    Playoffs start tomorrow - who do you think will be upset on day 1?

    My money is on MIA, i think nobody talks about Philly, there is a lot of hype about Knicks. I think PHI can do some damage. if elton brand has a big game inside it could be trouble for Lebron and co. I think sixers can play defense and they can pack the paint and make the Heat shoot jumpers.
    they can also play the running game. this could be one interesting series. I think this could go to 7 games. This is where rubber meets the road for the Heat, they have 2 great players and 1 very good player and then the bottom falls off. I just don't see who is going to be the bench guy that can step up for Miami. these guys could get worn down as the series goes longer.

    ufff..I like Philly to win a few games actually..Lookout for Indiana, they are a good rebounding team. NOt that they are going to win the series but they can win a few games...who plays center for the bulls???

    we will see. To me, Miami is most mentally fragile team in the playoffs. They have not been able to handle close games all season. For their sake if they win , they better win by a huge margin.

    I believe that Portland may win against the Mavericks.  Dallas doesn't do well in the playoffs.  Portland is a very good team and has been playing well.

    True. I forgot Dallas is playing tonight. That might be the toughest series of all in the first round. some even predict a POR victory in that series.
    Can Indiana pull this off?...just dreamin.

    Indiana has played very well today.  I believe they have lead the entire game.  it will be very interesting if they win today.  Not sure it will happen, but anything is possible.

    Not far from reality! they almost stole the first one. I couldnt watch it but I called it...Granger and Collison are very underrated players.

    I watched it and Larry was almost smiling after Tyler Hansbrough completed that three point play to make it a ten point lead with just under four minutes left in the game. I was definitely smiling, but that didn't last long thanks to Derrick Rose.

    I can imagine. The more I see the Bulls success, the more I believe that the team that stops DRose, that is the team that will beat them. Nothing special about the other players. Just Rose rising to the occasion.

    After watching them yesterday, I definitely agree with you.  It will be interesting to  watch the rest of this series and see who else steps up for both teams.  I was definitely surprised by how well Indiana played in the first game.

    There will be no upsets in the opening round, not even Portland.    

    The Indy/Chicago game really wasn't as close as the media made it out to be. I love that Indy played tough ball in Chicago, but no one on that team can come close to stopping Rose (or Korver, for that matter).  The by-product of that game was Chicago learning where to tune-up its defense.

    Celts will beat the Knicks; Miami will beat the Sixers; Chicago will beat Indy; Orlando will beat Atlanta. 

    None of these underdogs is capable of a series upset.  They may get a game or two off their opponents, but nothing more.
