I'm intrigued with the San Antonio-Phoenix matchup in the Western Conference finals. In my mind, Spurs-Pistons is the matchup we should've gotten last year, instead of the ugliness that would be the demise of the Lakers. Tim Duncan is a better matchup for Ben Wallace, right? So I'm pulling for the Spurs.

Yet, Duncan has a rap for lacking the killer instinct. It was symbolized in last night's game when he went up for the dunk that would have put the Spurs within a point and was stuffed by Amare Stoudemire.

I'll say this much about the Spurs: They wanted to close it out last night. But the Suns were too hot, hitting clutch shots down the stretch. They're a good team, led by the league MVP, mind you. They're not going to go away easily

Could we be watching the second comeback from 0-3 deficit in less than a year?
