NBA Conference Finals Predictions


First Round Record: (5-3) 

Conference Semi-Finals Record (2-2)


NBA Conference Finals Predictions 

Western Conference Finals

Phoenix Suns Vs Los Angeles Clippers

The Suns have been the best team in the Western Conference this season from start to finish, so it’s really no surprise to see them playing in the Conference Finals. At this current point in time we have no idea whether or not Chris Paul will be playing in the first game or at all in this series since he is out due to COVID protocols. Regardless I still believe the Suns are the better team in this matchup. They definitely need Chris Paul because he has completely turned this team around, but there is enough talent on this team to beat the Clippers. I don’t believe in the Clippers at all because they’re the Clippers. Kawhi Leonard is also injured and his status is in doubt for this series and they will need him if they want to even have a chance in this series. Even with him they really aren’t an impressive team. They lack chemistry and lose steam towards the end of games, which is going to be a huge problem against the Suns who have the exact opposite problem! I haven’t believed in the Clippers once this entire season and that won’t change in this series. The Suns are a far superior team and the Clippers are a joke to me and until they prove otherwise that is what they will always be!

Eastern Conference Finals

Milwaukee Bucks Vs Atlanta Hawks

Never in a million years did I expect to see the Atlanta Hawks in the Eastern Conference Finals, but here they are, ready to take any team they go up against! Trae Young just can’t be stopped and is starting to look like Steph Curry when he first hit the scene. Young is a sharp shooter, with the will to win it all and literally gives no fucks while doing it. The Bucks are such a weird team. The way they’ve played in the postseason, so far, has been exceptionally mediocre, but some how they still win! Charles Barkley put it best, this is the dumbest winning team in the playoffs right now. When they play it looks like for parts of the game they have no idea what in the actual fuck is going on, but then out of nowhere they may just start knocking down some shots and then out of nowhere the Bucks walk away with the win. While the Hawks have faced off against some really solid teams on defense this postseason, the Bucks are on another level simply because they are healthy, the roster is deep, and the team has chemistry. The Hawks have had a great run, but it’s going to come to an end at some point and I think this will be where it ends. The Bucks will be too much for the Hawks to handle in a seven game series and I expect to see the Bucks move on to the NBA Finals.
