    This projection looks like we have a good chance of playing Utah in round 1.

    Small ball works. It has worked in the past and it will work in the future, right?!

    Tilman has reduced his expectation from ring to win the west.

    My expectation is only to kill the healthy Clippers.

    Should’ve kept Chris Paul and used Capela + 4 picks to improve the roster.

    Good god they would be far better off.

    Paul has missed one game this season. He has 2 years contract remaining,
    expiring contract +2 picks =a superstar

    Many teams love Paul and 4 picks.

    Tilman is delusional if he thinks we can win the west. lol. He needs to aim no more than first round the way it is going atm.

    Not sure if seeding is really important now. o_O

    We just play our best, if it's not enough, we'll deal with it in the off season.

    The Nuggets have missed another superstar for years now.

    They probably wait until there is no superstar left other than their Joker.

    Guess it’s inconceivable that we could drop down to 7/8 but frankly this team isn’t good enough to win a series against any of the top 4 seeds imo w/Harden playing so poorly, unless Russ is super human as well and we will see a lot more clogging of the lanes unless this scrub 3 point trash we roll out there somehow get it together ... no team in a 7 game series is going to let Russ have unlimited access to the basket inside with Harden and Co sucking badly from 3 on a regular basis. I would love and die by that defensive philosophy if I were playing the Rockets in a series, make them win it on the 3 ball and they likely won’t. I don’t have a great deal of faith we are winning many games even against The Jazz and Nugs in the playoffs this year despite that short wining streak we went on with small ball initially.

    Harden's 10 turnovers was just terrible. Maybe it's best that he only runs the sets that he is comfortable with.

    It's like there are too many moving parts for Harden at times!
