Thought I'd get a playoff thread going. I know the Suns aren't in it but there are plenty of ex-Suns around the league to root for as well as some players to root for or against that can impact the free agent market this summer. I'll list all of the 1st round matchups below. The winners of the #1 vs #8 series will face the winners of the #4 vs #5 series and the #2 vs #7 series will face the winners of the #3 vs #6 series. I've listed them in that order so you can see potential second round matchups. All series are best of 7 games and the higher seeded team has homecourt advantage for every first round matchup this year. Out West this is how the first round looks.... #1 Warriors vs #8 Clippers #4 Rockets vs #5 Jazz #2 Nuggets vs #7 Spurs #3 Blazers vs #6 Thunder Here is how things will look in the East... #1 Bucks vs #8 Pistons #4 Celtics vs #5 Pacers #2 Raptors vs #7 Magic #3 76ers vs #6 Nets Thought I'd add that the Bucks had the best record in the league and will have homecourt advantage throughout the playoffs, regardless of who they play. The Raptors finished with a better record than any team in the West so if they make it to the NBA Finals then they would have homecourt advantage throughout the Finals as well. I think that will be very important and help whichever team makes it out of the East. That gives both the Bucks and Raptors some help if they do make it that far. Any talk, predictions, whatever is welcome. I'll put my predictions in a separate post.
