    Who do you guys got?

    I got GS in 5. Who's going to guard GS' backcourt? They have ariza but who are they going to hide Harden on? I think Klay and Curry will go off. Dwights a pansy and will have little impact this series.

    The Rockets won the series against the Clippers despite giving up 100 points to them in every single game. They can't do that against the Warriors.

    Warriors in 6 games.

    Warriors in 6. Memphis was a tough opponent and they got past them, and buckled down on D. If the ewins pull this off, it would be a massive upset. I don't see that happening. I expect Curry to feast with no Patrick Beverly to get in his grill, and Klay Thompson should have a better series as well.

    Just to clarify something I've heard here before: The Warriors do not struggle against the Clippers at all. They beat them three times. But yes, the Rockets are an even better matchup for them (the Grizzlies are the worst, and they still went down in 6). GSW is honestly Houton's worst nightmare. To remember the regular season for the Rockets:

    1st game: Loss, 98-87
    2nd game: Loss, 105-93
    3rd game: Loss, 131-106
    4th game: Loss, 126-113

    I mean, The Warriors are 4-0, wining by 15.2 points on average. That's not called winning, that's called dominating. They have more potent offense, while playing much better defense. I can see Houston winning one. Somehow. Therefore, GSW in 5. I'll enjoy watching this.

    Here's how Splash Bros are doing scoring-wise against the Rockets (numbers are Curry/Klay):

    1. 34/11, shooting 46%. Klay was horrible.
    2. 20/21, shooting 48.5%.
    3. 27/27, shooting 54.5%. Klay locked Harden down.
    4. 22/27, shooting 51.5%.

    So, they can put Ariza on Klay and hope for the best. In which case, Curry and Green are going to demolish them. Or they can try to disrupt Steph with Ariza, in which case Klay is going to have one of those "37 points in two quarters" games.

    we'll see if every single one of gs's role players choke like lac's did. if they don't, this won't be close.

    but if you told me a couple weeks ago that barnes/redick/Crawford would completely implode for 4 games, I would have doubted it, too.

    Houston's been crazy lucky thus far.

    GS in 5.

    Harden has to guard someone. That someone will average 30 ppg.

    again, with Houston's luck, bogut or curry will go down in the first quarter of game 1.

    GS in 7. Tough to win 5 on 8 every game.

    I'm unsure about this one, I believe GS could sweep them but I also believe Houston could stretch it to 7. To be safe I'll go with GS in 6.

    This is going to get ugly for the Rockets, and I'm all for it. Warriors in 5.

    Dwight has no chance against Bogut and Green is no slouch either. Dude just about D'ed up Gasol and Gasol is worlds better than Dwight. I expect Harden to have at least one good game so I'll give them one. GS in 5 but hoping for a sweep.

    Don't care how they do it, I just want the Warriors to decimate the Sprockets.
