    Been waiting for this. Anyone calling for a non-Cavs/Warriors finals?

    HOU over OKC 4-2
    SAS over MEM 4-1

    BOS over CHI 4-1
    WAS over ATL 4-3
    TOR over MIL 4-2
    CLE over IND 4-0

    GSW over UTA 4-2
    SAS over HOU 4-2

    BOS over WAS 4-3

    I'd love to see anything but another rematch in the Finals but I'm not sure if it happens this year.

    Cavs are obvious, but I think people are overlooking the spurs.

    Don't really know why but I'm more interested in the NBA these last few years. Maybe since most of their stars lately seem to be decent citizens.

    Warriors are going to win no question unfortunately. And unfortunately, we are going to see another Warriors Cavs rematch. My interest in the NBA playoffs will be gone by June.

    Cav's survive.

    The Buck Raptors game is looking to be a fun series. The Greek Freak isn't intimidated by his first exposure to the playoffs.

    Seriously? The Cav's 3-1 comeback with that epic game 7 was awesome.
    I am rooting to see the best two teams Cavs/GSW play the rubber match.

    Not the Greek Freak's first playoffs. Milwaukee faced Chicago in the first round in 2015.

    The NBA should have never allowed Durant to warriors to happen

    Didn't get to watch the game as I was traveling but I'm not surprised the Raptors got their ass kicked. We consistently underperform in the playoffs. Really wanted to avoid the Bucks and the Greek Freak.

    Bucks are a weird matchup, there is no other team with their type of roster and style in the league. Tough matchup for any team and no good way to prepare for their length. I expect the Raptors to see what they did wrong, make corrections and get the win in game 2. Bucks won't shoot as well as they did in game 1. Guess it'll be a 7 game series though.

    Game 7s are our thing. So many 7 game series in the past four years during our playoff runs. I can't remember the last time or if we have won a game 1 in the last four years. Its irritating.
