So the Playoffs are off to an exciting start, so what we learned in the last two days of the playoffs well when I look at the first two days.
I saw teams that look strong in the Milwaukee Bucks who beat the Pistons 121-86 but yet it’s only game one so anything is possible but, to be honest, I can’t see the Pistons getting past the offence of the Bucks.
We also saw the Raptors the second seed in the East lose a close game one against the Magic, not having watched the entire game it’s hard for me to make an accurate assessment of the game as a whole.
But from what I did see I feel that game two will have a different outcome, but the Raptors defence has to pick up, as well as their shot-making.
Houston showed why they were a 50 win team as they dominated the Jazz, I mean when I look at the Jazz they were strong throughout the season but always seem to run into a wall in the playoffs well let’s see if they can change their fortunes in game 2.
Boston vs Indiana I watched this game from beginning to end, and honestly, the Celtics did not show their best I feel they are not a team that can go all the way; they may get past the Pacers, but I feel that will be all she wrote.
Brooklyn vs Philadelphia all I can say is WOW, the nets came out hungry and took the game to the 76ers.
Again not have watched the entire game, I can’t make an accurate assessment of the entire game, I still feel that the 76ers are a slightly better team, but at the same time, the nets didn’t become the sixth seed by fluke either, let’s see how this series plays out.
Oklahoma vs Portland: this series has the makings of a seven-game series, and to be honest, the superstars of both teams need to show and prove that they are better than what their past playoff performances have shown.
The Nuggets and Spurs series is telling of two bulls going head to head, and the Spurs came out the better team in game game one.
Demar Derozan had a stellar performance scoring 18 points 12 rebounds 6 assists and 1 block in 39 minutes, but I feel he can be and will be better as this series progress, but don’t count the out Nuggets.
I feel if given the opportunity they can come back and win this series, but that all depends on how Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray play their offence is what is going to help lead the Nuggets into the next round.
The final game this weekend had the defending NBA Champs taking the Los Angeles Clipper. Of course, the Warriors won 121-104 with Steph Curry scoring 38 points in 37 minutes, Kevin Durant and 23 points in 32 minutes that should say enough about how dominant the Warriors are;
I mean, understand two players does not a team make. Still, it’s not just two players; it’s their entire team; I mean, the Clippers have some good players themselves. Still, they’re not as potent as their Warriors.
So my prediction for this series is a four-game sweep; I mean, crazier things have happened, and I hope the Clippers play better in game two, but I don’t see it.
