NBA Prepares for Unpredictable Playoffs

Ajustar Comment Impresión

A lot of records were produced this season. With James Harden coming off the seventh-best regular season scoring average (36.1 points per game) in National Basketball Association history, only a fool would casually write the Rockets off. Since then the Dubs have averaged 115.1 points per game, while shooting a league-leading 49% from the field. He scored 50 or more points on nine separate occasions and topped 60 twice as well. Hopefully, the former No. 1 overall pick can get the proper treatment before Game 1 against the Bucks starts.

James moved up again.

Curry has 378 career postseason 3s, good for No. 2 on the NBA's all-time playoff list.

Cousins made his season debut at the Clippers on January 18 and he has become a significant contributor on both ends. He's a playmaker that can take over games when he catches fire on the court, as shown by his performance in the playoffs previous year, but he'll need to be a bit more consistent to assert himself as one of the league's best young stars.

Speaking of the Warriors and Rockets, they're most likely on a collision-course to meet in the second round instead of the conference finals, due to the Rockets falling to the fourth spot on the last day of the regular season.

The NBA Western Conference playoffs tip off Saturday when the Clippers take on the Warriors at 8 p.m. ET (ABC).

While the Clippers have a promising young core of Zubac, Gilgeous-Alexander and Shamet, the Warriors have established star power. Warriors center DeMarcus Cousins will appear in the playoffs for the first time, and Golden State beat Doc Rivers' club by 27 points earlier this week.

The Warriors are looking forward to snatching four of the last five season championships. With All-Stars Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons already in place along with JJ Redick, they built what may be not only the strongest starting five in the East but also one of the best in the National Basketball Association.

Players to watch: Pascal Siakam had a breakout season (16.9 ppg) for the Raptors, and Kawhi Leonard will be making his postseason debut for the team. Also, guys like Sterling Brown and Tony Snell will see extended minutes until Brogdon returns and have shown the ability to step up when called upon. But Beverley takes great pride in being one of the NBA's biggest pests, a super-tough, super-aggressive defender who can, and will, cause problems.

With both the San Antonio Spurs and Oklahoma City Thunder winning their final games, the Los Angeles Clippers fell to the eighth seed in the Western Conference and will be the Warriors' first-round opponent. In the Eastern Conference, the Toronto Raptors, the Philadelphia 76ers, and the Boston Celtics will fight with the Milwaukee Bucks for the opportunity to knock the Warriors off their throne.

This season, thanks to the return of Irving and Hayward, Tatum and Hayward had to adjust to different roles and bench stars like Terry Rozier had less opportunity than previous year. The Nuggets have never won the conference title in franchise history. We know what we have in the Blazers, and we've seen what Damian Lillard can do in the playoffs.

Dallas said farewell to Dirk, but Doncic brought hope to the city. Something that dates back to 2001 having lost eight consecutive first round appearances. To start, Brooklyn's guards will give the Sixers some trouble. The Thunder boasts two of the best players in the league: Russell Westbrook and Paul George, who lead the league in assists and steals respectively. On paper, they are title favorites having finished the season with the top-scoring margin in the league with the ability to run the floor and score the ball from anywhere. The Jazz were seeded No. 4 when they won a 4-versus-5 series in 2007 and 2008 - both of those coming against Houston.
