    No matter what happens the rest of the way, our play-in tournament matchup is set: we will be playing the New Orleans Pelicans. The only question now is who will have homecourt advantage for that game.

    Any analyses? Predictions?

    Iím going to go out on a limb and say the Spurs will win this game, regardless of who has home court advantage. The Spurs have been the better team throughout the regular season (+0.4 point differential for the Spurs vs -0.9 for the Pelicans at the time of this writing) and theyíre peaking at the exact right time.

    Spurs - 102
    Pels - 113

    Big daddy Val has another play-in game for the ages against the Spurs with 23/16.

    I think we win. Then beat the Clippers in LA after they lose to Minnesota. Then we get rolled by PHX in 4.

    Then we don't even get a lottery pick. Spurs have 3 picks between #15 and #27.

    Give me, Shoot yourself in the foot, for $1,000, please Alex.

    and we're gonna trade up into the top 12 to get who we want, with some future concessions

    (and sexy results!)

    Spurs impressively toe the line between best possible postseason progress and best possible draft pick position combo. Have your cake and eat it too. Prob shouldn't advance past the play-in though.

    You just burst my bubble dude. There I was thinking in my head that we need to lock down McCullough by all means and we'd pull it out. Then it all comes back to when Val absolutely raped Jakub. Unfortunately, unless Jakub grows a pair, I think you may be right.

    CJ, JV and BI are a tough 3sum for this team to defend. Jak is going to be left in an island all night.

    I just hope we play hard!

    gonna be a close game. Spurs chances highly depend on Murray getting back to 100%

    Pop is best at getting the team ready for playoff atmosphere, scouting, match-ups. If it’s against a #1 or #2, Pop coukd even get a game 1 upset if a 7-game series. And this is against #9? I have to give it to Pop. Spurs over Pelicans.

    Wild horses won't be able to keep Murray out of this game. Especially if the Spurs do the smart thing and rest him these next 3 games.

    You make it sound like the game was over by 1st quarter. The Spurs actually came back and even had a lead and made it a game. But when your best player is shooting 6-of-21 you are likely to lose. The ball is round, things happen. If Iím playing the odds, Iíd give Pop the odds on getting the team ready and having a great plan against #9 is all Iím saying. Against a #1 or #2, itís a mountain to climb, but times have shown Spurs upset more formidable teams playing away. And if these guys are believing Pop, they can play unselfish basketball, play excellent defense. Anything could happen.

    it was last year and spurs were up by 2 with 6 minutes to go. so regardless if they were demolished by the end of the 1st, they came back and took the lead and made it a game.
    and that was with last years team. this year we are much more a team and they are gellin at the right time.

    If Murray doesn't play in either of the last two games he won't play in this one tbh.

    I feel like the Spurs would win a series between these teams. A single game is a toss-up.

    He's coming off a respiratory infection. If he doesn't get real game action to get his body back I to shape (he'll of been out nearly three weeks) I can't see Pop throwing him in there.
