Doug’s Sports Rap-Who Will Face The Lakers?
Fifteen teams have qualified for the NBA post season with one spot remaining and four teams unsure of their fate.
Today's remaining games will decide which of these teams, Portland Trailblazers, Memphis Grizzlies, Phoenix Suns, and San Antonio Spurs will earn the eight slot in the western conference.
The Phoenix Suns have been unstoppable, remaining perfect since the NBA start, The Portland Trailblazers Damian Lillard has run amuck, putting up 61 points in his last outing.
Memphis has a real chance to secure, and the Spurs, who have played well since the NBA start, will need help and some luck.
So who would give Lebron and company a good run in the first round? I think Portland could actually upset the Lakers, and the way Phoenix has played, their momentum could carry them into a competitive series too.
Most of these teams have had layovers, injuries, and more delays with players testing positive for Covid-19.
Look at any of these teams, and take one key player from that team, and it could be the difference in the series.
If I were the top seeds, I would not take anything for granted, this will be a very different playoff year, and I don’t think any team has a clear advantage?
