2014 NBA Playoffs Preview
4/21/14 - The NBA Playoffs have officially begun, and the first game for each series is now in the books. In the East, the Heat (2) were the only home team to secure a victory, while the Hawks (8), Wizards (5) and Nets (6) all edged out their lower seed counterparts. The winners of the first game in the West include the Spurs (1), Blazers (5), Warriors (6), and Thunder (2). The best upcoming match-ups to catch out of the West are the Clippers vs. Warriors and Rockets vs. Blazers. The Clippers/Warriors showdown was split during the regular season (2-2), while the Warriors are under-matched in size (especially after losing Andrew Bogut indefinitely with a fractured rib). For the Warriors to take the series they will have to rely on the outside shooting of "Splash Brothers" Curry and Thompson. The Rockets/Blazers matchup initially favored Portland (3-1 in the regular season), but the Blazers, who have lost in the first round in the last six-playoff appearances, won Game 1 in overtime. Victory was achieved off the backs of LaMarcus Aldrige (46 points with 18 boards) and Damian Lillard (31 points) in a historical performance: the two became the first duo to score 45+ and 30+ in a playoff game since Jordan and Pippen hit the mark in 1992. These exciting games have set the tone for the playoffs! Do not miss out on seeing the action in person by getting NBA Playoff tickets from Razorgator!
4/15/14- The 2014 NBA playoffs are just a few days away, with the regular season coming to a close as of tomorrow. All 16 postseason competitors have clinched a berth at this point, and are now waiting for their final seeding. The teams to clinch home court advantage in the first round are as follows: Pacers, Heat, Spurs, Clippers, Thunder, Raptors, Bulls, and Rockets. The Heat opted to rest LeBron James and Chris Bosh and subsequently fell to Washington on Monday, which allowed the Indiana Pacers to clinch the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference. Indiana will play Atlanta in the first round, while Miami is probably going to face Charlotte. In the West, the Spurs are locked in at No.1, but the Clippers have a real shot at taking the runner up seed if OKC loses Wednesday vs. Detroit. Memphis was the last team to punch their ticket to the postseason, squandering hopes of the heartbroken Phoenix Suns nation Monday night. First round matches are currently as follows, in the West: Spurs vs. Grizzlies, Rockets vs. Trail Blazers, Thunder vs. Mavericks, Clippers vs. Warriors, and in the East: Pacers vs. hawks, Bulls vs. Nets, Heat vs. Bobcats and Raptors vs. Wizards.On a side note, this year marks the first postseason that the big three—the Lakers, Knicks and Celtics—will all miss out on a run. Lock in your NBA Playoffs tickets today and experience the most bench-gripping action of the year!
4/8/14 - With just over a week left of regular NBA season, playoff matchups and berths are a topic of daily conversation. First up, the Pacers, Heat, Spurs, Clippers and Thunder have clinched division titles; they are joined by Raptors, Bulls, Nets and Wizards, while the Rockets, Bobcats and Trail Blazers are the latest berth-blessed contenders. As far as wild cards go, the East will see the Hawks and Knicks take it down the line, while the West has four teams on the brink: Warriors, Mavericks, Suns, Grizzlies. Will the Suns hold onto the 8th seed with the improved play of Gerald Green? Similarly, will Jeff Teague help the Hawks maintain their No. 8 seed? Teams that have seen a surge in chucking threes are the Mavericks and Knicks, though the latter will need much help from around the league to stay postseason relevant. See which teams stay playoff bound with NBA tickets!
