2007 NBA Playoffs

    Looking at the playoff picture right now the #1 seed in the East is going to have a big advantage over the rest of the conference if 3-8 doesn't change. A first round match up with the Pacers, a second round match up against the Bulls or Raptors, and then they get to face whoever makes it out of the Heat, Wizards, and Cavs/Pistons. I think it would be a big bonus for the Cavs if they can beat out the Pistons for the 1 seed so that they only have to play one true contender for the Finals. I can't wait until Wednesday to see how the new look Cavs do against the Mavs.

    I was talking about this with someone the other day.

    The one seed in the East should probably make the East finals without difficulty.

    You really want to avoid being in the 2-3 match-up if you're Detroit and Cleveland.

    1. x-Detroit --
    2. x-Cleveland 3.0
    3. * Toronto 6.0
    4. * Miami 7.0
    5. x-Chicago 3.5
    6. Washington 7.5
    7. Orlando 12.5
    8. New Jersey 13.0

    I' love the current playoff picture. I just realized that I am a big Raptors fan for the rest of the season. If the Cavs can hold on to the 2 seed and the Raptors can hold on to the 3 seed the Pistons and Heat will play in the second round. That would be great for the Cavs and make the 2 seed the place to be. This also would make dropping to the 5 murder. Heat in the first, Pistons in the second and a final against Chicago or Washington.

    You must have loved the Ruffin ball-toss to Mo Peterson last night. :tongue2:

    As either a Bulls or a Cavs fan fan, it's worth noting that the '5' seed will have home court in the first round, as long as they have a better record than the '4th' seeded conference champ.
     
  5. You have to love our chances if the playoffs were to start today and those were the seedings...We need to do our best to win today and keep that 2 spot...

    Also Go Toronto, but they did lose their one rookie for the season I believe...

    I do believe that if I saw correctly that Toronto and Miami will only be playing for the 3rd time this season this week and the winner would then hold the tiebreaker, so we really need Toronto to win that game...

    SparkyOSU ...????

    WTF????

    The playoff schedule has been posted.

    Why the fuck are we going to take 3 weeks to get through the first round again? If one of the series' goes 7 games, We will not start the second round until 8-9 MAY!!!!!!

    Clevelands game 7 is on May 6th!!!!

    3 weeks for a series is BS. I thought this was publicly scrutinized last year?

    If this is what happens for now on in the multigame format, then they need to go back to a 5 gamer or the 2-3-2 format.
     

  7. Totally agree, I can't stand how long the playoffs last...

    This is why I paid less attention to the regular season this year. I got burnt out on the NBA by the end of the playoffs last year.

    Now I'm pumped and ready to see some exciting matchups, especially out West.

    On the bright side the Cavs are lacking in exciting matchups until the third round.

    Speaking of which, will either Arenas or Butler be playing for the Wiz in the first round?

    Wizards are without Arenas AND Butler. Their starting line up is Antonio Daniels, Deshawn Stevenson, Jarvis Hayes, Antawn Jamison, and Etan Thomas. I'm thinking we should just abuse them inside and wrap this up in 4. Gooden and Varejao should have a big series. I expect Lebron to be off the charts.

    They are doomed. I was in a fantasy NBA league this year where you built your roster from two teams you selected. Surprisingly I was one of the last to join but the Suns and Wizards were available. I ran over the rest of the league but watching Washington over the last few weeks it goes without saying they don't stand a chance.

    Flocka Where you going? NOWHERE!

    I am very surprised to see Golden State is up by 5 in the 4th quarter.
