In the Western Conference, the top-seeded San Antonio Spurs will be taking on the Utah Jazz in the first round of the 2012 NBA Playoffs. While the Spurs lost in the playoffs in the first round as the No. 1 seed, don’t expect a repeat this time around. In fact, expect a sweep.
The Spurs are healthy and playing great basketball. The Jazz, on the other hand, are a young team that is a couple years away from contending. They have good building blocks but they don’t have the pieces to beat the Spurs in the first round this year.
PREDICTION: Spurs in 4
