NBA Playoff Predictions



NBA Playoff Format

The NBA Playoffs have already started and many interesting things could happen. Here are my reflections so far as well as my predictions.

Both Conferences have great teams and there isn’t a clear picture of who will win the Finals. In the Eastern Conference, The Miami Heat are the number one seed, playing the Atlanta Hawks in what seems to be an easy win. The Boston Celtics are the number two seed playing the Brooklyn Nets. This is a series that everybody will watch. Recently Kyrie Irving got fined $50,000 for flipping off Boston fans who were booing him. The Nets lead the series 2-0 right now. With Kyrie Irving not being able to play in Brooklyn, It may be a sweep for the Celtics. The Milwaukee Bucks are the three seed, playing the Chicago Bulls. The Bulls haven’t seen the Playoffs in a while and there playing like they belong here. The series between them is tied 1-1. I’m predicting that the Bulls will win this series, even though I don’t like them, it’s the sad truth. The final match in the Eastern Conference is the four seed Philadelphia 76’ers, playing the Toronto Raptors. The Raptors are my second favorite team besides the Pistons, and I would like to see them win the first round. That is almost impossible to happen because the 76’ers have a 3-0 series lead.

In the Western Conference, The Golden State Warriors are proving there point, while one seed Phoneix is failing to preform against the New Orleans Pelicans. The Pelicans and the Suns are tied 1-1. With Devin Booker being out, it’s unlikely that the Suns will sweep the rest of the series. The Memphis Grizzlies are the two-seed, playing the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Wolves are a great team with Anthony Edwards playing phenomenal. I think that the Wolves will win this series. The highly anticipated Warriors should easily beat the Denver Nuggets. They lead the series 2-0 and many people think they can make the Finals if they win round one. The Final match of the Western Conference is the Dallas Mavericks against the Utah Jazz. The Jazz are not what they used to be and the Mavs are playing pretty great ball.

In the Finals, I’m predicting that the Golden State Warriors will play the Philadelphia 76’ers. I think this would be a great matchup to see with a dominant Warriors squad playing Joel Embiid and the 76’ers. Let’s hope the rest of the Playoffs is great!
