    Has any team in the west ever had an easier path to the WCF than Denver? Barely squeaking by a mediocre Spurs team and beating a flawed Blazers team seems very hollow.

Keep splash brothers in check. Only reason why GSW have a 2-1 is lead Draymond and Igudoala. Imagine if they weren’t stepping so far. We could be looking at tonight as a Rockets series clincher.
    CP3 hasn’t looked right either. I don’t know if what happened with his injury in last years playoffs is in his head or what but he doesn’t look comfortable out there and his scoring and assists numbers are way down.

    You hate the Nuggets I presume?

    Hating the Nuggets would be very random. That’s got to be the least offensive team in the league.

    I’m just commenting on how strangely easy their bracket has been and how they have slogged through it so far.

    Durant to be re-evaluated next week, Game 6 is tomorrow night and Game 7 is on Sunday. Houston needs to take advantage so there won't be a next week!

    I thought Golden State was in trouble before, but now they are in it for sure. Heard Durant was ruled out the remainder of the series which will spell the end of them. Golden State isn’t going to be able to keep pace without him on the floor. They have no depth any longer and their bench is useless with Iggy in the starting lineup.

    I would not say hate from me, but they are getting Lakers/Bulls/Celtics like treatment from the media especially ESPN, and that is annoying. There are other teams. I am a diehard Nuggets fan since when David Thompson played because my brother was a Dr. J fan and Philly and when they play on Sundays, we are glued to the TV set.

    I think he still a 76er fan and I am a Nuggets fan, but he said that when LeBron joined the Lakers the ticket prices skyrocket because when our dad go visit him in California they always go to a Laker game for the atmosphere, but the price between and the Clippers, I would be pissed on how they treat that team as a red-headed stepchild even though they are better.

    He is from one of their burbs'

    So glad the Rockets lost. Bunch of whiners who can’t put it together when it matters most. Chris Paul comes up short again.

    The bad thing, if the Nuggets win, Warriors are going to blast them. We play our worst against them for some reason.

    I don’t necessarily agree. Nuggets are one of the better defensive teams in the league. With KD or not the Nuggets can make it a series. Let’s hope they win tomorrow. I’ve become a fan of the Nuggets after living out there for a few years. Plus Gary Harris.

    Denver is very well coached. Despite a ton of youth they seem to play older and composed. Millsap is huge part of that.

    Milsap is a beast. At first I was like, why?

    He is pretty solid. The Joker has to be the Joker and Murray and Harris need to bring their A game.

    But they have to win first though.

    Agreed. This series with Portland has been awesome and weird at the same time. Tomorrow should be fun and hopefully a happy game for you.

    I would like a Portland/Denver v. Milwaukee Finals. Only because the NBA would have a stroke. Actually the stroke would be bigger if it was Denver v. Toronto.

    The laughter I had would break a world record because you are so right.
