Its that time in the NBA season, the playoffs! Well I am here to give you the simplest first round playoff predictions. Now please DO NOT go by my predictions for your miscellaneous sports betting. I can’t afford a lawsuit for false information. Anyway, here we go!
1 Golden State Warriors VS 8 New Orleans Pelicans
It is going to be fun to watch Anthony Davis try his best Hornets-Chris Paul impression and attempt to carry this team all by himself in the playoffs. But seriously, the Warriors…
Golden State in 5
4 Portland Trail Blazers VS 6 Memphis Grizzlies
This is definitely going to be one of the more fun matchups, both talented teams with a lot of fun players. Blazers have too many injuries and lack of depth, the Grizzlies are just too good.
Grizzlies in 6
2 Houston Rockets VS 7 Dallas Mavericks
Ughh this is a tough first round one. I really want to go Dallas here but they lost a step. Besides who can deny the Beard??
Rockets In 7
3 Los Angelas Clippers VS 5 San Antonio Spurs
I am really sorry to the Clippers for getting this first round matchup; I just do not see their time coming in the stacked west. You can never sleep on the Spurs. They always get hot at just the right time.
Spurs in 6
1 Atlanta Hawks VS 8 Brooklyn Nets
I am a big Nets fan, I am. But come on, they stand no chance against the mini-spurs. They were lucky to get into the playoffs, and they will be lucky if they win one game.
Hawks in 5
4 Toronto Raptors VS 5 Washington Wizards
I definitely see this as one of the more exciting yet underrated series in the first round. So much talent, and so much speed. I feel the Raptors are the better team, but the Wizards have far more playoff-experienced players. Going to be good.
Wizards in 7
2 Cleveland Cavaliers VS 7 Boston Celtics
Cavaliers in 4
3 Chicago Bulls VS 6 Milwaukee Bucks
The Bulls are banged up and do not sleep on the young Bucks and J. Kidd. I see this going farther than most, but if the Bulls are anything, it is resilient. I see them pulling it out with a tough series.
Bulls in 6
To wrap this up, this is how I predict the second round to shape up. More predictions to come, enjoy!
