Another weekend is around the corner, and so is another NBA Playoff showdown. The fun begins Saturday, April 16.
What the weekend or the playoffs hold in store for us no one can be sure, but predictions can be made based on past performances.
The NBA is full of talent these days; I can't recall seeing so many great first-round matchups. Typically, we have grown to become accustomed to the Western Conference offering up great first-round series. With recent trades and so many contract buyouts this year, the Eastern Conference series may be even better than the Western Conference's.
Let us now take a look at who will win each first-round series and why.
