Ben Simmons and the Sixers have been on a tear, winning 20 of their last 21 games.

For a while there, it looked like LeBron James wasn’t going to live up to his self-anointed title of King James. The Indiana Pacers gave the Cavs a run for the their money, taking them the full distance, which concluded with an exciting Game 7. The Boston Celtics had a more decisive victory against the Bucks, but they too were left looking quite vulnerable. The Cavs will have a much easier time against their second round opponents than the Celtics, who are matched up against the surging 76ers.

The story in the Western Conference, on the other hand, has gone according to script, with the Rockets and Warriors gaining a 1-0 lead in each of their series. Everyone is salivating for the long-awaited clash between these two rivals in the next round.

Most exciting series to watch this round:

Celtics vs. 76ers

Here is our rundown of what to except in round two of the NBA Playoffs:

EASTERN CONFERENCE
Regular Season Series Aliyah Media Prediction Comments  
Toronto Raptors (1)
vs.
Cleveland Cavaliers (4)
Cavalier
2-1
CAVS All that hard work by Toronto to get the home court means nothing in this series. Cleveland will advance to the Eastern Conference Finals.
Boston Celtics (2)
vs.
Philadelphia 76ers (3)
Celtics
3-1
76ERS The last time these teams played each other was in late January, when Kyrie Irving was still a factor. This 76ers team is much more confident and firing on all eight cylinders.
WESTERN CONFERENCE
Regular Season Series Aliyah Media Prediction Comments  
Houston Rockets (1)
vs.
Utah Jazz (5)
Rockets
4-0
ROCKETS This is a very talented and strong Jazz team, but this Rockets team was built for a match-up with the Warriors - and that’s where they’re headed.
Golden State Warriors (2)
vs.
New Orleans Pelicans (6)
Warriors
3-1
WARRIORS Just like the Jazz, the Pelicans are a young and talented team, but the Warriors are just too much for them.
