If the Spurs win 4 straight then that will prove the Grizzlies coach is a comedian not a guy who can coach

Leave my Nuggets and Karl out of this, please and thank you.

The Spurs lost game 1 period.

You proved you nothing about basketball because George Karl's team didn't 4 in a row, they lose 3 in a row in a 5 game series. So there is no connection

dude are you serious? i know nothing about basket ball yet you think the 2005 and 2007 nba playoff 1st rounds where best of 5? the nba changed to best of 7 in the 1st round after the 2002 season. the spurs beat the nuggets in 2005, 4-1 after losing the 1st game at home, and then again in 2007 after losing the 1st game at home. also george karl was the coach of the bucks when the 1st round was best of 5.

come on man i know you can do better.

wait arent you the guy who said the 76ers would win 3 games against any of the top teams in the east? your basketball knowledge is lacking, never mind.

on a side note, the spurs lost game 1 of the 2003 1st round to the suns at home as well.
notice any sort of pattern going on here? yes, 2003, 05, 07 the spurs all lost the 1st game at home and went on to win titles.

As endearing as your condescension was, it doesn't add anything to your argument.

Teams that go down 0-2 and tie the series up at 2-2 are generally relatively evenly matched. In this case, it's my contention that the Pacers aren't on that level. Do they take 1 game at home? Yeah, maybe. But if you think Indy is going to tie up this series 2-2, I don't think we're watching the same game.

There was nothing from Game 1 that lead me to believe that this will be an evenly-matched series.

The Pacers showed they are good enough to protect their home court. So like I said the series will be tied at 2-2 and after that Game 5 will be crucial
