Playoff Predictions Roundtable

Friday, April 13, 2018


Maybe this is a recency bias, but doesn't it feel like this could be one of the most unpredictable playoff runs in a long time? The Warriors aren't going to sweep their way to The Finals, right? Could LeBron actually not make it to the championship? East Finals even? We have more questions than answers these days.

 

Plus, there isn't much to go in for seasons series. The Thunder and Jazz haven't played since Dec. 5, and the Celtics team that will face the Bucks is basically new to the matchup -- Terry Rozier and Al Horford didn't play in the most recent game.

 

With all that said, here is a look at how the Rotoworld crew sees how the postseason goes. Lots of differences for the whole gang!
