    2 games already down but the competitive one is now - Boston-Miami. Its not a given that Boston will win the series by any stretch.

    The home seeds prevailed in the east, but the only one I saw was the 4th qtr of the Cavs-Bulls game.

    Rose showed why he was a number one pick, but I don't see a possible sweep here ala the Cavs over the Pistons last year especially with a well rested Lebron.

    KG has been suspended for game 2 after throwing that elbow at Richardson. That's going to be a series to watch for sure.

    I watched part of Milwaukee-Atlanta game. That's looking like the Hawks will sweep.

    KG has lost some of his cred in the NBA offices...Wonder if Lebron or Kobe or even Wade would have been suspended??:stirthepot:

    If that had been LeBron, Richardson would've been suspended for at least 2 games for ruthlessly ramming the king's elbow with his face.

    That's a Rip. I have been rooting for Miami but I don't want to see Boston go down that way, built in excuse and all. Who knows, it could inspire the rest of the guys.


    Poor Bulls. They can only get just so close before a put back, made 3, or some spectacular play by LBJ widens the gap again. I have gained a lot of respect for Noah, looks like a 3 on 1 brawl or something going against that Clev front court.

    Yeah that Noah is a tough SOB... if we had two front men like him and Ben Wallace pre 2008 we'd still be in the mix despite our other issues.... won't mean we would win, but we would still be playing now...

    Celtics/Heat looks like it's going to be the only interesting series out of the conference this round. Interesting to see how it goes. With all of Boston's flaws, Miami has proven it can't win a series with a similar team with just Wade being exceptional.

    I'm a huge KG fan so I'm pulling for the Celts. Dumb move with the elbow, especially for someone who seems all bark.

    Bulls did what we almost did last year and steal a victory from the prohibitive favorite Cavs.

    I still see a Cavs series win here in 5 as the Bulls had to hold on to win despite leading by 20 pts at one time. Another time out or better clock management and that shot at the end by Parker may have dropped and sucked the air out of the United Center or whatever they call it these days. I am thinking that Parkers' sister Candice may have made that shot...:)

    Bulls are in an odd situation. No one seems to be interested in talking to the coach. They all just look away or grimace when he calls them over. I watched the local Chicago feed because TNT was breaking up all the time and the announcers (if you can glorify Stacy King with the title) were openly questioning who was on the floor and who wasn't. I've never heard home announcers saying stuff like that before.

    Probably making a point about that rumored Stuckey for Rhondo trade that Joe turned down last year.

    It goes much deeper than that, Max. It's definitely a trend by now. :)

    Paul Pierce's nickname is "The Truth".

    His buzzer beater was straight up, 100%, absolute Mr. Big Shot. The Truth. Killer basket.

    That is why the Celts might be able to knock off Cleveland.
