So yesterday was the first day of the **NBA Playoff**, and a a lot of series came up with unpredictable outcomes. Specially the Raptors and the Clippers. Even the Cleveland game was a close call for the defending champs, but let’s be real. Will any people really think Cleveland will be handicapped against the Pacers, Raptors or Celtics?
Cleveland is Deep and sure there is no Schumper on the floor and also no pesky Deli twisting people’s ankles and knees to get the ball. However the magnificense of King James will really show up when he shuts down the other team star, whenever is Paul George, Isaiah Thomas or DeRozan.
On the other side however, the LA Clippers are a disgrace to the NBA.
<blockquote>”Clips gonna Clip”</blockquote>
And they don’t seem to disapoint, they trash a game that had no star on the opposite team with a relative healthy roster and still manage to loose.
## Looking forward
We have a lot of matchups going on on the first round my picks are the following:
1. Bulls vs Celtics – Celtics
2. Cavaliers vs Pacers – Cavs
3. Raptors vs Bucks – Raptors
4. Wizards vs Hawks – Wizards
and the west
1. Warriors vs Blazers – Warriors
2. Spurs vs Grizzlies – Spurs
3. Rockets vs Thunders – Rockets
4. Clippers vs Jazz – Jazz
Of course the big if are Clips and Raptors, which are currently shooked but I think they can bounce back.
