Default How far should the Cavs go in the playoffs?

What's a realistic expectation?

I'm not sure how I feel about them if they go against the Celtics, Pistons or Magic.

Everyone else they should be able to handle, but what about those three teams?

I'm going to ignore the fact that you're basically trolling for more hits and you couldn't be bothered to post in this forum regularly if you really gave a crap about the Cavs.

Magic are overrated. Pistons we can handle. Boston I'm 50/50 on.

The thing about the Cavs, is they get up for big games and they have Lebron. Those two key factors make them very unpredictable come playoff time.

Unfortunately, it's looking like we're going to face the Wizards in the first round (again) so I don't expect a lot of excitement there. I expect the Cavs will beat them, and things will get interesting from there.

I could see us getting out'ed in the 2nd round, but I could also see us going back to the ECF. I'm not confident in our ability to get to the Finals.

We need the off season to get these guys healthy and used to playing with each other. A better coach wouldn't hurt.

To be honest a healthy Wizards team could cause the Cavs some serious problems the way they are playing of late, though I would still consider the Cavs favorites. The Sixers or Raptors would be relatively easy win in my opinion, if they should happen to get the 5th seed.

As for the second round I'm not liking the Cavs chances much, the Celtics are simply a better team, and would be big favorites in such a matchup. Had we met the Magic or Pistons instead it would be a different story, but unfortunately that's not the case.

So all in all I'm thinking Cavs chances break down something like :

1st round exit: 25%
2nd round exit: 65%
3rd round exit: 7%
Finals loss: 2%
Finals win: 1%
