I know the Nuggets have seen success against OKC, but I still think OKC comes out on top with their balance and experience.

Playoffs are a different atmosphere, and Nuggets won't be able to run as much. Not to mention their road record is almost as bad as ours.

Props to you if the Nuggets make it, though. :jam2:

They're projections; we'll see how they go. Maybe I'll do the East Conference...but I care way less about those teams.

I sorta agree except I think OKC gets out of the west again, unless somehow the Clippers really get on a roll.
I don't think DEnver will be that successful, especially considering Gallo is out for the season and they've got a couple of other guys banged up.. They just don't have a go-to player or go-to plays they can count on if a game is close and they're playing half-court sets without many opportunities to run.

Dang I'd say those projections are pretty accurate....wonder if you see something in the Nuggs I don't.

I think their playing style and matchup will make life difficult for OKC....but I don't see them winning more than a game in OKC.

It could be a long series because it'll be tough for OKC to win in Denver as well. Hoping for KD playing out of his mind and putting on "one of those" playoff performances.

I also anticipated the Clips/Grizz going 7 games but unless Memphis can get some offense I don't see it happening anymore.
