How many of the 16 teams in the NBA Playoffs have a legitimate shot at the championship?
It is a fair question, and it was posed to me this morning on NBC Sports Radio by host Erik Kuselias on NBC Sports Radio. Just to give you a preview, I did not answer "Trail Blazers," "Pelicans" or "Celtics." But I did give an answer that reflects what an odd situation we have on our hands after the first two days of the NBA Playoffs.
Clearly, the Los Angeles Clippers and San Antonio Spurs are both championship worthy. And just as clearly, one of those teams is going to be watching the second round of the playoffs from their sofas. After two days of postseason basketball, it is not unfair to say that the only series worth your while is the one taking place between the Nos. 3 and 6 seeds in the West -- the two teams that finished the regular season with the strongest finishing kicks.
But which team in the other seven series has a legitimate shot to make these NBA playoffs a bit more interesting?
Give a listen and I'll provide you with an answer.
Game-winners, buzzer-beaters, and physical play headline another action-packed week of NBA playoff basketball.
