Looks like we might face them. Nuggets I expect to fold. Wasn't mentally tough last year. Won't be so this year.

Karl and Jackson have a history going back to when the Warriors upset the Nuggets in the first round of the playoff in 2013 I think.

Nuggets had won 57 games and were heavily favored in the #3 vs. #6 matchup.

After that playoff series was when Igudala said that Karl had told the Nuggets players to rough up Curry.

So it looks like the Bucks and Magic are boycotting their game today. What happens if all the teams start boycotting?

kindaaaaaaa want utah more.

i'm more afraid of the damage jokic will do, and how much space he'll generate by often pulling zubac out of the paint.

with gobert it'll be a lot more straight up and i think that benefits us.

His numbers may be good but he's only gotten past the second round once in his career.

If he'd gotten out of the second round a couple of times with the Clippers, he may still be with them.

Only if players on their own won series' and not the team as a whole, only if....

Well IIRC he played very well for the Clippers in the playoffs. Just that he got injured or there were other injuries on the team.

That Houston series probably was pivotal. Should have won that and at least get to the WCF.

80-78? What kind of scorebord is that. Did they play only 3 quarters? :lol:

Next time I want to complain about Doc Rivers, I'll think to myself... At least the Clippers don't have Billy Donovan :lol:

I tried to tell MTV and co that budenholzer is a fraud. This might be the third number seeded that has been bounced by a lower seed. This one will be the worst one of all because it's the fifth seed.

I'm torn between enjoying Laker tears and wanting them to win so we can knock them out.

Lebron vs Kawhi is the closest thing we'll get to LeBron vs Kobe(or mj) that we were supposed to get years ago, but lebron was bounced by the magic.

I hope history doesn't repeat itself and the lakers get bounced out early. The houston rockets don't care about anyone other than AD or LeBron. They are content with guys taking jumpers.

Donovan's obsession with playing a clearly ineffective Steven Adams was very Doc-esque.

That's all I'd care about too. Try to stop AD and Bron. Let everyone else shoot all day.
AD is soft. Pj tucker could very well physically dominate him unless AD grows a pair.

I've never been afraid of AD either. Give him his numbers and pick up the W.
