This post was made on Sunday January 19, 2020 so that’s what the records are from.
1.Milwaukee Bucks (38-6)
8.Brooklyn Nets (18-23)
With Kyrie Irving sitting a lot for the Nets, this series wouldn’t be too much for Giannis and the gang.
4.Boston Celtics (27-14)
5.Indiana Pacers (27-15)
Both of these teams have improved, but once Indiana gets star Victor Oladipo back, these two would have a great clash.
3.Toronto Raptors (28-14)
6.Philadelphia 76ers (28-16)
Last year’s ECSF, would be an excellent first round match up even though a lot of basketball still has to be played. But, in this series I’m picking the 76ers any day if they’re at full strength.
2.Miami Heat (29-12)
7.Orlando Magic (20-23)
An all sunshine state battle is in the first round of the playoffs. Kendrick Nunn, Jimmy Butler, and the Heat would have no problems with the Magic, though.
1.Los Angeles Lakers (34-8)
8.Memphis Grizzlies (20-22)
What a fun first round series this would be. Ja Morant and the young Grizzlies facing off versus LeBron and the Lakers.
4.Utah Jazz (29-13)
5.Dallas Mavericks (27-15)
I don’t think Utah wants to see Dallas in the first round, with the excellent play of Guard Luka Doncic, but this will be a competitive series.
3.LA Clippers (30-13)
6.Houston Rockets (26-15)
Another fun series with Kawhi Leonard and Paul George battling Russell Westbrook and James Harden for the right to get to the WCSF.
2.Denver Nuggets (29-12)
7.Oklahoma City Thunder (24-19)
Denver should dominate this series.
