The Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors will be meeting in the Western Conference Finals this year while the Cleveland Cavaliers will either be facing the Philadelphia 76ers or the Boston Celtics. This year is the first year since 2014 that the Warriors will not have home court advantage in a series for the playoffs. The Celtics are winning in the Eastern Conference Semi-final series versus the 76ers with a 3-1 lead. My pick for the Western Conference champion are the Warriors because they have too many stars that the Rockets won’t be able to guard. Also, I believe that the Warriors play together better than the Rockets do.
Now that the Eastern Conference Finals and Western Conference Finals are on their way we know that the Cavaliers will be playing the Celtics. Their first matchup was Sunday night and the Celtics surprisingly came out with a huge win. Beating the Cavaliers by around 20 points. Marcus Morris played great defense against Lebron and held him under 20 points. As I expected, the Warriors beat the Rockets in their first matchup. My predictions for these match ups are Cavaliers in 7 games and Warriors in 6 games.
