Predicting 2018 West champion

Embiid is already out for game one but if he returns sooner than later in this series I think the 76ers will close the early the sooner Embiid gets back the better. Wade while he is old, and decline but playing Wade in the postseason could be potentially be dangerous for the 76ers especially if they are playing without Embiid portion of this series.

West Rockets 1 vs T-Wolves 8 Predict: Rockets in 6 Thunder 4 vs Jazz 5 Predict: Thunder in 6 Blazers 3 vs Pelicans 6 Predict: Pelicans in 7 Warriors 2 vs Spurs 7 Predict: Wolves are going to struggle defend the three point line they don't have to many good defenders at, and going to struggle keeping up the Rockets pace. But I do think which I predict they win a couple games for this series.

The interesting match up is Jimmy Butler vs James Harden that is going to be a great matchup. I think the X-Factor for the Rockets in this series is their bench mainly Eric Gordon, and Ryan Anderson if they get hot the entire series, or majority of the series this series could be over quickly.

Trevor Ariza who is a solid defender is going to give Wiggins fit and Wiggins isn't a good one on one player so he needs to find ways to help on the offensive end. I am torn between the Blazers vs Pelicans series because I think this series could go either way, The Pelicans got mainly well Anthony Davis to bad Cousins is out they could use him while the Pelicans running their offense through their bigs mainly AD, and somewhat Nikola.

While the Blazers running their offense with their guards CJ and of course Lillard. This series could be a potential fun, and great series. Even though it's difficult to win a game in Portland but I did predict the Pelicans to win the series in 7 like to see Anthony Davis advance to the next round.

Which series you are interest the most? What is your prediction? Sept 16, Sept 29, When doing my work bracket I only had a hard time with the Conference Finals. Sept 17, 6: Sept 26, 3: Sept 17, 3: Sept 26, 4: Philly is my pick to make it out the East. Houston will find a way to choke, so I will go with Golden State beating Philly in 7. Sept 15, Sept 25, Wooh boy those Cavs crapped the bed in game one. Indiana had a great gameplan. Start off big, then slow it down, and play tough D the rest of the way.

Sept 27, 0: Haven't watched the Rockets at all this year but been loosely following them in the standings, looking forward to getting back into basketball and following along with their playoff run, hoping to see a Houston sports trifecta with the Astros, Rockets, and Texans all winning championships. Pretty good game 1 there, Harden really shined there in the second half, when he's on he's about as impressive of a basketball player I've ever seen.

Timberwolves almost made a game out of it. Is that the same Derrick Rose that was tearing it up with the Bulls a while back? Sept 17, 2: Apr 16, 3: Dwayne Wade is a legend. Best of 5 with the return of Embiid. Pavers were an Oladipo three away from tying this game with 30 seconds to go after being down 15 after a quarter. In some sad news, the wife of Greg Popovich has passed away. Heartbreaking and I feel so terrible for him.

Watching the 76ers vs Heargsme back and forth game fun and close game almost end of third. So how about those Pacers? Bogan was on fire in the second half now Pacers lead the series Huge sweep on the road for Philly. However, the way AD is playing, this could be his championship coming out year.

The Pelicans are the first team to advance into the second round with a dominating sweep of the 3 seeded Trailblazers. Anthony Davis went off for 47 and got help by Jrue Holiday who went off for Up next Golden State?

Nice win from the Wolves finally KAT and Wiggins finally step up offensively which was the difference in the game including Rose was a huge spark of the bench. Apr 22, 2: Sept 9, Sept 27, Damn AD is just straight up beast! I did not know how good Holiday was and he made Lillard look like a bitch. I would much rather get a good ol futures match up with Simmons, Embiid and The Greak Freak going at it.

Yes, Boston has some exciting young pieces such as Tatum, Rozier and Jaylen but the Greak Freak is good enough to get his team to the second round of the playoffs. So my advancing predictions beforehand were: This is a fun payoffs so far. A lot of star power with the future meeting the past.
