    Nuggets are playing hard and shorten the rotation to get 1 or 2 seed for a reason.
    As always, narratives are not important in my poll as to aspects of the game which do not impact narrative.
    Narratives are to reduce boringness.

    Current record as of 1pm March 19
    Nuggets 22 losses
    Rockets 26 losses

    Rockets in 6.

    Their best player is their biggest liability on defense vs. the rockets.

    Jokic is food on switches vs. CP3 and Harden.

    Plus Capela shuts him down on the offensive end.

    :cool:

    I think 4 wins should be enough.

    Gentleman's sweep, in 5 games. This year's Nuggets is easier opponent than last year's Jazz.

    Because we're the better team. What makes you think we won't?

    Agreed. I can see us splitting the first two in Denver, coming back here and winning both home games, dropping game 5 in front of a revved up Denver crowd, then coming back here and taking care of business. I just don't think Denver is all that great of a team, despite what their record says. They still have serious issues on defense, and Jokic gets cooked every time he gets switched onto Harden or CP3. Their guard play is solid, but as long as our defense stays locked in and doesn't let their 3 point shooters get free, we should be able to stop them.

    I’ll say Rockets in 6 only because Denver has HCA

    if Rockets had HCA then HOU in 5

    When we have Capela harden and Cp3 they can’t beat us. Then we added Faried, house and Austin. Our second unit will be beating them without a doubt along side Gordon.

    Jokic will be out of breath by the end of the first quarter or the mid of the quarter. He can’t keep up with our pace.

    Thunder will be 6 seed. They are playing very bad basketball now. There is a slim chance they can be 4/5 seed.
    If any of the starters or Gordon has minor injury vs physical Thunder, Nuggets can win the series.

    3 seed is not good. Thunder 6 games and Nuggets 6 games? Fatigue and minor injury could happen.

    OKC or Nugetts. Don't matter.

    Playoff games are very different than regular season ones. Though we haven't been able to win it all the last few years, the Rockets are battled tested thanks to the Worriers.

    Rockets in 5 in either series, and I'm being generous to the enemy.
