Not like we didn't see this coming, but the Spurs played about as well as Giuliani's primary run. Did anyone notice a complete replica of the Suns-Spurs series in this round?
Game 1 was exasperatingly lost when big leads were dashed and the other team hit big shots.
Game 2 was a comfortable win for the home team.
Game 3, they decided to turn up the energy and play more like mid-life crisis men instead of the senior citizens that they are and snuck by with a win.
Game 4, well, when you can't make a shot and play as lethargic as Mary-Kate Olson's appetite big things aren't gonna happen.
And then there was Game 5. Following the prececedence set by Phoenix the Spurs got off to a big lead. Only to see the Lakers in the rearview gaining closer, closer, closer. It was like a horror movie. I knew it was coming. By the fourth quarter the Lakers were in control and the Spurs egos deflated like that Jared dude from Subway.
It was over. And now comes the fun part - waiting to see if it's Boston or Detroit to round out the final deuce.
I'm pulling for Detroit, but I also cheer for the Suns, and if the basketball Gods do anything, it's consistently make the team I cheer for lose.
Hence Go Boston!!!!
