On this episode, Mike and Jason begin by discussing the Eastern Conference matchups so far. They discuss the best game of the weekend between the Celtics and Nets, what has happened to the Raptors and if they can course correct, the surprisingly competitive first game between the Bulls and the Bucks, and then they talk Jimmy Butler & Trae Young in the Hawks/Heat series. They then shift their focus to the Western conference where they discuss The Doncic-less Mavs, how good the Warriors have looked, Jokic's ejection, the keys to the Timberwolves and Grizzlies series, as well as the impact of Devin Booker's injury on the Suns/Pelicans series.   After those discussions, Mike and Jason make predictions for the outcomes of each series, as well as make arguments for who they think makes it to the Finals from each conference, and ultimately who will win the title.
