The Pelicans could advance to the Western Conference Finals? Say it ain't so...

It's so...

do we really think they will win 4 against the warriors?  I am not yet convinced...

Same, but starting to wonder if they can't be competitive.

Portland should be embarrassed.
Danny Ainge got fleeced.

The Warriors sans Curry did seem to have difficulties putting the Kawhi-less Spurs away in Game 2 and are still hanging around in Game 3.

I think a playoff Rondo, Jrue Holiday, Nikola Mirotic, and Anthony Davis could give Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, and Andre Iguodala a lot of trouble.

Did Mirotic play in the 4th?

Idk if Gentry should've pulled all of his starters so soon.
Danny Ainge got fleeced.

Sheesh, Jordan Crawford is a terrible player. It's amazing what Brad was able to do with him when he was here.

Interesting stat from this clip: since last year's playoffs, road teams are 6-37 in the postseason, with Rondo accounting for four of the six victories, and no losses, it should be added, L M F A O ;D -

a 24 point come back in less than 3 minutes would be unheard-of....

At the time there was 6 mins left and Jordan Crawford kept jacking up 3s.

I think teams leading a series 3-0 advances to the next round 100% of the time.

I think that would work, play big and play Mirotic on Draymond and Okafor on Zaza.

If Curry isn't playing, I expect it will be a close series.

This is exactly how I'd attack it. Put Jrue and Playoff Rondo are both good defenders, Draymond isn't really an offensive threat in terms of getting his own, and Zaza is just there to hurt people.

Go NOP!
