    Now that Golden State is out of the mix in the West, that leaves another opening for a playoff team. The top 4 teams are obviously the Clippers, Rockets, Nuggets, and Jazz. Then the Spurs and Lakers look like safe bets to make the final 8 as well. That leaves Dallas and Portland as the most likely candidates to fill the last two spots with New Orleans, Minnesota, and Phoenix as dark horses.

      Still living in your fantasy world I see. Can’t wait for your poor rockets to fizzle out just like every year.

    • Strike Four

      You wrote all that 4 games into the season. Like a dimwit.

      Oops you are a Rockets fan, so that’s already implied all of your takes and posts are complete trash.

      You are going to cry soooo hard when the Slash bros come back after the ASG and work everyone to grab a playoff spot and then ONCE AGAIN, eliminate you fake good team for the millionth time LOL AT U

        First off, read what you write before you send it, you come off as a giant idiot who can’t write complete sentences. Second, ACL tears take about 9-12 months to come back. Let’s assume Klay comes back in 9, that’d be about mid April, with Curry out until at least January. Which neither is around the all star break. They won’t be climbing out of that hole. But, by all means, keep being delusional.

        Strike four do you read what you post or no? GS (even if Curry comes back around the break) are fried. Who’s going to win them games the next 40ish games? Russell? Green even if he were healthy might get you 10 a game and after that there’s no one. By the time curry gets back GS will be lucky to be only 15 games under .500 in the west.

      Rockets are 3-3 and can’t give up less than 120 a game. Can’t even beat the Nets or Heat. Top 4 in the was are LAC, LAL, Denver and Utah in my opinion. Rockets/POR fall in at 5-6 then spurs/Mavericks round it out I think.

    If you subtract Vince Carter from the Hawks wonder what the average of the team would be ??
