I'm rooting for the Nets but Golden State will probably take it again.



Around the Network

Well, the first game of the playoffs has come and gone and we've already got an upset!
The 6th seed Brooklyn Nets steal Game 1, and with it, home court advantage, in convincing fashion from the 3rd seed Philadelphia 76ers. Now Philly is gonna have to respond by taking Game 2 and one of the two games in Brooklyn if they want to regain home court.

Now, onto the Magic and Raptors!

The only lower seed that is a lock to make it out of the first round is the Thunder. I come back and make further predictions once the second round starts.



Got ourselves a good one in Toronto!

Two games, two upsets.
The 7th Seed Magic managed to hang on and steal home court advantage from the 2nd Seed Raptors.

The Eastern Conference side of the playoffs is up to an interesting start.
Now we turn our attention to the Western Conference.
Clippers-Warriors, and then Spurs-Nuggets.

The Warriors' biggest enemy in their quest to 3-peat is themselves. After going to the NBA Finals 4 straight years and and winning 3 of them, including the last 2, is that same hunger, desire, urgency, and will to win still there? Are they still hungry? Do they still want it? Or do they not care as much as they used to because after 3 championships (2 for Kevin Durant) they've already gotten their fill?
