I have to wonder (strictly by the numbers mind you with each teams home game performance) why we should even bother with the playoffs. Just skip to the finals says I. It's going to be a Lakers/Cavs series most likely (barring injury anyway)

As someone who studied Cleveland sports history for my entire life though, I wouldn't bother hoping too hard for the Cavs to win said finals though. They are after all a Cleveland team

EDIT: Of course, if I am wrong, I will double celebrate. 1) because the Cleveland Sports Curse will finally be broken and 2) Shaq will drop another one of these http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TtbilFAG7ac

More good news for y'all celtics-haters, leon powe is out for the postseason with a torn ACL. I would be very, very surprised if the celts make it to the finals. I don't care who wins the finals as long as its not the lakers for several reasons, one of them being phil jackson inching closer to red auerbach's most title wins for a coach.

I'm not a hater - I wouldn't wish a torn ACL on anyone. I'd actually prefer the Celtics whole and healthy when they get trounced in the playoffs by any other team.

Geg, you have to be impressed with the C's tenacity. Even though they lost tonight, being 2 men down and putting up that kind of fight should be kind of inspiring.

Then again, it's the BULLS for Christ's sake!

Is anyone else watching the NBA playoffs?

Dwight Howard deserves the suspension - he clocks Dalembert in the left eye with a flagrant elbow. It looked like an opportunity presented itself, and in the spur of the moment he took it.

With two players down, and the Sixers at home, look for the Magic to close out the series tonight.

I just can't get into the NBA like I used to, although I did notice that the Celtics lost the Bulls in 3OT, so that was nice.

Yeah, they've already almost played 7 games, counting 7 5 minute OT's. One more OT, and this will be the first 8 game series in the recent history of the NBA.

I only have the chance to watch the celtics-bulls series. This is a classic, old school style of the nba playoff series with a lot of blood and hatred that the two teams have for each other. I read that there have been 106 lead changes in this series so far. I always thought that the bulls are a better team than their regular season record indicates. They're a young team with plenty of potentional and ugliness. Its also vinny del negro's first season as a head coach. If it wasn't for the celtics' deplorable defense in which the bulls have been exploiting, it wouldn't have been as exciting and intense.

BORING.

I don't see how it is possible for any team to be able to beat the cavs. They have everything that they need to win a championship. If they are to meet the celtics in the next round, I sure hope daniel stern and dan aykroyd pay lebron james a visit.

Forget I said it, especially since the Lakers aren't taking this seriously and the Rockets clearly are.

Yes, Cleveland fans must be mighty pleased right about now, with the last second heroics of Mr. James. Remind me, who was that other guy who used to wear #23? For the Bulls, right?

Lebron James deserves better than Cleveland is giving him

He has come into the NBA and by all rights should have been overwhelmed by the fame and money he has. Yet, he flawlessly maintains a clean-cut, team first image. How does the Cavs team management thank him? They fail to surround him with what he needs to win it all. They do it year after year. Now, Lebron will be a free agent and I want to see him become part of whatever team gives him the best chance at a title. He deserves it because nobody works harder than he does in the NBA (other than arguably Kobe) and nobody has been a better team mate than Lebron.

Oh well, there will always be other teams who have the equally strong desire to win. Michael jordan didn't win a championship until he was into his 7th season, time will come for lebron james if he would man it up and stick with the team like paul pierce had done for 10 years instead of running out of the building like a whiney little bitch.

If the magic have kncoked off the heavily favored cavs, they're most definitely capable of handling the lakers, after all the magic did beat them both times during the regular season. Although that was before jamaar nelson who made the biggest contribution in those two wins went down with the shoulder injury, his replacement rafer alston has certainly filled the void. I think it will be a good series.

I disagree. The thing about the Magic dispatching the Cavs so easily is they are custom built to be the antithesis to Cleveland, that is, larger three point shooting dynamos which Clevelands quick but still smaller team is unable to get in the faces of to block effectively. Why do you think Orlando shot so freaking many threes that series? Because it was working. LA will not have the defensive trouble that the Caves had against the Magic however because they have size in the arc that Cleveland lacks.

Lakers in 6, though I wish it otherwise.

Hey, now, don't be so sure. 'Meer will be playing a few minutes a game for Orlando - I'm sure that will be the difference in the series. :D

Magic in 7
