Well the matchups are set...and there should be some intriguing first round series. 

 

It's deflating the Heat are not in the playoffs, but I'm looking forward to all the playoff series matchups and talking about them right in here.

Here's the NBA Playoff Bracket...

My predictions:

East

Boston vs. Chicago:

- Will be an interesting and close series, however the lack of depth will hurt the Bulls the most. I believe Rondo will be Chicago's most important player. At the end of the day though, IT and the supporting cast will be too much for the Bulls to handle in a game 7 in Boston.

     Celtics in 7.

 

Washington vs. Atlanta:

- I believe the Hawks match up well against the Wizards, and have an edge in experience. If Howard can be assertive, Atlanta has a good chance of winning this series.

     Hawks in 6.

 

Toronto vs. Milwaukee:

- Giannis is a superstar in the making, but this is his very first time being on the big stage. How will he perform under pressure? If he plays the way he is capable of playing, the Raptors are in trouble. Milwaukee has the depth and length to cause some major problems for Toronto.

     Bucks in 6.

 

Cleveland vs. Indiana:

- Lebron James vs. Paul George. We're about to witness a great showdown, and the Pacers may just be able to catch a struggling Cavs team by surprise. Cleveland's experience is what will ultimately win them this series.

     Cavaliers in 7.

 

 

What are your predictions people?

 the two series i will be following closely  is

chicago bulls vs boston celtics 

If chicago gets playoff wade, watch out for an upset. 

cleveland cavaliers vs indiana pacers

i dont think indy has much of a chance, but i do think they can extend the series and tire the cavs for the later rounds which could have a big effect on the overall playoffs as lebron has showed signs of fatigue this season.

 

my top three Sleeper teams that could surprise imo :  Blazers , hawks, wizards.

 

Prediction to win it all : Portland Trail Blazers 

Damian lilliard is vastly underrated imo. this could be the year of the upsets. should be exciting.

lol...Stevenson is going to cause an injury to a Cleveland player somehow...maybe even LeBron or that tender Kyrie knee. Watch out Cavs.

If the Bucks only have a 17% chance of winning, I might just have to throw some money down on them. I wonder what Vegas has them at..

I like the Bucks in that series too.  Giannis is going to eat.

Vegas has them at (+310), and Toronto at (-390). Definitely think there's some money to be made here.

well, turning this game off. no reason to watch this cavs pacers game. Refs have completely taken over the game. what a joke. 

 

That game isn't over yet...Cavs defense sucks. They're shooting 61%, if that cools off a bit this will be a close game in the end.

Wow, CJ with the open look to win the game...not to be.

Cavs VERY, VERY lucky to get the win. Knew it would be close...Cavs D sucks.
