I remember watching the first game of San Antonio-Memphis last month when the Spurs were absolutely annihilating them, and Hubie Brown said something to the effect of “Memphis fans, you have to remember this is only one game, the series is not over.” And I thought it was over and Hubie was spouting a cliche, because it was just complete domination. But it turned out he was right. I thought back on that after the first game of this series, and decided not to count the Spurs out any more than if they’d lost Game 1 on a fluke. If a team looks like they’re going to get pulverized because of what happens in the first game, always remember — What Would Hubie Say?
