Can the Conference Finals live up to the second round?
We know this, there is still a lot on the line.
Toronto controlled the tempo when it mattered and — thanks to Kawhi Leonard — ground out a seven-game series win against Philadelphia, but can they do the same thing against Milwaukee?
Does Portland even stand a chance against Golden State? Does Kevin Durant missing the start of this series open the door even a little? Probably not.
Dan Feldman of NBC Sports joins me to break down both NBA Conference Finals series in this podcast, talking about the keys and what to watch for.
We also talk about the hiring of John Beilein by the Cavaliers and Frank Vogel (with Jason Kidd attached to his hip) in Los Angeles.
