There are four teams left in the NBA playoffs. In the east, LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers will take on Kyle Lowry and the Toronto Raptors. The Cavs are looking super strong and have not yet lost a game this post season. Meanwhile, the Raptors must be getting tired because they needed 7 games in both of their first two series. The Raptors and the Cavs will kick off their series in Cleveland on May 17th.
This Western Conference showdown will feature the best basketball player in the game today, Stephen Curry. The defending champion Warriors have been led all season by their all-star and now repeat MVP, guard, Steph. With the help of Klay Thompson, 26, Steph and the Warriors were able log 73 regular season wins and knock off the ’96 Chicago Bulls for the best record in the history of the NBA.
So how can the OKC Thunder beat the best team in the history of the sport? Well, they probably can’t. But it is no accident that the Thunder have gotten this far this season. Oklahoma City is home to great shooters like KD and Russell Westbrook who both must average double-doubles or better in this series if they are to have a chance at making a run at the champs. Good luck fellas!
