Lakers in 6, but the key for the Lakers will be Defense. If they can hold the Thuggets to their averages and not let them go off, they can put them away

I'll go with the upset. Lakers won't shoot the 3 like they did against Houston. The Nuggets already took down a top heavy team in the Clippers, and they can do it again. Nuggets in 6.

Do you think the long series favored the Nuggets because they're much younger than the Clippers, or it's just the Clippers choking? I don't think I've ever seen Kawhi miss so many shots.

A little from column A, a little from column B.

This playoffs we knew would be weird.

Based on the playoffs so far, one of two things are gonna happen

The Lakers lose game 1 but win the series in 5 games

or

The Nuggets win a 7 game series after falling down 3-1.

There are no other options. This is the way

Assuming the Warriors don't use their picks to trade for a star player, would you trade the #2 pick for MPJ? A big player with his skills, including the 3 pt shooting and ball handling, is pretty much gold in today's NBA. And he's showed some nice defense in this series. Would the Nuggets even take that deal? MPJ might've been a #1 pick if he didn't have the injury questions about his back going into the draft.

I guess the Nuggets are like the mile runner that lets others get out ahead before he unleashes the finishing kick.

Why would the Nuggets.do that for #2 in this lame draft?

They are hitting their stride, MPJ is part of it. Draft picks they don't need

Yeah, I'm thinking they don't do it, unless they really love Ball, Wiseman, or Edwards if the Wolves don't pick him.

Nuggets in 4

Not possible.

The Nuggets don’t start trying until they lose 3 games.

Same thing I've been posting for the other 2 series...Lakers in 6. They likely lose game 1.
