    Warriors three-peat? I think so.

    They're an epic 3-1 lead collapse and historic LeBron James takeover away from winning 5 in a row.

    Houston was in 2 seed position midway through the 3rd quarter Nuggets game and ended up 4th.

    Denver and Portland have to be happy with each other to get to the WCF instead of GSW or Houston.

    I'm looking forward to watching the former Cyclones in the Playoffs.

    Milwaukee Bucks home court advantage through entire playoffs is one of the strangest truths in sports history.

    Going to be weird watching the Playoffs without LeBron. Wonder if he regrets leaving the East yet.

    First round:

    MIL vs. DET - Bucks in five. I can name three players for the Pistons, and it took a while to come up with the third one. Bucks cruise.

    TOR vs. ORL - Raptors in four, but good for the Magic making a playoff appearance. Feels like it's been a while for them.

    PHI vs. BKN - Sixers in six. I think Brooklyn is going to push them a little.

    BOS vs. IND - Shameless homer pick...Pacers in seven. Losing Smart for two weeks is going to really hurt Boston defensively.

    GS vs. LAC - Warriors in five. Clips are a fun team that plays really hard, so the games should be pretty entertaining.

    DEN vs. SAS - Nuggets in seven. I hate this draw for the Nuggets with their lack of postseason experience. Giving them the benefit of the doubt but this is one to keep an eye on.

    POR vs. OKC - OKC in six. Blazers are weak on the interior without Nurkic.

    HOU vs. UTA - Rockets in seven. Tricky draw for Houston. I think it goes the distance and Harden bails them out in Game 7.

    I’d honestly argue the Rockets were a Chris Paul injury from beating the Warriors in game 7 of the western conference finals last year. Warriors aren’t unbeatable. They have an amazing starting 5, but their bench could lose them a series in the end.

    The Nets and Philly got interesting. Philly is so flawed.

    Nets small ball effective, Embiid and Boban can't guard in space. Interesting series if Embiid can't play. Redick bad today.

    Playoffs have been awesome so far. I’m still amazed Ben Simmons and Kyle Lowry were all star selections.

    I know people are cheering for Monte but Denver isn’t getting through the West.

    Nobody said they would. Are you also predicting the sun comes up tomorrow?
