The World’s Quickest 2018 NBA Playoff Preview: 1st Round

I am really, REALLY looking forward to the 2018 NBA Playoffs. Unlike years’ past (especially LAST year), both conferences are wide-ass open.  I mean, both conferences have favorites, but they are not CLEAR CUT favorites.  As a result, don’t expect any sweeps in the first round.
