2014 NBA Playoffs San Antonio Spurs Keys To Victory: Game 7
This first round series match up with the Dallas Mavericks has proved to be more trouble than any San Antonio Spurs‘ fan could have predicted.
Many analysts and fans predicted a gentleman’s sweep of the Mavs (4-1), or even the outright sweep before this series started. From game two onwards, everyone realised how wrong they were.
Having dropped a close game six, that could have eliminated Dallas, the Spurs head back home for game seven for a winner-takes-all showdown. This ‘Texas Tussle’ will decide who advances into the second round to take on the Damian Lillard‘s Portland Trail Blazers.
If the Spurs want to win this game, and avoid the ignominy of being the only top seed to drop more than one series against an 8 seed in NBA history, there are 3 key things they must focus on.
