For the first time in a long time it seems like its a pretty good playoff set. A lot of talented players and good teams in this one. I don't think we'll see any boring sweeps in the first round anymore. Toronto-Washington, maybe 6 games in Toronto's favor. Cleveland-Indiana, difficult to predict this one Indiana is a strange team this season they did better than expected with Oladipo, maybe Cleveland in 7. Philadelphia-Miami I think could go to 7 with Embiid out, but Philly should still come through. Sucks that Kyrie Irving is out, Celtics-Bucks should still be a close one. I think it will go to 7, I'm leaning toward the Bucks even though they haven't impressed me too much this season. This is where I can see an upset most likely happening. In the West, Rockets in probably 6. The Thunder and Jazz is a strange one. I think this will be OKC in 7. Melo being inconsistent doesn't help them and their bench is on/off with their scoring. Portland-New Orleans is a fun one. Amazing back-court vs an amazing front-court. Portland should survive but I think this could go to 7 since Anthony Davis is an amazing player that can probably pull out some difficult wins for NO. Warriors-Spurs lol, I don't know. Not that interested in this series but at the very least it should go to 6 with Curry out. No Leonard kind of sucks, it would have been a different story if the Spurs had him. Probably Warriors in 6, but won't be surprised if this goes to 7.
Whatever happens I think 2018 will be an interesting playoffs compared to the previous seasons. All 16 teams look entertaining.
