The NBA playoffs are the best part of the year, right?
That’s what ESPN’s Chris Haynes wrote last week when he said that the series between the Boston Celtics and Golden State Warriors was “the best basketball game in the world.”
Haynes wasn’t wrong, at least on the surface.
The NBA Playoffs are the most important time of the season, and the first week of the playoffs usually means the most fun.
But even though we’re already deep into the regular season, the first two games of the first round are still in the air.
And while the series isn’t officially over, it feels like the playoffs have been on the upswing for years.
The 2017-18 season is now the fifth most-watched season on television, with the second-most-watches series after the 2014-15 season.
The 2016-17 season was the most-viewed season of the past 20 years, with an average of 4.5 million viewers tuning in per game.
In fact, it’s been the second most-played season in the history of the network, and second-highest season in terms of average viewership in its history.
In terms of viewers, the 2017-2018 NBA season is on pace to be the most watched in the network’s history, which would make the first time since 2006 that a season has averaged more viewers than the previous season.
This year, the Celtics and Warriors are both averaging over 4.0 million viewers per game, while the Cavaliers are at 2.4 million per game and the Bucks are at 1.7 million per match.
In total, the 2018 NBA Finals will be the first playoff series that averaged more than 3 million viewers.
If the Celtics beat the Warriors, it would be the biggest regular season audience in the series’ history.
The Warriors will be playing the Celtics for the first-ever NBA Championship in their home arena in the National Basketball Association Finals.
The Warriors were the defending champions of the 2014 NBA Finals and won the championship in their first ever NBA Championship.
Since then, the Warriors have gone on to sweep the Cavs in the 2016 NBA Finals.
The 2018 NBA Playoffs will also be the second time in the past five years that the Warriors and Celtics have met in the Finals.
In 2011, the teams were in the midst of their first title run.
The Celtics won the series in five games, but the Warriors won the game in seven.
In the 2014 Finals, the Bulls beat the Cavaliers in five, but then fell short in six games in the second round.
The teams are scheduled to meet again this year in the Eastern Conference finals, but it is uncertain how the series will unfold.
The 2017 NBA Finals is one of the most anticipated games of this year’s NBA season, but fans should take into account that the schedule is still evolving.
There are only a handful of games left for each team, and with a few exceptions, teams have already played the Celtics.
It’s not out of the question that the first game of the series could be played in the summer of 2020.
It’s also worth noting that the 2018-2019 NBA Finals are likely to be one of those matchups that can be viewed in a different way than the 2016-2017 series.
While both series will feature some interesting matchups, there will be plenty of similarities between them.
The two teams have made a lot of roster moves this off-season, and both teams have the chance to see their rosters completely re-shape.
In the 2017 NBA playoffs, the Cavaliers acquired Kevin Love, Andrew Wiggins and a 2018 first-round draft pick in a trade with the Milwaukee Bucks.
In 2020, the Cavs made a similar move by trading Tyronn Lue, Isaiah Thomas and two second-round picks for Kyrie Irving, Jae Crowder and another first-rounder.
Both teams will look to repeat their success from the 2016 postseason, which included two conference finals and a championship.
The only thing that can make the 2016 series feel like a repeat is the fact that both teams won championships in 2017.
