All eight NBA playoffs first-round matchups are set -- and the quest to 16 wins can now officially begin. The defending champion Los Angeles Lakers find themselves in a unique position as the betting favorite in their series against the Phoenix Suns while being the No. 7 seed. The Brooklyn Nets are the favorites to emerge from the East but face the challenge of their three stars -- Kevin Durant, James Harden and Kyrie Irving -- having played only eight games together in the regular season. Meanwhile, should the top-seeded Philadelphia 76ers and Utah Jazz be concerned about their first-round matchups against the Washington Wizards and Memphis Grizzlies who employ game-changing guards such as Bradley Beal and Ja Morant?
