My educated prediction based on this formula

Looking at the landscape of the league after running the formula, there are a few teams that I can see winning it all this season. Making a prediction could prove to be difficult. However, isn't that the point of it all? I'd be pretty silly if I didn't pencil in the Boston Celtics to come out of the Eastern Conference. With how much talent they have on their roster, assuming they don't suffer a massive injury, this is a team that should make the NBA Finals.

Where it gets difficult is predicting who will come out of the Western Conference. I could legitimately see the LA Clippers, Denver Nuggets, or even a team like the Phoenix Suns win the West. For now, I think I'm going to go out on a limb and pick the Clippers to win the West. It may not be a popular pick but if they can avoid injuries down the stretch, this is a team that is built to win it all.

I predict that the Celtics will win the NBA Finals in six games over the Clippers. Of course, a lot can change between now and the NBA Finals but that's how I would predict it if I had to right now. Either way, let's enjoy the final stretch of the season.
