Who are you scared of, migs?

The Clippers?



My wife, if she ever turns on me, would try to clean me out :wink: :mrgreen:

Seriously, noone really. I don't expect the team to win in the 1st round and to be honest, I'm so happy just making the playoffs. The team looks somewhat set to be a playoff one for a few years at least and that's something we've never had here since the 1970s. I just want the team to give it a good shot at whoever they meet and not get swept.

That's not to say I don't think the team can win in the 1st round, the players are here to do that, but I just want improvement next season, as the young players like Curry, Klay and Barnes get experience.

In saying that, I want Memphis, especially with MGasol not being 100% right now. I think we can outgun them and defend and rebound enough to have a chance to beat them.

Denver is looking like the best of the three right now for sure, but we matchup weill with them.

Wonder if the Warriors were sticking it to the Lakers by losing to the Jazz last night. It was a very sloppy game. The Jazz will play the Wolves twice along with OKC and Memphis. It all becomes positioning. OKC doesn't have that much to gain and neither do the Grizzlies, who have both clinched a playoff spot. I can see Utah going 3 and 1 to finish the season and the Lakers going 3-2.

Eh..still think the Warriors wanted this game (just to get it over with). Crowd would've gone crazy if we had won this game!

I agree. There was a play that mad me think we really wanted it. Jack like did a jump and span after a Jazz player through the ball in. Tried to get to the basket and we turned it over.

I never thought we weren't trying this game.

This might upset some of you guys but as a basketball fan, I'd rather see the Lakers in the playoffs vs Spurs or Thunder rather than the Jazz. I think the Lakers playing against either of those teams would be intriguing.

I'm still worried about the Lakers. We play OKC tomorrow. If we lose and then Lakers beat us the next day, they'll be within 2 games of us and we still have to play the Spurs. It would be a real big upset if the Lakers moved above us.
