Leer en español: Estas son nuestras predicciones para los Playoffs de la NBA

The most exciting phase of the NBA has begun: the Playoffs. The best teams of the regular season will face each other to be the champions of this 2020. Here at Latam Post we tell you how the Playoffs are shaping up and how far we see each team go.

Western Conference:

Los Angeles Lakers vs Portland Trailblazers

Final score: 4-2 in favor of the Lakers

The Trail Blazers are coming off a winning streak, eliminating their competition, the Grizzlies, from entering the Playoffs. Nor should they take away the two 60-point games in a row that their ace, Damian Lillard achieved. However, this will not be enough to overcome Lebron and his Lakers. You have to remember that James has never lost in the first round of the playoffs.

Where do we see the Lakers ?: Minimal, in the conference final
Where do we see Portland ?: Eliminated in the first round.

Houston Rockets vs Oklahoma City Thunder

Final score: 4-3 in favor of the Thunder

Although Houston has one of the most gifted offensive players in the league in Harden, the Oklahoma City Thunder finished this season with a winning record against the Houston team. Additionally, Russell Westbrook's injury is a serious injury for a team struggling to rebound.

Where do we see the Rockets ?: Eliminated in the first round.
Where do we see OKC ?: Eliminated in the second round by the Lakers

Denver Nuggets vs Utah Jazz

Final score: 4-3 in favor of Nuggets

This may be the closest first-round game in the playoffs. Both teams boast two of the best centers in the league, Gobert on the Jazz and Nikola Jokic on the Nuggets. However, with a 3-1 record in the regular season, Denver will most likely take the win.


Where do we see the Jazz ?: Eliminated in the first round
Where do we see the Nuggets ?: Eliminated in the second round by the Mavericks or Clippers

Dallas Mavericks vs Los Angeles Clippers

Final score: 4-3 in favor of the Mavericks

The X factor in this playoff series is Luka Doncic. We've never seen the young player in the playoffs and it's true that the Clippers have a better regular-season record (as well as a 3-0 winning record this season against Dallas) than the Mavericks. However, it is also true that Luka has achieved records that no player has at his age. Will he be able to show his face in his first playoff appearance? We hope so

Where do we see the Clippers ?: Eliminated in the first round.

Where do we see the Mavericks ?: Conference final against the Lakers

Eastern Conference:

Milwaukee Bucks vs Orlando Magic

Final score: 4-0 in favor of the Bucks

There is no competition here. With the best record of the regular season and arguably the league MVP on their team, the Bucks will undoubtedly be at least their conference champions.


Where do we see the Bucks ?: Playing NBA Finals

Where do we see the Magic ?: Eliminated in the first round

Pacers vs Heat

Final score: 4-2 in favor of the Heat

The Heat have a 3-1 winning record in the regular season against the Pacers, as well as a pool of players who are not stars, but who are much more consistently consistent than the Pacers "non-stars."


Where do we see the Heat ?: Eliminated in the second round by the Bucks
Where do we see the Pacers ?: Eliminated in the first round

Boston Celtics vs Philadelphia 76ers

Final score: 5-0 in favor of the Celtics

The absence of Ben Simmons, the 76ers' star guard, is what hurts them the most in this matchup. In the regular season they are 3-1 against the Celtics, but without Simmons, it is very difficult for them to beat them again.


Where Do We See The Celtics ?: Conference Finals Against The Bucks
Where do we see the 76ers ?: Eliminated in the first round

Toronto Raptors vs Brooklyn Nets

Final score: 4-2 in favor of the Raptors

Last year's champions have everything to get past the first round. Although they are suffering from the absence of Kawhi Leonard, their ace last year, without Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving the Nets' chances of winning are slim to none.


Where do we see the Raptors ?: Eliminated in the second round by the Celtics
Where do we see the Nets ?: First-round eliminated by the Raptors
