Vote: How do you expect each NBA playoff first-round series to end?
There have been two games played in each of the first-round series in this year’s NBA playoffs.
Some teams, like the eighth-seeded Chicago Bulls, have jumped out to a surprising 2-0 lead. The Boston Celtics will have to win four of the next five games in order to move on to the Eastern Conference quarterfinals.
The Cleveland Cavaliers experienced a small scare from the Indiana Pacers in Game 1 but handled business in Game 2 and took a commanding 2-0 lead. The Washington Wizards took care of home court against the Atlanta Hawks, behind two 32-point performances from All-Star point guard John Wall.
Out West, the Golden State Warriors dominated the Portland Trail Blazers in Game 2 with Kevin Durant gettting the night off for cautionary purposes. Kawhi Leonard and his San Antonio Spurs have been cruising by the Memphis Grizzlies, causing David Fizdale to go on postgame rants.
How do you think the rest of the first round will play out?
Game 3 between the Cavs-Pacers, Raptors-Bucks and Spurs-Grizzlies will take place Thursday night. Both Indiana and Memphis will look to prevent a 3-0 series hole.
