Flash's Return
NBA Playoffs

It has been a while since my last post, but Iíll make my return this NBA post season. So without further ado, here are my 2015 NBA Playoff predictions.

Weíll start in the east:

I think the Hawks will take care of the Nets pretty easily. The Hawks have proven they can win and the Nets, well they have not. Iím taking the Hawks in 5 games.

I know I got to a slow start on this one but the Toronto and Washington series is very intriguing. The Wizards took game one in OT, but I think Toronto will be a tough out for Washington. With that being said Wizards in 7.

My beloved Celtics, who no one thought had a chance to even make the playoffs, take one LeBron and the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Cavs are 1-2 against Boston this season, but that doesnít mean much. The post season is a whole new ball game. However the Celtics will not be intimidated and will not back down. I think this series will be closer than people think. Cavs in 6.

The Bulls and Bucks is a very lackluster series, however I will say this watch out for Chicago. If they stay healthy they could come out of the East. In this series, Iím taking the Bulls in 5.

Second Rd.

Atlanta against Washington is a good match up, but I like the Hawks a lot. They play so well as a team, and that is why Iím picking Atlanta to beat Washington in 6.

Cleveland and Chicago, I think this series will determine who will win the Eastern Conference. I think the Cavs have the advantage, but donít count out the Bulls. The Cavs will get it done but it wonít be easy. Cleveland in a long hard fought seven game series.

Conference Finals

Atlanta vs Cleveland, 1 vs 2. This has the possibility of being a great series. LeBron and the Cavs against the seemingly anonymous Hawks. The Hawks have surprised everyone all year, but I think that will end here. The Hawks do not have that one guy that you must have down the stretch to win playoff games. I think this will be an outstanding series with the Cavs winning in 7.

In the West:

Golden State will have no problem with the Pelicans. Curry and Thompson are just too much for New Orleans, Warriors sweep the Pelicans.

Memphis spent most of the season in the second spot in the West but ended up as the five seed. They take on the Trail Blazers. I think the Grizzlies take this series in 6.

Itís the Battle for the Lone Star State as Houston takes on Dallas. This is a very difficult series to pick in my opinion. These teams will go back and forth, but at the end of the day, I think the Rockets take the series in 7.

The Clippers find themselves as the three seed against the San Antonio Spurs. Tough luck. The Spurs have once again started clicking at the right time. The ageless Spurs take this series in 7.

Second Rd.

Golden State vs. Memphis is an interesting matchup however I think the Warriors will just be too much for Memphis to handle. Warriors in 6.

The Rockets will face another team from the state of Texas but this time it will be the Spurs. James Harden and Dwight Howard will try to knock off Tim Duncan and Kawhi Leonard. Again the Spurs experience will be too much for the Houston. San Antonio in 6.

Conference Finals

The best team this season faces arguably the best team of the last 15 years. This could be an all-time great series. I think the Spurs will be worn down and the Warriors will still be fresh. This will be the difference in the series and I think the Golden State takes it in 7.


The Cavaliers against the Warriors. LeBron vs Curry. This is going to be a good series. The Warriors have been the best team all year and the Cavs struggled to find their identity early on before getting it rolling. Golden State will have home court advantage in this series and I think they will need it. I see this series going 7 games and the Warriors winning it and bringing home the hardware.

Thanks for reading, feel free to share your thoughts by sending me and email, and please spread the word about the blog.
