    What are your thoughts on it so far? Two games into each series, the Clippers/Warriors, Rockets/Blazers, Hawks/Pacers, and Nets/Raptors series have been highly entertaining. I don't think the Pacers could have drawn a worse opponent, match-up wise, than the Hawks. That team pretty much neutralizes Hibbert and brings him out of the paint on defense where Teague then has room to do his thing. Clippers/Warriors has also been insanely entertaining. The Clippers got screwed in Game 1 of that one.

    The Pacers need to pull the plug on Roy Hibbert and bench him if they want any shot of winning this series. He's a cotton ball as a big man and hasn't been the same since he took that elbow from LeBron. I also have my doubts as to why people call Paul George a superstar. Four... FOUR shots in the 4th quarter last night and he looked timid at best. If you're a superstar, you demand the ball in the 4th and make those shots.

    The West is fun to watch. The OKC/Memphis series has been great, it's team ball from physical vets vs the talent of OKC, I hope Memphis pulls it out. I thought the Rockets would handle Portland, but wow Aldridge is a beast. Clippers/GS has been disappointing, close series, but we haven't seen a game when both play great. I hope Spurs beat the Mavs, I think they'll pull it out.

    I've been watching more hockey in the early games and the East is kind of boring. Caught the Nets/Raptors and I have to say that Pierce and KG look old

    Yeah the East has been very boring. Even though the Nets took the Heat in all four games this year, Pierce and KG look so tired that I think the Heat would blow by them in a best of seven series. OKC and Memphis has been the best series of the first round, hands down. Each game is close, physical, and highly contensted. OKC had to be disappointed that they drew Memphis in the first round as I don't think there's another team in the West that matches up as well with them. The Rockets only delayed the inevitable.

    I hate the the league suspended him for this game for a nothing retaliation. The league didn't want Memphis to advance, no Randolph changed the game entirely. Gasol kind of plays like Noah, they needed Randolph in the post to slow the game down and work Ibaka and Perkins. Very disappointed in the league with this one, it ruined a good series.

    My predictions:

    Clip over OKC in 6 - same as Memphis, I think Griffin and Jordan will have their way inside.
    Spurs over Portland in 7 - I'll root for Portland and that Lillard/Parker and Duncan/Aldridge battle will be great. New stars vs old stars. Portland has a chance to become the Spurs if they build around those 2 guys.

    Heat over Nets in 5 -You can't win with no bigs against the Heat. I don't care that they went 4-0 in the regular season.
    Pacers over Wiz in 5 - I know the Pacers have had their problems, but they match up really well with the Wizards. Wall will get his points, but Lance should take care of Beal, George won't have to work that hard against Ariza and West is a solid 15/8 guy who should stretch out Nene. Hibbert needs to regain form and shut down Gortat who has really blossomed in Washington.

    Garnett just played in the first scoreless postseason game of his career. Ouch.

    I'm suprised at how bad the Pacers look, interested to see if they rebound

    I don't think they will. Their morale is pretty close to being in the toilet and Hibbert is apparently soft. How do you get to be 7'2" and not be able to snag a single rebound? Forget the points, not a single rebound!? I think the Wizards close that one out in six.

    He's back, somewhat. Pacers have very good defense, but their offense is pretty stagnant, I don't think they can beat the Heat this year.

    The Clippers got jobbed last night. Some of the worst officiating throughout that entire game that I've ever seen, which is saying a lot considering it's the NBA. What a way to leave an ugly stain on a game that was otherwise a classic.

    That was awful, not too mention that Chris Paul didn't foul Westbrook on a 3-point play. OKC has gotten a lot of breaks. First the Randolph suspension and now the refs giving OKC the win last night. I don't like it.
