The 2008 playoffs just started an hour ago and conventional wisdom has it that the Celtics will face the Lakers in the Finals and the San Antonio Spurs’ season might be over two weeks from now. No doubt, with all the drama of last year’s series, when Robert Horry checked Steve Nash into the scorer’s table during game four and Amare Stoudamire and Boris Diaw were suspended for game five…

For the record, here are my quickie playoff picks. Feel free to make yours…East 1) Boston over 8) Atlanta in four. I’d love for something cute to happen just to frustrate Simmons, but the Hawks were running on fumes for the past two months just trying to hold on to the last spot and are obviously thrilled just to be here. 2) Detroit over 7) Philadelphia in six. A terrible…

Game 82 vs. Utah: Spurs 109, Jazz 80 Well that sure was a different slice of meatloaf than the hard, crusty, flavorless but sure as heck not odorless brick of dog crap we’ve had forced down our gullets for the past two weeks, eh? The Spurs played defense. The Spurs hit open shots. The Spurs (waitforitWaitForItWAITFORIT!!!!) actually RAN A FAST BREAK or ten. This, ladies and germs is the team…

Just to prove how wild the West has been this year, with one game left in the regular season, the Spurs could finish as high as second and as low as sixth. My concern is that they’ll finish third, which isn’t good news. More on that in a second. Two weeks ago I asked our readers, “Who will the Spurs play in the first round of the playoffs?“ As of…

I’d like to personally thank the 18 managers who participated in the 2007-2008 Spurs Dynasty Fantasy Leagues on Yahoo! Sports and congratulate our finalists: San Antonio Spurs Dynasty (ID# 4323) Final:  (1) Terremoto Williams vs (3) Chile Verde 3rd Place Game:  (4) Kilgore Rockets vs (2) Chicago_dx San Antonio Spurs Dynasty II (ID# 108780) Final:  (4) Boston Celtix vs (2) DeadMoney 3rd Place Game:  (1) Belarus Zubrs vs (3) Guacamole Interestingly enough, only two…

Consider this: The New Orleans Hornets are in first place in the West, tied with the Spurs. The Spurs have the longest active winning streak in the league at 7 games. This comes after starting off the month of March with a 5-5 record. The Dallas Mavericks are occupying the 7th seed in the West, but are only a game ahead of the 9th seed Nuggets. Smart money says the…

If the playoffs started today, the Spurs would face the Denver Nuggets. But with just three games separating the top six teams in the West, and 5.5 games separating the top 9 teams, I leave it to the wisdom of SpursDynasty readers to answer the latest poll question: Who will Spurs play in first round? Golden State Warriors Dallas Mavericks Denver Nuggets Houston Rockets Phoenix Suns Utah Jazz Los Angeles…

Editor’s note: We had some technical difficulties today, so you’ll also find Michael’s post on Pounding the Rock Game 7o @ Dallas: Spurs 88, Mavericks 81 Good news, douche! After April 15, no Mavs blogger will have any interest in entering your locker room.(AP Photo/LM Otero)So. The pertinent question on everybody’s mind… are we back? Christ, I have no idea. I wish I could believe. It would’ve been much easier…

After winning 11 in a row over the course of 25 days, the Spurs have lost three of their last four in six days, including last night’s 25-point beating at the hands of Chris Paul (26 points, 17 assists), David West (29 points, 10 rebounds) and the New Orleans Hornets. Are these recent losses evidence of the Spurs age? Maybe, but Tim Duncan has played extremely well during the past…
