2019 NBA Playoffs – Eastern Conference First Round – Poll

The NBA Playoffs begin on Friday.  The NBA playoffs in the Eastern Conference will be wide open this season due to LeBron James playing in the Western Conference now.  All four match-ups have some intrigue as well.  #1 seed Milwaukee Bucks will go against the #8 seed Detroit Pistons.  Both teams have bucked the trend in the NBA by having strong frontcourts.

The #2 seed Toronto Raptors will go against #7 seed Orlando Magic.  The most pressure is on the Raptors to win now due to Kawhi Leonard becoming a free agent this summer.  Orlando will be playing with house money since they have not even been in the playoffs since 2012.  The #3 seed Philadelphia 76ers will go against the #6 Brooklyn Nets.  The Sixers also went all-out to win this season with multiple trades, while the Nets have not been in the playoffs since 2015.  Also, the New York vs Philly rivalry is always intriguing.  The match-up between the #4 seed Boston Celtics and #5 Indiana Pacers could become interesting if the Pacers make their outside shots.

Pick who you think will win.
