    ***NBA Playoffs Thread***

    Actually kinda excited for the playoffs this year. Lots of storylines. Will the Heat win back-to-back? Can the Lakers win despite no Kobe? Can the Thunder make it back to the finals? Is this the Spurs last hurrah? Can the Celtics rally around the tragedies to upset the Knicks?

    I'm rooting for the Thunder, but with no Kobe and the mess all year, I would think it kind of fun if the Lakers and their coach who looks just like Cliff Clavin actually did something.

    Re: ***NBA Playoffs Thread***

    Im thinking we see Thunder vs Heat again.

    I really wish the Rockets would have won last night. A win for them puts them at 7, and I think they have just as good a shot as any to make it to the conference finals. Unfortunately, they run into the buzzsaw round 1 now.

    Wouldnt be surprised to see the Lakers beat the Spurs in 7, Knicks will beat the Celtics handily..

    West:
    Thunder vs LAC
    Denver vs LAL

    Thunder vs Denver

    East:
    Miami vs Brooklyn
    NY vs Indiana (This will be a great series, best besides the Finals, maybe better)

    Miami vs NY

    Miami vs OKC

    I think we see a re-match. Miami win in 6.

    Re: ***NBA Playoffs Thread***

    The question isn't if the Heat make the finals, it's how many games will it take them to do so?

    On the other side, there are some great matchups. Harden vs his old OKC team. Rematch of last years 7 game series between the Clips & Griz. Warriors vs Denver in a first team to 150 points wins matchup. I think the Lakers vs Spurs is the least interesting matchup of the bunch which is saying something.

    I think we need to use quotes with any talk of the Knicks being "upset". It's the Knicks.

    Re: ***NBA Playoffs Thread***

    I see it being pretty chalky.

    East:
    Heat in 4
    Knicks in 7
    Pacers in 6
    Nets in 7

    Heat over Nets in 5
    Knicks over Pacers in 6

    Heat over Knicks in 6

    West:
    Thunder in 4
    Spurs in 5
    Denver in 5
    Clippers in 7

    Thunder over Clippers in 7
    Spurs over Denver in 7

    Thunder over Spurs in 7

    Finals:
    Miami over Thunder in 7


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    Re: ***NBA Playoffs Thread***

    It sure looks like a Finals rematch, which is ok by me. If the Pacers can advance to the conference finals they could give Miami a run just because they match up with the Heat better than anyone else in the league, plus with the hate between those two teams that would be a throughly entertaining six or seven game series.

    Don't think Miami gets 8 in a row as I don't think LeBron stays there that long, but it's quite possible that whatever team LeBron plays on will win 8 in a row.

    I will not watch a single second of the Pacers & Nets first round series. What a **** show the East is.

    I'm sure the Pacers-Hawks series will get most of their games sent to NBATV, it's a yearly tradition for Atlanta.

    I still think the Knicks or the Pacers can cause some trouble for the Heat in the Conference Finals...
