NBA Week 5

Biggest Takeaway in the Atlantic Division

Jason- Kyrie Irving is playing like the 3rd best player in the league. (He’s not, just right now he looks like it)

Dan- If Tim Hardaway Jr can keep playing like this, the New York might’ve found another piece of the puzzle.

Zach- Ben Simmons might already be the best young star in the NBA…through 17 games.

Biggest Takeaway in the Central Division

Jason- The Pistons are beginning to come back to earth. They are finally cooling off.

Dan- Great week for the Cavs. Make Lebron take over.

Zach- The Pacers are one of the most exciting teams to watch. They play unselfish and play for each other.

Biggest Takeaway in the Southeast Division

Jason- The combo of Dragic and Waiters PLUS Whiteside should make the Heat competitive with the Raptors and Wizards.

Dan- Kemba and Howard have played great together these past three games. We’ll see if they can keep it up.

Zach- The Magic are finally returning to reality.

Biggest Takeaway in the Pacific Division

Jason- I’m writing this after the Nuggets game on Sunday… This was the Zo and Randle we Laker fans have been dying for. Personally, I start Randle and let Kuz and Clarkson DESTROY benches.

Dan- What does it take to beat the Warriors? Three guys with double doubles and three guys with 20+ points. Good luck!

Zach- TJ Warren should be in contention for Most Improved Player.

Biggest Takeaway in the Southwest Division

Jason- The Mavericks need to turn this around… call me crazy but DSJ will get tired of losing FAST.

Dan- Very solid week for the Mavs, beating the leading MVP candidate, almost ending Boston’s losing streak, and picking up another win against Memphis. It looks like when Barnes plays well, the team plays well.

Zach- The Grizzlies need to turn their season around after losing 6 straight games.

Biggest Takeaway in the Northwest Division

Jason- The Thunder finally looked legit against the Warriors Wednesday night. If they play like this, the Western Conference Finals will be one heck of a series.

Dan- IF the Thunder play that well in a 7 game series, then they could win the Finals, but I don’t see a way they can play like that every night.

Zach- The Thunder finally proved that they are a legitimate Finals contender and can beat anybody.

Player of the Week

Jason- Joel Embiid

Dan- Tim Hardaway Jr

Zach- Russell Westbrook

Game of the Week

Jason- Pistons @ Timberwolves

Dan- Celtics @ Mavericks

Zach- Warriors @ Thunder

Bold Prediction

Jason- The Lakers get the #8 seed in the playoffs

Dan- The Cavs go on a 12 game winning streak.

Zach- The Pacers get the #5 seed in the playoffs.
