HOU over OKC in 5
SAS over MEM in 4

BOS over CHI in 5
ATL over WAS in 6
TOR over MIL in 5

feeling the milwaukee upset in my bones right now

ciderpress, Thursday, 13 April 2017 22:34 (one year ago) Permalink

just 4 kicks i checked our preseason predix thread. i think everyone had detroit and charlotte making the east offs (no one had mil or chi), and almost everyone had minn instead of mem in the west. i would have hit 4 of my 5 over/under picks.

congrats to sloth for picking the 8 west playoff teams (though he wasn't close on the seeding).

iirc i was right about rockets and jazz being real teams this year but whiffed on most of the other differences from last year

ciderpress, Thursday, 13 April 2017 22:39 (one year ago) Permalink

i guess i was also right about minn not being real, not sure what ppl were thinking there. i had nuggets and pels as the ascendant west teams, alas

ciderpress, Thursday, 13 April 2017 22:41 (one year ago) Permalink

i think my best move was calling that the wizards would be good, my worst move was thinking indiana would be good. idk where the hell i got that from.

Guess we overrated Teague and Thad Young.

GSW v POR warriors 4
LAC v UTA jazz 6 (end of clippers as we've known them)
HOU v OKC rockets 5
SAS v MEM spurs 6

BOS v CHI celtics 6
WAS v ATL wizards 7
TOR v MIL raptors 6
CLE v IND cavaliers 6

Clay, Friday, 14 April 2017 04:22 (one year ago) Permalink

I'm thinking the west will see mostly walkovers, with the exception of Clips v Jazz.

GSW over POR in 4
LAC over UTA in 7
HOU over OKC in 5
SAS over MEM in 4

I'm thinking the east will provide just a little more 1st round drama.

BOS over CHI in 5
ATL over WAS in 7
TOR over MIL in 6
CLE over IND in 5

But mostly I'm thinking I'm not so great at this prediction stuff.

I feel like the cavs won't make the finals

Matt Armstrong, Friday, 14 April 2017 19:52 (one year ago) Permalink

i still think they will but it will be much more challenging than in the past couple years

marcos, Friday, 14 April 2017 19:57 (one year ago) Permalink

i dont believe in upsets in the offs.

playoffs bron will emerge from his cocoon

nice cage (m bison), Friday, 14 April 2017 20:29 (one year ago) Permalink

injuries can foster upsets and 5s can beat 4s w/o it being an upset. but with a 7 game series, the 1-8, 2-7, and 3-6 usually go according to form.

a little too mature to be cute (Aimless), Friday, 14 April 2017 20:32 (one year ago) Permalink

true, but for me, clips v jazz is a unique case bc of all the clips' injuries during the season. i think theyre going to beat the jazz handily. (would like to be proven wrong tho). that wizards/atl series im less confident in my pick bc atl has some dece playoff experience and also defense is at a premium? but wall is the best player in this series.

The cavs feel like robin givens era mike Tyson looking for their buster Douglas

Lol

KLove looks bad in this Game 1. Wanders around a bit. Stands on his spot waiting for a pass. Doesn't get the ball out of his hands fast enough. Bad.

I'm annoyed by that play where they pacers choked away the 5 on 4 off the Lebron flop

I think Giannis could never shoot a shot outside 15 feet the rest of his career and get multiple MVPs

Matt Armstrong, Saturday, 15 April 2017 23:52 (one year ago) Permalink

they were like 17-7 or something after middleton came back. real team

bless hart, he seems to love poker, but he is...not good lol

hart is a pokerstars endorser idk if theyre paying the whole 300 or what but he cld be free rolling fwiw

like what wld the other guy be bluffing with there

lag∞n, Sunday, 28 May 2017 22:21 (one year ago) Permalink

idk i prob call in that situation 9 times out of 10, but i am a pr mediocre live player lol

Clay, Sunday, 28 May 2017 22:22 (one year ago) Permalink

kevin hart's watch is intense

Clay, Sunday, 28 May 2017 22:22 (one year ago) Permalink

it was kind of a weird spot, probably should have raised the flop multiway, 2 pair is one of the better hands you're going to have in that sitch considering you just called the flop. can prob find fold button there tho for sure

k3vin k., Sunday, 28 May 2017 22:24 (one year ago) Permalink

yeah trapping w top two threeway there was borderline but prob an ok play on a p dry board

lag∞n, Sunday, 28 May 2017 22:26 (one year ago) Permalink

he prob wasnt getting that guy off that draw w any at all normal size bet anyway

lag∞n, Sunday, 28 May 2017 22:27 (one year ago) Permalink

yeah the more i think abt it the more it's a fold. best case the guy's doing a v weird bluff, i prob woulda talked myself into thinking he hit trip 3's on the turn and gotten away from it

Clay, Sunday, 28 May 2017 22:27 (one year ago) Permalink

being on the ladder cld argue for the fold there too

lag∞n, Sunday, 28 May 2017 22:28 (one year ago) Permalink

yeah he cldve had all the sets there

lag∞n, Sunday, 28 May 2017 22:29 (one year ago) Permalink

busting out first and then hellmuth taking your seat is some extreme insult to injury

i saw a photo of cp3 at a poker table recently, if there's one NBA dude who could be a solid player it's def him

that call is a lot more reasonable at the start of the tourney tho

lol hellmuth despite regularly crushing tourneys that arent primarily stacked with the best players cant stay away from elite games just cause he has a chip on his shoulder

hart is a pretty standard bad home game type player from what i can tell

Clay, Sunday, 28 May 2017 22:58 (one year ago) Permalink

he's not horrendous but his level of play is definitely very basic
