Was ksurprised with Kawhi guarding Smart. He has been taking the worst offensive player on defense. But I don't think that continues in the playoffs. PG is kinda overrated on defense, though.
And smart scored 31 points iirc. The great defender kahwi allowed 31 points to the worst offensive player. Interesting

What do you think the Lakers flaw is?

That's the main problem, IMHO. The Lakers have weaknesses, of course, but they aren't that big. They are favorites to come out of the West right now.
To beat them we have to be able to handle tough, tight defense. We haven't previously, but if we move the ball and shoot well, we have every chance to beat them.

They lack outside shooting. They also lack shot creation. Nobody really creates for themselves outside of LeBron. They play Rondo too much for their own good. I could see an opposing teams guards smashing theirs in a playoff series.

If you haven’t listened to Locke today, take a listen. It’s a cold shower. We have to really outperform or we’re slotted into the 4th or 5th seed against the Rox again.
I can't handle another first round against the Rockets. I think we can beat them but my heart can't take the stress.

Here's to hoping Denver slips up a bit, they have a more difficult remaining schedule. Houston has a easier remaining schedule than us.

We're getting the 2 seed

Strength of schedule-wise Utah has one of the bigger hills to climb. The first seven or so games after the all-star break will be huge. Spurs, Rockets, Celtics twice.

I’m fully on board and think we finish strong.

“Don’t **** this up, Mitchell!!!”

LOL - Three O'clock High.

I'm ashamed to say I saw that movie for the first time about 5 years ago. I'm not sure how it flew under my radar, especially considering I was probably in the demographic targeted for this movie when it came out - but I did.

It’s funny. It’s actually very, very well done. The director was fairly legit. So good.

But yeah, my motto for the next four months was the aforementioned, “Don’t **** this up, Mitchell!”

Right now we have the 15th toughest one left iirc. So about average. But yeah, most Western teams have easier ones. So if we can kickass on this upcoming homestand and those two road games thereafter against two scrubs, we should be in a really good position to get the 2 or 3 seed imo.
