I’ve had folks ask me why I’m so excited about the Warrior-Nugget game tonight. It’s simple. The winner of this game has a good chance at being in the Western Conference Finals. Either of these teams can legitimately beat New Orleans, Houston, Utah and Dallas and in some of those matchups, I’d favor one of these 8 seeds. San Antonio, LA and Phoenix I’d have to rate as my three favorites but depending on health/injury and length of previous series I would not discount the Warriors or Nuggets in any playoff matchup. This is the first time I’ve ever thought that about any 8 seed. Let the fun begin!
