I pull for all the home teams, so I hope they do well. Since they're owned by the same group that owns the Thrashers, I'm doubly pulling for them. I figure a stronger financial footing for the Atlanta Spirit can only benefit the Thrashers.
Yeah, awesome game, hopefully they can keep it up. Keep playing defense like that and Miami doesn't stand a chance. Here's to hoping some of the other top seeds get knocked out (Boston, Orlando, keep up the losing!) and we get a good 2nd round matchup.
is the NBA playoffs the same as NHL ? I forget this all the time.
Like do we get the winner of the cleveland series or does it go by best plays worse seeding?
i.e. say we win , clev wins, philly wins, and chi wins..... we would play Philly ?
They don't get reseeded- we play the winner of the Detroit / Cleveland series. I was just hoping for a weaker eastern conference overall if we are somehow able to hold off the Cavs after we finish the Heat.
I've always hated basketball but I have to be honest. I've really enjoyed watching the hawks in this series, and I'll probly watch them in the second round too. I guess there's just something about the home team being in the playoffs that can make you watch a sport that you don't even like.
