Breaking down the second round
The Stanley Cup Playoffs aren’t the only postseason well underway. The NBA is into the second round as well, and Erik Kuselias talked with Steve Kyler of basketballinsiders.com about the various matchups.
Even with all their injuries, the Boston Celtics took it to the Philadelphia 76ers last night in game 1 of their series. Steve had the Sixers at the outset of the series and isn’t changing his pick after just one game, but he gives praise to the surprising depth shown by a team missing Kyrie Irving and Gordon Heyward.
LeBron James is, as always, a major topic of NBA discussion. This is likely the weakest Cavaliers team around James since he returned from Miami, but that Cleveland team still has LeBron. How far can he carry the Cavs, and what help will his teammates be able to give him throughout these playoffs?
