    Default 2012 NBA Playoffs: (1) San Antonio vs. (5) LA Clippers

    Great matchup on paper. Paul vs. Parker, Duncan vs. Griffin. A young hungry clipper team again a veteran spurs group looking for another title.

    This series should be a lot closer than people think, as the clippers can hit the spurs where they're weak. Still, it's just hard to see them advancing to the conference finals. Just too much depth.

    Prediction: spurs in 7

    Spurs in 5. I just don't see it being a very competitive series.

    Spurs are too good and too deep for the Clippers, but the Clippers will find a way to win 2 games.

    The Spurs will win out until they are the champions.

    Blake Griffin is probably wetting himself right now. He looked terrified in the first round, and now he has to play the Spurs.

    Tough to imagine a team that nearly lost three in a row to an extremely inconsistent Grizzlies team can beat the Spurs right now. I think CP3 will will them to a win, but the rest of the games will be 10+ point wins.

    He outplayed Zach Randolph for most of the series, and Randolph is a better player right now than Tim Duncan. Yeah, I'm sure he's terrified.....

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

    Keep doubting the Clips, this series is going the distance assuming Paul and Blake are near 100%.

    Is Diaw vs. Griffin a battle between the least athletic big man and the most athletic big man in the league?

    Here is what is wrong with the Spurs: Parker is guarding Paul when Paul's teammate knocks Paul down. While the ball is still live Parker reaches down to HELP HIM UP instead of stepping on him. Doesn't he know that won't get him any street cred? Soft.

    And in the game right now it is a draw between them. And as for being better than Duncan right now....

    I don't think any power forward is playing better than Duncan right now.

    Its been a long time since i have seen perimeter defenders be able to put their hands and push like the Clippers have gotten to in this game. i guess if you do it all the time they won't call it. Hasn't helped though as Parker just showed.

    I could live with the Pacers playing the Spurs for the 2012 ABA championship
    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    The Clippers will be pretty good next year if they grow from this experience.

    I'm going to be rooting for the Thunder, b/c I think we can beat them in the Finals. We can't beat SA.
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    I still laugh at the people that didn't want him here, the guy is playing great and is a nice fit for SA, underrated signing of the year if you ask me.

    My thoughts exactly. The Pacer's biggest advantage is how good of a TEAM they are. OKC has very likable guys like Durant and Ublocka, but they don't play team basketball very well. Pacers could expose that.

    The Spurs are the masters at team basketball.

    I'll eat my crow. I thought he would not be a good player again. But I was wrong. I still don't know if he would have been as successful here as he is in SA.

    But the most underrated signing of the year is clearly David West.
