Western Conference predictions Round 1:
#1 Rockets over #8 Wolves 4-1
#4 Thunder over #5 Jazz 4-2

#2 Warriors over #7 Spurs 4-2
#3 Blazers over #6 Pelicans 4-3

Eastern Conference predictions Round 1:
#1 Raptors over #8 Bullets 4-2
#5 Pacers over #4 Cavs 4-3 - No I am not drinking or being a homer :roflmao:. I actually think the Pacers have a better Roster from top to bottom and can pull this upset off. Not sure the Cavs can handle the Pacers Big's and Oladipo is a legit dangerous All-Star as in borderline SuperStar. Yeah the Cavs have the LeBron factor and the NBA gives him calls and needs him for NBA ratings but I smell an upset coming. If the Pacers play their game and can ignore the REFS, they will be fine. They have to steal 1 of the 1st 2 games though or it's over. I think in Game 7 it just comes down to who wants it more. Yeah LeBron will have HCA but I have watched the Pacers all season unlike the media and they scrap everynight and play 100%. Cavs play poor Defense and take nights off a lot. SHOCK THE WORLD TIME IS COMING, heard it here 1st as the LeBron reign comes to an end in the East.

#2 Celtics over #7 Bucks 4-3, Despite the C's injuries I still think they win in 7. Bucks just don't impress me. Celtics are well Coached and will find a way to get it done in this series.
#3 Sixers over #6 Heat 4-2, Even with the status of Embiid in the air, I still think the Sixers will take down the Heat in 6.

-Before the season started I had the Thunder making the WCFinals but losing to the Warriors. I am not so sure the Thunder don't win it all to be honest. They have been dicking around all season IMO and now have a favorable matchup in Round 1. Westbrook just became the 1st player in NBA history to average a TDB 2 years in a row. For shits and giggles, Paul George had 40 tonight with 8-14 from 3.

you still rolling with the thunder? You said they would be the second seed right? They damn near didn't make the playoffs. I'm just messing with you 3peat. I do believe that they match up decent with the rockets better than golden state

Nice hearing from you again Kirby. It's better for the Lakers if the Thunder lose because of the possibility of acquiring PG. Having said that I don't see them losing to the Jazz. Yeah I had Thunder #2, they finished 4th instead but still stayed out of the Warriors bracket anyway. What luck but the Rockets are no joke.

i don't think it matters how the Thunder perform in regards to PG. He knows what he's going to do already.

Well, it's better than blasting off with the Rockets, or howling with the Wolves . . or getting in tune with the Jazz . . or following the Trailblazers . . or jingling and a-jangling with the Spurs (ok I reached for that one).

So far the Playoffs have been fun to watch. The Pacers winning at Cleveland in Game 1 was just so damn stunning and that series has 7 games written all over it. How about old man Wade putting it to Philly tonight? That series is now 1-1. Warriors rolled tonight though over the Spurs and now are up 2-0. Hell they don't even need to Curry to beat that team :roflmao:. Spurs look old and done to me.

Dwanye turning the clock back, coming up big vs. an Embiid-less Philly team. And the Curry-less Warriors heat up late vs. the Horse Abusers. Warriors vs. Raptors is my prediction.

If the Pacers get by the Cavs, I have Pacers/Warriors in the Finals. If the Pacers beat LeBron, their confidence will be sky high in the East. It's amazing how ESPN still gives the Pacers no respect, it's not like they won Game 1 by one at the buzzer on a fluke. They kicked the Cavs ass by 18 points and looked like the more athletic/quicker team. The Cavs had no answer for Oladipo. Its the best of 5 now and Pacers have HCA! Good luck winning in Indy, Cleveland :roflmao:. I know how Good the Pacers are because I have watched them all season, been Posting it in here for months. Only team I feared in the East was the Cavs because of LeBron, if Pacers get by them they will be hanging their 2nd Eastern Conference Title Banner in NBA history. They aren't good enough to beat a healthy Warriors team though but I think they win at least 1 game, maybe 2 against them. They wont get swept.
