    Houston in 6
    -Feel like they will go 3-0, choke 2 closeout games before finishing it off. Wolves just have too much talent to not get at least one game.
    OKC in 7
    -Jazz will play them tough and it will take awhile for the OK3 to figure out who is going to play hero-ball.
    Someone in 7
    -This might end up being the most competitive first round series. It's about time for Lillard or AD to step up and take there team to the next level.
    Warriors in 5
    -Here comes the annual counting-the-Spurs-out time but they really have not look great this season. Warriors could use this first round to get back into playoff shape.

    Raptors in 6
    -Wizards are stumbling into the playoffs but can Wall power his team through against a league best (but untested) bench?
    Cavs in 5
    -Pacers season has been most surprising but they are facing Lebron.
    76ers in 6
    -Team Process has been rolling finishing off the season, they are rather young but they have many great talents. Honestly haven't seen enough of Miami this season.
    Bucks in 5/6
    -Stevens might be able to sneak in a game or two without their two best players. Giannis is clearly the best player of this series but the Bucks haven't been able to take the next step from last season.

    Only series worth checking are OKC-Jazz and Blazers-Pelicans .

    Bucks are so bad , I wouldn't be surprised if they lost to a Kyrie, Smart , Theis less C-bags team .

    I hope the Heat will upset the Process but it's not happening .

    I like this NOP team , was great to see them play D , Jrue was fantastic and didn't know Mirotic had this type of effort in him .

    They don't have a single reliable back up big though , it's a big weakness

    Crazy ending in C Bags -Bucks regulation time .clutch 3 points shooting from both
    Now it's OT.And of course C Bags won after both Giannis and Bledsoe got six fouls.

    Wow 13- 1 run by Cavs. Nance and Clarkson contributing with winning plays closing the deficit.

    lol, good luck with all that...

    at least fultz appears on his way to a happy ending.

    seems really unlikely that the leonard story goes well--at least not for everyone.
