Rockets played them pretty tough last playoffs. Lost the first two games by a total of 5 points before getting blown out in game 3. Had a commanding victory in game 4 before ultimately losing in game 5. Every game Harden played well in, they where close to winning. The two big losses Harden had really poor games. I don't see them winning the series, but I can almost guarantee they take 1.

I think rockets are worse this year than last year and warriors are better this year than last year

They are both practically the same team. Yes, Warriors have performed much better and the Rockets worse, but the rosters are practically the same (actually the Rockets have a better roster since Beverly will actually play this series). I think the Rockets step their play up and make some of these games tough.

I agree that the rosters are almost the same. Yet I still think warriors are better than last year and rockets are worse than last year. And I still think warriors sweep.

Also, I'm not trying to convince you to change your prediction I'm just giving mine. That is the point of the thread right?

I'm rooting for the Heat this year.. they're a fun team with all the old vets like DWade, Joe Johnson, Stoudemire and Dragic.. but also some exciting young talents like Whiteside and Justice Winslow,...


Also it would be cool if they can beat the bolted LeBron in the Eastern Conference Finals (I think they have a fighting chance)

It's all going to end the same way as last year: Warriors beat Cavs in the Finals.

Top 3 performer for Toronto all with an inefficient game so far and Toronto still in the mix. Myles Turner impressive.

Watching the Raptors choke to open up the playoffs is becoming an annual playoff tradition.
