    You're jumping the gun on the matchups. Still two weeks of regular season and around 7 games for each team yet to play.
    Denver can still overtake Portland for the last spot. And positions 5,6,7 between Clippers, Thunder and Memphis can end up in many different combinations. Only top 4 home court seeds are pretty much locked in. As for the Eastern conference other than the top 4 teams being guaranteed of home court nothing is set in stone. They can finish anywhere from 1 to 4. Atlanta and Milwaukee can either finish 5 or 6. And the last two playoff spots is between around 5 teams.

    My first round predictions:

    Celtics in 7
    Cavaliers in 5
    Wizards in 7
    Raptors in 6

    Warriors in 5
    Spurs in 5
    Rockets in 6
    Clippers in 6

    My odds to win the NBA title:

    Warriors 55%
    Cavaliers 35%
    Spurs. 7%
    Clippers. 3%
    Everyone else 0%

    The first two are the obvious heavy favorites. I don't trust the Spurs to go all the way because they still have to prove that they can make a run like that without Duncan. I give the Clippers a minimal chance with the outside chance that they put everything together and maximize their talent. No chance for the number one seed Celtics who remind me of a fake regular season team much like the 60 win Hawks from a couple of years ago. Washington, Toronto and Houston are solid teams but not championship caliber in my opinion.

    I really wouldn't count out the Hawks or Thunder. Both teams have great point guard play and are built for the postseason. The Hawks finally have the dominant big man and a potential replacement for DeMarre Carroll, and the Thunder are a complete team that is flat out stacked.

    Haha, Bucks schools Raptors. Actually they swept them. Why to go Casey...The team which can't move the ball can't play BB. I don't understand how they went to conference finals last season...They are stacked, but so stupid, with one stupid coach Casey....Giannis is a force in NBA.

    Stephenson really feels at home with the Pacers. After seasons of bouncing around and not fitting in, his return to Indiana experiment is showing success. In retrospect, Stephenson had no issues with George back then when they had to blow up the quintet. It was with Hibbert.

    To me the X-factor in that series is Tony Snell. We already know he can defend but if he can shoot the three well and score in the way he's capable of it forces Toronto to guard him and can get not just DeRozan but others into foul trouble when you consider how strong he takes it to the hoop. It just adds another dimension to Milwaukee.

    I thought he was a perfect fit in Memphis but you can't pass up the opportunity to sign a guy like Parsons if you're the Grizzlies. Pacers have clearly missed everything he brings to a team.

    There are few things in the NBA that give me more pleasure than watching that mean spirited prick Popovich lose.

    I don't think you'll get much pleasure in the first round.

    I fell sorry for Chris Paul being stuck with Clippers. Portland last year and now Jazz are promising to repeat it. Few years ago I made a bet that Griffin is the type of player that never win championship as a centerpiece. By now I am getting more and more assured about that with every season.

    It took Blake how many years to get any kind of game past dunking? Like it's a joke. He's the reason they haven't gotten anywhere yet (well him and Austin Rivers, who is just an overrated joke of a player) and nobody ever really blames him. If he ever grows up and holds himself accountable though I think they can get far in the playoffs. I give him credit for finally starting to live up to the hype offensively this year but he should've dominated this game with Gobert out. DeAndre too but I mean he's always had his role. Still, I can't blame them too much for this one. The Jazz just had multiple players step up. The Clippers rely too much on the same players and have a fairly weak bench because of it.

    And man how about that Grizzlies game? Dear Lord that got ugly quickly! Memphis just couldn't even breathe with the Spurs' pressure D, and San Antonio flat out couldn't miss! They were throwing up prayers and sinking them, time after time. It was crazy.

    @CHBB couldn't agree more on Blake

    Chicago with an upset in Boston. For some reason I don't trust Boston this year and when Miami had that chance to get the 8th seed, for some reason even if they were 0-4 against Boston I kind of thought it could be close.

    GS as expected.

    It's amazing how some established league's stars or good players struggle once playoffs starts. First game between Rockets and OKC kinda showed to me who is real MVP. Russ was taking many stupid shots and Harden was smooth and smart as always. I think overall Harden just has higher BB IQ than Russ.

    I wouldn't say that. If you watch Harden's moves, a lot of them would be incredibly stupid to try if he wasn't 6'7". His wiry frame allows him to slip in between defenders and get to the hoop unless you specifically cut off his angles, which is damn near impossible. Westbrook on the other hand has a somewhat wide, very solid 6'3" frame and has to be a lot more intelligent and creative and/or strong going to the hoop. Beverly was particularly excellent defensively but I fully expect Russ to adapt and come out with something to prove in Game 2.

    Chicago didn't surprise me because they finally sat Rondo for large stretches and gave Butler and Portis the chance to do what makes them great.

    I agree. I would take Harden over Westbrook. He's only 2 inches taller than Westbrook but way more versatile. He can play the 1,2 or 3 and has a better outside shot. As the lead dog on his team he took Houston to the conference final a couple of years ago. Honestly I can't see Westbrook in that role ever doing that. Harden obviously isn't the freak athlete that Russ is but even after all these years Westbrook still plays a little too out of control for my taste.

    Asking a lot of Paul George who has been great to make this a competitive series. He has to match or outplay LeBron and has nothing on his team even resembling the abilities of Kyrie and Love. In fact I don't think there's another above average NBA player on his team. As the series shifts to Indiana I expect his mediocre teammates to step up and get a game at home. Average players always look a lot better at home and Indiana had a very good home record as opposed to a dismal road record this year.

    I'm beginning to think that San Antonio's defense is more than good. I mean they have size but Gasol and Aldridge are not great defenders yet Memphis can't get to the hoop when in set offense at all. It's starting to remind me of the way Boston hacked their way to a title in 2008.

    Only seen the highlights, but I feel for Stephenson. Don't know what exactly did he expect against Love though.
    I don't believe basketball is about stars though and imo average players with good philosophy and chemistry alng with the right attitude can trap a team filled with superstars. Indiana not giving up these two games is imo a good example. Let's see if they're able to win at home, I'll try to catch the game live and hopefully my boss won't kill me the next day.
