Before the game, all the talk from the commentators was about Nene’s status as the x-factor in this matchup, someone the Spurs didn’t particularly have a plan to contain. And, eh, he played pretty well, but certainly not great. Nonetheless, the first big upset of the playoff season. I’d register myself as still very confident that the Spurs will win this series. You can’t beat Denver when ‘Melo and AI both have efficient scoring nights, but the whole point is that they both do so only quite rarely. In a seven game series, it’s not a huge threat.
