Benny Buckets’ NBA Opening Day Preview

IT’S FINALLY TIP OFF!!! The NBA season begins tonight!!!! LETS GOOOOOOO!!!

We will have two competitive games tonight between the Toronto Raptors and New Orleans Pelicans, followed by the battle for LA with the Lakers and Clippers. All eyes will be on watch tonight for both of those games with new faces in new arenas and a lot more tightly contested basketball than we’ve seen recently. I have thought about how each team will end up this year and am here today to present my season predictions in ranked order to you. Here you have it;

EAST

  1. Boston Celtics
  2. Milwaukee Bucks
  3. Philadelphia 76ers
  4. Toronto Raptors

You might be surprised by some of my predictions, so please contact me about your questions I LOVE talking basketball.

My finals prediction is Clippers vs Bucks. I see the Clippers just having too much talent with Kawhi, PG and their excellent supporting class like Lou Will, Pat Bev, Trez and others. I also feel the Bucks have a lot to prove from last year and are unstoppable if Giannis wants redemption. And I would have the Clips in 6 in that series. This was just a taste of what’s to come, still a long way to go this year. Get ready basketball fans, it’s going to be a great season.
