Thought I would get things started with my Round 1 predictions.
I actually think this might be a closer series than most might think. The Bulls are playing good ball right now and have Noah healthy again. The Cavs have rested Lebron for over a week, which I think was a mistake....I think he will be rusty. The Bulls steal one in Cleveland and push the series to 6 games.
Cavs win 4-2
Orlando vs. Charlotte
This should be a good one. The Bobcats have a big frontline to match-up with Howard and are a very physical team. I still think Orlando is a better overall team and have the playoff experience. Would'nt hurt my feelings to see a upset though.
Magic win 4-2
I don't follow either of these teams much, but I have seen more of the Hawks. They have good depth and with Jamal Crawford coming off the bench, I think this will be a short series.
Hawks win 4-1
Boston vs. Miami
Looking forward to this one. Boston is aging and Rasheed Wallace was a huge bust, but I still think they got enough to get by the Heat, just barely. Wade is a one man wrecking crew for the Heat, and should keep them in most of the games. I think KG is the key to this series, and if he plays well, Boston escapes.
Boston wins 4-3
I`ll try to do the West match-ups tonight.
