Biggest 1st-Round Lesson Learned From Each Western Conference Playoff Team

We got a wide variety of series in the first round of the Western Conference Playoffs. There was a sweep, a couple of gentlemen’s sweeps and the tightest and best first-round series of all time.

At the end of the round, four teams are headed to the conference semifinals: the Golden State Warriors, the Houston Rockets, the Los Angeles Clippers and the Memphis Grizzlies. In an extremely deep and competitive conference, making it past even one round is no small feat and signs of a very strong team.

For the teams knocked out, losing in the first round is nothing to be ashamed of, because of the great quality of teams still remaining.

Through the four unique series, we learned a lesson about each Western Conference team. What are they? Read on and find out.
