Miami got burned.

Yeah, the fall away shot over LeBron in the 3rd was crazy. The 3's he made with Wade all over him were crazy. Curry is the best shooter in the game today and EVERYTIME he puts the ball up you feel like it can go in. That doesn't mean the guy doesn't take a few shots that typically a coach or fan will groan at. He took a few of them tonight, and it seemed most went in. Kudos to the youngster.

I don't think Miami got burned, I think LeBron choked with those missed Free Throws late. D-Wade missed a bunny at the rim after a big steal. We were in that game late but fucked it up. I was pleased with the effort. Like I said, this would be a really good Finals matchup. G.S.'s health has to stay up of course, and they need to continue buying in to Mark Jackson's defensive philosophies though.

I'd say there's 4, possibly 5 teams that could get to the WCF this year.

I don't think Portland is there yet.

Hm. Didn't find it particularly funny, just came away with a renewed respect for Kyle Lowry.

I still think if the Spurs & Thunder are the 1 & 2 seeds, that barring major injury they will be in the WCF.

Clippers and Houston have a shot I think, and possibly GS but I'd say that's an outside shot. I think Portland will learn a lot, gain experience but will lose in the first or second round.

I don't think Houston will do anything of note. They're not well coached, they live & die by the three and they play mediocre defense.

With the Clippers it all depends on if Blake & DeAndre will finally show up in the playoffs.

I agree with you on Portland. I just think they're too inexperienced to make any real noise in the playoffs. Their coach has never won a playoff series as a HC and four of their five starters have never won a playoff series. They're also a bad defensive team that relies a lot on the 3's.

If I had to rank the West in terms of making it to the WCF.

- Spurs: I think OKC is the better team but I'm not gambling on Westbrook's health.
- OKC: See above.
- GSW: Not close to the two teams above, but a hot shooting series for Steph and Klay and they've got a great shot IF Bogut is healthy (and Lee isn't )
- Portland: I could see them getting past the Spurs because they're basically built to take them out, but an elite perimeter defense will slow them down quick. As much as they continue to win I still see them as a supercharged Knicks of last year.
- Clippers: No depth up front, Blake and Jordan haven't grown enough and teams will get into the paint at will.
- Rockets: A good defense will pick them apart in the playoffs. Too much ISO/3 ball/FT.

I think Houston is going to get better as the season goes. They are battling inconsistency but that will improve. They've already beaten the Spurs twice this year. Not that that matters a whole lot but the Spurs don't lose twice to too many teams in a season.

Not saying they'll make the WCF but they have a shot.

You can talk about how bad Harden is at defence but it's not like they don't have good defenders on the team. Howard, Beverly, Garcia and Brewer are all good defenders.

I just don't see the Rockets style of play translating to success. They have a terrible coach and they live and die by the 3 ball. They've been mediocre defensively to start the season and tbh I don't really see them getting that much better defensively. I know you can point to Dwight's Orlando teams and how they lived and died by the 3 but still had some deep playoff runs but the difference between those teams and Houston is, Orlando had one of the best coaches in the league and the Magic were elite defensively. Even teams like the Warriors & Spurs right now that rely a lot on the 3-ball, they're elite defensively.

Like Punked Up said, I think the Rockets will get picked apart in the playoffs if they run into a good defensive team, which they more than likely will.
