NBA Western and Eastern Conference Finals

Keshav Laxminarasimhan, Reporter

This year in the NBA’s Western and Eastern Conference finals the competition is intense. In the West the Golden State Warriors and the Houston Rockets are competing, and in the East, the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Boston Celtics are competing. The Rockets are winning 3-2 with a game tomorrow, there is a potential chance of taking the series for the Rockets if they clutch it. Chris Paul from the Houston Rockets got a hamstring injury in game 5 hence missing game 6. On the Warriors’ side Andre Iguodala missed Games 4 and 5 due to knee soreness, but could potentially return for Saturday’s Game 6.

In the East, the Celtics have been without Shane Larkin due to a shoulder injury and it’s unlikely he will return for the rest of the series. From earlier in the season Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving have both been out with leg injuries. Even though it is looking bad for the Celtics, they are winning 3-2 against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

My prediction for the final is that it is going to be Warriors and Celtics because the Rockets have Chris Paul out for an injury and he is one of their lead scorers and on the Cavaliers LeBron James is carrying the whole team. There is only so much he can do to keep the Cavaliers in. These are my opinions and if you don’t agree with them it’s OK.
