2014 NBA Playoffs Preview: 4-5 Match Up

Well Day 1 of the NBA playoffs is in the books and most of my predictions look to be in jeopardy. The Thunder were the only home team to win, with the Pacers, Clippers and Raptors all relinquishing home-court advantage. Here’s hoping that that trend does not continue with today’s games!

2014 NBA Playoffs Preview: 3-6 Match Up

The two 3-6 match-ups are rumored to be the best series’ in their respective conferences. I, of course, being a Rockets fan, believe that the Rockets-Blazers match up is the most interesting series, but hopefully not because it is close. Anyhow, more on that later.

This is a rematch of last year’s match-up, except that the Clippers hold home court by virtue of winning the regular season series 3-1 after the two teams finished with identical records on the year.

nba playoffs preview: 3-6 matchup

This should be one exciting series. Scoring is the modus operandi of both teams and both franchises are enjoying one of their best seasons ever.
