AFTR PRTY Staff NBA Postseason Predictions


The NBA regular season restart wrapped up last week with the Portland Trailblazers winning an exciting play-in game vs. the previous 8th seed Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday. As the NBA postseason begins today, there is no telling what to expect from the bubble. Teams have been shooting lights out in the new fanless, AAU-atmosphere of the bubble and as we have seen with surprise teams such as the Blazers, the Pheonix Suns (RIP🙏🏾), and Indiana Pacers, just about anyone can get hot on any given night. This is a big reason why the postseason should not be overlooked and written off as "an asterisk" in October when an NBA champion is announced. Every game, players have proven that they are going to be playing like it is their last and putting it all out on the floor for us fans to enjoy.


The NBA recently released awards for the seeding games including Damian Lillard being the unanimous NBA Bubble MVP and Michael Porter Jr., Devin Booker, and T.J. Warren receiving less likely predicted First and Second Team selections for the 8-game season, our power rankings from before the restart have definitely shifted. Here's an inside look of what the AFTR PRTY Sports team expects the rest of the NBA playoffs and 2020 regular season awards to happen in the next coming weeks:
