You need to pick the winner of each series of the first round. I will tally them up after this round and pick the round 1 winner. Then we'll do round 2, then 3, then 4.

Pick the winner of each series, PLUS IN HOW MANY GAMES!


Bulls vs Pacers (#)
Magic vs Hawks (#)

Heat vs 76ers (#)
Celtics vs Knicks (#)


Spurs vs Grizzlies (#)
Thunder vs Nuggets (#)

Lakers vs Hornets (#)
Mavs vs Blazers (#)

I will also put them in Poll form, just to see if that works, but just post your predictions on here anyways in case people start being jerks in the poll.

And now the lakers! i'm always hearing about how good they are after going 1-0 up in a series but by that token they must historically struggle after going behind in one?

Let's hope we keep upset sunday going later now!

They'll still win the series, but probably in 6 at most.

Chris Paul was ridiculous today, hopefully Gray is ok, he'd be a huge loss if he he's done for the series.

Not surprised SA lost since Manu was out.

LOL, Knicks up 11 at half.

Melo looking good, Knicks defense surprisingly has been pretty good. C's need to get it together in the 2nd half.

Not a huge shock the Spurs lost since Manu was out.

Was very, very surprised the Hornets beat LA in LA today.

Eventually Rose chucking up 25+ shots a game is going to hurt the Bulls.

Maybe its just me, but i see the Heat or the Celtics rolling over the bulls when they finally meet.

Yes.

I think it will be the Celtics in the Finals again.

Rose is a beast, but once they face better teams, like the C's or Heat, or Magic if they advance.

Rose won't be able to drive on Dwight inside.

Bulls haven't looked that impressive, good team, but are another year away, ala like the Cavs last year.

I always thought it'd be Bulls vs Celtics and the Bulls youth might be a little too much for the Celtics. But they have been pathetic, and I gotta take the Celtics now. So I was never so high on the Bulls, but I did think they'd represent the East.




I actually think the Hawks win in 7. I think I'd rather have the Magic advance, but I just gotta feeling the Hawks win in 7. IF the Hawks do come out, I also think they might upset the Bulls.

I said i wouldn't be surprised if they made a deep run to the Finals or lost in the 1st round.

IF they do make it to the 2nd round, i think they beat the Bulls. Dwight inside would give Rose fits, and we matchup well with them. Jameer usually has big games on Rose.

They'd beat the Hawks in 5.

He wont need to drive on Dwight because Orlando wont mee them. That would reqire the magic to beat the hawks which is doubtful.

Very funny, not.

It's not doubtful, and if they play the way they did the first game, you're probably right about that.

Rose had 6 assists and 6 turnovers. Deng, Bogans, and Joke went a combined 6 for 28. When a team defends Rose like the Pacers did, those shooting percentages and Rose's assist to turnover ratio has to be off the charts. The Pacers play great team defense, but Rose and those other three have to do a better job of taking advantage of that.

I don't really care who wins, but I like Dwight, so prob Magic. But Hawks wouldn't upset me either.

Story of the game, everytime they got close, Atl made a shot, Orlando didn't play well at all, that was the game to steal.

Now with JRich out Game 4, probably go down 3-1..

Yeah, he was dumb, can't believe he lost his cool that much in that kind of situation. Understand it's heated, but he wasn't even the one who that dude (not even gonna try to spell his name) was mad at. Guess the 'minor' headbutt sparked it, but he should know better. Could be very costly. Wonder if Hawks dude will get suspended too?


Same thing with Nuggets game two, every time we'd go on a big run to just about cut it to single digits, Durant would knock down a trey. Meh...

Zaza and JRich are probably both suspended, i doubt we'll win, if we do, i'd be shocked..

I had no idea what he was doing, Dwight gets hit like that every game, no need to go apesh** about it.

I wasn't expecting the series to make an unexpected turn like this though. I mean out of the people who voted, I'm the only one who chose the Hawks to win, the fact that the series may very well be over in 5 games, is shocking. I thought it would at least go 6 games.

Looks like Lakers should dispatch the hornets easily enough. Still though, i've yet to see what i did the last two seasons, they don't look the same as the past two championship teams, either of those teams would be on course for a sweep right now. Imo if Lakers run into Portland next round, who they historically struggle with, they'll be in for a real fight. Even after that, i'd fancy OKC's chances against them in the WCF, they're the only team that's really shone in the playoffs so far.

Id say it'll be one of the Bulls, Celtics or Thunder that wins it all, with the Lakers and Heat as 'maybes'

Orlando Magic guard Jason Richardson and Atlanta Hawks center Zaza Pachulia have been suspended for Game 4 on Sunday for their roles in an altercation in the final minutes of Friday's game at Philips Arena, the NBA announced Saturday.

Only it's the mavs i would be too. Portland in 7, who go on to give the lakers a hell of a series if they dont beat them outright. Write it down.
