    Why are the Spurs favored when the Cavs when 2-0 against them this season?

    Lebron is on fire and they should win. I don't know if they will or not, but they have a good chance.

    Werd F the Spurs they are a dirty ass team, plus the Cavs deserve it more, they had to go through Detroit, which to be honest I didn't think they would stand a chance and look what happened.

    Why are they favoring the Spurs? Its called experience. When was the last time CLE made it to the conf. finals, finals, won a championship? It doesn't matter if CLE beat them 5-0 in the season - this is what most people look for. The Spurs have been a solid team for much longer than the Cavs.

    And I dont think the refs gave either team an unfair amount of bad calls. They seemed to even out through the series. Bottom line - James and the Cav's stepped up where the Pistons didn't.

    I thought the no foul call when Lebron was clearly fouled in the closing seconds of game one painted a pretty clear picture

    Do you mean that coverage he'd gotten all night - as in the arms rip hamilton had in the air for like an hour before he got there? Pretty sure that was game 2 though.

    you might have been right, it was his last poesssion of the game and there was clearly a reach in foul. Ray Charles saw that shit

    Detroit is nothing close to what they were when they had Ben Wallace. Not taking anything away from the Cavs of course, they played their asses off.

    but i'm with Tommy on this one, the spurs will win it. I say it's a clean sweep, spurs in 4. This is a very bad match up for the cavs 1) they have zero experience 2) bruce bowen will be a pain in the ass for LeBron and 3) the Cavs have no answer for Tim Duncan or Tony Parker. I would throw Ginobili in there but he's been really inconsistent lately lol

    Forget the fact that they went 0-2 in the regular season against the cavs. a seven game series is a COMPLETELY different story.

    Oh, and for the record, I only said the Spurs would sweep them to piss you San Antonio haters off lol given the fact that this series goes 2-3-2, I say spurs in 6.

    I hate to say it but I agree the Spurs will probably win, who the hell is going to cover Duncan???? Drew Gooden... no way Donyell Marshall??? no way Duncan will go right by him.... it sucks I would love to see the Cavs win but I really doubt that is going to happen.

    I agree that Detroit wasn't the same - but the change from Ben to Webber was a shift in balance from defense to offense. I really just think the energy wasn't there - they could have beaten the Cavs if they showed even a little of what they do during the season. That's what has killed them the last few years - a lack of drive to end the postseason by shutting the door every game and every series.

    And I hope the Finals goes 6 games - it'll just be fun to watch then. Hopefully the Cavs can pull some of that GS-Dallas kryptonite out of their ass against the Spurs :) .

    Being from Akron, Id really like to see the cavs win this one. Its been cool as hell watching Lebron develop an amazing player over the years. In 7th grade he was at the same basketball camp i went to. Every season my school played his team atleast twice... and got our ass handed to us. If the cavs can somehow pull this off, he will have the whole damn city eating out of his hand.
