    EDIT: I'm an idiot. Forgot that even had the Spurs lost to the Kings, they still win the division by virtue of having the tiebreaker from beating New Orleans and the Rockets losing to Dallas tonight. Please disregard this thread as it was made in haste on a faulty premise.

    Yeah I thought about that crap.

    No wonder Yao got 4 fouls in one qtr, like the Refs realized the Rockets were just too good and Dallas needed help :rolleyes:

    it's better for us that they won that game. we are playing in portland instead of in SA because of it.

    Never mind, you're right, I'm a complete idiot. I forgot the Spurs would have the tiebreaker regardless based on tonight. My apologies for this thread. :(

    I'm just so livid, but I guess the only person to blame is Byron Scott for not having the common sense of a 2-year-old to FOUL with a three-point lead in the final seconds.

    So SA stole an overtime and Yao gets four pissy fouls in the fourth....conspiracy?

    Maybe RA is just good when his team plays good and really bad when his team plays bad. He does all his coaching in practice. During the games, players just do what they want and he waits for his chance to be forced to substitute someone because of fouls or utter exhaustion.

    i'm with you man...while i think portland is probably our best first round matchup of the 7 playoff teams, i dont even care. i wanted to win the division while it was there for us. that's an accomplishment at least. i just am in shock that we went from a potential hosting 2 playoff series and winning the division for the first time in 16 years to playing the playoffs on the road, losing the division on a buzzer beater, and winning the potential chance to get demolished by the lakers in round 2, all in a span of roughly the final 5 minutes of game 82.

    That illegal 3 won't change anything. Spurs still have a better division record.

    people, re-read the damn thread if you're going to respond to something. you are all either "correcting" what was already correct, not knowing what you are talking about, or talking about a different game than we are.

    wouldve rather played spurs anyways...we've beaten them in san an as opposed to por, where we havent won there this year.

    plus more incentive to beat them since its a division rival
