs. Houston's backcourt. Should be interesting at least!

    If Houston plays the way they did against OKC, I think they lose this series in 5 or 6. They would allow OKC to get up on them early, and then would also allow them to rally late.

    I think SA wins in 6 even though Houston has the better team

    I would prefer Houston wins because I don't like the Spurs.

    Spurs in 6, think when it matters Kawhi will shut down Harden like PG does.
    "It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

    Houston really is scary when they're playing downhill.

    Beverly is breathing so much better not having to guard Westbrook anymore.

    I don't know why houston's three chucking is so much prettier than Cleveland's three chucking. Is it because I find the Cavs annoying or is there something schematic to it?

    Aldridge just isn't a good fit on the Spurs. If you're not going to run offense through him in the post or high pick and roll then why even bother playing him? He isn't an energy guy or a rim protector

    They were better without him when he was out.

    Mike Dantoni made some great adjustments, they are playing a different game than whatever they did vs OKC, this is amazing.

    Judging by how they're using him I don't doubt it. If you're not going to feature him put Dedmon in there and at least get some energy.
