Playing fluidly and cohesively, the Spurs made the fans across the nation wonder how they managed to get the eighth seed in the punishing Western Conference. If you couldn’t catch the game, one stat should tell you how bad it was.
The Spurs' Boris Diaw had a plus-41. To the sports world, embarrassment goes by one term—blowout.
While blowouts are frustrating and let down a team's morale, there is something fascinating about them— we tend to forget them easily.
"It's kind of easy to do. Blowouts are usually the ones easy to forget. Obviously, we thought we had a solid game plan. Things didn't really work out, so we kind of scrap this one and it's back to the drawing board."
Playoff blowouts are actually quite common and not surprisingly so. When the best team in the conference plays the worst, head-to-head matches aren't generally what are expected—unless you're the Warriors. But that's a different story.
Harris brings up a valid point—and a true one.
With that being said, I wait until the day a blowout turns so ugly we all have no option but to remember it.
