It’s that magical time of year again. A time when the best of the best go up against each other for multiple games in a week. Yes, I am talking about the NBA Playoffs.

This season, the playoffs bring fans exciting individual match-ups in both Conferences.

In the Eastern Conference, you have LeBron James against Paul George, as the Cleveland Cavaliers face off against the Indiana Pacers. No one will forget the match-up of the two MVP favorites, James Harden and Russell Westbrook, as their teams (the Houston Rockets and Oklahoma City Thunder) square off.

Other fun series to watch will be the Toronto Raptors facing off against the young, up and coming Milwaukee Bucks, and the Los Angeles Clippers facing off against the Utah Jazz, a series that most people are considering a “pick ’em”.

For predictions, here is how I see all of the first round match-ups going:

Eastern Conference

Celtics over Bulls in 6 games

Cavaliers over Pacers in 5 games

Raptors over Bucks in 5 games

Wizards over Hawks in 5 games

Western Conference

Warriors over Trail Blazers in 5 games

Spurs over Grizzlies in 6 games

Rockets over Thunder in 6 games

Clippers over Jazz in 7 games

The 2017 NBA Playoffs begin Saturday April 15th, and are sure to bring excitement, nerves, and thrilling action to fans over the coming two months.
