I love the playoff preview. With how much the real NBA and your myLeague game have diverged, it's nice to get a look at where the rosters are at. Call me biased, but I'm predicting Portland over Boston in the Finals. :)

It should be an interesting playoff series. The Warriors are clearly the favourites once again, especially with Cleveland losing their dominance of the eastern conference this year.

Can the Raptors continue their regular season form or will they choke under the pressure of being the #1 seed?

Will the young stars of the Sixers and Bucks take them all the way?

San Diego make it in their debut season. But what can rookie of the year Dennis Smith Jr do against 2x MVP Russell Westbrook.


It's weird to not have the Spurs in the playoffs. The Clippers with Melo also missed out somehow.

Also, have to love that the Kings strengthened a lot in the off-season but still finished bottom of the conference :lol:


I think it may end up being Golden State vs Toronto or Boston. I like to be optimistic, but I just can't see any way for me to beat the Warriors.

My immediate thoughts as I looked at that playoff preview. Just feels wrong for them to not be in...
1st seed in the East only having 51 wins also, that East-West difference is getting bigger!

Fantastic job winning both games on the road, too early to bring out the brooms? :cool:

Jeez you destroyed them. Great job taking that 2-0 lead on the road. I've always found game 3's at home tough to win in this situation so good luck!

I was hoping that the likes of Boston, Philadelphia and Toronto would elevate themselves to Cleveland's level. But instead the Cavs just lowered themselves a bit. At least it's more competitive.

It's hard to see anyone stopping Golden State anyway. But you never know.


I really wasn't expecting to get anything in Houston. Brooms are on standby now though :P

We almost choked game 3 away :wink:

Only one more win until I get to play the Warriors, yay! :cry:

I'm pretty happy that we kept him to just 16 ppg for the series. I was pretty worried about him dropping big numbers, but Iguodala and Bledsoe did a great job slowing him down (Y)

I stuck with them for two and a half quarters, but they just have too much scoring power.

Len fouled out early in the fourth quarter and it was effectively game over at that point.

Great job completing the sweep :applaud:

Winning against the Warriors on the road is definitely near-impossible. Hopefully you can hold on at home and force a prolonged series. Doesn't look possible from the first two games though...

We had an incredible first quarter. Len (18pts) and Bender (7pts, 4reb, 6ast, 2blk) absolutely dominated.

They eventually combined for 57 points, 14 rebounds, 17 assists, 1 steal and 6 blocks. Len even got some MVP chants in the final minute :D

The annoying thing was I started both those games really well offensively, it's just that Golden State have insane firepower and were just too hard to stop. McGee getting easy baskets was the most insulting thing though :evil:

At least we avoided a sweep :mrgreen: That's literally all I wanted from this series.

Yeah I know what you mean, at times it just feels like they will never miss no matter what aye :|

Great job getting a pivotal game 3 win to avoid being down 3-0. Push them to the brink!

We started so well in the first half, but they came really hard in the third quarter. Bender hit three crucial three pointers late in the third to keep us in the game.


But honestly, I really choked this game, and probably the series, away.

The game was tied at 121-121 with 2 minutes left, but I rushed an inbound pass and Durant intercepted it and scored. Then a few seconds later Curry made an open three and it was game over, basically.

It's almost unfair to have 4 all-star quality players on the same team on a video game. Even if you have a brilliant start against them, it literally only takes one quarter for them to overrun you.

Needless to say I was pretty annoyed to score 129 points and still lose.
