Welcome to the Truda Report everybody. Below are my picks for tonight's NBA Playoff games. Follow my Instagram @thetrudareport for updates on when new articles are released, and also so you can either give me your opinion on whatever I'm writing about or request new topics.
Update on my picks:
Milwaukee Bucks @ Toronto Raptors:
The Milwaukee Bucks have played much better than I expected from them, and to me it looks like they can win this series. I originally picked the Raptors in 7 games, but the way things are playing out, the Bucks might end up being the ones to win in 7. Tonight I'm taking the Raptors though, because I think the home court advantage will help them take the lead in this series. Giannis Antetokounmpo has been playing like a superstar, and I think the Bucks have a bright future, but for now I think the Raptors experience will help them win home games down the stretch of this series. I'm on the fence about who will win the series as there are serious upsides to each team, but tonight I'm going to stick with the Raptors.
Washington Wizards @ Atlanta Hawks:
The Wizards have a 2-1 series lead against the Hawks, having won both of their home games and then being obliterated in the first match in Atlanta. I think that the Wizards are one of the only teams with the ability to challenge the Cavaliers, so I expect them to win this series. I took them in 6 games though, saying that they would win every home game in the first round, which means the Hawks must win tonight to make my 6 game prediction correct. For that reason I'll take the home team Hawks, but expect this to be their final win of this season.
Golden State Warriors @ Portland Trailblazers:
"Blazers in six."- Damian Lillard
HAHAHAHA!!!! I understand having confidence in your team, but my god was that a stupid prediction. I said that the Warriors would win in 5, but I'm going to backtrack on the 5 game part of that prediction. I'm taking the Warriors tonight, completing a sweep of Lillard's Trailblazers. Even without Kevin Durant the Dubs have been in complete control of this series, further proving they are the team to beat. Completing the sweep tonight will further reinforce the notion that they are the favorites to win it all.
