Vote: San Antonio Spurs vs. Denver Nuggets

The ultimate goal for each of the 16 teams in the NBA postseason is 16 wins a parade with a very shiny trophy. But the journey begins with a best-of-seven challenge in the first round. Will any of the favorites fall victim to overconfidence in the postseason's opening stanza? For that matter, do the seedings really tell us who the favorites are? We're asking SportsNation to break down each opening-round series.

No. 2 San Antonio vs. No. 7 Denver: This is San Antonio's reward for overcoming injuries, including Tim Duncan's, to post one of the best records in the league? The Spurs still pair a dynamic offense with padlock defense, but the Nuggets have been one of the league's hottest teams under new coach George Karl.
