Just a note, until summer, Jacob Sports will not be in full out coverage of the sports world.

West:

San Antonio Spurs (1) vs. Memphis Grizzlies (8)  Its hard not to take the one seed, especially when they have the experience that the Spurs possess.  Tony Parker, Tim Duncan, and Manu Ginobli all know how to win games late in the year, Spurs show off their number one seed early.  Spurs in five.

Oklahoma City Thunder (4) vs. Denver Nuggets (5) The average fan would have given up on the Nuggets after Anthony and Billups were given away to the Knicks, but the Nuggets have as good a chance as any now! Although, as I say, you need a guard who can score at any time, in the playoffs.  The Thunder have that in superstar Kevin Durant.  Thunder in six.

Dallas Mavericks (3) vs. Portland Trailblazers (6)  Everybody has a chance to see the light of the Finals in the Western Conference, except the Spurs.  While everything is bigger in Texas, their chances of winning it all are very slim.  While Big Dirk is a great player, I believe that the Mavericks are overrated.  Upset, Trailblazers in seven!

Los Angeles Lakers (2) vs. New Orleans Hornets (7)  Kobe and company are hungry for a three-peat.  Only, that didn’t show in the last five games of the season, where the Lakers went 1-4, their only win coming against the top seeded Spurs.  Still, the Lakers will sweep here.

East:

Chicago Bulls (1) vs. Indiana Pacers (8) The Bulls are led by the Great Drive, Derrick Rose.  In marvelous fashion the Bulls won today, 104-99, after trailing the whole game.  Derrick Rose proved that his Bulls are the best, although their inexperience may give way to one game in this series..  Bulls in five.

Orlando Magic (4) vs. Atlanta Hawks (5) Late in the season Dwight Howard and Quentin Richardson both were given suspensions, a shame as the Magic have what it takes to go deep.  A monster in the post, Superman, a stellar leading guard, Jameer Nelson, and the shooting (Gilbert Arenas, JJ Redick, Ryan Anderson).  Albeit, the Hawks are a tough customer,  the Magic will be fine if they stay suspension-free.  Magic in seven.

Boston Celtics (3) vs. New York Knicks (6) If the Knicks actually decide to show up on the defensive end, this could be the greatest first round series of all time.  The Celtics big three haven’t seem as hungry as of late, but in a playoff atmosphere, you better believe the green jersey’s have an appetite.  Interesting to see how the Knicks fare in their first real test as a new group. Celtics in five.

Miami Heat (2) vs. Philadelphia 76ers (7) Outside of the state of Florida, just about every casual fan has hated on the Heat since the arrival of Lebron James and Chris Bosh.  Writers acclaimed the Heat to have the best season of all time, which they did not.  I believe the Heat are starting to mesh together well, and that they can win playoff games.  Heat sweep.

Tomorrow I hope to post my second round predictions.

Title is more than self-explanatory!

  1. Bulls extinguish Heat. How many times have we seen a game like this?  A team leads the whole game, in this case the Heat, albeit when it matters most, they trail! Leading the whole game, the Heat did, until late in the third quarter when Derrick Rose drove in for a lay up!  It was all Bulls after that, putting the lead up to nine points at one instance!  Chris Bosh shot poorly (1-18 from the field), in the Heat’s 93-89 loss to the Bulls.
  2. Martin led all scorers, with 18.

    Mello?  Nah, they’ve got the yellow! The Nuggets, with Raymond Felton, and without Billups and Anthony, beat the Celtics last night, in a game that was really the Nuggets from the start of the second quarter!  While the Celtics were without Kendrick Perkins (shipped to Oklahoma for Jeff Green), they still had their big three, leaving the question, are the Nuggets really actually good after this trade?  I think not, but they did just beat the Celtics 89-75….. Newly acquired Wilson Chandler chimed in 16 points and five rebounds off the bench.

  3. Overtime! Over-rated! When I say upset, your mind should immediately think “Big East!?”  Seeing as that conference is strong all around, boasting many upsets. The most recent one came last night, as Marquette walked into UCONN unranked, and walked out leaving Kemba Walker unhappy.  In overtime, the away team winning is very rare,  especially at the University of Connecticut!  Regardless,  Calhoun-less UCONN lost 74-67!
