    If the Hornets make it then the Pistons and Heat should fold.

    Agreed. If Brogdon was healthy, I'd pick the Bucks, but I'm still picking a non-Warriors team to win it all.

    Since my Pistons are gonna get swept, rooting for the Raps to go deep for once #WeTheNorth #oVo #Drizzy.

    And if Toronto get eliminated then anyone but the underdogs-turned-game-changers-turned-budding-dynasty-turned-spoiled-brats known as the Warriors.

    The Pacers and Thunder are the only underdogs I like.

    Griffin getting hurt has all but derailed the Pistons season. They would have been interesting against Toronto or maybe win a game versus Philadelphia.

    But they'll be swept by Milwaukee. Especially without Griffin at 100%.

    I always find it weird when people say they don’t trust Toronto due to past series...despite the fact that Derozan was replaced with an actual clutch player and they don’t run into Lebron

    Warriors vs. Clippers - Warriors in 4
    Warriors will shift into a gear we all know they are capable off. Clippers overachieved getting into the playoffs. Hats off to Doc Rivers, but their story ends quickly.

    Nuggets vs. Spurs - Nuggets in 7
    Nuggets are just too deep from top to bottom. The Spurs and Popovich are never to be taken lightly in the playoffs, but they don't have the guns to beat Denver here unless Derozan shakes off his playoff chocker image.

    Blazers vs. Thunder - Thunder in 7
    Will be another close series. I think George will be huge for the Thunder here. I think George, Westbrook, Adams and Schröder will outperform Lillard, McCollum and Nurkic when it's all said and done.

    Rockets vs. Jazz - Rockets in 6
    Jazz are a stingy defensive side, but the Rockets are hard to stop when they are playing up to their potential. I think this will be another year the Rockets will meet the Warriors in the conference final and with their momentum could have a serious chance of de-throning the Warriors.

    Eastern Conference

    Bucks vs. Pistons - Bucks in 4
    Bucks are just too strong. Giannis will go absolutely beast mode from the get go.

    Raptors vs. Magic - Raptors in 4
    Easy peasy. Raptors might drop a game when they are up 3-0, but they'll deal with the Magic quickly.

    Sixers vs. Nets - Sixers in 5
    The Nets will steal one, but they have no depth or scoring to compete with the big four of the sixers.

    Celtics vs. Pacers - Celtics in 6
    I think the Celtics have been a huge disappointment this season, but I do feel they'll find the right gear and beat the Pacers. If they get their 2018 mojo back, they could be a serious contender to come out on top of the East, but I doubt it There's something dysfunctional going on in that team and I can't quite put my finger on it.

    no need to outperform nurkic since he won't be playing.

    i think with his injury, OKC will be the only lower to win the series.

    Not ideal situations heading into the playoffs. Embiid is by far the most important player on the Sixers and the Thunder really struggled when George's shoulder wasn't right.
