    I honestly don't know which one I'd prefer.
    OKC has star power that can show up and show out at any given time.
    Utah plays tough defense and has a rookie who's playing like he's been here before.

    Thoughts?

    Let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Take care of business at Minnesota then we can talk about matchups.

    I'd rather play the thunder because I think they are highly overrated and really aren't very good. I'm confident that their "stars" will shoot them out of games. Just last night their "big 3" went 0-14 in the 4th quarter and they lost. We saw Westbrook blow a big lead last year against us shooting 4-19 in the 4th quarter.

    I'm not worried about the Jazz either though, we'll beat either of these teams.

    We can beat either team...no issues... just would rather face the Jazz because no real star power... they might win one game MAX against us.

    Jazz just based on regular season success. Just really hoping for a long series between them though.

    Come on coach, it's not like we're going to lose focus..... we're not playing.

    I take the Jazz for two reasons.

    1 - The Thunder being knocked out early doors is just funny.
    2 - They have genuine stars that can score and at their best will give us a long, hard series.

    Uh, not to go all DreamShook, but let's wait til we actually beat the T'Wolves first. Have we learned nothing from the T-Mac era?

    Donovan Mitchell is a star for sure, Looks like a young Dwyane Wade.

    Thunders?

    But it'd also be cool to see OKC go home round one, so Utah?

    I don't have a preference.

    Rockets still need to win 2 more games in the 1st round though.

    chill out.
