The Eastern Conference seems far less interesting than the West, but still some intriguing match-ups in play.
The NBA regular season has come to an end and now we’ve got the marathon of playoff basketball to take us to Mid-June. The Western Conference was stacked as usual during the regular season and provides multiple options for teams that could end up representing in the Finals.
Three weeks left in the regular season, and the NBA playoff picture is starting to shape up. With that in mind let’s look at the potential first round match-ups and rank them from least interesting to most.
Last night, like every NBA night, morphed into a sweaty, LeBron James symposium. And the firewall between factions is rather defined. He’s either a chump who cheated his team out of a win, or he’s a victim of fate or faulty wiring, a hardwood martyr who can’t get a break.
In a rematch of last years final which went 7 games, the San Antonio Spurs square off against the Miami Heat and Tony Parker and company hope to prevent LeBron and the Heat from winning their third consecutive NBA championship.
The Miami Heat are going to have quite a challenge in front of them from the opening tip of Game 4 in the Eastern Conference Finals. Miami must find a way to once again play a near perfect half against the defensive-minded Indiana Pacers.
Anthony first hurt his left shoulder on April 14 against the Pacers. Now it seems he played the entire playoff run — 12 games — with a partially torn labrum.
The Miami Heat and Chicago Bulls are getting ready for Friday’s pivotal game 3.
John Schmeelk: The chances that coach Mike Woodson ends up looking good for this decision are slim to none.
With the game, series, or season on the line, would you rather have Carmelo Anthony or Kevin Durant on your squad?
