3 out of 4 home teams lost..in playoffs, home court doesnt mean anything
Game ones are not series wins. It takes 4. Of the 3 teams that lost, I think only 1–Denver—is in real trouble. So far.
I agree. I'm not changing my original picks, although I did have Toronto sweeping Orlando (welp), which was TOR in 4, PHI in 6, DEN in 7. Now I think Toronto in 5 (they'll definitely bounceback).
With that said, I agree that Denver I think can be in real trouble, and so could Philly.
If Embiid's actually playing with a nagging injury and continues to be limited on the court, then BKN could pull off the upset. I don't think PHI can really stop their guards, so unless Reddick and Simmons have monster games it becomes hard for them to win (as we saw yesterday). You know Russell and co. are probably going to keep feasting on PHI's guards this whole series.
