    Official NBA Playoffs 2008 Thread

    I'm a little late on this, but nonetheless...

    East

    Atlanta vs Boston - Boston in 4
    Philadelphia vs Detroit - Detroit in 5
    Washington vs Cleveland - Washington in 7
    Orlando vs Toronto - Orlando in 6

    The only thing worth noting here is that I've taken Washington over LeBron and the Cavs. With Arenas back and playing at a high level, the Wizards have three legit all-stars. LeBron is the best player in the league, but his team is awful.



    West

    Denver vs LA - LA in 6
    Dallas vs New Orleans - New Orleans in 7
    San Antonio vs Phoenix - Phoenix in 6
    Utah vs Houston - Utah in 6


    I like the Nuggets to give LA a little bit of trouble with Iverson and Melo lighting up the scoreboard, but it won't be enough..Denver plays little defense. I don't like where the Spurs are headed right now. I think they're old and they got the worst possible first round match-up, a team that's hungry and in search for revenge. Shaq will be the difference. I like New Orleans over Dallas because the Hornets are a real team.. led by the amazing Chris Paul. Dallas was thrown together and haven't worked out all the kinks yet.

    Well, Im not going to go in depth about the playoffs, all I can say just from watching the Spurs/Suns game yesterday is I really hate the Spurs. Also im not near as excited for the Raptors playoff chances as I was 4 months ago, what the hell happened to them? The best shooter on the team whos getting payed 5 mill is getting no plays ran for him at all now.

    Then, now, forever.

    Shocked to see the Pistons lose tonight, but that's always the risk they run with how they manage the game. They always keep everyone within arms reach and tonight it came back to bite them when the Sixers got hot.

    I still see Detroit cruising though. this was a wakeup call.

    Detroit has been on "coast" mode the past couple of weeks because they locked up second seed a while back. A lot of bench players were getting more court time, and as a result, as Blade said it's a "wakeup call".

    No biggie..but let's get this on track.

    Yeah, unless Boston just plays downright sloppy one night, there's no way this shouldn't be a sweep.

    Re: Official NBA Playoffs 2008 Thread

    Fuck.. I was expecting a lot more out of this first round. The Suns have blown two close games in San Antonio and are in danger of not even making this a series.. Could I see them winning both games in Phoenix? Sure. but one slip up and they're toast. It's too bad. I hate the Spurs and I hate watching them play.

    New Orleans is awesome. Chris Paul is awesome. I'd love to see them put Dallas away early. Paul might be the prettiest player in the NBA.

    Boston won in another route. Who's surprised? I just hope Pierce is ok.

    Look at Chris Paul's stats from the first two games against Dallas. Blow your f'n mind.

    Re: Official NBA Playoffs 2008 Thread

    the most intriguing thing about the playoffs thus far has to be this Sixers/Pistons series I am currently watching.

    Sixers were a team that was horrible during most of the season, but they started to pour it on at the end.. they've found the right mix on the court, bunch of young athletic players who want to run and with Dalembert protecting the rim on defense..

    So they're up now 2-1 in the series on the heavily favored Pistons and leading at the half by 10 here in game 4.

    Re: Official NBA Playoffs 2008 Thread

    Is anyone else shocked Boston lost 2 to Atlanta? I mean I think they'll still win the series... but whatsupwitdat? I seriously thought Boston was a lock for a sweep. I was even skeptical about calling it a five game series.

    Detroit as well. I figured a five-game series here that Detroit would lose one in Philly but never in my dreams did I see 2-2. Again I don't think Detroit is going to lose but...wtf.

    Atlanta and Philly teams to watch next year?

    I'm not really on this because the Hawks did win them both at home but wow.

    Boston = Whole city on Superbowl hangover

    IMO of course, Or it could just be that The Hawks are a decent team when they feel like playing.

    Well.. the records of both the Hawks and Sixers are misleading as well. Yes, I'm shocked, but these two teams aren't the same two teams that began the season and looked dreadful.. Atlanta as an example, added Mike Bibby as the trade deadline.

    These two teams have a lot in common, actually. First.. they have both found everyone a role on their team.. finally.. they are both athletic as hell and very young which creates problems for the slow-paced veteran teams of Boston and Detroit, and they both have a solid point guard who can create when the offense breaks down.. Atlanta with Bibby and the Sixers with Andre Miller.

    I still see Detroit and Boston both advancing, but yes.. these two teams could be decent next year.

    Hawks are good talented and young. But I seriously am totally shocked Boston's lost two now. I don't think Atlanta can win in the Garden so I think Boston is still gonna win. But I've almost never been so sure about a sweep in my life. I figured Toronto/Orlando would be 2-2 not Boston/Atlanta

    Yeah I will be most shocked if either team wins another game to be honest. I don't see it happening. The addition of Bibby was tremendous for Atlanta. This is a very very interesting team. But both Philly and ATL are playing out of their minds as of late.

    I guess well see, I think if the Hawks pull even one win in the garden, theyve got the series otherwise the Celtics have it locked still. The Celtics made a big mistake trading Al Jefferson >.>, he would have dominated this series

    Then, now, forever.
