NBA playoffs version:
The match ups are set. FINALLY! And I will break down every match up and tell you why your team may or may not move to the next round. We will start with the East today and end with the West tomorrow. Let's get to it.
Atlanta vs. Boston:
Boston is probably the favorite to win the title at this point. Atlanta is just straight up not good enough to beat the green team. Horford and Josh Smith down low will be the key. If they can make Garnett work on that much harder on D, they might when a game. Otherwise this series is a sweep. Boston 4-0.
Cleveland @ Washington
I give Cleveland the edge in this series just on the fact they have home court, and I don't see King James letting his squad lose a game 7 on the shores of Lake Erie. If Arenas can get his swag back and the Wiz can steal game 2, they have a shot. My prediction: Cleveland in 6.
Toronto vs. Orlando
Toronto has no answer for Howard. Although Nesterovic has played well of late, Dwight will dominate his ass down low. Orlando wins a close series 4-3.
Philadelphia vs. Detroit
Don't be surprised if Mo Cheeks and the crew take the Pistons to 6 or 7 games. These guys are young athletic and have nothing to lose. But at the end of the day, Sheed won't let his Pistons lose this one. Pistons take it 4-2.
Stop back tomorrow for my Western Conference picks.
