    Alright, so... the Nuggets are a nice team, very likeable. Hard to hate on them. Can't wait to see what happens on Friday. Let's go!

    I’m actually more concerned to play the Nuggets than I would have to play the Clippers. They have an AD type that also plays almost PG in Jokic, and that arrogant like punk Murray who continues to get better and better, honestly their entire starting lineup is rock solid. They make a lot of threes too, they’re like Houston if they actually played bigs too. I also don’t like that fool Plumlee and his wild antics, he’s a recipe for an injury to one of our key players. All that said I still think we win, but it’s going to be a tough series, Nuggets always play us hard.

    I think we should win, but they should be able to take 2. Jokic will likely have better numbers than AD overall, since he is their play maker.

    Bron won't let us lose now though... he can smell this trophy already.

    The last time the team I rooted hard for because I thought they’d be an easier matchup was hoping Detroit would beat Indy in 04. Oops

    Jock itch, Furby and co are better than Houston. They're good really good. Gotta have our A game. I do like our chances.

    At any rate they're fearless and well coached. But so are we.

    No predictions from my end since I'm really bad at that. It should be a fun series.

    Denver is pretty tough, would've actually preferred to play the Clippers. Still think we win, but the Nuggets have a lot of fight so I think they get at least 2.

    The Nuggets proved that they’re the second best team in the West. This is going to be a tough series. I trust Bron and AD to lead us to victory. Hopefully we’ve been watching and it should already be abundantly clear that we need to take Denver very seriously.

    Denver is definitely tough.

    I feel like LeBron and AD are ultimately still the best two players on the floor. I also like the defense we are playing heading into this matchup. We’ve dealt with the best scorers in the league in the first two rounds.

    LeBron wants this bad. I’m sure he’s even more pumped now that his rivals for the crown are all gone. The chance to knock out the team that sent Kawhi packing will be motivation for him.

    I think we ultimately knock them out in 6.

    Must contain Grant, Porter, and Harris. Milsap not as much. Need Kuz, Morris, and Dwight to show up and out.

    Had no idea Coach Michael Malone was the assistant coach in Cleveland. He has the book on Lebron, he better be ready for the schemes and Vogel better have counter

    I knew that Clippers will go to their annual fishing trip after second round.
    Jokic - Davis should be very entertaining.

    I'm not.

    Unlike the Clippers, Lakers have 3 players (in length) that can match up with Joker.

    Clippers had none. There's a reason the Lakers let Zubac go.

    This next series will not go 7, and Denver will not come back from a 3-1 deficit.

    Kawhi/PG combined are not LeBron, who actually has a step on your throat mentality.

    Lakers in 5, no more than 6.

    LeBron has closed 3-1 series leads 100% of the time (for 8 or 9 times I think) LBJ does not choke closeout games

    if AD.guards jokic n frustrates him like regular season we should win, jokic is basically focal pt of their O n ball movt, make Jokic realize early that hes not being guarded by Zubac/Jaymcal Green type