3/31/14 - With the playoffs looming around the corner, the Toronto Raptors, Chicago Bulls, Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers have all secured playoffs spots in the East. In the West, the San Antonio Spurs have separated from the pack riding as the best with a franchise tying 17-game winning streak, while OKC and Los Angeles have claimed the only other berths. Our condolences to the teams (Philadelphia 76ers, Milwaukee Bucks, Orlando Magic, New Orleans Pelicans, Denver Nuggets, Sacramento Kings, Los Angeles Lakers and Utah Jazz) that will be golfing rather than playing in the postseason, but they will get to enjoy the spoils of a generous draft class. If you have been counting that would make 15 teams or half of the league that the fates have been accounted for. The match-ups in the west are certain to be great no matter what pans out in the last bit of the season, so score your NBA playoff tickets now! Current eight seed Dallas Mavericks, 44-30, would be a third seed in the East and would have already clinched a playoff spot. Memphis, 43-30, and Minnesota, 36-36, are sitting on the bubble. The road to the NBA finals will unfold shortly as the playoffs start April 19.
3/25/14 - Playoffs are approaching and teams are finally starting to clinch their spots! With less than a month left of play, the San Antonio Spurs, Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers are the only teams to have their postseason positions under wraps. Still, both the Pacers and Heat aren't acting like the top two teams in the East. While Indiana has gone 5-5 in their last 10, Miami's more atrocious, losing seven in the last 11. They should take notes form the Spurs (13 consecutive victories) or even the New York Knicks, who recently went on and 8-game win streak, putting them back into the playoff picture after becoming an afterthought. Another team that will take it down to the wire this month is the Phoenix Suns, who are just a half-game behind tying the Mavericks for that final 8 seed. March makes and breaks teams, get your NBA tickets now and see all the excitement go down yourself!
3/17/14 - The NBA is definitely putting the madness in March. The NBA gives you the best players in the world, competing at eye-popping elite levels—add a healthy dash of ego, and you can't go wrong when you buy NBA playoff tickets! Be there to see those make-it-or-break-it moments that will claim highlight reels for years to come, and with just over a dozen games left, things are taking a dramatic turn. The postseason separates the heroes from the zeroes, and you may think you know which team will hoist the Larry O'Brien Championship Trophy in the NBA Finals, but anything can happen in playoffs!
A handful of teams are on either side of the playoff spectrum at this point in the year. Clubs definitely out of playoff contention range from the usual offenders (Kings, Pelicans, Bucks) to those reaching new and unforeseen lows (Lakers, Nuggets, Celtics). Teams that are shoe-ins this year are the Spurs (best record in the league), Thunder, Clippers, and Rockets in the West; and the Pacers, Heat, Raptors and Bulls lay claim in the East. Other, perhaps surprising, title contenders are the Blazers, and the Raptors who are making the most of a dismal Atlantic division. The playoff race in the weaker East is heating up with a number of teams in the same boat from the third through eighth seeds, while the West is a little less wild: the Knicks and Suns are both ninth in their conferences. Phoenix is one game out in the West, and New York 3 games out in the East.
Considering we'll be in the playoff trenches soon, it's time to ask some pressing questions. The Spurs have the best record in the West—will they obliterate their Eastern equivalents (Pacers) for their lack of offense? Will Kevin Durant win both the scoring title and MVP in the same year? LeBron James has his team poised for a third postseason run—will he be the first player since Larry Bird to take the MVP in three straight seasons? Will former Syracuse star and 76ers youngster Michael Carter-Williams take Rookie of the Year despite his club's losing streak? Your favorite team is on the hunt for a playoff spot, you should be on the prowl for the best NBA playoff tickets to see their hard work pay off!
About NBA Playoff Tickets
Seeing a regular season game is one thing, but witnessing the postseason live with NBA playoff tickets is a whole new ballgame. It's a chess match with coaches matching wits, developing game plans, and making adjustments over the course of a seven-game series. It's a backyard brawl with defense and physicality becoming priorities rather than afterthoughts. It's a team effort with selfish concerns taking a backseat to individual roles. And it's a pressure cooker where NBA stars put their legacies on the line and elevate themselves to greatness, or wilt under the bright lights and go home. There's nothing like being there and bringing the noise with thousands of like-minded fans. It's the best. It's NBA Playoff basketball. Worry-Free Guarantee for Playoff Tickets
