    I was surprised that the Clips took the series against the Spurs. CP3 took and made a crazy shot to win the series. But as for the series with Houston and L.A. Everyone is healthy in the Rockets, but their bench is weaker than the Clippers' bench. So it's hard to decide. If I had to, because Houston is at home, I think is taking game 1.

    GSW is probably going to play Houston in the Conference Finals! Unless the Clippers find a way to shutdown Harden in critical plays. It'll be tough because Harden is a pure scorer and can create space to get a shot.

    If they do try to stop Harden, I don't know if Crawford or Redick could stop him. they'll have to put Barnes on him (but I think Barnes is injured, I forget). If he can't play, then they won't be able to stop Harden's scoring. Having TJones and Howard up against Lob City will be so hype because it's a great matchup with Jordan and Griffin!

    Paul is at the point of inconsistency, and even though I love Chris Paul because he's such a dictator at his position I don't know if he's capable of handling the pressure at his age and if his body could handle the stress of constantly playing huge minutes to lead the Clips to the next round. I'm rooting for Clips against Golden State, but I see Houston taking it.

    Love the answer. I had San Antonio as my NBA Champion. I'm gunning for the Clips in Round two. They are the more veteran team having been together longer, and they are hungry and tired of not winning. After what they did to the Spurs I think they will handle the Rockets. And did you see that shot Paul hit to win the series. The man is a basketball doctor he will be ready to go.
