Time to get into round two of the NBA Playoffs! Today is half the games that start on Sunday, tomorrow we will do the other half.
Steve: Golden State in 6. In order for Memphis to have a chance they have to shut down the offense. The Warriors are just too good at home and will take one on the road.
David: Man did Golden State impress me in round one. The came in, did the job, and sat at home. I gotta say though, without a Conley at 100%, the Grizziles playoff experince isn’t going to mean anything. I’ve gotta go Warriors here, and quickly. Most likely in 5, 6 if Conley can be back to normal by game 3.
Steve: Houston in 5. I think the Spurs took everything out of the Clippers and the Rockets cruised to victory over Dallas. Chris Paul may have an Achilles injury that could limit him.
David: Little ticked my Spurs didn’t nail down the series. On Paper, I have to think the Clippers have the edge. I’m not a big Doc fan, but even I have to admit he has the coaching advantage. I’m not sure the crappy bench is going affect the Clippers this series, since the Rockets are not exactly 10-deep either. I’ll take the Clippers- only because Paul < Harden , Blake > Dwight and Jordan > Josh Smith – 6 games
Steve: In calling upset. Wizards in 6. Atlanta didn’t impress me against a bad Nets team. Washington is rested and will take down the top seed.
David: This one is a hard one to guess. I’ve always been a Jeff Teague guy, and he’s always played John Wall very well. Paul Millsap and Al Horford are hurting, and they get to play with Gortat and Nene. I am not a member of the Whitman has figured out how to coach Club. I just don’t know what to make of this series. I guess I’ll take the chances that the Wizards will blow a game, and let the Hawks hang around long enough where Horford can play well enough to take the series in 7
David: Gotta go with Cleveland in 7. I’d put a good bit of money on the Bulls. But with Rose being in and out, they don’t really know what they have. I think Mozgov is the key player here. If he can put good minutes on the floor and let LeBron bang Pau instead of Noah, they take the series.
Steve: Cleveland in 7. Going to be a tough brutal series. The Cavs are short handed but the Bulls seem to not be able to capitalize on things like this. LeBron will take over a Game 7 for the win.
