The NBA Conference semifinals are here

By Alejandro Freixes, CCNN Head Writer

The intense first round of the 2014 NBA playoffs ended on Sunday with two Game 7 matches, as the Brooklyn Nets barely edged past the Toronto Raptors 104-103, and the San Antonio Spurs destroyed the Dallas Mavericks 119-96. Now, the Western Conference semifinals will begin with the Spurs facing the Portland Trail Blazers and the Los Angeles Clippers taking on the Oklahoma City Thunder. As for the Eastern Conference, it’ll be the Indiana Pacers battling the Washington Wizards, while the Nets compete against the defending champs, the Miami Heat. Considering how unpredictable the playoffs have been so far, it’s anyone’s guess who will end up facing each other in the Conference finals.
