Detroit Pistons vs. Milwaukee Bucks: Series Price And Pick

The Clippers won their season finale, yet it didn't matter.

Embiid talks so much trash on the court, and it's time for him to back it up when the matters most. Based on the way last season went, the milestone game will come late in the conference-semifinal round or early in the conference-final round. They had home-court advantage in all four finals against Cleveland, but Milwaukee and Toronto both finished with better records and would host Games 1 and 2 if they win the East. Doc Rivers merits consideration for that achievement alone. They will need all the rest they can get if they play Boston in the second round, so I don't expect them to take Detroit lightly, even if Griffin is still banged up. Since their dynasty first began in 2014, the Warriors have dropped a total of two games in four first-round playoff series. Bledsoe, on the other hand, hopes to have a short memory after last year's playoff disaster and continue to show why he earned that 4-year, $70 million dollar extension he inked a couple months ago.

"That was the Sterling game".

He said he knew he had to just take the hate.

"I sacrificed a lot of s-- to be here and to change my game up to be with these guys". The distractions were just overwhelming that night. "I've been roaming my whole life".

"They got an an all-world scorer in Lou Williams who can get it going at any time in the game from anywhere". Philadelphia has struggled all season against quick, scoring point guards like D'Angelo Russell. In the previous three meetings, Orlando has averaged a tick below 113 points per game and took two of the four regular-season contests overall. "I just want to play great basketball every second I'm on the court, and that was a ideal opportunity for me to do so". "Antics and all that kind of stuff is likely to happen, but nothing distracts me from playing basketball".

Steph Curry has a foot injury that is being described as "minor" ... but no injury below either of Curry's knees is ever really "minor".

With the Oklahoma City Thunder and San Antonio Spurs closing their respective seasons with wins, the Warriors' first-round opponent is confirmed: They'll play the LA Clippers. He's not going to outscore or outshoot Curry. Kerr was committed to not sacrificing the health of his team down the stretch just to secure the No. 1 seed. The Pistons were swept in the Conference Finals before the Bulls cruised to a 4-1 win over Magic Johnson and the Los Angeles Lakers in their maiden NBA Finals appearance.

This season, thanks to the return of Irving and Hayward, Tatum and Hayward had to adjust to different roles and bench stars like Terry Rozier had less opportunity than previous year.

Everybody is eager to see Cousins on the big stage at last. Meanwhile, the biggest threat to the Warriors could be coming in the second round. "It's unfortunate what happened in New Orleans with the injury and everything".

The 30-year-old was one of the most popular players in the league during his time with the Thunder.

"Defensively, we have been getting after it", Harden said.

The Rockets top these rankings despite being the fourth seed in the West. In addition, should they overcome the Jazz, they are now on a collision course with the Golden State Warriors. What a insane run for Milwaukee, can we take a moment to appreciate that?

Los Angeles realizes the challenges of winning in such an imposing venue.

Last year's deep playoff run was built on the emergence of young stars Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, important contributions from numerous bench players and the veteran leadership and defensive solidity of Al Horford.
