It’s mid-April, and hearing that as an NBA fan is music to your ears. The playoffs are now underway and this year includes a lot of competitive teams from around the league, all of which are fighting towards that finals trophy.

If you have not been following the NBA this season, then you are certainly missing out. Between all of the dramatic finishes, immense scoring, and pure skill posed by the players, there is no reason why anyone wouldn’t want to join in on the action.

The playoffs feature eight of the best teams from the east and west conference, and a best of seven series to see who will move on to the next round. The first round is expected to bring a lot of drama, as we see intense matchups like the Jazz vs. Clippers, and Thunder vs. Rockets just to name a few.

Fortunately, for NBA insiders and analysts from around the league, most of the pre-season predictions are in tact as the Cavaliers and Warriors are still looking like the teams to beat. But it will not be easy to do, as certain teams like the San Antonio Spurs, and Boston Celtics stand in the way of a finals rematch.

The Warriors finished with the best regular season record at 67-15, due largely in part to the addition of all star Kevin Durant. But Cleveland has not been shy in the free agency market either, as they have acquired key players Deron Williams and Kyle Korver.

The first round of the playoffs are a truly exciting time for basketball fans everywhere, as we see home court advantages start to play a huge effect in determining the outcome of games. I am sure we will see many surprising finishes and even upsets throughout the next two weeks.

MVP candidates Russell Westbrook from the Thunder, James Harden from the Rockets, Kawhi Leonard from the Spurs, and Lebron James from the Cavaliers. They are all hungry for the award, and destined to show us why they deserve it.
