    Let's face it, the brave man. Which seed do you like the most if you have only 2 seed or 4 seed option.

    The optimist doesn't mind either team in the standings. But the realist wants Denver to lose to 5th seed because of injury. It is possible that Both Lakers and Clippers refuse to fall in the standing.

    George and Beverley are ready to play.......

    In this hypothetical obviously the 2nd seed if only due to homecourt and likely easier first round opponent.

    Although I think at full strength the Clippers match up better with the Rockets than the Lakers. But at this point it seems 50/50 whether George will be fully healthy

    not sure how this is even a question.
    the 2 seed has HCA through 2 rounds.
    Only one #4 seed has ever won a ring - the 1969 Celtics

    My preference:

    #2 Rockets face #3 Clippers and win in 5 games

    #1 Lakers face #4 Jazz and BOTH lose in 4 games

    My real answer: "I love the 2nd seed. Statistically, the 4th seed means no championship."

    chance to beat Lakers 60%

    Clippers without George would be a no brainer. Having said that both teams are better than us anyway barring any surprising chemistry between Westbrook and Harden.

    Rockets are cooked no matter what. Might as well enjoy the moral victories until the first round before getting eliminated!
