Default Raps Forum Eastern Conference Playoff Predictions

Even though our team didn't make it (again) I feel there's a lot to watch for this post-season. And the playoff matchups are all set in the East.

1 Chicago
vs.
8 Indiana

2 Miami
vs.
7 Philly

3 Boston
vs.
6 New York

4 Orlando
vs
5 Miami



My predictions
------------------------------------------------------------------------
1st round

1 Chicago
vs.
8 Indiana

2 Miami
vs.
7 Philly

3 Boston
vs.
6 New York

4 Orlando
vs
5 Atlanta

2nd round

2 Miami
vs
3 Boston

1 Chicago
vs
4 Orlando

3rd round

3 Boston
vs
1 Chicago


Don't ask me why. Logically based on how each team has been playing down the stretch, I should have either Miami or Chicago taking down Boston and it is ridiculously against the odds for them to take out both en route to the finals, but somehow I just feel like I can't count them out just yet.

Nothing would personally make me happier than to see Chicago in the finals and not Miami. It blows my friggin mind to imagine them with Lebron in addition to what they have. Stupid, stupid move on his part. He could have conquered MJ's legacy in his backyard, and garnered nothing but praise for it. I'm hoping Rose does it in his place.

Orlando vs Miami in the Conf. Finals. Miami wins then loses in the finals to the Lakers. I don't think there will be any huge surprises.

I think that LA could be upset by OKC. They already came close last year.

For all the hate they receive, I think the Heat will come out of the east. Even though their depth sucks, lebron+wade with bosh/haslem/chalmers helping them will be too much for the bulls (Heat-Bulls ECF). Just due to the fact that the heat have 2 guys that can take over the game completely. Also I have yet to see Wade "choke" in a series.

1st Round

1 Chicago
vs.
8 Indiana

2 Miami
vs.
7 Philly

3 Boston
vs.
6 New York

4 Orlando
vs
5 Atlanta

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2nd Round

1. Chicago
vs.
4. Orlando

2. Miami
vs.
3. Boston

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ECF

1. Chicago
2. Miami

I just can't see Miami losing with both Wade and Lebron who can single handedly win games. Adding Bosh/Haslem/Miller just makes it even more likely.

Wouldn't be upset to see Chicago make the finals though.

I don't know about individual matchups but I still expect Miami to win the lot.

My head tells me Miami comes out of the east, but my gut tells me Boston.

Should be interesting regardless.

Even though my pick of Orlando is looking iffy right now, I still think they can pull through. The real playoffs start in the 2nd round.
