Vincent Goodwill and Nekias Duncan discuss Tuesday night’s games, discuss the future of the Warriors and preview every Western Conference playoff game.

In this episode of Good word with good will podcast, Yahoo Sports NBA senior reporter Vincent Goodwill is joined by Nekias Duncan of The Dunker spot to talk about the NBA Play-In tournament and the first round games of the Western Conference of the NBA Playoffs.

The guys start with Zion Williamson, who had a heroic game against the Los Angeles Lakers before going out with a hamstring injury that contributed to the New Orleans Pelicans’ loss and will keep him sidelined against the Sacramento Kings on Friday.

Speaking of the Kings, they played fantastic against the Golden State Warriors and had the game well in hand before the end of the third quarter. After talking about the Kings’ game plan and performance, Vince and Nekias wonder what the Warriors can do this offseason to try to turn things around.

The Los Angeles Lakers, after beating the Pelicans, get a rematch of last year’s Western Conference Finals against the Denver Nuggets. Although it won’t be easy, Nekias and Vinnie discuss how the Lakers might be able to steal a game or two from the reigning NBA champions.

The Minnesota Timberwolves and Phoenix Suns are a first-round series loaded with star power and brimming with fun matchups. Who will Rudy Gobert defend when the Suns go small? How will the Suns create offense beyond contested shots? There are a lot of questions that need to be answered before this one.

Finally, the Dallas Mavericks travel to Los Angeles for the first two games against the Clippers. These two teams are meeting in the playoffs for the third time in recent memory, and much of the analysis heading into the series is wondering how healthy Kawhi Leonard’s knees are.
