#1 Golden State Warriors #8 Los Angeles Clippers
#2 Denver Nuggets #7 San Antonio Spurs
#3 Portland Trailblazers #6 Oklahoma City Thunder
#4 Houston Rockets #5 Utah Jazz

There are some really interesting match ups in the first round. The two most intriguing first round series will be the 4/5 match ups in both the Eastern and Western conference featuring two franchises that under performed for the 2018-19 regular season. First the Boston Celtics were expected to build off last season’s playoff momentum, but stumbled through the season to a #4 seed in the East. They’ll face a tough Victor Oladipo -less Indiana Pacers team that’s anchored by Myles Turner.

In the West, the Houston Rockets jumped on the back of James Harden‘s incredible scoring season (and shot a lot of threes), but still couldn’t live up to the high expectations that they set for themselves from last season. The #4 Rockets will go up against the #5 Utah Jazz in the first round.

The Jazz stumbled out of the gate early in the season and Donovan Mitchell ‘s shooting slump, but ultimately got themselves together and righted the ship. They’re not as potent offensively as Houston, but the Jazz will be more than formidable on both sides of the court.

Nowitzki played his last game and put in a double double of 20 points and 10 rebounds while Wade provided a triple-double for the Miami Heat. In front of his best NBA buds LeBron James, Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony.
