While everyone is talking about the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers playing for the NBA title, there are other teams in the league that you should be paying attention to.
In the East, the Atlanta Hawks, the Boston Celtics and the Indiana Pacers are going to make an impact on how the postseason shapes up.
In the West, we all know that San Antonio is always a threat but if you get a chance, check out the Portland Trail Blazers, the Utah Jazz and of course the Los Angeles Clippers.

Don’t fall for it when many of these so called “experts” tell you that the sky is falling just because Kevin Durant joined the Golden State Warriors. They may be the upper class of the league along with the Cleveland Cavaliers and the San Antonio Spurs, but no one is invincible. The holidays are coming up, enjoy the entertaining matchups that the NBA has put together. The regular season should be full of great games and highlights which should trickle over to a great postseason. Keep in mind, the outcome rarely turns out the way that everyone predicted. If it were that easy to pick the champions, these “experts” would be in Las Vegas collecting cash instead of on television telling you that it’s a two-horse race.
Tune in later in the week where we highlight the top games to watch for the weekend.
