Pulling for? Rockets (duh), but if we get knocked out, Spurs, Clippers, Toronto

Expecting:

GS/Clippers/Spurs vs Cleveland/Atlanta

Curry is ridiculous.

Rockets are a serious contender though. I just dont know how they'll do in the playoffs with their current line-up. We know Harden can take the pressure, just not sure about some others. Smith, Brewer, Ariza, Terry seem to be cool about it. I guess its Dwight that worries me

HARDEN can take the pressure?

Last three playoffs he has been a no show...

Actually, yeah, historically, I cant argue with that.

I guess im hoping this year, his reg season will translate to the post season.

I have a feeling it will.

I hate the rockets due to some friends and a long story. So i have a bet for 1st round exit on them ! The rockets are a legit team, but harden literally has them on his back and i don't see howard helping much honestly.

I don't like the cavs getting to conference finals but i agree ... clev / atl

the east now that is going to be interesting ... i am fine with the warriors winning it though, but the spurs aren't going down easy. i dont see the clippers making it to the conference finals

I'm a huge Rocket Fan, but with two 37 year old point Guards, going into the Play-offs, against Guards, like Curry, Lillard, CP3, even Parker, Rockets will be struggling to get past the 1st round, much less winning any Championship!

My prediction for the East...Atl. or Cavs.
For the West...GS or Spurs

The rockets have a chance. Whats unknown is how this group will perform past a point.

Last nights game 4 vs mavs, is why any realistic/non-blind fan isnt putting their house on the line just yet.

The rockets will win the series with the mavs, but if the spurs beat out LAC, the rockets CANT "relax" like they did tonight.

The western conference is such a gauntlet this year, imo it all boils down to the psychology of each team.

The Rockets slacked off on defense last night after the Howard - Harris tech foul thing. This has a been a "rough" played series and the coach starts whining like a little to the tune of $25k fine.

Hacka-Howard and the rushed 3-pt shots instead of taking it to the open paint they were slicing through in the 1st period lost them the game. Live and die by the 3-pt shot ... well we know what happened. I hope they see where it got them and let it be the only time or it will be a short lived playoff run for the Rockets.

4-1 Rockets take series play San Antonio. East ATL or Cleveland

I think Ariza is the worst wannabe 3pt shooter in the NBA

I think we'll run thru the Clippers - especially with Paul being a big question mark.
