    Any chance for a Spurs "upset" as a 7 seed?

    Nuggets in 7 but it's basically a 50/50 for me.

    Spurs win the series because nobody likes overrated cold chicken nuggets.

    Can't remember the last time I felt less confident in a 2nd seed moving to the next round...

    I think I'm making a mistake favoring the Spurs here but...I feel like as the season went on they started to find their groove and as always are a hard elimination...especially for a young team that has started to waver at the end of the year.

    The one team you should never discount in the playoffs is a Popovich coached team. Old man has been going to the playoffs for longer than some Nuggets have been alive.

    I don't know. If you'd asked me a few weeks ago, I would've said the Spurs. But they peaked too early and have gone back to playing good, but inconsistent, ball. Denver did struggle a bit down the stretch, but they were a more consistent team all season. And they're really good at home and recently destroyed San Antonio there. Plus I do NOT trust DeRozan and Aldridge in the playoffs.

    I'll say Nuggets in 6.

    Spurs can take down this Nuggets team.

    What is it about these 2 teams that this matchup just "feels" boring ...?

    That’s why I really wanted them to finish 8th.

    Can’t believe I am saying this: rooting for the spurs to kick out the bum azz Denver for setting us up.

    It’s the spurs. It’s always the Spurs.

    However Denver has a better chance to knock out OKC.

    Good game early. The Spurs are being the Spurs, and Denver needs to step up at home. Pop might steal this game.
