Blake Griffin reveals his 2020 NBA Finals prediction
Detroit Pistons All-Star power forward Blake Griffin was recently asked to share his 2020 NBA Finals prediction.
Meanwhile, Griffin said he expects Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks to win the East.
“Out of the West, it’s gotta be Lakers or Clippers, and in the East, the Bucks,” Blake Griffin told Leo Sepkowitz of Bleacher Report.
“We haven’t even really seen a good head-to-head Lakers-Clippers game. I feel like the first game, no Lou Will, he’s such a big piece, and Montrezl [Harrell] too. It’ll be fun to see those two teams.”
The Bucks have the best record in the NBA for the second consecutive season. They will take on the Orlando Magic in the first round of the 2020 playoffs.
LeBron James’ Lakers, who are in first place in the West, will face Damian Lillard and the Portland Trail Blazers in the first round. Meanwhile, Kawhi Leonard and his Clippers will match up against Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks.
The Lakers and Clippers split their season series at 2-2 during the regular season. The Clips won the first two games, but the Purple and Gold took the latest two, with the last one taking place at Walt Disney World.
Milwaukee is widely expected to win the East and represent the conference in the NBA Finals. However, teams such as the Toronto Raptors, Miami Heat and Boston Celtics could give Giannis and Co. a run for their money.
