Eye on Basketball Podcast: Double down
Zach Harper and Matt Moore discuss the Heat's and Nuggets' streaks, who the Warriors would want to face, and preview Monday night's games.
After a weekend in Las Vegas for March Madness, I'm back and talking to Matt Moore about the two big winning streaks right now (no, not my blackjack exploits). While I was gone, the Miami Heat and Denver Nuggets continued their winning ways by extending their streaks to 26 and 15 games, respectively. How has it been going for them? When will it all end? Do you want to see them continue to win at this point?
We also talk about the Golden State Warriors and try to figure out whether or not they'd rather face the Nuggets or the Los Angeles Clippers in the first round of the playoffs. Should they hope for a fast-paced, 3-point shootout against the Nuggets? Should they hope they face a Clippers team that is struggling to make outside shots in a slower, half court type of tempo? Do they have a real shot against either team?
We discuss all of that, plus March Madness prospects for this upcoming draft, rascals on moving walkways, and preview tonight's games.
