To show he's an idiot and didn't even watch the game. Sorry if I'm wrong on this.

I'm going to say Cleveland is going to win this in 5, 6 at the most. Don't see the Hawks pushing it to 7 imo.

Keys to Hawks winning:

1. Limit everyone but LeBron. LJ is going to get his points, but if the Hawks can get bad games out of Ilgauskas, Wallace, Wally World and more, they can win.
2. Keep turnovers to a minimum.
3. Good ball movement in the halfcourt.
4. Get good rebounding from Zaza, Horford, Smith.

If we can do this in four games, we can win this series.

Cleveland will win any game where two other guys besides James have good nights.

Atlanta got crushed in their games in Miami. No reason to think that the result will be any different in a much tougher environment.

ATL may win a home game, as I could see them feeding off the energy of the crowd. However, the Cavs are the better, more experienced team. The Cavs have big time goals. I think the Hawks are just happy to be in this position.

currently laughing @ the people who think the hawks could actually win

The Hawks look really good on paper. They have a lot of athleticism and great players

Bibby - Johnson - Smith - Horford - Evans / Murray / Pachulia

But they have no offensivive scheme. It's 5 guys playing 1on1 essentially. Against the best defense in the NBA this is a no-no.

If the Hawks build an offensive scheme and show me something different other than how they beat the Heat, then I might consider them taking more than a game.

Cavs in 5

It's gonna be Cavs in 4 or 5, the poster above me is right, they're just not together enough as a team to give 'em any trouble.

Don't be too arrogant, Cavalier fans. It wasn't but a couple of years ago when Detroit fans scoffed at the idea that we could give them a decent series.

The Hawks have weapons.

Default How will Cleveland come out in game 1?

Lakers came out flat and very rusty after having a long lay-off do you see the same happening to the Cavs? with Lebron getting his MVP trophy I don't see them lacking focus.

I think they will come out focused, but miss a few easy shots the first quarter before they get their rhythm back. The Lakers are more talented, but they have more mercurial players, and less chemistry than the Cavs, so were more affected by the layoff (and likely taking the Rockets lightly due to the 4-0 season sweep of them).

I wouldn't be surprised if the Cavs go down a bit early on, maybe even as much as 10 points, but they'll be back to even or up a few by halftime, and come the second half they'll open that lead to double figures.
