This is a bad trend and as always it comes down to matchups. Based on matchups, I don't think the Spurs are better that INDY or OKC. LAC and HOU present matchup problems but not quite ready to say they are better despite the recent losses. As far as MIA is concerned, you'd like to think the Spurs could capitalize on their size advantage but that didn't work out last year.
At the quarter pole, it's INDY and OKC and then everyone else.
