While the regular season just ended this past Wednesday, it’s the perfect time to look forward into the NBA playoffs. Some teams have made their way down to the final stretch and seem ready to begin the postseason while others are tripping at the finish line. For example, the Rockets who had a disappointing season after going 56-26 last season. I’m unimpressed with this team, I sort of had high expectations for the Houston team. Some of the dopest teams going to the playoffs this season are, first and foremost, the Clippers.
They are hot, hot, hot! They have won 10 of their last 11 games following Tuesday night’s victory over the Memphis Grizzlies, and they’ve won five straight since the return of power forward Blake Griffin. Coincidence? I think not. His return to the lineup is huge for Los Angeles, now locked into the fourth seed in the West. Quite as the next team is, the Hornets had the third-best home record in the East this season.
The players on this team have been on fire! Now, they would probably prefer home-court advantage in the playoffs, but as they showed out in Monday’s win at Boston, they’re capable of winning tough games on the road; not bad for a team that only won 33 games last year.
Let’s be honest, the Warriors have been hot as hell all season, so it makes no difference that they lost a games down the stretch. No matter what people are saying, we’re talking about a team that just won 73 games! If that’s not considered being hot, then what is? If you don’t agree with me, that’s fine, just know the Warriors might take it again.
Many people don’t agree, but if you’re up for the challenge we can put the money on the table.
