I'll take every higher seed except I'm going with Memphis to "upset" LAC.

5 WC teams have better records than the 2nd seed in the East. Looking at the East playoff picture, it's not fair to see al the WC teams competing against each other.

It will be a more entertaining matchup but Houston really screwed themselves last night.

Really looking forward to the Denver-GS series. I would be mildly surprised if either team wins even one road game.

Clippers-Grizz could be good too, but it's an awful matchup for the Clips IMO. Their halfcourt offense will really struggle against Memphis's defense, and the Grizzlies' frontcourt will force Blake to spend more energy defending than he wants to.

I can't see the Heat losing more than 3 games before the finals. The east doesn't impress me much.

Memphis is my darkhorse. A team with D like that in the playoffs could cause trouble in the playoffs.

Lets see if OKC can go back and try get revenge.

Going to both Knicks and Nets game today is definitely possible, which I found to be pretty sweet.

Why do the Lakers always start on Sundays regardless of their position in the playoff bracket? Last year, they were the 3rd seed and the 3-6 matchup started Sunday. This year's 3-6 matchup starts today (Denver and GSW).

Sorry, meant Brandon Jennings. That's why you don't watch baseball while posting in the NBA thread.

I don't quite know how the Celtics have the lead after that first quarter, but they do

Definitely the one I'm most looking forward to see just from a basketball perspective. Should be great fun to watch.

Celtics know how to move the ball around. The Knicks not so much.

Knicks have been an excellent 3rd quarter team this year. It's always been the quarter when they go on a run and set themselves up for a comfortable 4th.

Pierce is a notorious Knicks killer in the 4th, especially at MSG. If it's a close game heading into the 4th, I'm not comfortable if I'm a Knicks fan.

Avery Bradley might be really good defensively but he can't shoot or pass.

Knicks should be happy with that win. It didn't come pretty, but they're up 1-0. Knicks stepped up on D though in the 2nd half big time.
