All these teams in the East are just playing for the right to lose to the Warriors in the finals.

Let's go raptors.   I am such a huge fan hahaha

Canada number 1

Cleveland-Toronto should be a great series! Also interesting to see if Oklahoma has anything against Golden State, I thought they'd fall already against the Spurs.

I think C town pushes them to 7 games and might win.

Gotta remember Lebron took them to the brink last year with Dellavedova as his second best player!

I am rooting for Cleveland only for their fanbase...if anybody deserves a title...it's them.

IDK.

If Cleveland keeps shooting the way they have been, and stay healthy....I don't think even GS can stop them.  The Cleveland team we saw through much of the regular season is NOT the Cavs team that has shown up to the playoffs. Smiley  But I think maintaining that shooting %, especially from 3, might be tough.

AND....OKC is actually the ONE team, right now, who I think might make GS sweat a little.  With Stephs knee likely not 100%, he's going to have to play against a quick, running team with potent shooters who are going to make him (no matter who they put him on) work his wheels on defense.

I think GS wins that series, but I think it might go 7.

I think the Cavs win theirs in 5, and then gets to sit for a good while.

Which means you might have a winded GS team on very little rest facing a fresh, physical Cavs team.

I'd say, under normal circumstances, even money.  If Steph shows he's a half step slower in OKC, I'd give the cavs the edge over whoever comes out of the west.

I'll agree with you there. Nobody deserves a title in a sport more then Cleveland. They've suffered for so long in all sports.

All comes down to how healthy Steph Curry is imo. If Steph is healthy forget it. The man can win games by himself. He's ridiculous.

Big upset as KD and the Thunder take game 1 over Golden St.

Fun little debate... If you were starting a team...

Do you take Durant or Westbrook?

Could go either way... lean towards Durant.

I definitely go with Durant. Westbrook is good, but KD could be an all time great.

IF Westbrook ever developed a more consistent jumper...he'd basically be unguardable. That holds him back a little. There is nobody who can touch him in athleticism.

This series will be fun.

OKC has 2 of the 3 best players on the court on their team.  And 2 of the top 10...maybe top 5..players in the league.

Steph is amazing. He CAN take control of games by himself.  But can he do it four times when he's admittedly not 100%?

Last night....that was a kicker.  It showed you exactly what I mean.

I think Westbrook is the better all-around player, but for a guard to not be able to consistently shoot the 3 in the modern game... that's a liability nowadays.

That was an incredible comeback by OKC. GSW looked like they had them beat then went cold in the 3rd quarter.

Pretty much the opposite of the most of the reg season games. Smiley

Should GS be worried that OKC split their opening road games even though Durant and Westbrook didn't play all that well (aside from isolated spurts)?

After last nights result....I'd say yes!

Thats twice they've been blown out in 3 games.  They are one loss away from being "in serious trouble".

And after the nut shot heard round the world, there is at least the potential GS will be missing a key player next game.

I hate to use the term "must win" when we're only going into game 4, but.....it pretty much is.  If GS goes down 3-1, I think they'll have a VERY hard time winning 3 straight games. If there's one team in the NBA that could do it, it's them..but that's a tough mountain to climb.

I wouldn't hesitate to call it a must win. In fact, I say Game 4 decides the series.
