These NBA Playoffs have gotten off to such an exciting start! With the exception of the Pelicans’ sweep of the Trail Blazers, the first round was “must-see TV”. Even those 5-game “gentlemen sweeps” were captivating!
Now, let’s see if the conference semifinals will bring us the same level of excitement. The matchups are pretty tantalizing, especially the old-school Boston-Philadelphia affair.
And yeah, I know: I’m late as hell with this. So sue me.
Boston Celtics vs. Philadelphia 76ers
Prediction: Sixers in 6 (see what I did there?)
Toronto Raptors vs. Cleveland Cavaliers
Prediction: Cavs in 6
Houston Rockets vs. Utah Jazz
Prediction: Rockets in 5
Golden State Warriors vs. New Orleans Pelicans
Prediction: if Steph Curry is not 100%, Pelicans in 6. Otherwise, Warriors in 7
