They don't have the greatest mix of players. Yeah, they're talented, but I'm not sure Bulter and Marion in the same lineup is what I would want. I like their rotation at center, but they need another dependable shooter. Jason Terry has never been the most dependable scorer. Marion is past his prime and Kidd is not a shooter you want to count on despite his shooting percentage this season.
Dallas has a talented team, but the pieces don't fit together perfectly. Dallas really could use a Micheal Redd type of shooting guard. A guy that can score 20PPG and be consistent.
How did Dallas "choke?" in this situation? Have any of you ever seen a 7th seed like the Spurs before? San Antonio is flat out capable of going to the finals at this point. Which is crazy, because I had them pegged as being a first or second round exit, but they look pretty strong so far. Dallas fell to a a tough team this year.
