Predictions for first round playoff matchups in the Western Conference | After The Buzzer Predictions for first round playoff matchups in the Western Conference | After The BuzzerI’M done the playoff, matchups are determined, we don’t know where, but we know who’s playing at. We know we’re starting on Saturday and there is your Western Conference playoff picture Warriors playing the Clippers rockets taking on the Jazz, Blazers Thunder and nuggets face the Spurs. I will tell you this thanks to Jose for handing us as of 12:25 Eastern this evening we had a completely different set of match up 20 minutes later we got. This is been an exciting night for sure. What do guys like what you’re saying in the western conference Portland OKC, even Spurs thanking upsetting the Denver Nuggets and not thinking too many of our eyes? You would even consider that an upset when you stay up pop team is the underdog in the playoffs. So there’s a lot of intriguing matchups that can go either way outside of the Golden State. Warriors shopping fill handle pretty easily the other series are in the Western Conference or are going to be difficult. I agree with you, except the one eight series, those going to be watch with that good matchups. I don’t really, but not really intrigued by anything in the East but the west and should be great. Where are you guys at, but just so they’re just right now, they’re done right now over the last half of the year has been the best defensive team in the league and Utah’s offense as improve Donovan Mitchell has been a lot more efficient. Joe Ingles has been great. I think that can be an interesting series I’ll take Pockets, but I don’t think it’s going to be easy on that series. I think that’s going to be a very good series, but I’m looking forward to the regard matchup with Damian Lillard in and Russell Westbrook. So here we go here. We go yeah I like when the best players go at each other, everything’s happy about it. It’S not upset, I think OKC will win this series. This won’t be considered upset only because OKC is a lower seat, but I believe they’re, the better team as compared to what Portland is putting on the court do today. I just want to see for the meeting, but Portland tried to lose tonight. They played six guys, they said everybody down they clean. He did not want to play Oklahoma City, and now you have to go convince your team, even though we were clearly afraid of them. We were like that bird’s-eye. Obviously in Popovich, I trust and Chauncey. You live in Denver very, very fearful of this matchup pawlovich experience that DeMar DeRozan and you got you know you got to to all stars of pretty much for that team, with Aldrich no experience Denver and into the playoffs. You know they they haven’t been through this with the exception, obviously Paul Millsap they’re laying on his experience, but this could be a long good Siri playing at home playoff atmosphere where they played great all year long. So this is serious. I can go set it cuz. I can see the it experience coming out of them when they go on the road, but I think they’ll be very comfortable. If this goes game 7, though, is the Venice of the Spurs Michelle Beadle, Paul Pierce, Chauncey Billups, and Stan Van Gundy break down the Western Conference playoff bracket and predict how the first round will play out.
