Default Playoffs: (3) Spurs vs. (4) Jazz

I don't think this'll be close. The Spurs are still hungry and want a title; the Jazz have to be content getting where they are, and they lack playoff experience on this stage. Spurs in five. They took Game 1 and it wasn't as close as the score indicated. What do you think?

I don't know that this is going to be as easy as the Spurs made it look yesterday. One thing that has to be a bit disconcerting for the Spurs is that they got whipped on the boards. The thing that saved them was that they shot well and the Jazz did not. The second thing is that Tony Parker is so awful defensively. Deron Williams just abused him yesterday.

I still think the Spurs will win I just don't think it will be an easy go of it.

I think the Spurs in five still. Utah might get one at home, but so far, it hasn't been close. The Spurs are in another league.

Saturday's performance by the Spurs was an embarrassment. They do exactly what's necessary in exploiting the Jazz's weaknesses in games 1 & 2 then get blown out? Ridiculous IMO...

Sure, you can't sell Sloan short on his ability & experience to adjust to what the Spurs were doing but no way does that translate to a blowout, especially in a Conference Finals scenario...

This loss was more Spurs screw ups than a re-birth of Jazz basketball. Sad but obviously the case....

It's not uncommon to see a team let off the gas a bit when they are up 2-0...

I think this loss will get them back on track and they are still in control.

We will see San Antonio has never won a post season game in Utah so it should be interesting to see how Game Four plays out.

These are the most boring conference finals that I can remember and the finals are more than likely going to follow suit. All the flopping and complaining and lack of execution are setting the NBA back 25 years. Pathetic!

Spurs won convincingly to close this one out. Yawn.

The Spurs just did their jobs in this series. Everyone played on both ends of the floor and they did not miss open shots.
