The NBA’s Eastern Conference Playoffs Prove to be Very Interesting

Curran Gilster, Online Editor

The NBA playoffs have begun and they have been action packed so far. A great series between Cleveland and Indiana  provided great amusement to viewers. Lebron James put on a great performance carrying the Cavaliers to a victory in seven games. But Victor Oladipo fought valiantly in this series giving the Lebron led Cavs some issues.

The 76er’s also played very well against a not so good Miami Heat team.The 76er’s were led by Ben Simmons, Joel Embid, and J.J Redick and handled the Heat with relative ease in five games. The Heat were without a doubt overmatched against the young 76er’s.

The Raptors faced off against the Wizards in the East and provided a very interesting series that kept fans on the edge of their seats. Most of the games were quite close but in the end the Raptors won the series in six games. But the Wizards showed that they are competitive by giving the Raptors a harder time than expected. The Raptors with the dynamic duo of Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan proved to be too much for the Wizards and they will advance to play the Cavaliers.

The Celtics defeated the Bucks in seven games without their top players. Kryie Irving and Gordan Hayward are both out with injuries leaving the Celtics to play with their young players like Jaylen Brown and Terry Rozier. These young men played very well for the Celtics helping deliver and first round series win to Boston. The Greek Freak could not carry the Buck single handily to the second round which may have come to surprise some Milwaukee fans.

In the second round the Cavaliers will look to beat Toronto again but will most likely struggle because of the lack of support coming from other players on the Cavs. They can’t beat Toronto if Lebron is the only person on the court scoring. The Celtics will face the 76er’s will play and hopefully give us a close and exciting series.

Whatever happens, the Eastern Conference final will without a doubt be very exciting.
