    Default 2015 NBA Playoffs: (2) Houston vs. (3) LA Clippers

    Probably the most entertaining series of round 2. The clippers have no answer for Harden, but the Rockets have no good defensive option for Paul or Griffin. IMO it really falls on Dwight Howard to even the odds. I think the Clippers want it a little more than Houston does at this point.

    prediction: in 6

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Go Clippers. Houston reminds me of the USSR. Big and boring. The sooner Harden and Howard are out of the playoffs the better.

    The Clippers have won 2 game 7s in a row. I know they lost to the Thunder last year, but I just want to reiterate, the damn CLIPPERS have won two game 7s in a row. AND they mighta just ended the Spurs. the CLIPPERS. look at that in all caps, it doesn't even really look like a real word.

    Clippers in 7. They showed me a toughness in the first round that I didn't know they possessed.

    Flop fest, I hope both lose.

    I think it is possible the Clips are a little tired and/or will have a let down from the Spurs series.

    Rockets in 6...I think the CP3 injury is a huge deal at least for the first 2 games possibly, they may lose both games and dig themselves a hole that I don't think they can get out of. Dwight Howard secretly has looked like his old self in the last series and Harden is unstoppable.

    Hope the Clips win but that is a rough first round to be coming off with. I'll say Clips in 6 though

    Rockets in 6 because of CP3's hamstring injury and he may not even be able to play Game 1.

    Regardless I hope the winner of this series lose to the GSW/Memphis winner.

    Chris Paul out for Game 1. That's why I picked the Rockets. Clippers have 6 players, and their best one is hurt.

    Austin Rivers is about to start a playoff game. Let's all just let that sink in for a moment.

    Maybe Chris Paul should have finished higher in the MVP voting. Or maybe Austin Rivers/Lester Hudson are just that bad.

    ...I would be contemplating jumping out of a window after all the missed free throws. Mahinmi drives me nuts as it is and he barely plays in comparison.

    I'll try to finish. We need a player like Deandre at center. He is an elite defender, plus he can rebound and finish. Ben Wallace 2.0. Bird should throw the bank at him
    If turner beats out hill and mahinmi in camp then fine, but odds of that happening are slim.

    He can dunk and rebound and block shots...Clippers aren't a good defensive team. I'd avoid throwing max money at him at all.

    He is terrific. I thought he was overrated during his first few seasons, but he has for sure made me look like an idiot.
