The NBA Playoffs are right around the corner. They start on April 15 with 16 teams battling to take home the title. I will be previewing them for you guys today.
The Eastern Conference really has 4 good teams and anybody of those teams basically has no chance to make the Finals. The Cleveland Cavaliers, Boston Celtics, Washington Wizards, and Toronto Raptors are the favorites to win the Eastern Conference. The Cavs have made it two years in a row and look the part to make it a third consecutive year. Kyrie Irving and LeBron James have had fantastic seasons, but Isaiah Thomas and John Wall both think they can lead their teams to the championship. I think the Cavaliers ultimately have too much talent, depth, and experience and I think they’ll make it back to the NBA Finals.
The Western Conference is a little tougher to dissect. The Warriors have had another amazing season, but the Spurs and Rockets are close competition. The Jazz, Clippers, Thunder, and Grizzlies could all make surprises runs in the playoffs. I like to Spurs to play the Warriors in the Western Conference Finals, and I think the Golden State Warriors will make to the Finals to face the Cleveland Cavaliers for the third year in a row.
I like the Cavs top the Warriors for the second year in a row. LeBron will win Finals MVP and the Cavs will go back to back. Thank you for reading my NBA Playoff preview and predictions.
