Amen to that. They're the defending champs, they had the best record in the NBA, they won 8 more games than us this year, and they had the best winning percentage since the 2006-07 Mavericks. They're the favorites, we're the underdogs by any objective measure.
Given all that, I'm surprised even 5 commentators picked us to win, and that more see us winning in 6 than see them winning in 6 (although if you think the Spurs are going to win, you probably don't think they're going to do it with a Game 7 win on the road).
