The NBA playoffs start Friday night and for Duke fans, that means choices have to be made.

In the Boston-Milwaukee series, do you pull for Kyrie Irving and Jayson Tatum? Or Jabari Parker and Marshall Plumlee?

Philly plays Miami: JJ Redick or Justise Winslow?

Cleveland vs. Indiana is easy for Duke fans: Rodney Hood plays for the Cavaliers now.

Houston vs. Minnesota is easy too: Tyus Jones is a Timberwolf.

Golden State vs. San Antonio is an easy pick: go with Quinn Cook, the newest (and perhaps truest) Warrior.

There’s no one from Duke in the Blazers-Pelicans series so dealer’s choice there.

Kyle Singler is with the Thunder so Duke fans may wish to pull for them over the Jazz - but the Jazz are coached by Quin Snyder.

That still leaves a lot of guys out - Seth Curry (Dallas), Jahlil Okafor (Brooklyn), Mason Plumlee (Denver) and Luke Kennard (Detroit) for example.

Even so, Duke is well represented in the playoffs.
