this team never seems to age, each year they are in the hunt
during the regular season and play solid Playoff basketball.

Going back to last year's playoffs:

San Antonio swept the Jazz 4-0
then went on to sweep the Clippers 4-0
up 2-0 to OKC until the meltdown, losing the next 4 games.

Up 10-0 before the 0-4 implosion.

This year:

Swept the Lakers 4-0
...and will be rested vs GS or Denver

[if] they go on to face OKC in the WCF, edge Spurs
[if] they face the Clippers in the WCF, even matchup
[if] they face Memphis in the WCF, edge Spurs

.....San Antonio vs Miami for the Championship?

Perhaps a last hooray fort he Spurs, this vet team and coach Pop.

USA TODAY:

No. 2 San Antonio Spurs (58-24) vs. No. 5 Memphis Grizzlies (56-26)

  • Game 1 in San Antonio: Sunday, May 19, 3:30 p.m. ET, ABC
  • Game 2 in San Antonio: Tuesday, May 21, 9, ESPN
  • Game 3 in Memphis: Saturday, May 25, 9, ESPN
  • Game 4 in Memphis: Monday, May 27, 9, ESPN
  • Game 5 in San Antonio: Wednesday, May 29, 9, ESPN
  • Game 6 in Memphis: Friday, May 31, 9, ESPN
  • Game 7 in San Antonio: Sunday, June 2, 9, ESPN

Season series: Tied 2-2.

How they made it: The Spurs beat the Golden State Warriors 4-2 in the second round andLos Angeles Lakers 4-0 in the first. The Grizzliesbeat the Oklahoma City Thunder 4-1 in the second roundandLos Angeles Clippers 4-2 in the first.

Points per game (per 100 possessions): Spurs 103.0 (105.9), Grizzlies 93.4 (101.7).

Points allowed per game (per 100 possessions): Spurs 96.6 (99.2), Grizzlies 89.3 (97.4).

Matchups worth watching: Spurs point guard Tony Parker vs. Grizzlies point guard Mike Conley, Spurs center Tim Duncan vs. Grizzlies center Marc Gasol.

Scoring leaders: Parker (20.3 ppg), Grizzlies power forward Zach Randolph (15.4 ppg).

Why San Antonio will win: Gregg Popovich's team will make any adjustment they need to in transitioning from the hot-shooting Warriors to the physical Grizzlies. They have more consistent outside shooting than Memphis, who won't be able to do much to respond if Danny Green, Matt Bonner or Kawhi Leonard get hot.

Why Memphis will win: The Grizzlies have the perimeter defense to neutralize Parker and Manu Ginobili, and the frontcourt combination of Gasol and Randolph should be more than enough firepower to combat Duncan.

Did you know? The Grizzlies beat the Spurs in six games when they met in the playoffs in 2011 and were only the fourth No. 8 seed in NBA history to upset a first seed. They were the second team to do so since the first round of the playoffs expanded to seven games in 2003.

Prediction: Grizzlies in 7.

Sounds like Tony have the SAS going to the finals but in 7 games.

Without thinking much Mem seem like the correct play but if one really look into the series, I might have to give the SAS the edge. Im going to lay off game #1 to see how a few matchups play out though.

BOL to you tony.

These teams are completely different than the teams that played in '11.  Manu is healthy.  The Spurs are a perimeter oriented team with Green, Kawhi providing much of the support.  The Grizz rely heavily on Zbo and Marc on offense. And their perimeter D has gotten much better IMO. 

The Grizz faced a Clip team w/ Blake hurt and an OKC team w/o Russ.  They've played well, but they haven't  faced a completely healthy contender yet.  I like SA as well.

If you actually read what I said, my suggestion was to use games 1-4 as research and then use that to your advantage in games 5-7. Big difference from the narrow-minded comment that you made.

that means your predicting the griz will win the 7th game in san antonio.  doubtful.  would more likely be that the griz would win in six or the spurs win in 7.  but this is a series that we have to see unfold-- injuries etcetera.  great initiation of discussion.  thank you.  pop certainly made the adjustments against the warriors.  and the warriors wore down (which is odd cause they're younger).  green and leanard are huge difference makers.  two years ago green and leanard were geroge hill and richard jefferson.  splitter was mcdysse.  oj mayo filled the tayshon prince minutes.   stuff to think about.  this time, i believe, san antonio has a slight edge.  but that memphis defense is noticeable.  tony allen is a superstar, but since he plays defense he's invisible as far as the commercials go.
