Winners and Losers from 5th Week of 2013 NBA Playoffs

With the 2013 NBA playoffs down to its final four teams, the action only promises to heat up from here.

Home teams have held court through the first three games of the conference finals, but it hasn't been easy, to say the least.

In the Western Conference finals, the San Antonio Spurs know their 2-0 series lead over the Memphis Grizzlies still doesn't give them much room for comfort. It was only a year ago that the Spurs blew a 2-0 series lead over the Oklahoma City Thunder in the conference finals, after all.

Meanwhile, if Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals is any indication, we're in for a good old-fashioned slobberknocker—in the words of WWE's Jim Ross. The Indiana Pacers won't be shying away from the Miami Heat, especially after jumping out to a 2-1 series lead over the soon-to-be champions during the 2012 playoffs.

Before we get too deep into the conference finals, let's take a look back at who emerged as a clear winner and loser from the fifth week of the postseason.

Note: For the purposes of this slideshow, Week 5 spans from games played on Friday, May 17, through Wednesday, May 22. All advanced statistics come from either Basketball-Reference or, unless otherwise noted.
