2012 NBA Playoffs: CONFERENCE Finals (6-4-12)

Now that 12 out of the previous 16 teams in the playoffs have been eliminated…. There are 4 teams left; and those teams are the Oklahoma City Thunder, San Antonio Spurs, Miami HEAT, and Boston Celtics…..

The series look like this:

.MIAMI HEAT vs Boston Celtics (series tied: 2-2)

San Antonio Spurs vs Oklahoma City Thunder (Thunder Lead 3-2)

***The way it’s currently looking, it appears that we will have a Thunder-HEAT NBA Finals coming soon…

The 3 best players left in the playoffs are:

1A: Rajon Rondo

1B: LeBron James

1C:Kevin Durant

**I can’t rate them 1,2,3 because they all have been killing teams in the playoffs .

**Rondo just had a 44pt, 10ast, 8reb game…. By far the best game out of anyone in the playoffs in my opinion.

My top 5 players in the playoffs OVERALL (includes players on teams who’ve been eliminated)

1.LeBron James (29pts, 9reb, 5ast)

2.Rajon Rondo (17pts, 12ast, 7reb)

3.Kobe Bryant: (30pts, 5reb, 5ast)

4.Kevin Durant: 27pts, 8reb, 4ast

5.Tony Parker/Dwyane Wade: (Parker: 19pts, 7ast) (Wade: 22pts, 4reb, 4ast)

*Notable injuries: Chris Bosh( out), Ray Allen( playing but has injured ankle), Pierce(playing but has knee injury)

NBA Playoffs Week 2

The NBA playoffs is currently in it’s 1st round and thus far only 3 series out of eight are competitive. Those series are: Atlanta Hawks vs Boston Celtics and Memphis Grizzlies vs Los Angeles Clippers; and Chicago Bulls vs Phillidelphia 76ers.

If you don’t know much about the NBA playoff structure… Well a team must win 4 games and it could take a team as long as 7 games if the series goes back and forth.

The top 5 players thus far in the playoffs in my opinion are in this order:

1.Kobe Bryant

2.LeBron James

3.Andrew Bynum

4.Russell Westbrook

5.Kevin Durant

This is the race in all the series so far:

Spurs vs Jazz (Spurs lead 2-0)

Thunder vs Mavericks (Thunder up 3-0)

Lakers vs Nuggets (Lakers up 2-0)

Grizzlies vs Clippers(Series tied 1-1)

Bulls vs 76ers (tied 1-1)

HEAT vs Knicks (HEAT up 3-0)

Pacers vs Magic (Pacers up 2-1)

Hawks vs Celtics (series tied 1-1)

The 3 top three teams that have looked the most impressive in my opinion are:

1.San Antonio Spurs

2.Miami HEAT

3.Lakers/Thunder

It’s too early to really say but I firmly believe that the NBA Finals will be The Los Angeles Lakers vs Miami HEAT

Injuries:

Top 5 player Derrick Rose is out for the entire playoffs
