Playoffs are Approaching

Playoffs are Approaching

Matt Hammad

The NBA regular season is quickly approaching its end with each team only having from 4 to 5 games left. The West is almost completely set for the post season with every team being a few game apart and the Golden State Warriors and San Antonio Spurs sitting firmly on top.

The East on the other hand has been a clash of titans with the Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics battling for that prime first seed. These two teams played each other in Boston on April 5th and the Cavs took the W pretty well handedly. The next day the Celtics played another playoff contender, the Atlanta Hawks and couldn’t pull it out there either. So the Cavaliers have a pretty firm lead in the East as of now.

The Cavaliers and Warriors have seen each other in the Finals for the last two years and each year a different victor as come out on top. Many people say it will turn out the same way but other say the Spurs will be an upset or many the Cavaliers are just not what they used to be.
