When Will the Spurs Lose Next?

When Will the Spurs Lose Next?
Written by Travis Pulver
Friday, 18 May 2012 19:36

mvptexas.com — The San Antonio Spurs have been on a bit of a winning streak of late—in case you haven’t noticed.

It isn’t unusual for a team to go ahead in a playoff series 2-0. Sweeping a team in its other playoff series is not unusual either. However, when you take into consideration that the Spurs entered the playoffs riding a 10-game winning streak you have to wonder what will—or can—slow these guys down.

“We’re not unbeatable,” Spurs guard Tony Parker said. “Anybody can beat anybody. We have to play our best basketball to go far.”

Well, if it is not tonight, they will not get their fourth double digit win streak of the season. Winning tonight would leave them needing only nine more to host the trophy!!

If I had to choose, I would say Sunday after they go up 3-0.

I figure the Clips will take one of the two back to backs.

Just watch -- it'll be @Hawks, and it'll be a game I'm attending, and I'll be pissed :P

And then I won't be pissed anymore when Leonard goes for 25 and the Spurs still beat the Hawks by double digits.

Trying to remember the last time a team took the first 8 games of the playoffs? Was it Jordan's Bulls the year they won 72 games?

Nah, Cleveland 2009. Swept both Detroit and Atlanta, then lost to Orlando in 6.

EDIT: Never mind, Orlando did it in 2010, too. Swept Charlotte and Atlanta, then lost to Boston in 6.

I think it's still pretty rare, it's just happened to occur a lot recently. Miami in 2005 is the only other time since going to a 7-game first round. Prior to that the Lakers going 15-1 in 2001, Indiana in 1999, and Chicago in 1993 are the only times it's happened in the past 22 years. The 72-10 Bulls didn't even do it.

I'll eat crow on this one. Couldn't see the Spurs winning the weekend B2B. Guess I should have learned from the two B2B2B sweeps late in the regular season....
