    Steve kerr already announced that Curry will most definitely not be back in time for the first round due to his MCL strain. & with only 3 games separating the current no. 3 seed (Portland) from the No. 8 seed (Utah), it's anybody's guess who the warriors will end up meeting in the first round. Given the warriors' situation, who do you think the Warriors prefer to meet & who would they want to avoid in the first round?

    I don't think the Warriors are worried about any team but themselves and their health. The only two teams with a chance of beating them are Houston (they're rolling, till when?) and Cleveland (slim chance and only because, LeBron).

    Agree with @SE20. The Warriors play based on opening up the defenses which Curry could do. The Warriors will now have to adjust their play. Given the limited time until the playoffs, it's questionable if they can adjust. Health was the main concern for the Warriors in order to repeat. Looks like the health bug has bitten them in a big way.

    GSW really needs Curry for the playoff Grind.. They just don't look dangerous nor dynamic w/o his offense..

    ^And it doesn't help that their other starters are not in top shape, too!

    Spurs & Kawhi ! What's with them right now.. ? is Quad Injury he has, really that tough to recover on ? or just Spurs way of saying we're decent & classy team but we can't beat Houston nor GSW.. so We might as well shut down a hurt Kawhi seeking super maxed money soon..

    Just watched the Cavs-Raptors game.

    That was the best game I’ve ever seen by the floor leader of the Cavs, who also happens to be the richest player in the NBA.

    Of course I’m talking about...

    i will be surprised if Kawhi will still be a Spur next season. The 76ers or the Lakers will probably land him in a trade.

    The best playoff game yesterday wasn't the Celtics-Bucks thriller in three seconds of regulation, it was that laugher of a rout by the Victor-ious Pacers over the Cav-less Lebron...

    Is it True Thompson cheated on Khloe?

    Leonard’s absence in the playoffs just showed how weak the Spursare as a team. I think he wants to leave because the Spurs front office are not signing up players that could help him. Instead they keep on signing over the hill players. Where can they go with this. The series with GSWis over.

    the Spurs were battling... at least in the first half..

    meanwhile, the Heat steal homecourt advantage from the Sixers....

    ^And that rookie Markelle Fultz had, what...? 0 points. 5 minutes? Then Ben Simmons says he could have done it on his own. Joel Embiid points out in an IG post that he's had enough baby-ing and wants to play and rip the hearts out of the Heat...

    Philly is a great young team but sometimes too much ego isn't gonna win a series...

    ^Maybe the young players of the Sixers couldn't stomach the fact that an "over the hill" Wade lit them up for 28 points, and the rest of the Heat played more efficient team ball.

    I'm not a fan of Ben Simmons and I don't think he should be ROTY even if most everyone in the league think he's a shoo-in. He's just not MVP material, really. A PG without an outside shot, really?

    ^Yup, their maturity level has to further develop if they want to contend for championships. It'll come with time...assuming they can keep the core together. The 76ers really need some adults/veteran players.

    They do not have enough fire power to defeat the Warriors

    the next question is, do the Warriors sweep? I think this will go 4-1 Warriors.

    I'm excited for Game 2 of the Cavs-Pacers game.. do the Pacers have an upset in them? I think they match up well against the Cavs & they don't look intimidated by Lebron & Co. but then again, Lebron is good for at least a monster game or 2 in this series that can easily turn the tide in favor of the Cavs. so we'll see.

    “When he wins, he says because everyone in the team makes him good. When he loses, he says he needs a better supporting cast “

    Who is he???
