Merriman 'breaks down' Spurs

Irreverent NBA analyst Charles Barkley may want to steal a few ideas for his TNT broadcast from Bills linebacker Shawne Meriman on the breakdown of the Western Conference finals series between the San Antonio Spurs and Oklahoma City Thunder. Merriman joked that he sees NFL-like schemes in the Spurs' dominant offense. San Antnoio is unbeaten in the postseason.

Does Merriman see the Spurs losing a game this postseason? "They’ll lose one. The Spurs will lose one, but I watched the game the other day and it’s like they’re running a clinic out there. There’s guys running all over the place. I think I saw some football patterns during the Spurs game. I saw one guy running the slant and one guy running a 5-yard out pattern on the other side of the basketball court. They’re shooting threes all over the place. It looks like some audibles."
