Currently, the NBA is in the Quarter Final stage of the playoffs, with a lot of big named teams still in the picture. I’m going to talk about who might win it all. Starting with these bigger named teams I will mostly be talking about the Phoenix Suns, The Milwaukee Bucks, and the Golden State Warriors. Starting with the Suns, Devin Booker and Chris Paul have been one of the best duos in the NBA this season. There have been multiple games this season where each player has had a triple-double. A triple-double is when a player has three statistics in the double digits, For example, 10 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists. Aside from these two great players, the Suns are an all-around great team with their starting lineup having 3 All-Stars. The Suns starting lineup is Chris Paul, Devin Booker, DeAndre Ayton, Mikal Bridges, and Jae Crowder. They are currently playing against the Dallas Mavericks led by Point Guard Luka Doncic. As of right now, the series is tied 2-2 with the Mavs on a 2-game win streak they are hot and they aren’t looking to cool off anytime soon. That’s pretty much it for the Suns as of right now I’ll have to wait until the Semifinals if they make it there to get more in-depth at their chance of winning it all. The Bucks are another big team who are still in the playoffs. This team is crazy good but mainly because of Superstar Giannis Antetokoumpo. Giannis is most likely going to take over the scene in the NBA once all of these older guys that are still hanging on retire. He is everything a coach could want, he’s a young player with a great work ethic and he’s a freak. He has a 40-inch vertical jump, That’s really good! The Bucks are currently tied 2-2 with the Boston Celtics, it’s been a really close series every game won by a possession or two. The Celtics are also a very good team, like I said previously this series has been great so far to watch and I’m very excited to see how it will end. Finally the Golden State Warriors. The Warriors have been good for a long time now. They have been a team that when healthy you don’t want to play. Led by star point guard Stephen Curry Who has been dominating in this year’s playoffs. The Warriors are currently leading the series 3-1 ahead of the Memphis Grizzlies. This year has kind of been a bounce-back year for the Warriors due to the number of injuries they had last year resulting in many of their star players not playing. Some of these players were Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, and James Wiseman. People expected this of the Warriors despite the fact that this is a bounce-back year, everyone knows they are a top team when it comes to independent matchups they’re one of if not the best at it. No one knows where these playoffs will take us but I’m sure excited to find out, and I’m definitely ready to see who wins it all.
