    have a terrible feeling that CJ is going to dominate. I dunno if Murray can come back healthy.

    yes...if Spurs win, pick conveys. If Pels win but lose to LAC, pick conveys. If Pels win both games, Pels keep their pick and Cronin avoids interviews

    The spurs did beat Denver in Denver by 19 points without Murray.

    Everyone acts like the Pels have no chance or shouldn't win?
    They have more talent then the Spurs, imo.

    You know I went back and checked all the post in the thread and I humbly admit I was posting out my ass. You are correct and thanks for the lesson. For some reason I got the feeling that because of Pop and they won a few times there, people were favoring the Spurs.

    If the Pels beat the Clips with Norm, Roco, Paul George, Jackson, Morris, Zubac, Batum, Mann, Hartenstein, and possibly Kennard, then I am going to have a hard time believing that we lost in the trade with LA. They will be playing at home with more talent than N.O

    Yeah, I can't say that I have the Spurs as favorites but I do think they have a good chance of upsetting the Pels because of Pop and their roster filled with young talent that's hungry to have breakout performances. The Spurs also have constant movement on offense both bodies and the ball. A lot will depend on if Dejounte is fully recovered from being sick.

    I don't think it will say anything about if we did or didn't lose that trade, it's one game. The fact that the Clippers without Kawhi almost beat the Wolves with the help of 45 minutes of productive ball from the two guys we traded to them, kinda shows the value we gave up.

    I hate it, but I have to agree. Things don't just go well. That is not how the world works.

    The same logic can definitely be applied to Pelicans fans. The fact is that while the Pelicans should be a statistical favorite against the Spurs it shouldn't be by much and they should be a significant dog to the Clippers in LA. So the odds that the pick conveys are still pretty damn good.

    If the Pels win tonight, those odds drop notably. Right now they have to win two games. If the win tonight, it is a one-game-play. Anyone's guess although you'd think the Clippers would have the odds, in just one game, much can happen.

    Imagine how exciting it would be the first time a play in team won the Finals. Would be straight Cinderella shit.
