The San Antonio Spurs have had a dominant series so far against the Portland Trail Blazers in the NBA playoffs, and one graphic in particular indicates just how well they've been playing.

The graphic above shows the amount of time each team has led through the first three games of the series, and as you can see, it's not even close. The Spurs have held the advantage for over 134 minutes, while the Trail Blazers have led for just 33 seconds.

Fast starts have been the biggest reason for the Spurs' dominance through the first three games. According to the graphic below, the Spurs have scored at least 60 points in the first half of each contest, leading by at least 19 points through 24 minutes.

With Game 4 set to be played on Monday, it looks like the Spurs have a very good chance of sweeping and advancing once again to the Western Conference Finals.
