National Basketball Association attendance breaks the all-time record for a fourth consecutive year

National Basketball Association attendance breaks the all-time record for a fourth consecutive year

However, over the course of the season the Houston Rockets have gradually worked their way into the conversation, and at this point in the season, many experts consider them a legitimate threat beat the Warriors for several reasons.

Despite winning last year's championship and the Finals MVP award, Durant still can't shrug his haters off his back.

There are three first-time referees selected in Kevin Cutler, Karl Lane and Kevin Scott.

From the top seeds in Houston and Toronto, to the old stalwarts in Golden State and Cleveland, to the brash up-and-comers in Philadelphia and Minnesota, there are potential storylines galore and no real way to predict how it all may shake out.

So who is going to the NBA Finals?

After the 2017-18 NBA regular season concluded, NBA.com released a story on Thursday regarding the overall attendance figures. They will be tested from the outset by an IN team that many thought would be rebuilding this season. The 76ers have captured the hearts of many this season, rising from futility thanks to the emergence of two of the game's brightest stars - Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons. Last February marked his four-year anniversary as commissioner and his changes are paying off, and don't be surprised if next year brings another record-breaking season. The record from last season was 259,753 points across the league, and that went down as most of the night's early games were approaching halftime. Toronto is assured $803,222 while Boston and Golden State are up to $704,169. Then everything broke near perfectly in the playoff brackets.

Minnesota Timberwolves - Falling from grace and nearly out of the playoffs means the Timberwolves will probably lose in four or five games against the Houston Rockets, even with Jimmy Butler.




Key matchup: Draymond Green vs. LaMarcus Aldridge.

Will the Sixers actually make the Finals?

Oklahoma City Thunder (4) vs. Utah Jazz (5) - The Jazz boasted the NBA's best defense for the final few months of the regular season, and now they'll try to stop a star-studded Thunder squad that finished 10th in offensive rating. "To be honest, I'm always asking him what we should expect".

I'm picking Toronto in five games here. But we haven't seen that Warriors team in awhile, and Steph Curry won't be back in the first round. I think the Wolves win will one in Minnesota.

Harden and Chris Paul have a lot to prove this post-season. And both were right on the cusp of ending their droughts this year; Casspi was waived by Golden State because it needed a roster spot once he hurt his ankle, and Cousins tore his Achilles' to end his season with New Orleans.

But Curry's knee sprain throws a very big wrench into any prognosticator's thinking. If he's somehow unable to return, the Cavaliers will have a chance to win the title. This prediction, then, hinges on the assumption that Curry will make a relatively speedy recovery and enjoy reasonably good health during the postseason.

Davis set career highs in scoring (28.1 points per game) and led the league in blocked shots (2.6 per game) and game score (24.4), a metric created by John Hollinger to give a rough measure of a player's productivity for a single game. Miami is easily the most aggressive, scrappy teams to play, with 19 games decided by one possession and nine games go into overtime. After asking a couple of National Basketball Association fans to give their thoughts on a possible 4th match-up, one replied, "I think it will be frightful because it's bad for the National Basketball Association". The Jazz won last year's No.4 vs. No.5 matchup in seven games, and they could have a repeat performance this season.
