Carry this, bro.
In the highly competitive West, a grand total of two games separated the second seed from the fifth seed. I recall hearing confident predictions not so long ago of a Memphis-Miami Finals.
I said that Memphis would be an interesting matchup with Miami. I picked SA in the series against them though, although I didn't expect a sweep.
Pop essentially punted the end of the season, losing 3 games in a row, while the 3rd, 4th, & 5th seeds won 3, 7, & 2 games to end the season because they were playing for something. In reality there was about a 5 game difference between OKC/SA and everyone else, and Westbrook's injury torpedoed their chances. Spurs haven't played a particularly good team yet, at least by playoff standards.
