Eye on Basketball Podcast: NBA playoffs first round preview
Zach Harper and Matt Moore discuss the Nick Calathes suspension, preview the first round for the East, and discuss the first round for the West.
Matt Moore joins me to preview the first round of the 2014 NBA playoffs just before the action tips off. We start in the Eastern Conference and try to figure out if regular season success shooting the 3-point shot could help the Atlanta Hawks survive a few games against the Indiana Pacers. Can the Charlotte Bobcats score enough points to consistently hang with the Miami Heat? Are the Brooklyn Nets a good "upset" pick against the Toronto Raptors or is this Raptors team legit? And how effective will John Wall and the Washington Wizards be against that Chicago Bulls' defense?
In the West, the San Antonio Spurs are expected to roll the Dallas Mavericks but how long can Dirk Nowitzki help his team survive? Are we going to get the same type of struggles against the Memphis Grizzlies' defense for Kevin Durant as we saw in the past or will the Oklahoma City Thunder solve that? How much blood and 3-point shooting will be spilled in the Los Angeles Clippers' feud with the Golden State Warriors? And which 3-point chucking team will win between the Houston Rockets and Portland Trail Blazers.
We discuss all of that, plus Nick Calathes' suspension, some playoff stats, and much more.
