Last year, the San Antonio Spurs were the #1 seed but lost to the #8 seed Memphis Grizzlies. This year, the Spurs are once again the top seed and are facing the #8 seeded Utah Jazz. The Spurs are hoping to avoid the scenario of another early exit in the playoffs.
The Spurs have been nothing less than phenomenal in the latter part of the regular season. San Antonio ended the season on a ten game winning streak in which they never scored below 105 points and won 31 of their last 38 games. The numbers are incredible for this team. For an NBA team described as “old”, they have some serious skill and talent. Don’t be surprised if the Spurs make it all the way.
Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili have been insanely amazing in their winning streak at the end of the season. These two should be at least discussed in the MVP race and ending the season on a strong run is even more impressive.
Unfortunately for the Utah Jazz, I don’t think they stand even a slight chance against this team. Right now, this team is too pumped up and is better than any other team in the NBA. The Spurs remind me of the New York Giants at the end of their season. The Jazz may not win this year,but next year I have no doubt that they will be back in the playoffs and ready to play. But it’s hard to win against a team that’s been playing as well as San Antonio.
NBA fans can look forward to plenty of scoring in this series, even if it only from San Antonio. Don’t miss out the San Antonio Spurs and the Utah Jazz in what should be some excellent basketball. Get your tickets now at Frontrow.com.Eric Drouant
