Damn soft Gasol.....can't wait until we can trade him....the threads alone about who we can trade him for are exciting....... :man12: :man10:

If we're able to sweep the Nuggets without Artest that means we're doing something right. Don't risk losing a series just so we can waste time.

Their track meet style, the altitude & a fired-up home crowd will be a tough combo. Splitting these next 2 to set up a series win in 5 games is ideal.

Every time you want to unload on CL about how terrible our Ownership/Front Office is, I want you to step back, take a deep breath and read THIS.

This. I'm thinking they drop the 1st one (like someone said they're 1-6 in these situations) and then they win game 4 close. This sets up game 5 which will be a solid win.

2-6 my friend ... we swept Denver in 08 and Jazz in 2010.

Didn't matter though as the way we performed on the road under pressure has been IMPRESSIVE.

With the opportunity to close out the series on the road : 8-1 ( only loss at Houston Game 6 in 2009)

The few times ( 4 out of 12) we failed to go up 2-0 with HCA ( series tied 1-1) , we were 4-0 on Game 3 on the road ( Houston and Denver in 09, Celtpricks in 2010, NOH in 2011)

We're not going to sweep them. They will likely win one game in Denver. Which means we'll definitely have Metta for one game in OKC.

Ridiculous question, you don't lose games on purpose ever, especially in the playoffs, and second I'm convinced you just make threads to get attention/a reaction from the board.

^ Tanking a game in the playoffs? :man3:


This is immediately what I thought of when I read the OP's post

I wouldn't count out the sweep just yet, it's still very much a possibility.

We lose MWP at MAX for two games in the next series.

If we play OKC....we are more then capable of taking 1 out 2 on the road. Look at what Dallas has done, a few clutch shots away from stealing TWO games. We can get 1 out of 2 without MWP. And splitting the first two away games in a series in the playoffs is what you aim to do.

If we play Dallas....we can survive two games without MWP.

Don't forget the longer this series ( and OKC Dallas one) lasts , the more probable there will be a back 2 back in the 2nd round ... Not sure how the league will decide on this matter
