This week's podcast features the breakdown of the opening games of the Conference Finals. Will the winner of game one in the East and West prove to be the favorite in each respective series going forward? Not so fast though, the Rockets proved that no lead is safe, not even 3-1. Concerning the East, LeBron has owned the Eastern Conference Finals, so the Hawks have a tough road to haul in order to stop his NBA Finals appearance streak at 4. In the West, James Harden gets the opportunity to prove that he is the real MVP in his matchup vs Steph Curry. Last but not least, the Patriots Robert Kraft has agreed to take his medicine. Is the end of the Deflate-Gate saga? We have the answers is this week's podcast of INtheZONE!

John Fanta and Cory Pontarollo recap Game 4 of the NBA Finals after the Warriors swiped home court advantage back with a 103-82 rout in Cleveland. The series is a best-of-three now, with both teams traveling back to Oakland for Game 5 on Sunday at 8 p.m. The guys debate, and they want to hear your opinion. What was the biggest thing that clicked for the Warriors that must go right for them to pull out this series? Is the Cavs' fatigue going to be too much to overcome? Tweet @John_Fanta and @Cory_Pontarollo. CALL 347-850-1629.
Impossible to go into the conference finals without talking about the team that should have made it but didn't -- the Los Angeles Clippers. My take: They are not cursed. They were merely too thin, and they didn't have the fortitude to finish the job.
And if the Houston Rockets taught us all one thing during their series against Doc Rivers' team, it was this: Never give up, no matter how bleak things seem.
But that series is behind us, and we now move into the conference finals wondering exactly what we are going to see. Hack-a-Howard? Hack-a-Bogut? Corey Brewer defending Stephen Curry. Or maybe Trevor Ariza taking on that task. Or even pesky old man Pablo Prigioni. That series is going to be a chess match for sure, and we may end up seeing Klay Thompson being the most important player in the series. As mentioned yesterday in our staff predictions column, Thompson is the leading 3-point shooter, accuracy-wise, of all the players still playing.
And that allows us to turn our attention to Kyle Korver (35 percent from downtown in the postseason) and the Atlanta Hawks, who went 3-1 against the Cavs during the regular season while using DeMarre Carroll as the primary defender on LeBron James. This site has already devoted considerable attention to the amount of money Carroll is earning during these playoffs, and whether it behooves him to sign a one-year contract so that he can reap the rewards of being a max player when the salary cap jumps to $90 million 13 months from now. If the Hawks are able to win this series (they are a 1 1/2 point favorite in Game 1, it will postpone Northeast Ohio's dream of ending its 51-year championship drought.)
All these plots and subplots were up for discussion in this podcast with Jody Oehler and Mike Jurecki on FOX Sports 910 in Phoenix. Enjoy.
Who will win between the Bulls and the Cavs?
Does Memphis have enough to upset Golden State?
Can the Wizards go to the Eastern Conference Finals?
I will preview the Conference Semi-finals in both conferences and give you my picks and predictions. As I will tell you who I think will advance to the Conference Finals.
