The 2014 NBA Playoffs are upon us, which means its time to take a look at predictions and odds.
One of the more intriguing first round series in the Western Conference’s 4/5 matchup between the Houston Rockets and Portland Trail Blazers. Both teams are young and can put up a boatload of points (they rank second and third in points per game, respectively). They also have budding superstar guards in Damian Lillard and James Harden. Look for a fast-paced series.
The Trail Blazers have been road warriors this season, but they’ll have to steal at least one game in Houston – where the Rockets only dropped eight games all season. If Portland takes Game 1, buckle up for a long series.
