Not fair to Utah. Houston are just a match made in hell for them. Any other team barring Golden State, they could beat.
it's completely fair. Jazz are overrated trash.

Pistons putting a solid fight tonight, but man without Griffin the rest of this series, MIL literally can just roll to the 2nd round with a sweep. Maybe there's one close game at Detroit, but I think MIL wins that and that's it.

Is Griffin out the rest of the series?  I thought he was day to day.  I hope he comes back, and they can steal 1 game at least.

I agree with you on this.  I wouldn't favor them in a match-up against Denver but I think they could push them hard. 

Two things the Jazz are desperately missing:

1. A P&R ball handler who can score and distribute.  Rubio is a nice player but the defense can sag off of him with no consequence.  This is a recipe for disaster against a team like Houston.  An inability to score means that your defense can't get set.
2. An elite 3&D wing player.  Utah makes the most of their team defense.  Unfortunately, you need a bit more than that when you play against James Harden and the Rockets.

Yup, seeing Toronto and Philly both go 7 would be awesome for Celtic fans.

I personally think TOR will win the rest of the games in the Magic series. Would love to be wrong but Kawhi's a beast and I'd be stunned if Lowry had another scoreless game (lol).

But the Sixers-Nets series I expect will go 7 games. I originally thought PHI in 6, but now I feel if the Nets take 1 of the next two, it could actually go 7 games. If Sixers win both the road games, then PHI probably wins in 5. I predict BKN wins tonight but loses Game 4, and basically the home teams win the next two games setting up a Game 7 clash. There already seems to be a lot of bad blood brewing between the two sides (Embiid's elbow, Dudley's comments about Simmons, etc.)

Embiid favoring that knee could end up being another Cousins situation. Sixers gotta think about shutting him down eventually. They aren't winning anything this year.

Embiid is out tonight. It would be great if the Nets can win this game.

I can't believe how quickly I have become a Nets fan.  lol...I would love it if they took the 76'ers to 7 games.  I don't even care if they win or not, just extend that series.  We need to give Smart more time to get better.
