Which of the National Basketball Association squads are the updated favorites to win the Conference finals? And ultimately the Association title? NBA Playoffs Final Four Championship Odds (May 17).
This quick hitting NBA Final Four and Championship Odds article isn’t to pinpoint a champion. It isn’t designed to make picks or persuade the reader in one direction or the other. First and foremost, as a professional handicapper, it isn’t embarrassing to state that the Eastern finals are a tossup despite Boston’s 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series. And in the West it isn’t a stretch to prognosticate the club that does a better job of defending will win. And when I write (type) – when – I mean WIN. This referencing not only the Western Conference but the NBA Championship, as well.
The most important piece to the Boston success in the East is keeping head coach Brad Stevens on the sidelines. Doing so both physically and mentally healthy. If Stevens doesn’t win coach of the year in 2018 then there needs to be an investigation into those voting.
Furthermore the success of the Warriors in defending their championship crown is putting a one-hundred percent healthy Steph Curry on the court. If there is one Western Conference series given it is that the Rockets are going to target All Star guard Curry. Houston is going to hand or pass the ball to whomever Curry is guarding and tell them to take it to the rime.
The Rockets coaching staff targeted Curry on 23 possessions in Game #2. And while the sample is small it is the most he has been isolated in any one game this postseason. The result was a 127-105 rout by Houston on Wednesday night to even the series at one game apiece.
