The most thrilling time during the basketball season is approaching. Along with that comes the excitement of trying to guess who is going to make it. I make no exception.
The 2012 NBA playoffs begin on April 28. In general, the best teams during the regular season face much weaker teams. The top-eight teams in each conference qualify. The first seed plays the eighth seed; the second seed plays the seventh seed, and so forth.
Although these are wishful matchups, I have tried to stay realistic and base them on the teams’ standings as of April 11, 2012.
