    Four great series… all teams are playing their best ball right now… should be entertaining.

    • naterich21 - May 4, 2014 at 8:59 PM

      If this is the best ball the Pacers have to offer get ready for the Wizards to sweep lmao

      • asimonetti88 - May 4, 2014 at 9:11 PM

        They looked good in Game 7

      • redbaronx - May 4, 2014 at 11:22 PM

        @naterich21 – The Pacers are still a very good team despite all of their current issues. While I don’t think the Wizards can sweep the Pacers, I do think they will win the series no matter how well the Pacers play. The Wizards have a very good combo in Nene and Gortat that I think will destroy Hibbert/West in production, and you have to give the Wizards an edge in guard play. The only thing that Indiana can boast is better defense when they’re clicking, but even that is in question because the Wizards proved they can play really good defense when they’re focused, and Indiana has proven that they’re having issues on defense. So even that Indiana advantage might turn out to be a mirage.

        I’d say Wizards in 6 just because Indiana is too good to get swept, and the Wizards are still new to the playoffs. I expect the Wizards to drop a couple while they’re still figuring out how to be a winning team, but taking this series ultimately.

        No way Wizards sweep them. I love how everybody was saying Pacers were going to get beat by the Hawks, but here the Pacers are, still alive. Pacers won that series playing not near the level that they’re capable of. No one on the Wizards team will be able to contain Paul George, and Paul can lock up any1 on defense just like he did Teague. Pacers D will still put them in position to win this series.

        Prediction Pacers in 6

  2. kb2408 - May 4, 2014 at 8:34 PM

    Now the real fun begins!

  3. campcouch - May 4, 2014 at 8:59 PM

    I wasn’t a fan of OKC,but I’m so tired of hearing about the Clippers that I hope they sweep them.

  4. naterich21 - May 4, 2014 at 9:00 PM

    If something tops that Blazers-Rockets series, we’re all in for a real treat

  5. pharohislife - May 4, 2014 at 9:13 PM

    Like I said before the Playoffs began, Nets would beat Toronto and proceed to take the Heat to 6 or 7 games as their Biggest Threat in the East.

    • borderline1988 - May 4, 2014 at 10:45 PM

      wow you’re such a prophet. The Raptors came within inches of winning. As Casey said, one more loose ball, one more foul called, one more rebound or shot made, and the Raptors are going to Miami.
      Did you predict that?

      • pharohislife - May 5, 2014 at 4:50 AM

        I hope you’re joking right now.

      • pharohislife - May 5, 2014 at 12:54 PM

        Yall are big fans of what if and shouldas, that only means something in your heads and nothing when you come back to reality.

      • borderline1988 - May 5, 2014 at 5:11 PM

        I think youre missing the point.

        “that only means something in your heads and nothing when you come back to reality”

        What’s in your head is your ability to predict series winners. The Raptors came as close as a losing team could possibly get to winning the series (lost by 1 point in a Game 7). Yet you’re trumpeting your prediction-making ability. My point is, you have no idea how lucky you are that your prediction came true (if you really did predict that the Nets would win) and that one tiny bounce could have resulted in the Nets and their $200 million payroll going home.

        So get off your high horse. It was a great series between two completely evenly matched teams. Credit to the Nets who played fantastic defense on that last play and completely suffocated Kyle Lowry.

    Great round 1 hope round 2 is better……Go Clippers!!!!

  7. timcast12 - May 4, 2014 at 9:51 PM

    Trail Blazers
    Thunder
    Pacers
    Nets

    • jpa1713 - May 4, 2014 at 10:05 PM

      idiot

  8. antistratfordian - May 4, 2014 at 10:00 PM

    Thankfully the Spurs and the Thunder made it through. How far will they go? Who knows, but no one wants THAT MUCH parity.

    • money2long - May 4, 2014 at 10:18 PM

      Yeah. Add to the fact majority of people simply preferred the thunder and spurs to continue to be on tv than who they faced in the first round. Plain n simple.

  9. fanofthegame79 - May 5, 2014 at 12:43 AM

    Nothing but a guessing game, but I’m thinking Spurs, Thunder, Wizards, Heat.

    • john242322 - May 5, 2014 at 1:02 PM

      Pacers

  10. bronx77 - May 5, 2014 at 3:09 AM

    The higher seeds will all win.

  11. finsfan71 - May 5, 2014 at 7:13 AM

    So looks like the Heat will be resting for the conference finals starting the 13th.

  12. watermelon1 - May 5, 2014 at 8:49 AM

    Blazer rockets? Just because the series was evenly matched and had a last second ending doesn’t mean it was great ball.

    • paleihe - May 5, 2014 at 2:48 PM

      Basketball hipster.

  13. 25yearindyfan - May 5, 2014 at 9:09 AM

    Someone said Gortat will outplay West. That’s foolish. The Wizards will have a great chance in the series yes, but don’t make silly comments. The Wizards don’t fire up 40 three’s per game like the Hawks. The mismatches won’t be as severe.
