  • Didn’t they have 20 assists on 25 first-half field goals? That was nuts.

    well fsantos, since you are already talking predictions, i got my predictions figured out already. it’s going to be a cleveland and spurs finals once again. sorry guys, but the celtics and lakers haven’t shown me enough to convince me that there will be a rematch. the lakers don’t play any defense and the celtics bench is ridiculously underachieving. better luck next year in resuming the rivalry.

    I actually love these games when we are blowing people out because its allowing our bench to grow. The more minutes they get the better they become, it happened last year and it will happen again if we can continue to blow teams out by the end of the first half. That way we can throw bench players in with starters and see who can build chemistry. Im not worried about the cavs in a seven came series. They are really really good, but my heart is where it is and its never going to tell me they will beat us.

    Yo Mj its not a prediction – Go look at the standings its accurate playoff match ups if the season ended today. Don’t trip Mj your Bulls still has a chance to creep up – lots more games to play. Maybe we can settle this if we meet in the first round. As for your prediction Cleveland vs. Spurs Final? I respect that because “ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE”- kg.

    Lol – U were right about Devin Harris – poor dude hardly played! Maybe Vince came round for some sugar too??

    evidently, you respect my prediction, but you don’t agree with it. why not? spurs have won 4 championships, and if we look at their championship trend, this is a championship year for them. they have manu, which takes the spurs to a higher level. they have roger mason jr. and george hill, which seem better role players than any role players the celtics have. with all their players healthy, they can play better defense than anyone in this league. the lakers and the celtics got lucky last year that manu was injured, or else the lakers would have lost in the western conference finals and the celtics would have lost in the finals to the spurs. cleveland is my other choice because they have been playing great. they already made it to the finals before, and that was before lebron had a consistent sidekick like williams. they nearly beat the celtics last year without williams, and they just seem to be playing better basketball than the celtics. why not cleveland? right now, they are the better team in the east. so tell me, are my predictions that illogical?
    ok, what are your predictions now that you disagree? you really think the lakers are going to make it to the finals playing the crappy defense that they play? even the celtics defense has been subpar as of late, and you combine that with the poor bench, how can they make it out of the east? enlighten me, because i don’t see the light for either the celtics or lakers.

    You just reminded me….. Thank God we didn’t end up with Oden or Durant.
    @ MJ… The Spurs barely got past New Orleans in the second round last year. And who’s to say that Manu won’t go down with another injury, he misses a lot of time. I think it’s unlikely that they make it out of the west….. if the season ended today they would have to go through Phoenix, Denver, and @LA.
    The only problem I see with Cleveland is injuries. We’re already seeing it, Delonte, Big Z… Moe Williams and Ben Wallace will certainly miss games at some point. But the biggest thing with the Cavs is that all it takes is for Lebron to go down for just 2 games in the playoffs, and they are done. Their hopes center around him so much, that they could not survive without him for even just 2 games. Whereas if Allen, Pierce, or even Garnett went down for a couple games, the Celtics could stay afloat.
    The other thing is that Orlando very well could end up with the first seed in the East. They just went out west and beat SA, LAL, and Den… the three best teams in the west. That came right after giving Atlanta an absolute beatdown. If they come up with the number 1 seed, then Cleveland loses their home court, and will have to face Boston in the 2nd round. Even if they survive Boston (doubtful) how much will they have left to go to Orlando and win a long series and then beat the winner of the West…. I don’t see it happening.
