Random Thoughts From The NBA Playoffs

Spurs 13 consecutive seasons with 50 winsSunday, the New York Knicks defeated the Miami Heat 89-87, in Game 4 of their first round playoff series.

The defending champion Dallas Mavericks got swept for the first time in franchise history, during a best-of-seven game series. The Oklahoma City Thunder were simply younger and faster.

The top-seeded San Antonio Spurs finished first in the West with a record of 50-16, tying the Bulls for the best record in the league.

The Spurs now hold the NBA record of 13 consecutive seasons with at least 50 wins.
