San Antonio – Oklahoma City and Miami

Looks like San Antonio just beat the Thunder in overtime, 112-107, sending them into The Finals, and sending the city of San Antonio into a frenzy. Well, not quite. The city is definitely not in a frenzy, they want revenge. Revenge over the Thunder for a humiliating loss in 2012 and revenge over the Miami Heat, for the bitter Game Six loss last year.

They’ve achieved part of their goal … vanquishing the Thunder, who defeated them 4 games to 2 in 2012. The Spurs went into that series winning 8 playoff games in a row, and 18 in a row. After going up 2-0 on Oklahoma City, they proceeded to lose four in a row. The Spurs looked what the media likes to say, “old and slow” in those four games. Well, actually that was sports media saying that. The Spurs fought hard in those games, but the Thunder had James Harden in that series. If you’ve watched the Spurs, you know they can’t control James Harden at all.

Now, they are going to play Miami. I’m saying here the Heat have to be favored, despite the Spurs achieving home arena. I think Miami is going to win the series, because they don’t … can’t … go down 0-2. They don’t lose back-to-back playoff games, and they can string together wins. They are nearly invincible at home, especially during the playoffs.

But I do hope San Antonio wins. Not for them, but I want them to make sports talk media nationally cry. I want Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic to weep.




About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
