NBA Playoffs First-Round Schedule is Set

The field is set and the NBA Season has officially come to a close. 16 teams start a journey this Saturday in hopes of becoming champions. Lebron James will attempt to lead his Cavaliers to their third straight NBA Finals while he personally seeks his seventh straight.

The Warriors will look to avenge a horrific memory of losing afoot of a 3-1 lead in last year’s NBA Finals against the Cavs. With Kevin Durant on their side he to is familiar with the bad fortune of losing a 3-1 series lead as he did in the Western Conference Finals as a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder.

There is a new top dog in the Eastern Conference. The Boston Celtics are officially entering the Playoffs as the number one seed in the Eastern Conference. Isaiah Thomas or known as “Mr. Fourth Quarter” will look to lead his team deep into the East and upset the Cavaliers from repeating as champs.

The great debate of who should get MVP could be determined no better than whoever wins the series out of the Houston Rockets or Oklahoma City Thunder. James Harden and Russell Westbrook will square off against each other. In an MVP race too close to call can we just say winner takes all based on this series?
