Game 5 * Tue April 28 Dallas at San Antonio TBD
Game 6 * Fri May 1 San Antonio at Dallas TBD
Game 7 * Sun May 3 Dallas at San Antonio TBD 

Playoff Gambling Trends: Both teams are probably thinking that this is good way to start the series. San Antonio used the final week of the season to figure out a way to get by without Manu Ginobili (out for the season). Dallas would be comfortable in a half-court that saves Jason Kidd’s legs. Both teams are long in the tooth and will need to be replenished next season. 

How San Antonio wins: Tim Duncan sucks it up for one last championship run, Tony Parker makes life miserable for Jason Kidd and the Spurs force the ball out of Dirk Nowitzki’s hands as much as possible.

How Dallas wins: The Mavs collapse on Duncan defensively, taking their chances that the SA perimeter is fatally injured by the loss of Ginobili. Parker has a tough time getting to the rim.

Prediction: San Antonio in 6
