Don’t Count these NBA Teams Out

The regular season is just a warm up for some NBA teams. Let’s look at some sleepers that we should not count out yet.

Los Angeles Lakers

This team seems to always be up and down but when it matters they will more than often come through. Last year they were a fringe playoff team all year but made it as a seven seed through the play-in games. They ended up beating the No. 2 Grizzlies and then won the next round as well. This year the No. 1 and 2 teams are beatable as well in Minnesota and Oklahoma City.

Golden State Warriors

The Warriors are a similar team to the Lakers. They both have some of the top players in the league and a ton of experience but they both fall asleep in the regular season. Last year the Warriors also won a playoff series. Don’t be surprised if one or both of the Warriors and Lakers upset a top seed in the playoffs.

Miami Heat

As we saw last year, the Heat made it all the way to the NBA Finals from the play-in games. This year they will likely find themselves in the play in again and everyone sleeps on them until they upset someone. It could be the same story again this year in a weaker Eastern Conference.
