Eastern Conference Playoffs Preview

The NBA playoffs are here so let’s do a preview of the Eastern Conference in this one. We’ll breakdown the favorite, sleepers, and greatest question mark.

The Favorite

The Boston Celtics are the heavy favorites in the East. They won the most games by far in the regular season and have the best group of seven players in the league. Unless they get majorly upset, then Boston will be seen as the betting favorites throughout the playoffs. Boston has all the tools to win the championship and make it to the finals, especially with the talent gap compared to any team in the conference.

Sleeper

In the East with Boston such a big favorite, it’s hard to choose a sleeper. Miami is always a good pick, if they beat Chicago tonight, but they would have to play Boston first. Another pick is the Knicks who have looked great, even without Julius Randle. It’s hard to imagine them losing a seven-game series.

Biggest Question

The health of Giannis is the biggest question. For most of the season Milwaukee was the second choice to come out of the East but now they could be upset in the first round. Indiana has owned Milwaukee this year and we don’t know when Giannis will play in the that series, if at all.
