I'm most intrigued by Houston. They are my dark horse to win it. They hit lots of 3's. Harden is usually a scoring machine during the regular season, but tired during the playoffs. The long break may have done him more good than any other player. I'm also interested to see how not having live fans impacts the games. The refs are gonna call the games as they see them and not let crowd noise play into it. In the past we always see the games being called differently in the playoffs. Guys are allowed to get more physical. That may not be the case this year and would definitely be a benefit for Houston and their small ball.

Raptors are gonna be a tough out for sure. They play very well together. It would be funny if they actually did beat Kwahi in the finals.
Yeah Kawhi is awesome and he was obviously a huge reason why they won the title but it wasn’t like he wasn’t working within a really strong system.
Milwaukee is going to be really tough to beat but Nick Nurse really game planned the hell out of the Bucks up last year, I really think he’s a great coach.

I will probably get roasted for this post, but here goes:

I almost always agree with Colin Cowherd, but he has went off his rocker lately in regards to Kwahi. He said that if the Clippers win, Kawhi will be vaulted to the top 5 players of all time list. Crazy talk. He is basing it off winning titles with 3 teams and being finals MVP in those three series. He was young and won the Championship MVP with the Spurs. He had a great series, but he wasn't even the best player on that team. He hit a super lucky shot in the Eastern playoffs and then had yet another lucky break to play the Warriors backups during the championship when they were all injured.

He has never won an regular season MVP
He's not in the top 250 in scoring in league history
Doesn't make his teammates better (average 2.7 assists for his career)

Great talent and great player. Top 5 in history, get the fuck out of here.

Cowherd just says stuff to noticed. When he says something intelligent, it's almost always an accident.

Teams refused to play today due to the latest police shooting. The bubble was fun while it lasted, but it may be over now. Rumor has it that many players are considering leaving the bubble and ending the season.

i was super into it as well. I’m hoping they just take today off and get back to it tomorrow. I’ve been without sports long enough and we may not have college football either. Damn this virus and damn this racism.

The teams who aren't playing should be handed losses. It's not a protest if you don't give anything up.
