Default WC PLAYOFFS RD 1 : (3)DEN NUGGETS vs (6) GS WARRIORS

STARTERS:

DEN

Ty Lawson
Evan Fournier
Andre Iguodala
Wilson Chandler(Kenneth Faried when healthy)
Kosta Koufos


GSW

Stephen Curry
Klay Thompson
Harrison Barnes
David Lee
Andrew Bogut

KEY ROTATION PLAYERS:

DEN

Andre Miller
Corey Brewer
Javale Mcgee

GSW

Jarrett Jack
Carl Landry

Key Matchups:

If DEN was healthy, I'd say DEN would win this series in 5, but due to Gallo being out, and Faried being out for at least a game, it changes the complexion of the entire series. I think with Karl trapping Curry off of screens, that David Lee will need to put up huge numbers as the decision maker in the offence since they'll be playing 4 on 3 with the trap on Curry on screen rolls with the ball going to Lee early in the shot clock. On the DEN side of things, they're going to need Lawson to have a big series, and for Iggy to score the ball more due to their lack of proven scoring now and less paint points with 2 of their big producers out. This matchup will be close throughout, but I'll take DEN since they have homecourt(though I hope I'm wrong)

PREDICTION:

DEN IN 7

2 young and exciting,high scoring teams. I give the edge to Golden State in 6 because they have the best player in the series(Curry) and an All Star in David Lee. George Karl doesn't get it done in the post season so I also give the less experienced Mark Jackson the coaching edge because of his hard nosed,leadership mentality as a player with the Pacers and Knicks.

The best series on the West. Look forward to 250 point games.
Steph gon be real good since he loves pressure games.
Gotta go with the team with homecourt advantage.

this series will be a ton of fun, lots of running. i see GSW finishing this in 6...in an up and down series like this depth is a huge factor. GSW is nice and deep, while Denver has been hit with the injury bug.

The Nuggets will win every game in Denver and they are good enough to steal one in Oakland. 4-1

GSW in 5! Betting sites are giving away free bunnies (they have GSW +.325 or in other words that they are going to loose by 8 today, and that they are going to loose the series)
made a bet of 10 bucks return is 42.5
