How to watch the NBA playoffs in your own time

The NBA’s playoff run is over, and now it’s time to start thinking about how to watch next year’s games, especially when the NBA Finals are on the horizon. 

This year’s finals will be held on July 19, meaning we’re in the midst of the most exciting NBA playoff series in years.

With the season ending on a big night for the Celtics, they’ll be looking to take advantage of a team that was so dominant they made it to the conference finals for the first time in their history last year. 

And while the Celtics have a long way to go to catch the Warriors, they do have a chance to steal the first-round series.

The Warriors have a good chance to win it all if they can hold off the Spurs.

But if the Warriors can’t do it, they’re headed for a lot of trouble.

Here’s everything you need to know before the Finals begin.1.

The Celtics will be able to win the series if they’re able to hold off James Harden and the Rockets.

Harden is averaging 28.9 points per game this season.

It’ll be interesting to see how he handles the Celtics in the series.

While they might be able the same thing as the Warriors this season, they’ve had a lot more success with the Warriors.

When you look at how James Harden plays, he’s just not a great offensive player.

He’s the fifth-highest scorer in the league with an average of 22.9 rebounds per game, but he’s been able to take away the offensive opportunities. 

His lack of explosiveness has forced him to use more of his size to create mismatches for other players.

In addition, Harden doesn’t have much experience on defense.

He played his first full season in the NBA in 2014-15, but didn’t have a single All-Star appearance.

He only played in 39 games that year, missing five games because of an injury.

He also missed time due to a concussion. 

Harden has been on a tear of late, scoring a team-high 21.3 points per contest during the second half of the season, which ranks fifth in the entire league.

That makes him a dangerous scorer and defender, especially if the Celtics can keep him on his toes.2.

The Spurs are an excellent team to watch in the Finals.

The Warriors have one of the best shooters in the game, LaMarcus Aldridge, who leads the league in 3-pointers. 

The Spurs will be a difficult opponent for the Warriors to guard. 

LeBron James is averaging 29.2 points per 100 possessions this season (top five in the whole league), and he’s shooting an incredible 57.9 percent from deep.

His ability to create his own shot and score inside from anywhere on the floor will be an issue for the Spurs, especially considering their defense is top notch. 

On top of that, the Spurs have Kawhi Leonard, who is averaging 20.3 rebounds per 100.0 possessions, and Manu Ginobili, who has scored a career-high 14.5 points per minute on the season. 

San Antonio will also have Manu and LaMarcus, who have played together for a long time and have developed a chemistry. 

Leonard, who averaged 21.9 assists per game last season, will be looking for a double-double. 

In addition to Leonard, Kawhi and LaMaurice, San Antonio also has Leonard’s son Kawhi, who averages 17.4 points per 40 minutes. 

It should be fun to watch Leonard and Kawhi battle for a championship. 


The Cavs will be without Kevin Love for the entire series.

Love has played in just 11 games this season due to injury. 

Love has been out for nearly a month due to an injury, and has yet to play a single minute of the Cavs’ postseason schedule. 

As of right now, the Cavs have only one win against another team in the Western Conference, beating the Warriors in the first round last year and losing to the Jazz in the second round. 

Despite the injuries, Love has put up some impressive numbers for a 25-year-old NBA player. 

He averaged 22.4 rebounds per contest in the playoffs last year, leading the league at that time. 

If he’s able to stay healthy, Love should be able help lead the Cavs to another championship.4.

James Harden is the top-scoring player in the East. 

James Harden is one of three players in the top 10 in scoring per game (Klay Thompson, Russell Westbrook) in the Eastern Conference. 

While the rest of the league has been struggling to keep up with Harden, the Houston Rockets are the only team to win at least 30 games this year and reach the second wild-card spot. 

According to, Harden is fourth in the conference with a 31.1 scoring
