With the Oklahoma City Thunder’s win over the Los Angeles Clippers in Game 6 of their series, the 2014 conference finals are now set in both the Eastern and Western Conference Finals.
In the West, the Thunder will now take on the defending Western Conference champions from last season, the San Antonio Spurs, who easily handled the young Portland Trail Blazers in their last series. In the regular season, the Thunder swept the Spurs, 4-0, but as we saw in the series with the Heat and the Nets, that doesn’t mean all that much when the playoffs arrive.
Speaking of the Miami Heat, they’ll be taking on the Indiana Pacers in the Eastern Conference Finals, a series that many predicted before the season even began. Although, there were a lot of people who thought the Pacers would be much more efficient than they are right now at this moment, but they have a chance to wipe that all away if they can take out the two-time defending champions and head off to the NBA Finals.
These NBA Playoffs have been some of the more eventful series that we’ve seen in quite some time, and the best might be ahead of us with these conference finals series coming up.
Here’s a look at the updated NBA Playoffs bracket, from the beginning to right where we stand at the moment.
