Not much interesting in the East, but the West should be great right
from the start with Spurs-Clips tipping off late Sunday night.
BKN closed pretty well and I'm not sold on ATL, but this shouldn't be
much of a series, Hawks in 5
Don't really care about this series, was hoping the Raptors would have
ended up as the 3 seed because I think the Bucks would have given them
a run, and it would have given us an intriguing Bulls-Hawks series in
the 2nd round, TOR in 6.
Boston really overachieved in the regular season and are overmatched.
I think Cleveland has one off night where they don't come to play,
CLE in 5.
The Bulls are never healthy for long, but they get the benefit of
having home court and a pretty neutral environment on the road, Bulls
Two of the most exciting players in the league, but one has a far
better supporting cast, GSW in 4.
Memphis really cooled off down the stretch, and Portland isn't the
same team without Matthews. I liked both of these teams as sleeper
title contenders in Feb, but now this feels like a matchup to see who
gets slaughtered by GSW in three weeks. MEM in 7
We're three months away from the Lakers blowing their cap space on
Rondo, I think Dallas gives them a series but Harden is too much, HOU
There's a good chance this first round series will be better than
anything the East has to offer all post-season. The Clips thin bench
should be minimized with days off, but I just trust SA a little more,
SAS in 6.
