Yes, the Cavs will roll to the finals in the even more weaker Eastern conference.

It would be an epic flop if they don't. Similar to GSW winning the most reg season games in history, being up 3-1 in the Finals, and losing the last 3, 2 on their home floor. Yeah, like that kind of flop.

Brian doesn't think the Cavs will even make the playoffs.

Madge gets so butthurt when Golden State destroys the Cavs. Relax man, it's okay, just one of 82.

Now they are without JR and Love.

It really doesn't matter to me if they are the last seed in, just as long as they are healthy.

The Cavs will, in part because the East is so weak.

The "weak East" comments are bit overstated. A quick peak at standings shows the West to have 6 good teams (over 30 wins now: GS, SA, HOU, LAC, UTA, MEM), and the East only 3 (CLE, BOS, TOR).

But, the West is also bottom heavy, 6 pretty bad teams with 19 or fewer wins. There are only 3 of these in the East. The East has a lot of decent teams that can be dangerous on any given night (WAS, ATL, DET, MIL, IND).

Having said that, assuming reasonable health, the Cavs will make the final.

However, keep your eyes and ears open for this: Jimmy Butler to the Celtics is being discussed. The Thomas, Butler, Horford trio should be a concern to the Cavs. If the trade happens, and it allows the Celtics to also keep Avery Bradley and Jae Crowder, the Celtics will be a handful.

Because the Western Conference plays more Western Conference teams than Eastern Conference, basic math would tell you if there are 6 teams with over 30 wins in the West then there would be near 6 teams with 30 losses since when one team loses, one also has to lose.

Now obviously there are crossover games where the East plays the West, so we can use those to see that the East isn't as bad on the whole as they once were, but they're still the inferior conference.

The last time I looked (about a week ago), the West enjoyed nearly a 600 win percentage over the East in head to head games. I think the talk about how the West is bottom heavy is overstated by you as those teams play more games in the West and play against better teams more often.

Yes. They will make it to the finals, no d0ubt about that.

They will win it all, again, if they are healthy.
