2016 NBA Playoff Discussion (The Other Teams)


Let's use this thread for all non-Hornets playoff discussion:

This is what I see so far.

I was surprised to see Toronto go down 0-1 to the Pacers in this afternoon's first game. Looks like Derozan and Lowry were ice cold from the field (a combined 8-32)

I am NOT surprised to see the Warriors abuse the Rockets in game 1 (currently up 44-27). They are completely outclassed in this matchup.

    I expect Toronto to get it together and win the series but it'll probably go 6 now, I was thinking 5 before. But they got a big playoff hump to get over so you never know....
    I so loathe the Rockets that it pleases me to see them falling apart. Pacers over the Raps doesn't shock me too much. Interested most in the Atlanta result.

    I think Boston takes that series in 6 or 7... That matchup is going to be really tight.

     

    I hate both teams equally.

    Rockets in full self-sabotage mode.

    And it's beautiful to see!

    Off topic but isn't new thread worthy and figured people would be interested in this

    I hope the Houston Rockets never win another game ever again.

     

    Fuckwads.

    Aaaand there you have it.....the tough on crime Flagrant playoff call.
    3rd consecutive game Boston has struggled with 1st half scoring. Need to make shots - their 2nd unit regular season advantage isn't going to be nearly as significant.
    The Steph ankle injury, while I personally hope it doesn't affect him at all, is the kind scenario I was thinking of when saying why we shouldn't worry about second round match ups. Injuries can change the complexion of everything.
    5 fouls in 1:55 in the third quarter, is this some coaching genius I am not aware of or shit execution gone right by the team? Somehow it's got them back into the game...
    Several players brought their flop A-games.

    Thank the lord Jon Barry won't be calling our series. More than anyone who calls NBA games, he grates on my nerves.

    Refs DEFINITELY have everything under control.
    Do the Atlanta bigs get bonus steps allowed for being the home team?
    C's really needed that one. Smart = (3) 3FGM, Hawks = (5) 3FGM. Fewest 3's made by the Hawks in over 50 games.
    Three games, two key players go down with injuries with potentially big implications. Hope we can steer clear of that situation.

    Bradley is one of the few 2-way threats they have. Losing him for an extended period would be a killer.

    I hope the Houston Rockets never win another game ever again.
     
    Fuckwads.


    Just out of curiosity what did the Rockets do to you?
    I don't like their current style of play but this sounds like real "hate".

    These Pistons look damn good on both ends

    I like how fearless DET seems in The Q. I also love that JVG is feeling it the inequity of calls although it's certainly no secret.
    Detroit isn't scared. They came to play. We have to come out with the same intensity and heart and take it to the Heat.

    I liked seeing all those 3's dropping for the Pistons in the first half. I'd love to see the Pistons drop the Cavs down 0-1 right off the bat.

    I just don't see how the Pistons can beat the Cavs and the officials for 48 minutes. It's gonna be tough battling 2 opponents.
