The Golden State Warriors face off against the Denver Nuggets at 2:30 Pacific Time on Saturday. Here are a bunch of stuff around the internet on what should be the most entertaining series in the first round.
Without further ado, here you go.

I will, of course, have my own playoff preview set for tomorrow but if you are all waiting on pins and needles and need to devour stuff on "X-factors" and "Keys to the Series", there's plenty enough there for you all to enjoy.
The most striking takeaway—if there is such a thing in arbitrarily useless playoff predictions—is that while most people think the Denver Nuggets will win the series, they also believe this to be the most entertaining and wild first-round matchup.
Can't argue with that.
