People have rewrote history - the Spurs used to be a great defensive team, have lapses during the season, and then by the end of the season jell. And this jelled team would beat you down.
Now, they are a better offensive team, lesser defensively, and streaky at times. Once they hit their hot streak, everyone said "thats what they always do, its time to kickass"
i think this is a close series, but i have no reason to think the spurs pull it out. The mavs (and spurs) both didnt play to their best in game 1. i think as the series goes on, the tempo picks up and the spurs will be in trouble.
I think today the spurs try to knock dallas out right off the bat. if dallas survives the early charge, SA is in trouble.
