    Jazz vs Suns will the the lowest rated WCF since the NBA stopped doing tape delays. I can't think of a more boring series.

    i actually disagree. they both play solid team ball on both ends, each led by real floor general types who are flanked by dynamic scoring wings. both teams have good coaches and players who know their roles and play them well. i'd watch as much as i could.

    that said, you are correct: most people are not me. also, the clippers are definitely going to the wcf (and beyond) if only to save ratings.

    i don't know if anything will save them from bkn, though.

    The basketball will be good, not talking about ratings.

    You’re in the minority with that opinion here I think but whatever floats your take.

    I’d love to see Suns Jazz WCF. Great matchup. Denver is toast and the Clippers usually clip.

    I think the Utah/Clipp may go seven. I wish Conely was playing. He really helps Utah off the ball and at PG. They really don't have another ball handler besides Mitchell with him out.

    Tennants will make the WCF. No one is beating the Nets though, even without Harden.

    The Clips have to win this game. They know that - if they don't - they are done. So, I fully expect this series to be Jazz 2, Clips 1. Should go 6 for sure.

    clips will take this one to 7 games. conley is the deciding factor. if he comes back and is healthy enough, i expect the jazz to take the series

    Is Rondo hurt? Why 2 straight DNPs after 28 minutes and 5 points in game 1?

    i know that as the dallas series went on, the mavs just started ignoring him on defense, and he didn't make them pay. guessing utah just started that way.

    also, reggie jackson's been having an out of body experience.

    With Kawhi out game 5 and possibly the rest of the series the Jazz should wrap this up quickly.

    The Jazz need to capitalize. Supposedly, Conley could go or is at least close to returning.

    And yeah, it sucks for Kawhi for sure. All these inujries can't be good for the league. They need to do something, play less games, I don't know.

    clips are done if kawhi misses the rest of the series

    really sucks to see pretty much every team banged up. who knew only having a two month offseason was a bad idea? and with this coming offseason going the same way, i expect to see the same thing happen in next year's playoffs

    Paulina's got this. He did it before, time to turn "it" on again. Hope he fails though.
