    PACERS sweeps the CELTICS and the NET sweep the KNICKS
    LAKERS should take down the ROCKETS in the next show down
    as the SPURS simply dominated Memphis as DENVER still have life
    Carmello & Co gave the T-WOLVES something to think about at HOME

    now come the PISTONS who better watch out
    and the KINGS and MAVS are the hottest match up series
    KINGS will pull away in this one

    I think that it will be San Antonio vs. Detroit.

    I like Detroit now that Rasheed is playing alond side Big Ben. Their defense is sick too. I think defense wins games. I think they will surprise Indiana. The Lakers are having trouble with Houston, so I don't think they'll fair well against San Antonio. They might, maybe seeing the defending champs in the second round will wake them up a bit. Sacramento plays no "D" as does Dallas, so without defense there will be no ring. Minnesota will get to the second round and play Sacramento and win, but will lose to San Antonio in Western Conference Finals.

    yeah but the NETS are very strong i like the Pacers game plan the PISTONS
    will have lots of trouble with both of these teams I see the PACERS in the EAST
    my wild suprise will be the NETS who knows what it takes but will it be over the
    Pacers not so sure yeap the PACERS
    i think the LAKERS will fall in the second round this year and with Kobe tril maybe
    starting soon it will take the focus off the game a lot and i agree MAVS & KINGS
    lack tighter D" this will allow a team like the SPURS to bang them and rack up points
    the true underdog in the playoffs is DENVER which will not advance to the next round as the T-Wolves will wake up and know these are the playoff win or go home
    i can't see the HEAT going far at all the Wolves is the team that can play and match
    up with Duncan & the Spurs it will get even hotter down the road i see the T-Wolves
    in the WEST

    PACERS & T-WOLVES in the finals

    The Lakers have been struggling against the Rockets because of Yao Ming. No other team in the West has a center who is large enough to bother Shaq. The Spurs can upset the Lakers, but I think LA will beat them in the Western Conference Finals. In the Eastern Conference Finals I see Detriot & New Jersey. Of this match-up I see the experience of the Nets being the deciding factor.

    now i agree with that , yes the NETS will have it but the Pacers are high flying
    and seem to be hungery for a title the LAKERS are deep in depth and can be
    strong if they get by the second round i see them falling i like the T-Wolves
    but reality i have a change of heart and say SPURS vs Pacers you have open up
    some good points here Yoa is big trouble for any team but after that Houston
    is subside as a no factor or threat

    I don't see the Lakers falling to the Timberwolves, they've only gotten past the 1st round for the 1st time in 7 tries. I do think the wolves have a strong team though. The Kings have too many injuries to go all the way (which is ashame because they have the talent & will, but can never enter the playoffs with a heathly team). The only team that can beat the Lakers is the Spurs.

    It is a shame the Kings are so banged up because they have a fun team to watch. I think if they are healthy with the same roster next year they will be the team. I like the Spurs because they have guys who make big plays (Duncan, Ginoblili, Parker, Horry, Bowen) and they play tight "D". I think their defense will mess with any team and their offense is not bad either. Plus they can play half court ball against the Lakers. Lakers defense lacks against pick & roll and Shaq is not the force as far as block shots like he used to be. Plus San Antonio will go at Shaq which no other team seems to want to do. If Detroits offense continues to be ok then I think they'll upset the Pacers. Though Jermaine O'neil and Ron Artest will cause problems for Detroit. Rasheed Wallace will be the key to Detroit advancing. If Yao would go to the post instead of settling for fade aways and long range jumpers then Houston would have a chance to upset Lakers because they also kill them with the pick & roll. But he's too timid right now. Whatever team plays Lakers, go a Shaq, that's the key.

    The window of opportunity is closing for the Kings. I remember when the Bulls reached the Finals for the 1st time in 1991, Jordan said they had to win it, because there are no guarantees that they'd be back. The same is true for every team. The Kings only have a few years to be near the top before they begin to slip. Their best years have been wasted by injuries to key players.
