So I go 3 for 4 with the Spurs as my BIG loss but they did deserve to lose that series. Either way the Spurs/Thunder will have their hands full with a healthy Curry! I can't wait for this series to start and the Eastern Conference finals also. The Cavs look like the favorite for most. Let's see what will have as I tell you the future in the next round.



Eastern Conference Finals

1. Cleveland Cavaliers vs 2. Toronto Raptors


Everyone wanted the Heat but I had the Raptors with the home court. They have finally got over the hump and I expected them to go far once they did. Biyombo has stepped in perfectly and with Derozan and Lowry struggling at times this is the guy they need to step up and fill the defensive holes. On the other side of the ball the Cavs have been perfect so far. The problem is King James and company have not played anyone like the Raptors yet. Would of been a fun series is the Raptors didn't play 6 more games plus 3 overtime games more than the Cavs. The Raptors should be flat but the Cavs might also with the long rest. If there is any game they can steal to get momentum its game 1. Tired or not you have to say the Raptors will win at least on home game. In the end the Cavs should cruise to the NBA Finals lead by the King.

Prediction:  Cleveland Cavaliers win the series 4-1

Western Conference Finals

1. Golden State Warriors vs 3. Oklahoma City Thunder

Should be another great series to watch. The two best run and gun teams in the league going head to head. The Thunder has a little more confidence now by beating the Spurs. Durant has been simply amazing. The key will be Westbrooks inconsistent play. Yes he scores a ton but misses many shots and always seems to turn the ball over at the wrong time. Also if they do not out shoot the Warriors in free throws they have no chance. Steph and the boys looked great in the last series over the Blazers. They have not missed a step with Curry out and they should be ready for this series. Like I said already, the two best run and gun teams. The only problem is the distance between #1 and #2 is BIG. Warriors flat out better and like I said a 1000 times, a player like Westbrook will never win a ring with that kind of ball hogging.

Prediction: Golden State Warriors win the series 4-2
