What team has a fan base where night in night out in every home game, brings the energy making it very difficult to get a win? I ask this because for the most part every playoff crowed can provide a lot of energy.

What arena would you not wanna see your team to have to go into during the regular season?

For me it's the Pepsi Center and Phillips Arena.

Utah and Portland

Yeah i agree, Utah is number 1, then Portland for me... after that maybe the Pepsi Centre. I remember when Arco was tough to play in... i mean the cowbells and everything, no arena was louder than that 2002 conference finals with the Lakers.

Dallas in the regular season is probably the hardest place to get a W


115-28 @ home in the last 4 years is just stupid

I would say Utah due to some of the officiating crew, because of that, their homecourt is really producing home court advantage. Second is Portland then maybe TD Garden. Their fans really can energize their players big time but seems to be not much effective to my Bulls.

technically its the Lakers because they have the best home record in NBA

OK...It's probably Portland and Utah

Utah, Portland and Denver can be impossible places sometimes. Boston and Detroit shouldn't be overlooked either, when those teams are playing physical ball those crowds can get very loud...

I've always thought Utah would be the toughest. Golden State when they had a good team was ridiculous. Dallas and Portland are right up there and Detroit got pretty loud this whole decade.

LA is weird. Games in November and December can be as loud as anywhere, but late in the season and in the play-offs more and more people go to the games just for status, which means the Lakers won't have a very intense crowd in the play-offs. It can be annoying.

Portland and Utah are hard to argue against for sure. Im surprised noone has said Cleveland though. While it doest seem all that intimidating going there, they simply dont lose at home (5 or 6 games in the last season and a half)

That's a great point. I don't know the stats for this season, but last season they only lost two at home didn't they? And one was when they were resting their starters. Cleveland are definitely tough to beat at home.

ahahahahahahahahaha is this thread honestly talking about fan involvement in the sport of basketball ahahahahahaha!!! There is no such thing as a hostile environment at any NBA arena. Mainly because right when t he fans kind get into it a little the other team scores cause the NBA is non-stop scoring, no defense.
