NBA Conference Finals Playoff Predictions

Western Conference

Dallas Mavericks Vs Golden State Warriors

Luka Doncic has been the man this postseason and has led the Mavericks all the way to the conference finals when nobody thought that was possible, including myself. Overall, the Mavericks have a solid team, but it’s completely built around Luka and while that has worked thus far, they have a big task ahead of them with the Warriors. The Warriors have played great this postseason and seem to be playing with a chip on their shoulders because nobody thinks they’re as good as they once were, but so far, they are proving everyone wrong. Steph is knocking down three pointers, Draymond is getting dirty in the paint, Klay is getting healthier, and they have a bunch of young guys stepping it up! The Warriors have been here before and know what it takes to win and I think that gives them a huge advantage in this matchup! The Mavericks will make this a tough series, but the Warriors depth and experience will take them on into the NBA finals, once again!

Eastern Conference

Boston Celtics Vs Miami Heat

The Celtics have been a silent killer this season because nobody expected them to be this good and be this lethal in the postseason. Nobody looked at Jason Tatum as a superstar player ready to stab the dagger through each of his opponents hearts this season, but that’s exactly what he has done. The Celtics are one of the most complete teams from top to bottom and they have an all around game where they can keep up with on offense, but will lock you down on defense. The Heat are a great offensive team, but they lack on the defensive side of the ball. Jimmy Butler has also had a phenomenal postseason and will be difficult for the Celtics to stop, but if they are able to limit the scoring of everyone else on the Heat that may help them gain the edge in this series. Both teams are on fire, but the Celtics are battle tested and just took out the defending champs. I don’t think the Heat will be able to withstand the Celtics defense for an entire seven game series and the Celtics will wear them down and run up the score. Jason Tatum has proven to be clutch this season and looks like he wants to make his mark in this league and this postseason run is helping him make that case!
