With all of the cinderella teams in the NCAA this season, who have been the NBA cinderella teams so far? Who could they be in the playoffs?
Oklahoma City Thunder.
What they said
i think the raptors could be a cinderella team in the playoffs because they have under achieved most of the year, but had games where everyone was on the same page and they play amazing and have beat some pretty good teams. They usually play down or up to their competition, so in the playoffs this will be good cause they will be playing up all the time.. So i could see them maybe making a surprise run in the playoffs if the whole team plays their personal best.
I have to give it to the Bucks. The Thunder have a ton of talent so it was just a matter of chemistry. The Bucks are winning with defense and Skiles getting every ounce out of his players. Salmons has arguably been the best deadline pick up this year.
in a 7 game series there is rarely a cinderella story. Every now and then it happens but in the East the top 4 are some much better than the rest with Boston being the only weak link. In the West outside of OKC everyone has experience and talent.
Based on matchups I'd say Suns, OKC but I don't see any 1st round upsets.
Not really giving much of a chance to Miami or Milwaukee.
Bobcats if they move up to the 6th seed go against the Celtics never know if one of the big 3 gets hurt for Boston.
