NBA Playoffs: Who will Spurs play in Round 2?


After eliminating the Memphis Grizzlies in the first round of the NBA Playoffs, who will the San Antonio Spurs play in the second round?

The San Antonio Spurs did as many expected them to do and finished off the Memphis Grizzlies in a four-game sweep on Sunday. The Spurs were never in any trouble in the series and only one game could even be considered close. With the four big wins, the Spurs can now get all the rest they need as they wait for the second round of the NBA Playoffs.

The Spurs as a franchise have generally done great when they get plenty of rest and this is exactly what they wanted with their first-round sweep. Looking ahead, the Spurs will now await the winner of the Oklahoma City Thunder and Dallas Mavericks.

That means that even if the Thunder finish off the Mavericks at home on Monday night, there will still be plenty of time off before their second-round series officially begins. If the Mavericks take another from the Thunder, then that means the Spurs will get even more rest.

It’s a great spot for the Spurs to be in.
