Washington is the 2md best team in the east. They’ll steal a couple from Cleveland in the eastern conference finals.


#142

Oh shit I forgot about Washington, yeah they can give Bron a lot of problems. Though I don’t have a lot of trust in Porter guarding Lebron.


#143

Rondo is out indefinitely with a fractured right thumb.


#144

That’s a body blow for Chicago with the way he has been playing in the post season.


#145

Cavs sweep the Pacers.


#146

Warriors sweep the Blazers.


#147

Houston defeat OKC 4-1, bar Game 1 the other 4 games were all very close and OKC actually led the ± whilst Westbrook was on the floor.


#148

He really has almost no help. That team is terrible. Houstons players are basically career journeyman as well but they have built the team to suit the way Dantoni coaches his team.


#149

Jazz beat the Clippers in 7, strange old series with the Road team victorious on 5 occasions.


#150

Didn’t expect the Rockets to blow San Antonio out of the water in the Alamo City.


#151

Raptors can’t handle the Cavs


#152

Live by the jumper die by the jumper my friend. Nobody is gonna beat Houston or any other team when they are shooting 50 3-pointers and they hit almost half of them. If they stay this hot they will beat San Antonio easily. I doubt they will stay this hot though. However the Spurs look realllllyyy old.


#153

LBJ 35 points on 16 shots, Cavs 3-0 and blowing by the Raptors.


#154

Houston 36% shooting tonight :wink:


#155

Yeah terrible offensive display by them, Harden aside.


#156

San Antonio has been the best team defending three-point shots in the regular season. Houston was going to struggle too find their points against this San Antonio side. I still hope they win in 6.


#157

Still hope who wins in 6? Houston? Popovich has a big advantage head to head against Dantoni, so I don’t expect Houston to win this series. Although Parker going down for the rest of the series might help. I’d honestly rather the Spurs and Warriors win instead of Houston. Can’t stand them they are easily the most annoying and overrated team in the league.


#158

Don’t know why anyone would want Golden State to win.


#159

The only really unlikable player on GSW is Draymond Green tbh. Yeah, Durant is a bit of a pussy that he would join the team he just lost to, and almost beat the previous season. I’m a big fan of Klay Thompson though.


#160

Draymond is putrid seriously should give away countless tech fouls a game, Durant is a legit pussy for joining them when if he didn’t bottle Game 6 himself they would have beat them last year, Steph Curry’s general smugness on the floor shits me to tears. I admit I’m a massive fan of Klay though, don’t have a bad word to say about him.
