RE: 2015-2016 NBA Playoffs
Curry suffered an injury in game 2. He sat out game 3 and the Rockets go into today's game with a chance of tying it at 2-2. Curry should be back today and I suspect GSW will make it 3-1.

Meanwhile, Murat's Raps are tied 2-2 w/ Indy as they head North of the Border for game 5.

The Spurs are preparing their brooms for a sweep of the Grizz.

Step had a nasty fall on Sunday probably due to excess mositure on the court and left the game with a sprained knee.. I dont think its too serious but he will have an MRI. I hope that he will be able to sit out the rest of the series and recover.

The playoffs thus far has been a bit lackluster, IMO.

Agreed. But that ATL/BOS series is pretty good. It went to OT yesterday and now it's 2-2 going back to ATL.

After having home court for the last two years and having lost in the first round, I emotionally detached myself from Raps to avoid another disappointment this year. IF they go past the Pacers, I will jump on the bandwagon quickly. Wink

RE: 2015-2016 NBA Playoffs
All the 1st round matchups out West figured to be straightforward and they have been unless Portland can beat the Clips tonight. Out East you naturally had the Cavs winning easy. I figured Hawks-Celtics would definitely be good and that Heat-Hornets and Raps-Pacers had the potential to be good. Celtics are annoyingly decent. They are scrappy and just win ugly and I think they're going to win that series now. Heat and Raptors should advance and I think Miami will win that series.

That's really good news with Curry today. After hearing it was a sprained knee with an MRI it made me think he'd be done for the playoffs but apparently it was about the best a sprained knee could possibly be. He might only miss 2 weeks but even if it's 3 weeks he'd have a chance to play in the conference finals. They will beat the Rockets without Curry and I'd give them a shot against the Clips without him too. Against the Spurs or Thunder they'd have no chance without Curry.

^You almost want the next match-up for the Warriors to go the distance to give Curry a chance to come back. I know , not fair to the other players but still...

^ I was thinking the same thing. Clips-Blazers could go the distance too but I doubt it. I think that's over in 6 at most.

With Chris Paul's injury this changes the whole series, I think Portland in 6-7 ..I think the warriors can defeat either team now without Step

Too bad about CP3. Portland will likely win that one. GSW needs the MVP for the conf finals. I won't even mention the NBA finals because they won't get out of the West without him.

No doubt about that. Griffin's status doesn't even matter, the Clips are not close to a playoff level team without Paul and will probably lose in 6. Golden State won't need Curry at all in the next series.

Raps up the ante and take a close game 5.

Most amazing stat: Wade made more 3s in this post season (just a round and a half) than all of regular season ! WTF?

They did a superb job last night. Props to them for going into AA arena and getting it done. Too bad ATL can't be as competitive w/ the Cavs. That series looks like another sweep.

Spurs are home and that could be Duncan's last hurray, although personally I think he comes back for one more year. OKC/GSW will be a great series and I can't say w/ certainty who will win that. If Durant & Co can put up enough points, they might just pull off the upset. Let's hope your boys get the job done in Miami. I'd like to see them in the CF.

I really do not like game sevens, especially with our guys. They get too tight. If they play like the last two games tonight, they can close it out in Miami.
