    I’d be very concerned about the Lakers here with Lebron reinjuring his ankle. I just don’t think they have enough to make it out of the Western conference playoffs. They would have to run the gauntlet.

    Did he get hurt again?

  • tmarohl

    Playoffs are going to be interesting. No one is really playing good going into them.

    Yep left the game late, looks like he twisted his ankle again.

  • Play-in predictions:
    Ind over cha in a close one
    Wsh over bos in a close one- wsh is the 7 seed

    Mem over sas in a close one
    Lal over gs fairly easily, lll say by 10-15- lal remain 7th seed

    Final play-ins
    Bos over ind, tatum has to go nuclear to get them in.
    Gs over mem, curry goes video game like to get the dubs back in the postseason.

    Playoffs end up East:
    Heat vs Bucks
    Wizards vs Nets
    Hawks vs Knicks
    Celtics vs 76ers

    West:
    Trail Blazers vs Nuggets
    Lakers vs Suns
    Mavs vs Clippers
    Warriors vs Jazz

    I don’t think Lakers make it out of first round. Especially now that Lebron tweaked himself again tonight.

    Lakers could barely handle the G league Pelicans tonight. I think Steph throws up one of those 60 point kind of games up against the Lakers. It will come down to if AD has a big game for the Lakers to win. Lebron probably isn’t right for the entire playoffs after tweaking ankle again tonight, second time since he has come back. That is going to be a problem for him all playoffs.

    Optimal at FD:

    Teague 3700
    Anthony 5000
    Maxey 5600
    Russell 7500
    Durant 10400
    James 10100
    Nwora 4000
    Bjelica 3500
    Brown 5400

    So it ended at 55,200, a lot higher than I would have guessed. Swap Paul Reed for Lebron and you’re only 2.3 off the optimal with $11,100 left on the table.

    If it gets to the point where Bucks play Sixers, I would take the Bucks. I don’t think it gets that far though.
    I think Bucks beat Miami in 6
    Bucks lose to Nets in 6.
    Nets beat Sixers in 5

    I would say Bucks would sweep the Heat, but don’t want to piss you off :)

    Don’t underestimate the sour taste left by the bubble Heat on the Bucks. It is what drives Giannis.
    Also, Heat not nearly as good as they were last year. Losing Kelly O and Crowder and replacing with Oladipo who can’t play and Ariza is a downgrade.
    Jrue is the difference.

    Although I did not get to see the Bucks play against the Heat with Jimmy at all this year, because he pussed out of all three games.

  • gaelicgirl

    Warriors can beat the Jazz, especially if Conley and Mitchell are less than 100%. They just beat the Jazz and the Suns (in the course of their current 6-game win streak) with Steph being triple- and quadruple-teamed.

    We will see, there are fans this year and an actual home court advantage.

    I don’t think Warriors can beat anyone with a legit center in a 7 game series. I can see them catching lightning in a bottle and beating the Lakers in a one gamer, but I can’t see them beating the Jazz. Just feed the post every time down the court and let Rudy dunk it.

    It will be a series, unless jimmy and bam get injuried in game 1, i don’t see them sweeping us in any world maybe the

    But seriously i don’t see us being “worse” then last year. Kelly o is a addition by subtraction, dipo obv not playing is annoying but i would say we’re playing better going into the 2nd season.

    Playoff jimmy will put on the cape yet again. Middleton and brolo only worry me, kris can go nuts on us.

    But I will laugh with the “excuses” if we bounce yall 2 years in a row, the “abc stans” are gonna have to think of something.

    I will be disappointed as well if that happens, and will be the first one calling for a trade of Middleton if that happens, because he blows.
    I’m not afraid of Jimmy, I am not afraid of Bam, I am afraid of Robinson, Herro, Dragon and Nunn. The guys who can go off from three.
