    The first round usually follows pretty close to the seedings. However I think things will get really interesting in the second round. I also could see Denver and Philly taking 2 or 3 games before getting eliminated. I also think both 4/5 matchups will go 6 or 7 games.

    I have a hard time seeing OKC beating Dallas. Dallas took 3 of the regular season games to the wire and that was when they were playing bad basketball.
    I think we'll see a different team tonight now that the playoffs are here and Dallas isn't coasting/avoiding contact.

    Dallas doesn't stand a chance. Thunder win the west. OKC all the way!

    Dallas has been average this season. I expect them to play better than that against the Thunder, but I don't think it will be enough. I think it will be a tough series(6 or 7 games, but I think Oklahoma is flat out better). Dallas looks really ordinary this season without Tyson Chandler.

    I think Denver could be a challenge to the Lakers.

    With Rose, I don't think the Sixers really had a chance of stealing more than a game or two. But I think the Sixers have a decent chance despite being a game down.

    I hope so. I think that Indiana is the best chance of stopping the finals from winning the East.

    There is no one in the East able to beat the Heat.
    In the West it will either be, IMO, the Spurs or Lakers.

    Personally, I would like to see a Lakers-Heat finals.
    Then I would like to see the Lakers win...and everyone finally realize that Kobe is the best basketball players since MJ and one of the greatest ever.

    I DO like the Heat they are coming along well in about one more year they maybe there...BUT...... they want no parts of Boston
    Heat have NO bench and that hurting them
    IF Boston can get pass Atlanta then they will crawl on top of the East, its all about the Match up.

    KOBE IN NYCE !! all i can say about that.

    Celtics beat the Heat?
    Never happen (although I wish it could).
    Celtics are awful on the road and their bench is not good at all.
