NBA Western Conference Odds 4/12/19, Warriors favored to win again

After a disappointing first-round exit in last year's playoffs, the forward entered this season more determined than ever.

Instead, the loss to the Thunder saw them drop down to the fourth seed and a risky first-round series against the Utah Jazz, who have won 32 of the 45 games they have played since January 1 and boast the NBA's second-best defensive rating (conceding 105.7 points per 100 possessions). Let's go in depth on the matchups.

Sorry Detroit fans, but this won't be much of a series.

Steve Kerr's team had a 57-25 record this season and will go into the playoffs as the favored team to win the National Basketball Association championships for the third straight year. "Not to take it for granted what we've been able to do in the past and what we're doing now".

Milwaukee finished with the best record in the league, and Antetokounmpo is under heavy consideration for the MVP, but it means nothing if the Bucks get booted from the first round again. Something that dates back to 2001 having lost eight consecutive first round appearances. The Warriors Death Sentence is now looming over their season. Although it's unclear how soon Steph will make his playoff debut, Golden State will breeze through this series. Hayward, who struggled mightily to rediscover his best form after returning from a season-long injury absence, finally started to look more like his old self in the final 10 games of the regular season. But when he has played well, Boston has been a different, more effective team. But at least I know what they're going to give effort wise. Still, this is a team that can make noise with scoring threat Bojan Bogdanovic. Coach Nate McMillan deserves a lot of credit, too. First, however, the Rockets must go up against the Utah Jazz. I was trying to come up with reasons to pick IN in this series, but Kyrie Irving vs. Darren Collison really isn't much of a contest. "My game was talking to me". Yes, they've stumbled down the stretch of the regular season.

Playoff series history: The franchises have met twice in the playoffs, splitting first-round series in 1979 and 1984. Hats off to Nikola Jokic, Michael Malone, and the Nuggets on a magnificent regular season... First, it's all about just getting to June.

I think Milwaukee could win the east, but it's completely up for grabs. They swept the season series with Detroit 4-0. Both had career seasons, but can they keep it up in the playoffs? However, I'm still picking the Warriors until someone proves otherwise. However, the Spurs aren't necessarily the right matchup to pull off the upset. The x-factor in this series will be DeMar DeRozan.

The cities of Denver and San Antonio will witness a battle of two well-constructed teams.

Where Can I Watch In Ireland?

"I know the historical connotation, we talk about it and we want to chase it and understand how unprecedented it is what we're trying to do", Curry said. Tough to stop around the rim, but can also handle the ball and is an elite passer - averaging 7.7 assists per game.

Jackson took over as head coach of a Los Angeles Lakers team in a similar position to where the Bulls were in 1990, full of star talent but unable to climb the mountain.

Outlook: The health of 76er center Joel Embiid is a concern; Philadelphia is not the same without him. There's one series that could end quickly, but even that one could be compelling. He may erupt to win one or two games, but the Thunder, who were undefeated in four regular season games against Portland, will win this series and extend the Blazers' postseason misery. There are definitely a few takeaways that we can transfer over from past year, but it'll be a very different series for a few reasons. This is going to be a game won in the half-court, not on the run, but if the Spurs do get sped up in Denver, it could cost them as they are not used to playing that type of game.

Houston are 19-6 since the All-Star break, while Utah are 18-5. The Raptors shouldn't have an issue toppling the Magic, but this is a much better Orlando than in years past. I guess it's Jae Crowder, but I don't feel great about that.

That's a really good omen for the Bucks.

Still, this series will likely be decided by the same thing as past year.

Players to watch: Kyrie Irving is the Celtics' star. "I will never forget that", Rivers said last weekend at Oracle, recalling a 118-97 Game 4 loss.

Not only do these numbers indicate that Giannis is a deserving MVP but he is also the obvious choice for Defensive Player of the Year. On the other hand, Oklahoma City is one of the league's most confusing teams. Adams could have a field day in his absence, and that could free up Russell Westbrook and Paul George.

They came through a testing opening-round series with the Sacramento Kings and a seven-game Conference Finals series with the Portland Trail Blazers before overcoming the Pacers in six games in the Finals, O'Neal racking up 41 points in the close-out game and adding Finals MVP to his league MVP award.

Key matchup: Enes Kanter vs. Steven Adams. Their major struggle comes against the pick and roll.

These playoffs are shaping up to be one the most exciting in recent memory.
