Default Blazers or Nuggets have a...chance?

It's wildly apparent that the East is stronger than the West this year and has been for many years. Do we honestly think the Blazers or Nuggets have any chance of making the finals?

Imagine one of these two teams playing in the Western Conference Finals

About as good a chance as OP has at ever having a meaningful relationship with a woman not named mommy.

So no.

Zero chance.

LOL

I want some team not named GSW/Hou win this year, but they are still the favourites and West > East.

Gap has shortened with Boston and Toronto upgrade and GSW apparent downgrade but donīt overreact.

On the question, I think they have not chance, Denver would probably do after GSW disbands and they got more experience. Blazers with this core is not enough.

The stars seem to be lining up for Dame. Blazers should make the WCF, could've made the finals if not for Nurk going down

First year in a while that the West's elite is worse compared to the East. Any of the top 4 in the East would murder the Blazers.

Pretty sure Aminu would lock Giannis up. Look what Horfords doing to him.

Blazers could beat both the Bucks and Sixers.

Lillard really struggles finishing over length. Both those teams have length in abundance. Lillard and the Blazers get clamped and lose in low scoring games and only win in scenarios where both CJ and Lillard get stupid hot from 3. It wouldn't even be close imo. Denver is harder to predict because they're more dynamic but they also lack a closer.
