Who will the Golden State Warriors be playing in the first round?

Who will be the new king in the East?

Who will be the new king in the East?

Another team that can make some noise in the 2019 National Basketball Association playoffs are the Houston Rockets.

Milwaukee Bucks: Current roster captures spirit of franchise's past greats: Adam McGee wrote about the parallels this year's Bucks team has with past squads throughout the franchise's peaks in the early 1970's and throughout the entire 1980's and the spirit of the team heading into this year's playoffs.

The Warriors may need to get by scoring champion James Harden and the Rockets, who took them to a seventh game a year ago in the conference finals, just to get back to that round this time.

After a long 82 game regular season, the 2019 NBA Playoffs are set.

According to the latest oddsmakers, the Golden State Warriors are the clear favorite, as they are listed with -400 odds to win the West. "Unfortunately, I rightly predicted we'd lose by 50, I think we lost by 40 that game, I don't know how much".

Never bet before? Here are two quick definitions. Both teams match up perfectly, but experience will advance the Spurs. The first came in 2012.

We're finally here. Playoff time. There isn't much to discuss in this series, except to see how Stephen Curry's new contacts continue to improve his shooting. Before they begin what hopes to be a thrilling finals run, one must take the time to appreciate the transformation this team had to go through to make this possible. Oklahoma City averaged 128 points in those games. He was able to score at least 30 points against all other 29 teams. Magic Johnson has already stepped down as president of basketball operations. (Time for VSiN's standard disclaimer that you'll usually be better off betting your choice at series prices round-by-round in a "rollover parlay" rather than betting them on the futures board).

With Chicago's frontcourt bolstered by the acquisition of former Piston Dennis Rodman, Jordan's first year back was marked by a spectacular regular season in which they went 72-10, a record that stood as the best of all time until the Warriors topped it in 2015-16. "You got [Danilo] Gallinari who can do the same", the Warriors forward added.

The Milwaukee Bucks topped the league with a 60-win season, showing the world an even stronger Eastern Conference after the absence of LeBron James, who chose to become a Los Angles Laker.

Bet: Orlando should cover and bet the over. Leonard struggled with injuries with San Antonio in 2017 and 2018 and later was traded to the Toronto Raptors after his teammates accused him of faking his injury.

For the sake of trying to make some actual profits, we're going to fade the Warriors and look only at teams capable of overthrowing the winners of three of the past four titles.

NY 2019: Genesis reveals Mint 2-door electric concept
In all seriousness, this electric concept shows a different side of the Genesis brand, which so far consists of larger sedans. The two-seater has a lavish interior and an extravagant yet tiny rear cargo space you can access through gullwing doors.

"It's a whole new season", coach Doc Rivers said. However, the Spurs aren't necessarily the right matchup to pull off the upset. In the previous three meetings, Orlando has averaged a tick below 113 points per game and took two of the four regular-season contests overall. Sharpshooter Klay Thompson wasn't far behind and averaged 21.5 points per game.

"We've been in these types of series before, where it's about the gamesmanship, understanding players' tendencies", Shaun Livingston said.

Coach Steve Kerr and Draymond Green have endured a great deal of friction this season.

Bet: The Clippers will cover and bet the over.

Los Angeles realizes the challenges of winning in such an imposing venue. However, it will be a tough road for the No. 1 seed because of all the depth the Eastern Conference possesses in terms of talent. When he's healthy, there's no denying that the Sixers' big man is one of the most dominant at his position. This season he's recorded 17 points, .9 steals, 3.1 assists, 78.2 FT%, and 6.9 rebounds.

While the Deer have plenty of ammo offensively to win games, it's their defense that will lead them to the promised land.

The Thunder, who would give the Warriors the toughest matchup of the three, are playing the most hard opponent. IN would love nothing more than to steal a Game 1 victory in Boston.

Elsewhere, the Warriors' pair of Steph Curry and Kevin Durant are well used to leading their side to titles having won the last two while Boston and Philadelphia both have star-studded line ups with the likes of Kyrie Irving and Joel Embiid on show. But Hayward struggled for most of the season.

Are the Marcus Smart-less Celtics a touchdown better than the Pacers? However, it wouldn't surprise me at all to see the Spurs moving on to the second round.

The last game of the first round is between the No. 4 seed Boston Celtics and the No. 5 seed Indiana Pacers.
