In the spirit of TrueHoop's Stat Geek Smackdown (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/playoffs/2010/news/story?page=Smackdown-10), let's see which board member can best predict the playoffs.

Rules are simple:
5 points for each correct team selected (ie Cavs over Bulls)
2 bonus points for picking the number of games it takes (ie Cavs over Bulls in 5)

I'll tally up the score at the end of each round.
Get your predictions in now.

my picks:

West
1)L.A. beats OKC in 7
2)Dallas beats S.A. in 5
3)Phoenix beats Portland in 6
4)Denver loses to Utah in 6

East
5)Cleveland beats Chicago in 5
6)Orlando beats Charlotte in 7
7)Atlanta beats Milwaukee in 5
8)Boston beats Miami in 6


my annoying and inept explanation blurbs that are totally uncalled-for:

1) (Durant goes off, Kobe not, but experience prevails - if Bynum plays, L.A. won't need 7)
2) (much closer games than last year, but you know who wins these)
3) (Portland plays them good, but has not enough offense)
4) (Carmelo goes off against whomever Utah throws at him, but Utah outscores them collectively)

5) Chicago surprises the Cavs somewhat, but wins only one of several close games
6) don't know what I was thinking when I made that pick, other than maybe L.Brown > SVG and F the Magic
7) meh
8) Miami sucks, could be Boston in 5, but I don't care for either team and everybody is pretty much down on ol'Boston)

How I would love it if you all predicting Mavs in 5 were correct. That would simply make my April.
