The only reason the Miami/Indiana series is that physical is because the youngsters in Indiana are talking trash, getting up in people's faces at the drop of a dime, etc. The Spurs would never do that, nor react the way Miami has. We can reference the Memphis series, but that series was very close, and the only reason SA lost was because they didn't have a reliable (or healthy) closer. The Spurs can handle the physicality. They choose not to make it a physical game.
