Heat vs Nets and Spurs vs Blazers arguably pick of the bunch.
After a thrilling first round of the NBA Playoffs 2014 was concluded on Sunday, the schedule is set for the Conference semi-finals with some interesting match-ups ahead.
Given the precedent set through the regular season, the Western Conference looks particularly competitive with all four remaining teams realistically harbouring hopes of reaching the NBA Finals.
The San Antonio Spurs arguably remain the favourites to prevail, but they will not find life easy against the Portland Trail Blazers, with the two teams splitting the regular season series 2-2.
Meanwhile, there is another heavyweight battle in the other semi-final with the Los Angeles Clippers taking on the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Both teams were forced into a Game 7 decider in the opening round, and having shown their determination to advance, they will not want to waste their chance now.
Over in the Eastern Conference, the Miami Heat take on the Brooklyn Nets after the latter secured a series sweep during the regular season, while the Washington Wizards will be hoping to pull off another upset when they face the Indiana Pacers.
