Welcome to The Truda Report everybody. Last night was the NBA Draft Lottery, so I'll be giving you guys the final order for this years draft. If you want to hear my evaluation on what the results mean to each team, I'll try and get that article out soon. I'll also be giving my prediction for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Make sure to follow my Instagram @thetrudareport for updates on when I post, and if you do make sure to let me know if you want the extra NBA Draft article.

Cleveland Cavaliers @ Boston Celtics:
Tonight the annual LeBron Conference Finals start, but for once the man I named this series after isn't the number 1 seed. Since tonight's game is in Boston, I think this is the Celtics best chance to win a game. They have only had 2 days of rest though, so that either means they look tired and play poorly, or they come in still high on the momentum they gained after beating the Wizards. I truly hope that it is the latter, since my belief is that if they lose tonight they get swept. I'm willing to believe that they can win though, so I'll take IT4's squad in what I see as an upset victory tonight. That's not going to translate to how I feel about the series though. I think this series goes 6 games max, but my official prediction is 5 games. Let's see if Boston can prove me right tonight, but then prove me wrong about the rest of the series.
