2017 NBA Playoffs Conference Semifinals Picks

2017 NBA Playoffs Conference Semifinals Picks

Even though the second round will start soon, not all 2nd round matchups have been set yet. I wish the NBA would change there playoff scheduling in sort of have all series finished before the next round starts. I love the NBA playoffs but they need to consider changing it’s format once and for all. Now the lone series that is not finished is Utah Jazz Los Angeles Clippers, and they still have a Game 7 This coming Sunday. I think who ever wins that game has to deal with a well rested Golden State Warriors. Some of the 1st round series were at times great. Here is my Round 2 picks:

Eastern Conference

Boston over Washington (6 games)

Cleveland over Toronto (6 games)

Western Conference

San Antonio over Houston (7 games)

Golden State over Utah or Los Angeles (7 games)

 

There you have it, so make sure you keep up on my picks throughout the postseason. I have to run as I will be traveling back home from New York. So I won’t be watching until I get back. I will talk to you soon.

2017 NBA Playoffs Picks + Notes

2017 NBA Playoffs Picks + Notes

What a season for the NBA, i mean that marathon of a regular season is finally over. I thought the playoffs would not get here, with everything settled. Did we really get the 16 best teams this season. In my opinion Heck NO we did not. I mean there were some teams that showed up too late (That’s right Miami Heat), and some teams that never got off the bus (New York Knicks). I really should call out the sorry Brooklyn Nets, but its typical for them. So they allowed the Chicago Bulls to get a playoff spot that they never really earned. No one can convince me otherwise, on why they should be in over Miami Heat (who went 30-11 in the 2nd half of the season). You got to be kidding me with that garbage i just watched. The rest issue is getting out of hand and its time for new rules and standards, once and for all. Meanwhile, we got a postseason to get ready for and here are my 1st round picks (Conference Quarterfinal matchups):

Eastern conference:

Boston over Chicago (5 games)
Cleveland over Indiana (6 Games)
Toronto over Milwaukee (4 Games)
Washington over Atlanta (4 Games)

Western conference:

Golden State over Portland (7 Games)
San Antonio over Memphis (6 Games)
Oklahoma City over Houston (7 Games)
Utah over L.A. Clippers (7 Games)

Well there is my picks, so enjoy the playoffs and i will be back soon with the next round worth of picks and notes.
