Due to the current pandemic, the NBA season this year had to be cut short as well as most other sports. The NBA is having an eight game play in and taking nine teams in the eastern conference and thirteen teams in the Western Conference.
Teams will be playing in the ESPN Worldwide of Sports Complex in Disney at Orlando, Florida. The teams will start to play July 30th.
I think the Los Angeles Clippers will represent the Western Conference in the NBA Finals. They have an amazing roster consisted of Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, Patrick Beverly, Montrezl Harrell, and many more key contributers. They also are coached by Doc Rivers who is a great coach and has been in the NBA for a long time. I feel like a healthy and well-rested Kawhi Leonard could be dangerous. They are already one of the best defensive teams in the league. Kawhi took over for the Raptors last year and led them to their first NBA Championship in franchise history. It will be difficult for the Clippers to beat the Lakers but I have faith in the Clippers defense.
In the Eastern Conference, I think the Boston Celtics will advance. The Celtics also have a great roster in Kemba Walker, Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, and Gordon Hayward. They are also coached by Brad Stevens who is one of the best coaches in the NBA. It will be tough to beat the Milwaukee Bucks with Giannis Antetokounmpo but I have faith the Celtics can win the series.
In this NBA Finals I have the Clippers winning in 6 games. I think the pure dominance of the Clippers roster is too much for the Celtics to handle. The Celtics also have a weak bench compared to the Clippers. Doc Rivers would also love to beat his former team.
