Brooklyn did about everything they could to lose the game for the last 2 minutes, then Paul Pierce blocks a last second shot for the win.
San Antonio threw Dallas out of the gym in their Game 7.
All four second round match-ups are intriguing.
POR-SA: It's nice to think that Portland has a chance here, but that bench is a disaster. Generally young teams don't need win without some playoff adversity first, and this is where they will get it.
LAC-OKC: OKC is the favorite here, but their coach will find a way to neutralize their talent by playing plenty of Kendrick Perkins and Derek Fisher, instead of younger, better alternatives. I still like OKC to win though.
MIA-BKN: Way too much made of Brooklyn's 4-0 record vs Miami this season. 3 games were 1 one point victories, and the other went to overtime. Brooklyn definitely comes to play though. Miami looks worse than they have in previous seasons, but they still win the series.
IND-WASH: Watching Indiana play is a miserable experience at times. They have zero offensive cohesion. Every game looks like it's the first one they've ever played together. I'll take Washington if only because they play interesting basketball.
