outlook on the west
I think it's crazy this year how close the teams in the west between 2-8 all are. Both in standings and capabilities of wining a series. I see no strong favorites in any of those potential matchups or any weak team in that group. Im sure many would add the lakers as well with the way they have been playing recently as well. I dont remember the conference ever being such a coin flip before in all my years of watching where the 8th seed is arguably gonna be as good as anyone. Should make for a very entertaining playoffs out west.
I think alot of people and sports people are saying that but I believe that's overrated.
The more experience and fresh team will be the one to go to round 2.
not sure who will be the freshest, everybody is playing like they are competing for a playoff spot and playing starters. As for most experienced, the thunder are the only team that arent really experinced. And you cant count out as a team with durant and westbrook, although i do think they are maybe the least likely to advance.
Who's got the easiest schedule?
I actually have the Thunder falling all the way down to 8th spot and Spurs and Blazers with 6 and 7.
