it has been sooooooo long since I watched the playoffs for a reason other than rooting vehemently against lebron.
Get well, KD. :(

Lot of good matchups with potential upsets.

Nets / 76'ers - Embiid and company may get spun by the upstart Nets
Magic / Raptors - Terrence Ross is the key to this series
Celtics / Pacers - going to be a physical, gut wrenching series. These guys are going to kill each other.
Bucks / Pistons - this one is already over

Rockets / Jazz - sorry Jazz, you drew the shortest straw on the last day of the regular season
Thunder / Blazers - I don't think the Thunder could have drawn a better opponent in the 1st round. They matchup well and can outscore the Blazers, who will be missing Nurkic.
Spurs / Nuggets - best possible matchup for the Spurs. They could actually win this.
Warriors / Clippers - just like the 1-8 in the east, this is already over.

Dinwiddie Levert and Russell too much for Philly. They cant guard them. Nets only issue is defensive rebounding and Embiid. If Embiid isnt 100 percent its a wrap for Philly.

Refs clearly biased toward Philly too. Lot of non calls for the Nets. Philly shot 42 FT's to the Nets 26. And its definitely BS cause the Nets were attacking the paint all day. NBA definitely doesnt want the Nets to win.

Sixers showing their weakness; lack of outside shooting. JJ by himself isn't enough. Nets smartly sagged off Embiid and Simmons, daring both to hit perimeter shots.

As ever in the postseason, you need defenders and shooters.

Im going with Embiid, all sizzle no steak. All game anmouncers were acting like Philly was going away from him in the post when in reality he just didnt want to go down there. Ben Simmons sucks hard too. Jimmy Butler will join the list of guys looking to change teams. They ll fire Brett, resign Tobias for the max and win 30 games a season for the next 5 years. THE PROCESS!

Philly looks like theyre going to get swept. Jimmy Butler will put up big numbers the next game and then decide he doesnt give a shit. It reminds me of Abbey Road. In the end the love you make is equal to the love you take.

Toronto will win the series. Denny Green and Kawhi are too good. Gasol will play better too.

Popovich gets most career coaching wins on a typical Spurs win- let the other guy fuck up. Its pretty interesting watching all these teams miss 3s at such a high rate. People laugh at Jeff Hornaceks offense but it looks like a system that works in the playoffs, high % shots.
