Welcome to the latest edition of the PBT Podcast — it’s playoff preview time.
Myself and Eytan Shander of NBC Sports Radio take a look at all eight first round playoff matchups in the NBA. There are some that are pretty clear cut — Charlotte is not going to beat Miami, and the Mavericks got a terrible match for them in the Spurs.
However some series will be close. Watch the Raptors and Nets go deep, and Memphis is going to give Oklahoma City a handful. We also discuss if the Trail Blazers can jumpshoot their way past the Rockets. All of those and more. Everything you could want in one 30-minute preview.
