Default Re: NBA (Basketball) Playoffs Contest

Here are my picks:

Warriors (again, for now)
Spurs (I live less than 20 miles from their arena)
Thunder (more triple-doubles)
Rockets (the rematch will be great)
Bucks (at least one round, right?)
Raptors (Magic just isn't there yet)
76ers (the Nets had a great season, though)
Celtics (if Oladipo were playing, this would be a toss-up)

Default Re: NBA (Basketball) Playoffs Contest

My picks:

No more huge upsets.

Warriors (I expect 6 or 7 games)
Trail Blazers against either (Portland dominated their first series)
Bucks (Celtics won't pull it together enough to win the series)
Raptors (it's not the 76ers' time yet)
