From 15 to 60: The Playoff-Ready Bucks are Built to Stay

Who will be the new king in the East?

The Clippers won 143-137 in overtime.

Embiid talks so much trash on the court, and it's time for him to back it up when the matters most. We've broken down all eight first-round series, ranking them based on upset potential and highlighting the seven playoff co-stars who could swing the 2019 title. Doc Rivers merits consideration for that achievement alone.

Currently, the defending champion Golden State Warriors are the unanimous odds-on favorites to win their third consecutive National Basketball Association championship. "Everybody's good", Golden State coach Steve Kerr said.

The teams are meeting in the first round again.

After pushing the Golden State Warriors to Game 7 in the 2018 Western Conference Finals, the Rockets were expected to be leading contenders this season following the addition of Carmelo Anthony.

"That was the Sterling game". I never had no stable environment.

"I think the parity and the competition in the East, and not knowing and everyone having a honest chance maybe in the East that did not, when not you look between Toronto, Boston, Philadelphia", TNT analyst Chris Webber said. The distractions were just overwhelming that night. Bojan Bogdanovic has really stepped up, as has Wes Matthews, and Young, Turner, Sabonis, I mean the whole team, really.

This is definitely a new series, and the Warriors like how they have come together from a topsy-turvy season that featured embarrassing losses at home, a rarity in recent years. Having said all that, the Warriors are still not to be taken lightly, but you shouldn't pencil them in as sure-fire champions just yet.

Brook Lopez has been the iron man and two-way anchor for injury-riddled Bucks this season: Also of the Journal Sentinel, Matt Velazquez touched on the stabilizing presence Brook Lopez has been for the Bucks throughout the season as well as providing some other news and notes heading into the team's final game of the regular season.

Amy Poehler’s WINE COUNTRY Looks Like a Joyous SNL Reunion
With a script from SNL writer Emily Spivey and The Last Man on Earth writer Liz Cackowski, there should be plenty of smart comedy in this movie.

The Clippers count heavily on their talented, versatile bench, too.

"I enjoy the way they played basketball". He's not going to outscore or outshoot Curry. Kerr was committed to not sacrificing the health of his team down the stretch just to secure the No. 1 seed.

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. They've done that four straight years, winning three of them, and with a strong finish after some occasional lapses surged to the best record in the West.

Everybody is eager to see Cousins on the big stage at last.

The Warriors are looking forward to snatching four of the last five season championships. "It's unfortunate what happened in New Orleans with the injury and everything. I plan on taking full advantage of it". Judging by the work he has put in and the MVP season he has put up numbers-wise, there will be plenty of teams Fearing the Deer and Milwaukee will be playing well into May and June. They've been overlooked all season, and I can't wait to watch them face off against Philly and probably Milwaukee, but their first-round matchup with Orlando won't be quite as riveting.

Per 100 possessions, he's got an offensive rating of 119 and a defensive of 105.

Story line: The 76ers loaded up for a postseason run, making trades during the regular season to acquire Jimmy Butler and Tobias Harris.

Durant explained that his experience with Golden State has been rewarding, despite the negative attention that comes with the job.
