Yesterday I talked Celtics and Hawks with Jessica Camerato of CSNNE.com, today Tiffany and I look around at the rest of the league as we head into the first round of the playoffs,

I think the best first-round matchup is the Clippers vs. Grizzles, but there are going to be some other fun series. Also, I think everybody is sleeping on the Pacers, and they will continue to as they slide past the undermanned Magic. But when they start pushing the Heat in the second round people will notice.
