    Some good matchups in the west play in games for sure!

    All we heard down in Sac yesterday was how much they DIDN’T want to play the Warriors.

    I figure they are just being more aggressive going to the hoop!

    Nobody should want to play the Warriors. Certainly not one game. Probably can get them in a 7 game series but one game is a total crap shoot and the Warriors can beat anyone on any given night.

    It's almost as if there's some secret reason why the NBA wants the Lakers to win games.

    Not an entirely unreasonable position. On the other hand, if they think they're good enough to win the championship, they shouldn't care who they get in the first round. All that should matter is that they get in.

    Nah…. Don’t let anybody fool you. Every team ALWAYS wants the easiest path.

    Sure they do--but is it so important that they would risk a one-and-done game against Steph Curry? I think not.

    That is the part that makes me question this. Not sure I trust Steph and Klay and Green and Looney and Paul and Kuminga not to have a great game.

    On the other other hand, Steph goes nuclear in the 2nd play in game and LA misses the playoffs altogether.

    That was a part of the same other hand. That's exactly why I disagree with Greenberg.

    Everyone sees my posts. I'm like Dirk's fadeaway--unblockable.
