FIRST ROUND

Utah vs San Antonio
Winner: Vote here!

Something to Remember about this matchup - NOTE: Although Utah has the 4th seed and San Antonio the 5th seed, the Spurs have Homecourt Advantage due to being voted as having the better record.


The total of votes for each team will be counted (all 4 options together) and the team with the higher total wins. Eventually, the result will be the option with the most votes (out of 4 options) of the team that has the most votes altogether.



Example:

If the option which has been voted most out of all 8 in the poll is "Memphis in 6" (20 votes), it doesn't necessarily mean that Memphis has won. If Memphis has 50 votes (Memphis in 4, 5, 6 & 7 altogether), but New Orleans has 55 votes (New Orleans in 4, 5, 6 & 7 altogether), New Orleans is the winner, although it didn't have the most votes in any of its 4 single options. The option with the most votes of the winner (New Orleans) is the final result.

Let's say:
Memphis in 4 = 10 votes
Memphis in 5 = 5 votes
Memphis in 6 = 20 votes
Memphis in 7 = 15 votes
Total = 50 votes

Now lets say New Orleans has
New Orleans in 4 = 12
New Orleans in 5 = 13
New Orleans in 6 = 17
New Orleans in 7 = 13
Total = 55 votes
The winner would be New Orleans in 6 since they would have the most votes total overall and thus the option for them that was voted the most is New Orleans in 6 would become the final result.

San Antonio. They're not done winning championships quite yet.

I just can't see San Antonio losing. Tim Duncan will make it very tough for anyone to get into the paint. I think Manu Ginobli will be the x-factor here. If he plays good, then the Spurs will be very hard to beat.

Spurs. They have no answer for Duncan, and that is what puts them over the edge IMO.

Spurs in 6, I don't think Utah can handle this team. Duncan can tear it up down low, and Manu can slice to the rim. They can still play.

Agreed.

This was tough to decide, and if it went less than 7 games either way, I would be surprised. But liek vs. NOH last year, they'd pull it out eventually.

Spurs in 5. Spurs are the second best team in the West IMO. They have a still good Duncan, Manu at his best, a rising Tony Parker and other players that know their roles.
