    Prediction:
    Utah - Memphis 4-2
    Phoenix - LAL 2-4
    Denver - Portland 3-4
    LAC Dallas 4-3

    Philadelphia - Washington 4-2
    NY - Atlanta 2-4
    Milwaukee - Miami 4-3
    Brooklyn - Boston 4-2

    For long time we haven't had such good first round match ups. Can't wait for the beginning.

    Some really nice matchups.

    Utah - Memphis 4-0
    the question for me is how far can Utah really go this year.

    Phoenix - LAL 4-3
    I'll go for a surprise here. Lakers aren't the youngest out there and I like this PHX team a lot

    Denver - Portland 4-1
    Sure Lillard and McCollum will have their nights, but overall Denver is in my opinion one of the best teams out there.

    LAC - Dallas 4-2
    I'd prefer Luka getting to the next round, but honestly can't remember a team with as much defensive potential as Clippers. One of the extinct ways to destroy someone would be Batum, GP and Kawai as well as throwing Beverley at Dončič all within a quarter.

    Philly - Washington 4-0
    NY - Atlanta 3-4
    Sure this is the best result NY achieved in XY years, but Atlanta looks strong and balanced.

    Milwaukee - Miami 1-4
    I'm betting on a repeat from last year.

    Brooklyn - Boston 2-4
    If Boston is healthy, they're in my opinion the team in the east.

    Good and spicy predictions, Josko

    Just to add for you Boston note - They've lost Jaylen Brown for rest of season which is a gigantic loss for them. I think incompensable unfortunately.

    wow Celtics without their second star player that is out for season is team in east

    In all nba podcast celtics fans is so devastating how badly their team played this season and badly underperformed.Atleast there in europe is who believes in them.

    Must watch serries for me Bucks-Heat Clippers-Mavs and Lakers-Suns i can see dramatical up and down shit happenning in them.

    Serrie im not watching Knicks-Hawks nothing interesting here to follow.

    save bet Nuggets-Blazers going all 7 games again.

    Gonna be tough series for Nuggets...Three of their best guards are down and outside of Jokic and Porter there just aren't reliable scorers. Jokic will do his thing, Porter will score enough, but rest of the team without Murray, Barton and Dozier (would mean incredibly a lot defensively against Dame and CJ) don't have enough firepower. They are forced to play rookies and two way players significant minutes, that's tough. But Nuggets are a resilient team, they are capable of putting up a good fight.

    Doncic is going to put Clippers on a tough test, and this series might break them for good. If Hardaway and Porzingis are going to shoot the ball well, Clippers will be in trouble.

    After first games some impression:
    Brooklyn - Boston should be save for Nets
    Denver no chance against Portland, 1 max 2. games they can take without any conribution from guards
    Milwaukee Heat will be war, I gave prognosis that Bucks will advance, after game one my mind changed and I'm closer to thinking that Miami will take it even they lost It's just a feeling
    Doncic is incredible and Dallas mega-sympathic - I cheer for them - this could go down to the wire

    The level has gone significantly up this season, which makes the playoffs more interesting than ever before...

    My prediction would be that the which will be promoted to the next round, will be the Nets, the Bucks, the Hawks and the Wizards (!!! my prediction for the 1st round surprising promotion over Phily) from the East and then the Mavs, the Lakers, the Jazz and the Blazers from the the Western conference.

    I expect the 2nd round matches to be a real war for all the 8 teams which will be promoted.

    I believe the Bucks chose to have the most difficult path in these playoffs, so that they can use the matching against the Heat and then the Nets in the 2nd round in order to strengthen up and tight together the team as much as possible... They could have a far more easy opponent in the 1st round if they would have dropped the last regular season game to the Heat, because they would then be against NY in the 1st round, but they didn't... They gave everything they could to win that game despite that they new it would cause to be against the Heat in the 1st round.

    My opinion is that for the games of the series which will follow, the Bucks will have more convincing victories... This is due to their long shooting being to the lowest possible level in the 1st game, which allowed the Heat to stay close in the score for the entire game... It wouldn't be normal for this bad shooting day to happen again now... Would it?

    Even if the Bucks would have been lower than their shooting average yesterdy, they would still have won the game by quite a margin, but shooting (and then on "open shots") only 16% from deep, it's just not normal... Not with Middleton, Forbes, Portis, Divincenzo and Holiday (all 40+ % long shooters) in the game shooting open shots and missing them... Just a bad shooting day, which the (absolutely stellar) defense saved... Just my two cents.

    Middleton wouldnt have hit that game winner neither in 2019 or 2020 playoofs and bucks lost similiar game endings in 2020 vs Heat.

    Giannis is best player in nba offence+defence for first 46minutes,but he needs somebody close in last 2minutes. I think Middleton improvement and adding Holiday is diffrence between Bucks 2019,2020 and this Bucks 2021 team.

    Both serries vs Raptors 2019 and Heat 2020 Bucks was leading more than loosing,but was loosing all game endings.

    This 2021 Bucks will not lose all game endings.This is best Giannis bucks team in playoofs atmposphere.

    But still Bucks road is brutal Heat-Nets-Sixers nobody have harder road to nba finals.

    If the plan is to win it all, then you've got to be able to win against anybody anyway... It additionally makes your victory (provided you can achieve to execute the plan successfully of course) worth even more.

    Shawshank bro, you should reconsider watching Knicks-Hawks series. This was hell of a game. This series will be a dog fight in every game.

    i watched Lakers-Suns and needed rest from basketball and waited for Valanciunas teams game.I love basketball but cant watch all 8 serries have to make difficult desicions

    So far all games 1 was very good indeed.Fans makes big diffrence.

    Watched last 5 minutes of Knicks-Hawks game when i saw that score is 1 point game.

    Bogdan was very good in his 34min +17 according to stats when he was on the floor by far the best in hawks team.

    Hero of the game T.Young was +- 0 in his 35min.

    Of course I made spicy predictions and uncorrect accordingly. That's why I stopped betting at basketball.

    I missed that Brown was out for Boston as well. Still hoping that Celtics could pull out this one.

    I don't think that Khris Middleton is any better than the previous season... He has always being a top-20 player (IMO) over the last three seasons.

    The addition of Holiday has of course being huge for the Bucks, but I believe it's more to it... One can't overlook Divincenzo's rising and the addition of Portis too...

    IMO, the starting five and the 6th man (Portis) of the Bucks can challenge and are able to beat any opponent in the NBA and if the Bucks would have a better starting C than (aging and slow) Lopez (Val? Vooch? Turner?), they would then have the best starting five and 6th man in the entire league... It's the rest of the rotation which is weaker than the best of the competition and this is why I believe the Bucks will be close to unbeatable for the three following seasons...

    As far as this season is concerned, I believe that how deep the Bucks will go into the playoffs, will highly depend on the performance and help that Tucker, Fobes and Connaughton can delver when called from the bench...

    Congrats Buckalis, haven't watched the game but according to stats it was impressive.

    Going with 2-0 to Florida seems like a big deal in this series. If you take one down south this series could be done like you have prognosed more easy than it seemed after beginning.

    Doncic balling. As I projected, to me it's 50/50 between Mavs and Clippers and now Mavs has an edge. What a baller Luka is. It's no shame not to want him as opponent in the qualifying tournament. It would hurt too much when literally one player kills your best team in 5 years
