    Default NBA Playoffs-1st Round Upsets(possibilties)

    Last year, the Golden State Warriors became just the 3rd team to ever knock out a first seed, as an 8th seed. They were also the only team to ever knock out a first seed, in a best of 7 series.

    These are all the teams that have an opportunity to make a first round upset, if they clinch a playoff spot:

    Eastern Conference

    Philadelphia 76ers(7th Eastern Conference 38-37)
    Opponent the 76ers could upset: Detroit Pistons, Cleveland Cavaliers, or
    Orlando Magic

    Atlanta Hawks(8th Eastern Conference 35-40)
    Opponent the Hawks could upset: Boston Celtics

    New Jersey Nets (9th Eastern Conference 31-44)
    Opponent the Nets could upset: Boston Celtics

    Indiana Pacers(10th Eastern Conference 31-44)
    Opponent the Pacers could upset: Boston Celtics

    Western Conference

    Houston Rockets(6th Western Conference)
    Opponent Rockets could upset:Los Angeles Lakers or San Antonio Spurs

    Dallas Mavericks(7th Western Conference)

    Denver Nuggets (8th Western Conference)
    Opponent Nuggests could upset: Hornets or Spurs

    Golden State Warriors(9th Western Conference)
