NBA Conference Finals preview capsules

Warriors vs. Rockets in Western Conference finals Warriors vs. Rockets in Western Conference finals

"Two great teams in the Western Conference finals, and we're doing more explaining every day than anything else".

The Cavaliers visited Boston last night for the opening game in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference Finals, with the victor to face either regular-season pace-setter Houston or defending champion Golden State.

In the Eastern Conference race, Forgrave, Botkin, Herbert, Henninger and Boone all expressed belief that Cleveland will be it in six games with Barnewall saying the Cavs will get the plum in only five games.

The same situation would play out if the Rockets advance to the NBA Finals - the Cleveland Cavaliers or Boston Celtics would be winners - at least at the Golden Nugget.

And if their thinking holds true, coach Steve Kerr's Dubs and coach Tyronn Lue's Cavs are most-likely to hurdle the Rockets and the Celtics, respectively, to, for the fourth consecutive seasons, dispute anew all the marbles. Add in guys like Terry Rozier, Jayson Tatum, and even Aron Baynes, you have a team that was able to upend Giannis Antetokounmpo in the first round and then arguably the hottest team in basketball, the Sixers, in the semi-final round. "We pull together. I'm not saying we're better or not [than last year's team], but we're definitely going back to the Eastern Conference finals, and that's a blessing". Cleveland beat No. 5 IN 4-3 and No. 1 Toronto 4-0.

That's because the Golden Nugget is owned by Rockets owner Tilman Fertitta, who bought the team for $2.2 billion in September.

"No, I like where we are", Kerr said. "That's a good position to be in". "To me, the hardest championship is the first one, as an individual player and as a team, because you don't know-you don't quite know-if you can do it".

The Houston Rockets have been designed and built with one goal in mind: beat the Golden State Warriors.

Most folks think James and the Cavs will prevail again in the East.

While members of the CBS Sports the panel mentioned a variety of reasons for picking the Warriors over the Rockets, they pointed to only one big reason-LeBron James-as to why the Cavs would be the "East's Best".

Of course, predictions are often wrong.
