    love these, thx.

    What I realized this morning about the Cousins' injury is that makes it a similar matchup to last year, which will allow the take that we would have won without Paul to get stronger -- no Cousins' chemistry excuse.

    or...you have to say that Harden's improvement over last season MVP performance was the difference, which will allow the Harden is true MVP take to rise.

    Which one!

    It will be that curry and Durant are tired . How are they supposed to win with only an aging igoudala on the bench ? 4 all-stars isn't enough

    Another terrific podcast, @Clutch, from both you and your excellent guest, MK Bower. I particularly enjoyed the takes you both had on what you describe as the bad luck of the Jazz to end up playing Houston in the first round, likely the worst opponent one of the outstanding defensive teams during the regular season could draw, and the unexpected struggles higher seeded teams like the Sixers and Oakland have been having.

    I didn't catch what you two said about game 3 at the end, but I hope you're able to get MK again on the next podcast!

    I think Cousins being out is beneficial for the Rockets, he's another guy who can create his own shot and has range.

    no, cousins's injury simply makes the warriors a better team. They were slowed down by Cousins both offensively and defensively.

    This is a trick question.

    With Boogie, they have one potent option more but they play a slower half court game.

    Without Boogie, they play faster and Looney turns it on, Bogut also gets extended minutes.

    Their big rotation is not as deep.

    Disagree. Cousins has always been a hard matchup, a semi healthy Cousins bulldozed through the rockets the last time when we faced the warriors.

    I doubt Bogut would get many minutes, the Warriors would just shorten their lineup.
