2019 NBA Playoffs Bracket: Playoff Progress
It’s Golden State vs. the field.
The hockey playoffs just began, and basketball is right behind: presenting the 2019 NBA playoffs bracket.
Just like in the NHL, sixteen teams, eight from each conference, advanced to the postseason. Only one comes out of that mess as a champion, and the process will take about two months to complete. When the dust settles, will Golden State once more rise to the top of the heap? Is it time for another team to rise, like Milwaukee, Toronto, or Denver? Finally, will some team shock all of us and ride to an improbable championship, like San Antonio or Orlando?
The latter is unlikely, with the first thing being very likely just because: Golden State have won three out of the last four finals. While Golden State is a legitimate dynasty, the Western Conference is the center of power in the Association. Western Conference teams have won 14 of the last 20 championships.
