Sixers would definitely have a good chance beating this current Cavs squad, maybe not so much with a healthy Love. 100% healthy Embiid averages 30/15 against that Cavs squad.

Spurs if they end up 5th or 6th.. same goes with Cavs if they end up 5th.
Apart from Sixers, OKC is scary too, imagine this trio (Melo/PG13/Westbrook) miraculously found good chemistry then gets hot.

But to be honest I don't want to see an upset this playoffs (only in 1st round). I want those who pile up wins during the regular season get their rewards. But would love to see a lot of game 7's.

Spurs if they make it and depending on the seed.

I would go with the Sixers too, but I worry about playoff Embiid. I don't watch a crazy amount of their games but caught the games against the Thunder and in that playoff environment he was diving all over the place and damn near hurting himself doing goofy shit. Hopefully he doesn't hurt himself or expend all of his energy having some Wilt like performance.

They are flying under the radar. Itís close and I am biased but we are better than them.

Playoff Oladipo is a scary proposition, tho. Cov gonna have his hands full.

Turns out Indy fleeced the Thunder in the George trade. Franchise changing move for the better.

Tomorrow night shaping up to be a blockbuster

Celtics are in trouble if they don’t have a heathy Jaylen, Kyrie, Smart, Hayward, and Theis. Am I missing anyone?

Those injured guys could be a starting lineup and make the playoffs. Damn, the Celtics future is bright.
