Daly Dose #129 Who is going to the NBA Finals?

This week on the Daly Dose, we make our picks for who will be going to the NBA Finals! With the NBA Conference Finals now underway, we tell you who is going to win the East between the Boston Celtics and the Cleveland Cavaliers, and who will win the West between the Golden State Warriors and the San Antonio Spurs.

What happened to Houston Rockets guard James Harden in the series against the Spurs? We think we may know why he failed to show up for Game 6.

Colin Kaepernick can’t seem to get many looks in the NFL, the Denver Broncos made some fans angry, Tom Brady is tempting fate, and do Big Baller brand shoes actually make you a big baller?

And with the Warriors and the Cavs being heavy favorites to go to the NBA Finals, we count down the Top 5 upsets that have taken place in the NBA Conference Finals.

The Daly Dose Sports NBA Preview: Southwest Division

Our final NBA preview!

NBA Southwest

Western Conference Southwest

(Predicted order of finish)

Team Outlook
1. San Antonio Spurs The Spurs responded to getting knocked out of the first round of the playoffs last year by signing LaMarcus Aldridge and David West. Aldridge is a significant upgrade to the Spurs as a scorer and he seems to have a boring enough personality to fit right in with those robot nerds down there.
2. Houston Rockets You might look at the Rockets and consider them a favorite to contend for the West after they went to the Conference Finals last year. But there are still a number of questions that remain to be answered. How will James Harden deal with being jilted by a Kardashian? Can 30 year old Dwight Howard stay healthy? And what is really in Ty Lawsons’ water bottle?
3. New Orleans Pelicans Anthony Davis might be the best young player in the NBA today. For the second straight year he led the league in blocked shots, was fourth in scoring, and eighth in rebounds. Of course, Tyreke Evans is already hurt and we know that Eric Gordon can never stay healthy. So if the Pelicans are going to make the playoffs Davis will have to play at an All-World level.  So you’re telling me there’s a chance…
4. Memphis Grizzlies If I was going to head into a back alley brawl, I would want to take this team with me. Marc Gasol, Zach Randolph, Mike Conley, Jeff Green and Tony Allen are some bad dudes. Unfortunately this isn’t a street fight. It’s basketball. And this team is another year older and still can’t shoot.
5. Dallas Mavericks Sure, the Mavs may not have had the best offseason. Rim protector Tyson Chandler left for Phoenix. And talented shooter Monta Ellis has joined the Pacers in Indiana.  And Dirk Nowitzki is just another year older.

It isn’t all bad news though. At least free agent C DeAndre Jordan said he would go to Dallas, which should really help.
