Could Spurs be the 4th Seed?

By Daniel Strickland on February 8, 2006.

I know it seems improbable. The Spurs are on a 6-game winning streak, have won 9 of their last 10 and are on pace to have the best record in franchise history.

Yet there it is, the Spurs are currently the 4th seed in the Western Conference

I know, I know, it’s way to early be thinking about this. But who would have thought it possible, even just a month ago, that the Mavericks would be playing such great ball? They’ve won 12 straight and are now 1/2 game ahead of the Spurs.

Even though the Pistons are attracting speculation about whether they can win 70 games this season, they’ve lost 3 of their last 5 and are just 1-1/2 games ahead of the Mavericks and 2 games ahead of the Spurs for homecourt advantage throughout the playoffs.

As we all know, the second half of the season is typically when the Spurs crank it up a notch. Let’s see if the Mavericks and Pistons can keep it up.

    I don’t understand why people still don’t take the Mavs seriously. These are not the Don Nelson _allas Mavericks anymore. Their defense is obviously much improved, thanks in large part, no doubt, to Avery’s coaching, and they have some serious offensive firepower. I think the Spurs will still finish with the best record in the West, but it will be close. And I don’t think the Spurs match up with them particularly well, so whether we have home-court advantage or not, they will be a tough 2nd-round matchup.
