NBA Playoff Series Predictions – Evaluation

We will quickly sum up the predictions here, but if you feel like reading the whole story, click here.

EASTERN CONFERENCE

Series: Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Detroit Pistons

Prediction: Cavaliers in 6

The Cavaliers didn’t need 6 games, 4 were enough to finish off the artists formerly known as the Detroit Pistons. It wasn’t hard to pick the winner of this 1st round series, too bad we didn’t want to accept the fact that a sweep was probable.

Series: Boston Celtics vs. Chicago Bulls

Prediction: Celtics in 6

Well, game 7 is upon us, but we were so close that get this one right. Damn you, Paul Pierce and your missed free throw! Just kidding, this was the best thing that could have happened to us. Can we extend this series to best of 15 or something?

blitz

Series: Orlando Magic vs. Philadelphia 76ers

Prediction: Magic in 5

Close enough. 5 or 6, c’mon, that’s pretty much the same. 😀

blitz

Series: Atlanta Hawks vs. Miami Heat

Prediction: Heat in 7

…and we stand by this. You really believe anyone not named LeBron or Kobe has a chance against Wade in a game 7? Thought so…

blitz

WESTERN CONFERENCE

Series: Los Angeles Lakers vs. Utah Jazz

Prediction: Lakers in 4

Close enough.

blitz

Series: Denver Nuggets vs. New Orleans Hornets

Prediction: Nuggets in 6

I expected Chris Paul to at least try to win another game, but well…it took  the Nuggets only 5 games to finish the Hornets off. Can’t wait for the 2nd series against…

blitz

Series: San Antonio Spurs vs. Dallas Mavericks

Prediction: Spurs in 7

…the Dallas Mavericks. I really thought the Spurs had one more run in them, but the Mavs proved me wrong in 5 games. That hurts.

blitz

Series: Houston Rockets vs. Portland Blazers

Prediction: Blazers in 7

Yeah…I know.

So, we got 6/8 series right. Pretty bad if you ask me, but we’ll try to redeem ourselves in the 2nd round.
