Update To The Playoffs

One Game Down.....and Jive So Far
Eastern Conference UPDATES IN BRACKETS {}

(1)DETROIT vs. (8) Milwaukee
Nice job, BUCKS choking away a fifth seed and winding up 8th...this isn't like cross country...where low score wins!
Mike Redd is for real and will score...but this matchup is like like Green Berets against boy scouts...Detroit will win easily...4-0 or at worst 4-1.....
Rasheed shows why he's the unguardable player agianst these guys....inside/outside combo too much..and Michael Redd.....better show more or you'll wind up with your pic on milk cartons!! {HMMMM DETROIT WINS 4-1, CALLED THIS ONE PRETTY WELL, EH WHAT? }}}

(2)MIAMI vs. (7)Chicago
The Heat will win this one, but it won't be easy. Their bench, with all those guys named Jones, is gone....and Shaq/Alonzo are getting old, but D. Wade will not let them lose this series....and he's become one of the top 5 in the game today...BUT the BULLS are hot, and are a good perimeter shooting team, which MIAMI has trouble defending against..and that's the BULLS Game.. Figure the HEAT in 6....and a LOT closer than many expect. If Shaq is hurt, the BULLS could win in 6 or 7..
Heat 111, Bulls 106....getting nervous Miami fans? you won game one...but as predicted it was FAR from easy...and with a few breaks the Bulls could have won....their hustle and young legs will pay off with a long series here...{HMMM HEAT WINS 4-2....SHAQ NOT HURT, DOMINATES IN GAME 6....WE'RE ON A ROLL PREDICTING HERE!}


(3)NEW JERSEY vs. (6) Indiana
(Indiana won 2-1)
Since New Jersey's been hot lately, this looks like a mismatch. But Indiana has a tendency to play scrappy, and not give up. And Jason Kidd only seems to be able to shoot against Detroit, but with him, Vince, and Jefferson, they have more overall talent than Indiana (less Artest). But if Peja can shoot well, and Jermaine O'Neal controls the boards, this one will be an upset, but I see New Jersey in 6 or 7. so Vince Carter takes shooting lessons from that notorious bricklayer Jason Kidd.....Pacers NEVER make things easy on anybody...and could take this series...if another scorer beyond J O'Neal surfaces...Rick Carlisle has gone thru HELL this year, w/ Artest, etc....and should get some thought on coach of the year..but not enough wins
(WELL,THEN NETS WIN 4-2 SO WE SHOULDA MADE ALL THESE PREDICTIONS AS LAS VEGAS BETS, RIGHT CHARLES BARKLEY??}}

(4)CLEVELAND vs. (5)Washington
(Washington won 3-1)
LeBron will be (obviously) the dominant player in this one....and Gilbert Arenas will shoot more than Bonnie and Clyde Barrow, but it won't be enough. Cleveland is the better overall team....but does lack playoff experience. Cleveland in 5 or 6
Hmmm did I call this one? LOL....LeBron Dominated!!! he may wind up the next Michael Jordan...and actuallyhas MORE skills at an earlier age then even MJ did.....if he stays healthy and hard working, he will re-write the record books in the NBA...
{SERIES STILL GOING 3-2 CAVALIERS.....STAY TUNED...WE'RE ON TRACK SO FAR}}


WESTERN CONFERENCE
(1)SAN ANTONIO vs. (8)Sacramento

San Antonio is a funny team to watch...nobody appears to be playing all that well, but they very seldom lose! Why? best defense in the West, and nice inside/outside game with Duncan and Ginobili/Parker/Horry/etc...and they added Finley too, who will play BETTER in the playoffs.....SA in 4 the KINGS are really court jesters...against SA.
Total domination as expected 122-88 boring after about 5 minutes...put a fork in the Kings they're outta here....
{{OOOPS WE BLEW THIS ONE ....SPURS AHEAD 3-2 STAY TUNED...SACRAMENTO ESP. BONZI WELLS PLAYING WELL..BUT SPURS WILL PREVAIL}}

(2)PHOENIX vs. (7)Los Angeles

Hmm Kobe vs. the world....sorry media center darling, it isn't enough to beat the Suns, a much better overall team. And though I haven't heard his name as an MVP candidate, Shawn Marion has stepped up BIG time in the absence of Amare. Nash will control this one...though a weak defender, the boys got skills...the Lakers need to add 2 or 3 REAL NBA type players....or Bryant should sue for non support....SUNS in 5
{{ NOT DOING TOO WELL PREDICTING THE WEST...BUT DIDN'T KNOW LA WOULD BE ALLOWED TO TACKLE NASH WITH THE GAME ON THE LINE..AND STEAL THAT GAME...BUT SUNS ARE EVEN NOW 3-3..AND WILL PREVAIL}}


(3)DENVER vs. (6)Los Angeles
(Clippers 89...Nuggets 87...Hmm Carmelo vs. Elton Brand.....(hey Bulls..where would you be w/ him??) This shakes out as scoring vs. rebounding and defense...and I see the Clippers winning in 6 ...UPSET special. One down and three to go....Carmelo and crew will win one or two..but WILL lose this series....to the superior defense and rebounding team {{ CLIPPERS WIN, 4-1, OOHHHWEEE WE'RE BACK ON TRACK PREDICTION WISE!}} MEMO TO FANS...THESE AIN'T YOUR FATHER'S CLIPPERS!


(4)DALLAS vs. (5)Memphis

Even though Nowitzke is a GREAT scorer, he's WAY too soft for a 7 footer..and can be knocked off his game with physical play...and when things go bad, he has a tendency to blame teammates (always good for morale) but other than Gasol, the Grizzlies should mostly be in the CBA...so Dallas, with GREAT coaching by Avery Johnson (hey Mavs..there's this phase of the game called defense..and he has them playing it) will prevail in 4 or 5 ...but looks like a Mavs win...but both teams look REAL sloppy....and Pau Gasol is missing in action..but Dallas will win even if Mark Cuban has to suit up{{ DALLAS WINS 4-0..CAN'T BRAG ABOUT PREDICTING THIS ONE...THE GRIZZLIES NEVER WIN PLAYOFF GAMES}}

I will update and make predictions as the playoffs go on....but overall, it's DEJA VU BABY!!!! w/ the Pistons and the Spurs emerging again....but THIS time (referees allowing people to at least look at Parker/Ginobili w/o fouls) Detroit will win in 6....if called closely by the zebras, Detroit will win in 7....
Home Court advantage is no joke this time of year....
{{ STILL SEE THIS AS THE FINALS...PISTONS/SPURS...AND DETROIT PREVAILS IN 6 OR 7....}}
WILL UPDATE FOR ROUND TWO ONCE BRACKETS ARE SET.....GO PISTONS!!!
