Another year we're looking in from the outside. Here are the matchups: WEST OKC (1) vs Houston (8) Spurs (2) vs Lakers (7) Denver (3) vs Golden State (6) Clips (4) vs Memphis (5) EAST Miami (1) vs Milwaukee (8) Knicks (2) vs Boston (7) Pacers (3) vs Atlanta (6) Nets (4) vs Bulls (5) The 4v5 matchups in both conferences should be fun to watch. I suspect the Denver-Warriors series would be entertaining basketball as well. Spurs vs Lakers is probably going to be a very good series. Also interesting storyline with Harden facing off his former team. If I have to root for anybody, I'd root for Denver or Spurs I suppose. Pacers on the east.
