Forums - Sports Discussion - 2020 NBA Playoffs - Conference Finals

Well, guess there's no choice but to admit I was totally wrong about the Heat-Bucks series. Heat are a much better unit that I expected, and the Bucks are... I'm not even sure what to say about them right now. What a mess.

Still have Celtics coming out of the east and Clippers from the west. The most interesting series will still be 'The Battle for L.A.', which unfortunately won't take place in L.A. this year.

Well at least we will have one game 7 in the quarterfinals all the other series will probably be over in five games.



I think the Rockets can manage one more game before the Lakers inevitably close it out.
I do think the other series will finish in 5 games; Coming back from a 3-1 whole against the Jazz has taken its mental toll on this team and I don't see them having enough left in the tank to try and mount another comeback against a far superior team in the Clippers.

Celtics-Raptors game 7! Here we gooo!!!



Well, we are going to have a new champion now.
Both Conference Finals match ups are shaping up to be absolute heavyweight bouts.

I like the Lakers in the semi finals.



Hard2Kill Nuggets!



The bubble has brought a lot of teams who came to make a statement:

1. Miami takes out the Bucks
2. Denver drags the Clippers to Game 7
3. Oklahoma drags the Rockets to Game 7
4. Portland plays the best basketball in the restart before running out of gas
5. Dallas has a strong series against the Clippers despite losing Porzingis

Maybe most of them couldn't finish off their prey, but they sure did make a run at better teams.



Man, if the Nuggets climb out of back to back 3-1 holes, that'll be mighty impressive.



The heat are very underrated. Now I am biased since I am a huge Miami fan, but for people to still pick the celtics over a team that nearly swept the “best” team in the Est on paper.

Celtics vs Bucks? Who would win?

Heat have an exploding rookie combo of Herro and Nunn, and the 3rd best 3 pt shooter statistically in the NBA(possibly 2nd). And an All star in Bam and Jimmy. Why are they expected to lose?
