Default WC PLAYOFFS RD 1: (1) SA SPURS vs (8)DAL MAVERICKS

STARTERS:

SAS

Tony Parker
Danny Green
Kawhi Leonard
Tim Duncan
Tiago Splitter

DAL

Jose Calderon
Monta Ellis
Shawn Marion
Dirk Nowitzki
Samuel Dalembert

KEY ROTATION PLAYERS:

SAS

Patty Mills
Marco Belinelli
Manu Ginobili
Boris Diaw

DAL

Devin Harris
Vince Carter
Dejuan Blair
Brandan Wright

Key Matchups:

SAS outmatches DAL in every way possible. DAL cant stop SAS' perimeter attack, nor Duncan inside, and Pop is a genius who will neutralize Ellis and DAL's 3 point game. DAL will need at least 2 players besides Dirk to seriously step up, and play well beyond their expectations, which I don't think is going to happen given SAS' discipline and coaching.

PREDICTION:

SAS IN 4

SAS in 5. I predict Dallas possibly getting 1 win at home VIA game winner Dirk. Defensively, Dallas won't have an answers for SAS. Parker and Mills will eat Calderon alive. VC and Marion will be too slow to close out guys like Green, Bellineli, and Ginobili from beyond the arc. Duncan will have his way with Dirk and Sammy D in the paint like how he always does.

Really wish it had been the Thunder against the Mavs and the Grizz against the Spurs.

Spurs in 5. There ball movement and overall team play is that much better. The Mavs will be lucky to push it to a 6 game series, but that's not going to happen.

The Spurs would destroy MEM like they did last year. MEM plays Prince too much(ie more than 1 minute) and SAS easily fronts/doubles ZBo, and due to MEM's lack of outside shooting they go through long scoring droughts. SAS is too smart defensively to lose against a team with poor spacing

Carlisle choosing to switch all pick and rolls against one of the fastest PGs in the NBA, having Dirk and Dalembert trying to guard him isn't a good idea.

Looks like you picked a bad time to post this comment. Harris has brought DAL back and given them the lead

Spurs are only 3-16 from beyond the arc and its a tie game. Once that 3 ball starts falling its over.

Whens the last time two #1 seeds lost their first game in the 1st round in the playoffs? This Mavs lineup is killing SAS
