article imageNBA playoff intensity begins as NCAA's cresciendo's

By Clay Walker     Mar 29, 2014 in Sports
The same night the defending NCAA champions Louisville lost to Kentucky we caught a glimpse of the strong playoffs to come in the NBA western conference.
Kentucky's youth shined through as they beat the 2013 March Madness champions the Louisville Cardinals. Kentucky now has the opportunity to make the final four if they can make it past Michigan. However, this was not the only tournament fight Friday night.
As viewers were watching these young studs, the pros were battling it out in Oakland as the Golden State Warriors fought to the end to put away Memphis. The Western NBA conference boasts some of the best records for years, and talent to match. The final three spots of the Western Conference were all within a game of each other before last night. Now they are all within two, with Dallas, Memphis, Phoenix, and Golden State fighting to secure a position.
NBA fans got a sneak peak into the Western Conference Playoffs Friday night as Draymond Green and Mike Conley exchanged threes to tie up the score with five and a half to go. Steph Curry made a three with 1:21 left to pull ahead for the final time and lead Golden State to the win. Was this our first taste of the NBA playoffs? If so, sign me up for that bracket too!
While March Madness sweeps the nation, basketball fans should take note of these scrappers trying to make the top eight in the West. Keep an eye open for games like the Phoenix Suns vs the Dallas Mavericks April 12th and Memphis vs Dallas April 16th. All hail spring basketball, and for more than one reason.
