Texas showdown on deck as Rockets, Spurs to meet in semifinals

It's been over 20 years since their last matchup in the playoffs, but the Houston Rockets and the San Antonio Spurs are going to dance in the second round. The Spurs finished off the Grizzlies Thursday night, setting up the Texas-sized matchup. Game 1 is Monday, May 1 in San Antonio. Like Houston's first round matchup, this series features two top MVP candidates in James Harden and Kawhi Leonard. The Spurs beat the Rockets in three of the four matchups this season, but the Rockets blew two of those games and easily could have taken three of four themselves. Point being, this series should be a good one.
