The Eastern Conference Playoffs are finally here! After a long regular season, the top 8 teams in the conference are ready to battle it out for a spot in the NBA Finals. Tonight, the #1 seed Milwaukee Bucks will take on the #8 seed Orlando Magic. This will be the first time these two teams have met in the playoffs since the first round of the 2003 playoffs, which the Bucks won 3-1.
Boston Celtics vs. Philadelphia 76ers
The Boston Celtics and the Philadelphia 76ers are set to face off tonight in an Eastern Conference playoff game. The Celtics are the favorites to win, but the 76ers have proved they can compete by taking the last two games in the regular season series. This should be a close and exciting game!
Toronto Raptors vs. Cleveland Cavaliers
The Toronto Raptors and the Cleveland Cavaliers are both in the Eastern Conference of the NBA. The Raptors are the first seed in the conference, while the Cavaliers are the second seed. The two teams will be playing each other in the first round of the playoffs. The first game will be played on April 15, 2018, at 8:00 PM EDT.
Houston Rockets vs. Minnesota Timberwolves
The Houston Rockets take on the Minnesota Timberwolves in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs. The Rockets are the higher seed in this matchup, holding the fourth seed with a record of 53-29. The Timberwolves are the fifth seed, holding a record of 47-35. This will be a best-of-seven series, with the first two games being played in Houston.
The Rockets are led by All-Star guard James Harden, who averaged 30.4 points and 8.8 assists per game this season. Houston also has a strong supporting cast, including forward Clint Capela and guard Eric Gordon. The Timberwolves are led by All-Star forward Jimmy Butler, who averaged 22.2 points per game this season. Minnesota also has multiple young talents, including center Karl-Anthony Towns and swingman Andrew Wiggins.
This matchup will be an interesting one, as both teams have All-Stars and young talent. The Rockets are coming off of a strong season in which they won 53 games, while the Timberwolves had a bit of a down year after winning 47 games. However, anything can happen in the playoffs and this series could go either way. Be sure to tune in to see how it unfolds!
Golden State Warriors vs. San Antonio Spurs
The 2017 NBA Playoffs are finally here after what seemed like the longest regular season in recent memory. One of the most highly-anticipated first round matchups is arguably the Golden State Warriors vs. San Antonio Spurs series. The two teams met three times during the regular season, with the Warriors winning two of those contests.
The Warriors are coming into the series as the heavy favorites, as they are currently the reigning NBA champions and also boast one of the best rosters in all of basketball. On the other side, the Spurs are no slouches either as they finished with the second-best record in the Western Conference behind only Golden State.
This should be a fantastic series between two of the best teams in basketball and it should not be missed by any true fan of the sport.
