    if that's true, I guess the Clippers would be wise to wrap things up in a hurry...

    Louie stay out of this. You are too biast to have a fair opinion.

    It certainly would make the series more interesting, because with a full strength Warriors you have to ask yourself how can the Clippers possible beat them 4 times in 7 games (including at least 2 in GS - because not like Warriors aren't winning at least 1 in LA).

    Two years ago the Warriors extended a Xmas day invitation to the Clips to join them in chapel service (tradition) & the Clip's basically told them to get fukced. This of course proceeded a fiesty game.

    By far the most exciting playoff series possible (other than Spurs v Warriors).

    Sure... but everyone tries hard in the playoffs anyways and Portland is not easy to beat at home.

    Think so? Taking a cursory look back on SBRodds Warriors were 4 and 5 pt favs when Blake and Curry were both playing...thats not taking into account doubleheaders or home court advantage but Curry has to be worth more than 5 pts to Joe Public.

    IMO if Houston takes game 5 and shows a chink in the armor, The Clipps will be the series favs. But Clipps have to get past 2nd best backcourt in the league in Blazers first.

    No longer need Curry to be the favorite against a Clipper team w/out Paul...Portland on the other hand

    I think the Warriors can beat Portland without Curry but it will be tough.. It'll go the distance with both teams holding serve.. Warriors needs Barnes to step it up like he did a few years ago, especially in that Spurs series..

    Guess it's time to make a new thread "can the Warriors without Curry beat the Clippers without Paul"

    Definitely think Clippers would've smacked them. Repeat of the 2013 WCSF when Memphis beat OKC 4-1 after Westbrook went down to make their first WCF. The funny thing is OKC was favoured for that series and the Warriors would probably have been favoured too.

    I wouldn't be so sure Clippers advance.. I think the momentum swing to Blazers side.. Game 5 will be the deciding game.. Clippers lose game 5, Blazers will beat them at home.. Clippers are not as deep as Warriors who actually plays as a team.. They don't have the will to survive Paul's injury but who knows maybe they'll step up.. I think this series is far from over,..

    Oh completely agree. I was talking about what I would've thought before the injury.

    Blazers can win this series, no question. Would've actually been funny if the Clippers hadn't choked in game 3, Portland would be in position to break the no comeback from 0-3 rule.

    Warriors would be a pk at worst. Likely -150 to -200

    Wow now Paul out. I guess Durant and Leonard might go out as well. Warriors keep getting the bounce.

    Maybe the Spurs can lend Clipps or Warriors a third string PG to make the series competitive. =S

    But yea, Blazers got to seize this opportunity and see conference finals. The pressure suddenly is on Terry Stotts

    Can't wait to see the end result to all these injuries.

    Golden State can compete without Curry. They just can't play "typical" GS bball. Meaning... run and gun.... with a few turnovers here and there. Just CAN'T TURN THE BALL OVER. They should be ok. I think Kerr can figure it out.

    Clipps bench almost beat OKC, beat the Jazz at home, when Jazz needed to win badly. Clips may put up a better fight than expected.. as long as they can get past the Blazers
