NBA Championship on the line?

by Dan Bilicki In: Basketball

It’s not too hard to say that the Suns/Spurs series, that’s happening in the second round of this year’s playoffs, could give us the potential champion isn’t a statement that is out of reach. These two teams are clearly in the elite of the league and shouldn’t have too much trouble past their current opponent. Utah looks to be the team they would meet in the finals but shouldn’t be considered much a threat after dispatching a two-man team in the Rockets and an undisciplined team in the Golden State Warriors. In the finals they would be facing the east’s juggernauts, the Pistons, or possibly LeBron and his Cavaliers (let’s face it, Chicago and Jersey are doomed). While the Pistons could hang with the West winner, it doesn’t seem feasible that they could actually win an entire series. With Game 5 tomorrow and game 6 on Friday, these next two games of Phoenix vs. San Antonio may be the best games left in the NBA playoffs.
