    Despite winning three of the first four games of the second round of the 2020 Playoffs, Paul George and the Los Angeles Clippers are yet to completely eliminate Nikola Jokic and the Denver Nuggets. After a strong start, the Clippers suffered back-to-back losses in Game 5 and 6, allowing the Nuggets to even the series, 3-3, and force a Game 7. Knowing how the Nuggets took down the Utah Jazz in the first round, some people think that the Clippers might be in danger of facing elimination before their highly-anticipated faceoff against the Los Angeles Lakers in the Western Conference Finals. Though the Nuggets have already found their rhythm and are gaining more confidence, George remains optimistic about the Clippers’...

    After an impressive performance in the Orlando bubble, the Phoenix Suns are expected to be more aggressive in building a competitive roster around All-Star shooting guard Devin Booker this fall. The Suns may have failed to secure a playoff spot in the Western Conference, but Booker’s bubble performance gave them a glimpse of hope that they could accomplish something big in the 2020-21 NBA season. To strengthen their chances of fully dominating the Western Conference and bringing home the Larry O’Brien Trophy, they should highly prioritize adding All-Star caliber players on their roster in the 2020 offseason. One of the most realistic trade targets for the Suns is Tobias Harris of the Philadelphia 76ers. According to Lucas Johnson of Fansided’s...

    While they both needed seven games to get to this point — despite being up 3-1 in their respective series — these teams were widely expected to be in the Western Conference finals. Dallas needed overtime and an unlikely hero against the Avalanche to make its first conference final appearance since 2008. That team, by the way, had Hall of Famers Mike Modano and Sergei Zubov in its ranks. Game 7 belonged to rookie Joel Kiviranta — a 24-year-old who had only played 11 NHL regular season games and two bubble games — and his hat trick.  “We had a secret Finnish weapon over here,” said Stars captain Jamie Benn regarding Kiviranta next to him during a video news conference with reporters.

    EDMONTON, Alberta (CBSDFW.COM/AP) – With a little more than 12 minutes to go in the first overtime, the Stars’ Joel Kiviranta scored a goal and Dallas won the seven-game series in sudden death overtime to advance to the West Conference Finals for the first time since 2008. More to come. (© Copyright 2020 CBS Broadcasting Inc. All Rights Reserved. The Associated Press contributed to this report.)

There will be three Game 7s before the conference finals can get underway, and the first one features the Avalanche and Stars.  For the Stars, this shouldn’t have even gotten to this point; they led 2-0 and 3-1 and looked poised to advance to the Western Conference finals for the first time since 2008. They also didn’t want to bring up the ghosts of 2019, when this squad was up 3-2 in their best-of-seven series with the Blues before losing 2-1 in overtime in Game 7. The Avalanche are also looking to leave last...

    After being eliminated in the first round of the 2020 Playoffs, rumors surrounding Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, and their future with the Philadelphia 76ers have started to surface in the league once again. With their inability to contend for the NBA championship, some people think that it’s already time for the Sixers to consider breaking the young star duo of Embiid and Simmons in the 2020 offseason. According to an anonymous Western Conference head coach who spoke to HoopsHype, the Sixers should follow the Milwaukee Bucks’ blueprints and build around Simmons, the former No. 1 overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft. “If I were a new coach, I’d like to coach them together for a year first before trading...

Compared to the Lob City era that featured the “Big Three” of Griffin, Chris Paul, and DeAndre Jordan, the Kawhi Leonard and Paul George-led Clippers are expected to be more successful and considered one of the heavy favorites to bring home the Larry O’Brien Trophy this year. During his stint in Los Angeles, Griffin revealed that it has been their No. 1 goal to turn the Clippers into a legitimate title contender in the Western Conference.

Eric Gordon, Houston RocketsGordon has missed Houston’s first three games with a left ankle injury, and could remain on the sideline for two weeks as the Rockets jostle for positioning in a packed and fluid Western Conference. While the team is loaded with wings who can shoot and defend, none are quite like Gordon.
