Top Ten Teams in the 2020 NBA Playoffs

The Top Ten

1 Los Angeles Lakers The Los Angeles Lakers are an American professional basketball team based in Los Angeles. The Lakers compete in the National Basketball Association, as a member of the league's Western Conference Pacific Division. ...read more.

The Lakers are power team that is star heavy. There depth is a little underrated, but they are very good nonetheless. Being a Lakers fan I hope they will excell and bring home the chip.

I don’t watch American sports much but one good thing about them is how the balance of power can shift. For the Lakers to go from one of the weakest teams to the favourite to win the league is really a bizarre turn around.

I hope we win it all for Kobe. We have Lebron and AD which are a dynamic duo if we don’t win it this won’t feel right

2 Los Angeles Clippers The Los Angeles Clippers, often abbreviated as the LA Clippers, are an American professional basketball team based in Los Angeles.

The Clippers are ready to be unlocked. Their defensive potential is amazing and all they have to do is turn it on offensively.

The Clippers are a dangerous team with Kawhi and PG to me they have everything they need to win the championship and they pose the biggest threat to the Lakers.

3 Milwaukee Bucks The Milwaukee Bucks are an American professional basketball franchise based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The Bucks compete in the National Basketball Association as a member team of the Eastern Conference Central Division.

The Bucks are just a monster. They are revolutionary in terms of the balance of the offense and defense without that big three.

I feel they need more firepower they’re a one man show with Giannis. You take him out of the equation and they’re very beatable. I feel they come up short. Giannis only takes you so far

4 Boston Celtics The Boston Celtics are an American professional basketball team based in Boston, Massachusetts. They are specifically known for honing infamous players such as Larry Bird, Bill Russell, Paul Pierce, and more. They are also known for having the most championships in NBA History, with 17 total.

The Celtics are a lot like the Raptors. I think they just have one more step to climb before they are ready.

Celtics are good but I can’t trust them they always fall short

5 Toronto Raptors The Toronto Raptors are a Canadian professional basketball team based in Toronto, Ontario. The Raptors compete in the National Basketball Association, as a member of the league's Eastern Conference Atlantic Division.

Toronto is still a very scary team with most of their championship core still intact. Yeah they don’t have Kawhi but they’re just as dangerous without him.

The Raptors are just so balanced. They also have that Championship DNA. They are a dark horse.

6 Houston Rockets The Houston Rockets are an American professional basketball team based in Houston, Texas. The Rockets compete in the National Basketball Association, as a member of the league's Western Conference Southwest Division.

The Rockets are going to miss Westbrook, but once they get him back they will be a powerful team and is definitely one to be feared. They just gotta hope Harden can carry them through the 1st round.

They would be a dangerous team but no Westbrook hurts them. And all of a sudden they might not make it past a feisty Thunder Team that could be a sleeper pick. I don’t believe James Harden can carry them that far on his own

7 Denver Nuggets The Denver Nuggets are an American professional basketball team based in Denver, Colorado. The Nuggets compete in the National Basketball Association as a member club of the league's Western Conference Northwest Division.

Nuggets are a solid team. I mean Donovan Mitchell put up 57 points against Denver and STILL lost

A very smart team. That can do some stuff. They just don't have that it factor in my opinion.

8 Miami Heat The Miami Heat is an American professional basketball team based in Miami, Florida. The Heat compete in the National Basketball Association as a member of the league's Eastern Conference Southeast Division.

Miami is another incredibly balanced and well put together team. Watch Miami surprise some people.

I actually really like the Heat. Maybe they’re a sleeper team that makes some noise

9 Dallas Mavericks The Dallas Mavericks are an American professional basketball team based in Dallas, Texas. The Mavericks compete in the National Basketball Association as a member club of the league's Western Conference Southwest Division.

I like Dallas but I feel without Porzingis in the game they’re toast. Maybe he and Docic steal a game but this is still a learning experience for them I expect them to fall early unfortunately

The Mavs are gonna be a threat in the Playoffs. People are definitely underestimating the Mavs's offense.

10 Oklahoma City Thunder The Oklahoma City Thunder are an American professional basketball team based in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

The Thunder are a dark horse. A well put together team that can definitely stand its own.

OKC I like. They’re playing pretty feisty and could easily take out the Rockets

The Contenders

11 Portland Trail Blazers The Portland Trail Blazers, commonly known as the Blazers, are an American professional basketball team based in Portland, Oregon.
12 Utah Jazz The Utah Jazz are an American professional basketball team based in Salt Lake City, Utah. The Jazz compete in the National Basketball Association as a member club of the league's Western Conference Northwest Division.
13 Philadelphia 76ers The Philadelphia 76ers are an American professional basketball team based in the Philadelphia metropolitan area.
14 Brooklyn Nets The Brooklyn Nets are an American professional basketball team based in the borough of Brooklyn, in New York City. The Nets compete in the National Basketball Association as a member of the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference.
15 Indiana Pacers
16 Orlando Magic The Orlando Magic are an American professional basketball team based in Orlando, Florida. The Magic compete in the National Basketball Association as a member club of the league's Eastern Conference Southeast Division.
