Welcome to The Lab, FiveThirtyEight’s basketball podcast. On Thursday’s show (April 26, 2018), Neil and Kyle talk about two Western Conference series: Oklahoma City vs. Utah and Golden State vs. New Orleans. Russell Westbrook helped the Thunder force Game 6, but can his team really win two more consecutive games against the Jazz? And can the Pelicans take advantage of the Warriors while Golden State is without Stephen Curry?
The Lab will be back with another episode next week. In the meantime, keep an eye on FiveThirtyEight’s NBA predictions, which are updated after every game.
