NBA Playoffs: Round II
My thoughts and predictions for the second round of the playoffs ....
Celtics / Bucks: Bucks in 7
- It’s hard to see anyone who can take Giannis down but, if the Celtics can play at the top of their potential (and that’s a BIG if), the Celtics can take them to the limit.
Raptors / 76ers: Raptors in 5
Leonard is just too good. I was leaning towards Raptors in 6, but I honestly don’t see how Philly can stop them for more than 1 game.
Nuggets / Trailblazers: Trailblazers in 6
My head tells me that this should be easy for Denver. They’ve significantly outplayed them in the season series and Portland may be down another center. And, even a healthy Kantor shouldn’t be able to touch Jokic but ...
.... are you going to bet against this dude?
Warriors / Rockets: Warriors in 7
Granted, I don’t like Houston - so I’m biased - but James Harden is going to have to show me that he’s not going to fade away in the playoffs before I believe it.
Who do you have?
