Let’s not act like most of you morons weren’t ‚predicting‘ wolves to make it 7 games, just to say that they are awful later on. Same with predicting jazz here lmao.

I think Rockets win in 5.

How was the RS series between the two teams? Didn't Houston sweep?

OKC beat them 3-1. Clippers beat them 3-1 last year.

i think as long as paul does a decent job on mitchell, the jazz are screwed. There's no way you can rely on Crowder or Ingles to be primary scorers. It doesnt even matter imo if harden/cp3 have their share of bad games because I predict the role players will shoot better from 3 this series. Rockets in 5. Could maybe go 6.

Would think it's fairly significant as fast as they ruled him out last night. Sucks when you have to hope for guys not to play.

Give up your shtick.

No Jazz player would call you their fan, btw.

I really want to see a Sixers vs Jazz Finals series.

Hopefully my boy Spida won't disappoint.

Utah in 7.

Other than Ricky and Exum I am their fan though. I have to like everybody and everything the franchise does? It's a franchise I watched get Stockton and Malone handed to them in consecutive drafts and have nothing to show for it. Now they have a similar opportunity with Gobert and Mitchell and I'm supposed to be happy if they throw that away too? **** that!

Rockets actually have people that can give Mitchell fits. He struggled every game against Houston. If Luc comes back early, it's going to be hard on the Jazz since they don't have the offense to compete. Unless Chris or James shit the bed, this should be Houston's.

If the Jazz limit the Rockets' three point barrage, and make them drive into the waiting arms of the Stifle Tower in Gobert, and Mitchell continues to produce at 29 ppg on good percentage, Rubio comes back sooner than later, Ingles pisses somebody off every game, they can steal the series.

But the Rockets have too much firepower, plain and simple. As long Harden doesn't yo-yo too much between great performances and shits the bed (44 points on 15-26 shooting in game one vs a lousy 12 points on 2-18 FG in game 2), Paul doesn't wear down, Capela neutralizes Gobert (he averaged 15 and 14 against the Timberwolves), Gordon breaks out of his slump (.344 FG%), they'll win.

Houston in 6

Mitchell had 38 in the last game and they barely cracked 90?

Houston in 6, at worst.
