As we’re beginning to move on to the next round of the NBA playoffs, these two teams WILL make it to the NBA
finals! But before I jump ahead…Let talk about the next round matchups both in the Eastern, and Western
- Houston Rockets has advanced to the next round to face the winners between the Golden State Warriors and the Los Angeles Clippers. (LAC) forced a Game 6 with a shocking win over (GSW) last night, well I not expecting them(LAC) to surpass to the next round, though they may have something special there in the near future. Maybe, they can get some big named player this off-season, definitely a thing to watch out for. As for the Warriors, the pressure is on them to win the NBA Final for a 3rd consecutive year. Demarcus Cousins will be out indefinitely, with a leg (thigh) injury.
2. Portland Trailblazers battle passed the Oklahoma City Thunder, who now everyone seems to question Russell Westbrook and the future with his team, this off-season the goal should be surrounding another big named or noticeable “role player” with this group. Maybe next year fellas! But time isn’t on their side. However, Damian Lillard has been under-rated for years in this league, he is playing with a chip on his shoulder and I like it, I like it alot!
San Antonio Spurs vs Denver Nuggets
Who wins this series? And Why?
Coach Greg Popovich = Legendary
The Denver Nuggets are a young team with amazing talents and a promising future after an amazing season. I expect this series to go down to the wired! That right you heard it here first @SportsGS! A game 7 will be forced! San Antonio will give it all they got and upset these Nuggets at home. No Surprise here! I can’t wait to see the matchup between the Blazers and Spurs the battle we all should’ve been waiting for! The match up between old team “Lillard vs Aldridge” they share a past as both played for together for serveral year at Portland, which then Aldridge was “ready to win a championship” then decided to leave and play for Coach Pop! San Antonio Spurs vs Portland Trailblazers will be the next round match-up!
Milwaukee Bucks vs Boston Celtics
1. Bucks win! The reason why is simple MVP MVP MVP!
This series will be the reason Kyrie Irving will not resign with the Celtics this off-season, again another young team in the Boston Celtics. A lot of criticism between Irving and the Celtics throughout the season, not a good look. But I can tell you one way or another it’s going to come back and bite you in the tail. When the Celtics lose this series,( and I actually like the Celtics) I think the organization will not be and any hurry to offer Kyrie a new contract deal, which I think if they don’t make it to the Finals, then yeah he’s done there anyway. They have to many young talented players on their team, like the old saying ” There no “I” in team, but there one in Kyrie, think about it!
Philadelphia 76ers vs Toronto Raptors
Toronto Raptors has been the number team in the East Conference for the past couple of seasons, overshadowed by Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers, you would of never guess it! I expect the Raptors to advance by the 76ers though it may take 6 games to do it.
In conclusion, the Houston Rockets will come out of the West, and the Raptors will come out of the East!
It’s James Harden year! Congrats ahead of time!
