    thunder are a decent shooting guard away from being serious title contenders but need to feed steven on the post because if he can be drawing help on the post you can open up the floor for your shooters.

              How are there no concerns for the Bucks? They lost Brogden and Mirotic and they haven not proven themselves in the playoffs.

                Jalen said he is not concerned about Bucks. Bucks haven't won a series in the playoffs plus they're dealing with injuries.

                  @DonKrieg95 yeah me too. I think Raptors get to the Finals this year, but it will be tough. Last year with the Bucks they went 7 games against Celtics that series came down to home court advantage because they lost all their road games in that series as too Celtics. That's why I think home court is important for the Bucks, and the fact they're not highly experienced. Plus the year Bucks coach took the Hawks to the ECF in 2015 if Wall doesn't get injured in the playoffs in that series I'm not too sure the Hawks get to the ECF.

                  Gregory Emeagwara I agree about the injuries and that anything can happen in the playoffs. Barring injuries, I actually have Toronto coming out of the east. Philly seems to have found their rhythm against Milwaukee and Boston but I don’t trust their coach. And the Bucks are definitely missing Brogdon. But I don’t think Milwaukee is as inexperienced as critics are making them out to be. With literally no head coach last playoffs, they took the Celtics to 7 games. Lopez has also been a huge pick-up for the Bucks. And now they have a head coach who has coached worse to 60 wins and an ECF appearance.

                  @DonKrieg95 yeah you're right Bucks have the best record and home court. Bucks need homecourt I know plus are well coached, but as the Bucks advance in the playoffs they will face better teams and tougher matchups. I was really aiming at Bucks injures to Brogdon they will need him especially if they face Celtics in the second round. Plus playoffs is not always about records and homecourt. Alot of it is being playoff tested and the mental part of the game too.

                  Gregory Emeagwara Bucks haven’t been the 1st seed in decades and the 8th seed is going to likely have a below-.500 record. Combine that with the fact that the Bucks were coached by one of the worst coaches in NBA history and are now coached by a former 2015 COTY. Yeah, the Bucks aren’t losing in the first round.

                Portland will be a much better matchup for the thunder because thunder beat Portland all 4 times in regular season and it could happen because Portland is 3rd seed and thunder is 7th seed so if thunder get 6th seed and Portland maintain 3rd seed then thunder is in good position for the playoffs

                        it's so ridiculous to say Steven Adams could rebound more, he gives so many rebounds to Russ boxing out for him. Any other team he'd average at least 13rpg.

                          Playoff teams are coasting right now. Non-playoff teams are playing with more energy because they are almost done and trying to end on a high note. I don't think any team in the west really cares about seeding. Does it matter if OKC faces GS in the first round? No, because any team that want to make it to the finals is gonna have to play them at some point.

                            Uh what? So its better to get swept in the 1st rd than to play in the conf finals? You do not want to face GS in the 1st rd, so to suggest that teams are coasting is dumb. The only team coasting is the Warriors, because they can barely even try and still be a 1 or 2 seed in the West

                            Toronto, GSW and Milwaukee don't have to struggle to keep winning games, they're essentially locked into their seeding or really don't care if they fall a seed or 2. Boston really doesn't care what seed they get, they just want to get to the playoffs, the only team I'm actually concerned about is OKC, they are fighting for a playoff spot and aren't doing a good job at it.

                                        Steven adams has been non-existent down the stretch. He had multiple games where he scored 2pts and he lets dam near every center in the league dominate him even if its not embid, anthony davis or karl Anthony towns. All teams have to do is let him be the stunt dummy cause u know he has no outside shot and his speed is super slow. They should have kept ibaka or enes kanter

                                            @Kamote Tops never a fan of iso ball. Warriors have all the superstars, but they distribute the rock. As much as people get on them as an all-star team, they play like a team

                                            @MSA99 My point is if Adams is truly passionate about getting that ball after an opponent missed shot then he SHOULD get it.
                                            Can't blame the other guy from wanting it more. Westbrook stealing defensive rebounds SHOULD only be an issue if it results in a turnover or he can't get it and would result in a offensive rebound of the opponent instead.

                                                Celtics are a big disappointment...but don't be surprised if they make it to the Eastern Finals. They have the talent and if they start playing together I can definitely see them winning 1st and 2nd rounds.

                                                        Why NBA??? Why did you give the toughest schedule after the ASG to my Thunder???? They were 37-20 before the ASG and they were considered as a legitimate threat. Now they're 43-31 and tied for the 6th seed. Also PG's injury messed up the chemistry and he was shooting like 30%fg in 5-6 games. Lastly....HOW ON EARTH DO YOU LOSE TO 13th SEEDED GRIZZLIES WITHOUT CONLEY BY 12???? HOW???? You better regain your rhythym and grab the 7th or 5th seed. As much as I like Adams he's overrated. A guy like Nurkic, Capela, Horford, Gobert or even Allen or DJ would be a better fit. Sam Prestie get the team some shooting for crying out loud!!! I'm so angry right now bc I'm a huge Russ/PG/OKC fan

                                                          They literally have the hardest schedule post break. There’s some inexcusably losses in there sure but people are overreacting. They’re tied for 8th and they’re one back for 5th so this will change daily till last regular season game.

                                                            Portland will be a much better matchup for the thunder because thunder beat Portland all 4 times in regular season and it could happen because Portland is 3rd seed and thunder is 7th seed so if thunder get 6th seed and Portland maintain 3rd seed then thunder is in good position for the playoffs
