    The Pistons are not in it, but there will be some drama for sure. I can't wait for the Clippers-Warriors series.

    I'm rooting for the old farts in San Antonio.

    I would be very surprised if any team other than Indiana gets out of the East. The Heat are not going to get past the Pacers this year.

    I am wondering if the Pacers can get by the Hawks.:confused:

    Saturday and Sunsay are the 2 best NBA days of the year.

    I've spent most of the day thinking about this and I think it's going to be Golden State v Houston in the Finals.

    I'm guessing you mean the conference finals?

    No way does Golden State get past San Antonio. Its not happening. Personally I'm rooting for the Clips/Thunder in the WCF and Thunder/Heat Finals. Indiana looks gassed and no one else in the East has the firepower on either end to get past Miami. Smart money is on the field for these finals but I'm definitely thinking that its Miami's to lose.

    Spurs are regular season over achievers.

    I was being sarcastic. I think Miami will win. In the end you'll have to beat them/Bron 4 times to eliminate them.

    I might be rooting for the Clips also. Paul is a big time player.

    The Paul I remember hasn't exactly lit it up in the playoffs during his career yet....

    Crazy finish to the Clips-Warriors game with Warriors drawing first blood. The Clippers had several chances, but it was choke-fest at the charity stripe on both ends of the floor during the final seconds. Finally Klay Thompson made 1/2 and put the game away. Some questionable calls in the end. This is going to be a great series.

    So far, lower seeds are 2-for-2. That's bound to change with Pacers and Thunder both playing this afternoon.

    The playoffs are already started with two road wins by the Nets and Warriors.

    Everybody wanted to play the Raptors in the first round and the vets on the Nets took care of business in Canada taking game one.

    Now you know why Blake is the Clippers MVP....with him regulated to the bench for all but 19 minutes of the game, the Warriors took avantage of the middle on both ends of the court.....however the missed ft's by the Clippers especially Paul in the end and the five by DJ killed them. They got to win game 2 or the team with the third best record in the league will be out of the playoffs in the first round just like last season.

    Haha, wow. Atlanta just beat Indiana. Roy Hibbert looks awful out there. Paul George with a good stat line, until you look at the shooting splits.

    Millsap still looks like the FA steal of the decade for Atlanta.

    The Hawks pose a match up issue with the Pacers, who will probably still win it, but it will go 7.

    Memphis is getting chewed out by OKC. They just don't have any offense. Its hard to watch. Not too many superstar calls though so I like the game.

    I felt like they would get swept, especially without Al Horford. Beating IND at home is no easy feat.

    Memphis outscore the Thunder 31-13 in the 3rd quarter to make it interesting.
