2020 NBA Western Conference Semifinal Predictions
By Shane R
With a successful restart to the NBA season, people are now wondering which 4 teams will be left in the Western Conference after the first round of the playoffs. Since all games are being played in Orlando, Florida, the NBA action has been all in one location. The NBA interest has been through the roof, as well, with multiple game times throughout the day.
Los Angeles Lakers – With LeBron James and Anthony Davis manning the ship, the Lakers are the odds on favorites to win the entire tournament. At 35-years-old, James is still playing at a mighty level scoring 25.7 points per game and collecting 7.9 rebounds a game.
Los Angeles Clippers – By combining All-Stars Paul George and Kawhi Leonard, the Clippers have easily wandered into the playoff conversation, even though they have not been at full strength for much of the season. George has averaged 21.0 points per game while dishing out 3.9 assists per contest.
Utah Jazz – The Jazz have been an up and down team all season. With the addition of Mike Conley, the team has not exactly put it all together. But, with the Utah Jazz losing Bojan Bogdanovic for the rest of the season, fans are hopeful that Conley will start to play like the star they believe him to be.
Houston Rockets – What do you get when you have two ball-dominate guards on the same team? You get the Houston Rockets. With James Harden and Russell Westbrook taking control of the team, they can either make or break things moving forward in the NBA playoffs.
