OT- NBA Playoffs Topic

Craziest first round in history.

Dallas-SA, OKC-MEM, IND-ATL, BKN-TOR, and LAC-GSW are all going to Game 7, while HOU-POR still has the chance to.

Home Court Advantage has meant relatively little, if anything.

Everything has been bit overshadowed with the Donald Sterling fiasco though.

While they've been exciting, they drag out too long. In the regular season, the Bulls played on consecutive days 16 times, sometimes in different cities.  But, in the playoffs, It took  them  9 days to play 5 games, and only 2 of them were travel days.  I'm sure TV has an influence, trying to get an many games as possible on weekends.

If you are a fan of basketball these playoffs have been just awesome. Great intensity, very competitive games for the most part, some awesome moments, and just a lot of fun.

It's a fun time to be a Portlander.

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.

Quick hitters:
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.
