When a second-seeded team faces a seventh-seeded team in the first round of the NBA Playoffs, the result is all-too-often a foregone conclusion. But in this case, when the seventh-seeded team is the five-time NBA champion San Antonio Spurs — a franchise that has missed the playoffs only four times in 43 NBA seasons and not since 1997, per Basketball Reference — all bets are off. In fact, the Spurs have been installed as slight favorites to force a Game Seven their series against the higher-seeded Denver Nuggets, when the teams meet again in San Antonio for a sixth game, with Denver leading 3-2, in a playoff matchup that will live stream on Thursday.
