NBA Playoff Schedule And Update: Spurs Dominate Again; Celtics Hope Rest Revives

It's too soon to call the 2012 San Antonio Spurs the best team ever, but what they are doing so far in the 2012 NBA Playoffs certainly has to open the conversation. They rolled over an Oklahoma City Thunder team to a 120-111 and handled every trick in the book OKC could throw at them.

San Antonio seemingly incorporated some elements of the Phoenix Suns quick attack / pick and roll offense and have become an unstoppable scoring machine. Defensively, they aren't the best in the league but they are smart and committed and get the job done. Folks, the Spurs are GOOD.
