Historic Night in the NBA

It was a night to remember for the NBA last night.  Kobe Bryant scored 60 points in his final game as the Los Angeles Lakers upset the Utah Jazz 101-96 effectively eliminating them from playoff contention.   On the same night one of the greatest ever hung them up, the Golden State Warriors capped off the greatest (record wise) regular season in NBA history beating
the Memphis Grizzlies 125-104, to finish the season 73-9.  Regardless of whether you a fan of Kobe and the Lakers, or Steph Curry and the Warriors, it was still an exciting night for the NBA, and should lead to an even more exciting postseason.  While the Warriors have shown that they are extremely tough to beat, I think anything is possible and I wouldn't be surprised if they don't even make the finals, as well as the favorite in the east, the Cavaliers.  I expect to see a Warriors-Cavs final, but as what usually happens in sports, you can almost always expect the unexpected.  So while I think it will be the favorites matching up, I won't be surprised if we see Raptors-Thunder.  Regardless it should be fun to watch.
