Everything That’s Taken Place In The 2010 National Basketball Association Western Conference Playoffs
For the NBA Western Conference Playoffs, this has been a tumultuous year. While some series has been decided in four games and some in seven, most of these series have been exhilarating. If you haven’t been paying attention, here’s a brief analysis of what’s happened so far.
In the first round, the Los Angeles Lakers faced the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Laker’s coach Phil Jackson got this series off to a heated start by making cheap shots about the way that Thunder star Kevin Durant plays the game, insisting he lives at the foul line.
In the end, Kobe Bryant refused to let his squad lose this one.
In a matchup of I couldn’t care less, the Utah Jazz were able to beat out the Denver Nuggets in X games. I don’t know what it is about the Utah Jazz, but I really just don’t like this team. Williams is great but I just don’t find them entertaining.
Also in round 1, the Portland Trailblazers squared off against the Phoenix Suns. This Suns team looked rejuvenated and like the Jazz, won this series 4-2.
The Dallas Mavericks faced their in-state rival, the San Antonio Spurs in the first round in a battle of #2 vs. #7, respectively. Dirk Nowitzki put up some gaudy numbers, but Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili were stellar and put the Mavs away.
In the Western Conference semifinals, the San Antonio Spurs were pitted against the Phoenix Suns. Up until this year, the Spurs had won the last five playoff series against the Suns, however this time was different. The Suns played to make a statement and swept the Spurs in the feel-good story of the playoffs.
The Utah Jazz played the Los Angeles Lakers and had a similar fate to the Spurs. The Lakers came out with a vengeance and beat the Jazz in a quick four games. In a great series matchup, the Lakers are now playing the Phoenix Suns in an exciting, fast-paced matchup.
