Who is in Western Conference Finals?
Phoenix Suns vs Los Angeles Clippers are in the Western Conference Finals.
The 2021 NBA Western finals are officially scheduled for Sunday, June 20, which is the first playoff game then game 5 if necessary Monday, June 28, game 6 if necessary Wednesday, June 30, game 7 TBD.
My pick to win Western Conference Finals is Phoenix Suns in 6 games. Suns seem to be just a more compact team with leaders like small guard Devin Booker a young center Deandre Ayton and the most experienced all-star point guard Chris Paul. They can go all the way to the NBA finals.
With injured Kawhi Leonard and Serge Ibaka, I don’t see Paul George taking all the weight by himself.
As of this writing, Phoenix Suns beat Los Angeles Clippers in 6 games as I predicted a couple of weeks ago. We have to wait to see how Atlanta Hawks vs Milwaukee Bucks plays out. (Updated on June 30, 2021)
Who is in Eastern Conference Finals?
Atlanta Hawks vs Milwaukee Bucks are in the Eastern Conference Finals.
The 2021 NBA Eastern finals are officially scheduled for Wednesday, June 23 which is the first playoff game, game 4 is scheduled on Tuesday, June 29. Game 5: Thursday, July 1, Hawks at Bucks, game 6: Saturday, July 3, Bucks at Hawks, and if necessary game 7: Monday, July 5, Hawks at Bucks. All games at 8:30 p.m. Eastern Time.
My pick to win Eastern Conference Finals is Atlanta Hawks in 7 games. I know Milwaukee Bucks are favorites but I like the lucidity of point guard Trae Young plus young stars like Bogdan Bogdanovic, Kevin Huerter, John Collins, and center Clint Capela, backed up with very good veterans Danilo Gallinari and Lou Williams that is why I see them in NBA finals.
The Bucks have two times NBA MVP power forward Giannis Antetokounmpo very good small forward Khris Middleton and a good Point Guard Jrue Holiday besides them I don’t see who can step up and help them reach NBA finals.
Giannis Antetokounmpo injury update
Giannis Antetokounmpo injured his left knee during the third quarter in game 4 vs Atlanta Hawks. The injury happened when Antetokounmpo went up to block an alley-oop attempt by Hawks center Clint Capela and awkwardly lending on his left leg. Is still now clear how long Giannis will be sidelined, for now, he is doubtful for game 5. (Updated on June 30, 2021)
