The NBA Play-In Tournament has become a nice appetizer for 1st round games, plus it keeps more teams in engaged during the regular season..but until a Play-In team wins a 1st round series we're going to continue to talk about this topic. If you believe in "due" like I do, this does feel like the year that it might occur..can the Hawks shoot the lights out like they did against the Heat and give the Celtics a series or is that recency bias? How about the top-heavy Lakers playing the Grizzlies who have injuries in their front court? Or will an 8-seed down the Nuggets?
In the podcast clips below, Raheem Palmer of The Ringer drops knowledge on series prices and Play-In thoughts, also Kravitz and myself react to night one of the Play-In's.
