Default Did SA Intentionally Lose to the Lakers

Did San Antonio intentionally lose to the Lakers last week so they could play the Lakers in the first round? Parker going 1-10 FG made me think that they were planning on seeding position (2nd) and try to get the Lakers into the 7th seed. I think the Lakers are a better matchup then Houston due to their lack of speed. Just my thoughts on a Saturday night.

I'll tell you my thoughts when the Spurs spank the Lakers and run them to the ground. Avatar bet? And this is coming from a Laker fan but to think Lakers have a chance is a joke.

Why would the Spurs want to lose the HCA against the Thunder?

all pressure is on SA; no1's expecting anything from the lakers pre kobe injury much less now, its the ideal scenario for a trademark spurs playoff fail

Lakers are big and matchup well against the Spurs. No Kobe will impact the Lakers greatly, and MDA had never once outcoach Pops in the playoffs.

the series gonna be good but i predict the Lakers to advance

Because apparently the Lakers didn't win that game due to an impressive performance by the big men (albeit, Pau's terrible shooting) and the Lakers' bench PG outplaying the Spurs' starting PG.

Yeah, the Spurs felt like they needed the 2nd seed and decided to lose the game. That makes the most sense.

Looks like SA is going to have a easy series. Lakers have no perimeter shooting, no go-to player for baskets when they need it.

Because then everyone expects the Thunder to win the West which makes it easier for the Spurs to make the Finals since no one believes they can get there.
