Conference Finals Survival Odds, Big Game James, Sixers Panic vs. Perspective
On today's show Andrew Sharp and Ben Golliver look back at Sixers/Celtics and preview the Conference Finals. They begin by discussing the Conference Finals in the context of the re-seeding conversation (1:00), and then discuss whether the Rockets or Celtics survive longer in the Conference Finals. Then they go into depth on Rockets-Warriors (16:00), including whether Houston is the Toronto of the West, whether Clint Capela can play in this series, the implications of the Hamptons 5 nickname, Chris Paul against the Jazz, and James Harden's playoff history. At the end (44:00): Missing Kyrie Irving, next year's Boston roster, the last two weeks of LeBron James, the proper level of concern for the Sixers and Ben Simmons, hate-listening to rival podcasts, and handicapping the Cavs-Celtics rematch.
