NBA Playoffs 2019

As the NBA regular season winds down, it’s time to start getting excited about this year’s playoffs, where the most talented basketball players in the world are set for another shot at capturing the coveted Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy. The trophy currently resides with the Golden State Warriors who defeated Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers this past June, but with so many great teams this year, the trophy Is definitely up for grabs this postseason. With just 18 games left in the regular season, teams in the bottom half of the conferences are fighting for a shot, to either stay in the playoff race or maintain and if possible improve upon their positions within the current standings. The biggest news coming out of the NBA right now is whether or not Lebron James and his Los Angeles Lakers will be able to battle back into the playoff picture and give Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors a run for their money this postseason. However, with the current standings in the Western Conference the way they are, we would see LeBron Miss the playoffs for just the third time in his carrier, with the other two coming in his first two seasons in the League. Lebron James has been to the NBA Finals nine times in his carrier with a record 8 consecutive finals appearances, however, he has only won three out of those nine appearances. This year’s playoffs are stacking up to be very interesting with “The King” potentially watching from his couch at home and the Golden State Warriors lacking consistency we might finally see fresh faces in this year’s Championship Race.

Whale’s NBA Playoff Outlook?

The 2019 Playoff outlook is building up to be very interesting. With teams trying to secure their spot in this year’s playoff picture, all remaining games are being played as finals. This year the current playoff picture is very exciting. In the western conference it is looking like the top seated Golden State Warriors will be taking on a battling eight seed in the Los Angeles Clippers, however with many teams still In the hunt, it will be intriguing to see if the Clippers can hold on to their spot.

The six remaining sports are currently occupied by the Denver Nuggets who are currently in the two seed taking on the seventh-seeded San Antonio Spurs, the third seed Houston Rockets taking on the sixth-seeded Utah Jazz and lastly the fourth-seeded Oklahoma City Thunder taking on the fifth-seeded Portland Trail Blazers with three teams in contention (Kings, Timberwolves and Lakers) to knock out the Los Angeles Clippers for that final playoff spot. Based on the current standings it is highly unlikely that any of those three teams will take over the eighth and final spot, but as they say in sports, it’s not over until it over. Moving on to the Eastern Conference, which has had a lot of volatility within the conference as of late, with many teams moving in and out of contention week to week. We have the top-seeded Milwaukee Bucks taking on eight seeded Miami Heat, however, there is a big battle going on in that division with Charlotte and Orlando right on their heels. This is one that will definitely come down to the wire. Next up are the Toronto Raptors in the second seed taking on the Brooklyn Nets in the Seventh seed, followed by the Indiana pacer in the third spot taking on the Detroit Pistons in the sixth seed and lastly the Philadelphia 76’ers taking on the Boston Celtics in the fifth seed. This year’s playoff picture is building up to be very interesting and with just under twenty games left in the season, there is still room for changes in both conferences.
