Behind the powerful performances of marquee players led by Russell Westbrook of OKC Thunder barging into the all time single season record for most triple-doubles surpassing the old record done by the Big O’ Oscar Robertson.
The sweet 16 pairings as shown paints a picture of potential upsets and lopsided pairing based on the stats and power rankings. Here are my fearless forecast as to who’ll show up and bow out of contention for the Division Titles. Here’ we go.
Utah – LAC = 4-2 UTAH
ATL – WAS = 4-3 WAS
OKC – HOU = 4-2 OKC
MIL – TOR = 4-1 TOR
MEM – SAS = 4-2 SAS
IND – CLE = 4-1 CLE
POR – GSW = 4-1 GSW
CHI – BOS = 4-1 CHI
At the rate the games are played, it is very evident that not all the coaches are solved with the way the referees are handling delicate calls during end games, while some superstars are not being challenge well with their opponents, expect them to breeze through the division title games. Your team not in the favorites, relax this is just a forecast based on the rankings and stats, actual results may vary depends on the health and teamwork any of the sixteen teams involved in the playoffs. Enjoy the game.
Forecasting is a great exercise to determine your depth of understanding of any particular situation. -Paquito
