    They'll be lucky to win one game.

    They spanked Lebron in the opener. This really has been a disaster of a season for the Cavs.

    His first loss in a game 1 in round 1 ever i think.

    Celtics-Bucks was great.

    So NO sweeps the Blazers 4-0. Philly leading Miami 3-1, and Warriors leading the Spurs 3-1.

    Rest of the match-ups all seem evenly tied though at the moment. It's been a fairly competitive first round on the whole.

    Philly are going to win the East aren't they ?

    Simmons looks like he might be the man to inherit the crown from King James

    If James gets through this round, I think they'll take it still.

    The question about Philly is ... have they forced the NBA to find a way to deal with tanking? As 3-4 years of it has created a fucking fantastic young team.

    They have - isn't their some draft reform coming in next year ?

    I think it will take ages to get it right

    Harden's step back threes are incredible. He barely even fucking jumps.

    So the semis are:

    Raptors v Cavs
    Celtics v Sixers

    Warriors v Pelicans
    Rockets v Jazz

    Warriors and Rockets both 1-0 up already, and should in all likelihood meet in the WCF. That should be a lot of fun.

    Except once Curry is back, I expect the Warriors to become unstoppable again.

    Can't say who'll win from the East. The Cavs are crap, Raptors are mildly above average, Sixers too young, and Celtics lack star power.


    Should really be an easy Championship for the Warriors unless Harden & Co. come up with something special.

    The Warriors will not win this year - just think Houston match up very well with them.

    A fit Curry changes everything.

    I don't think Curry and Klay can stop Paul and Harden - as passers or shooters ... And if the Rockets are on, they are a tough tough match up for the warriors.
    I hope it goes 7
