Deadlines are a bitch. I actually had something to say about each of these series as the NBA has been my favorite professional sports league since I was 8 or 9. But my daughter’s first birthday party is today and I have family coming in town and I’m trying to get my verses remembered for MeuwlFest tonight… so you just get picks for now. I’m sorry! I’ll try to do better next time.
#1 Atlanta Hawks v. #8 Brooklyn Nets – Hawks in 4.
#2 Cleveland Cavaliers v. #7 Boston Celtics – Cavs in 5.
#3 Chicago Bulls v. #6 Milwaukee Bucks – Bulls in 7 (after Rose gets hurt again and can’t play the rest of the playoffs. And yes, I’m a Bulls fan).
#4 Toronto Raptors v. #5 Washington Wizards – Raptors in 7.
#1 Golden State Warriors. v. #8 New Orleans Pelicans – Warriors in 6.
#2 Houston Rockets v. #7 Dallas Mavericks – Rockets in 5.
#3 Los Angeles Clippers v. #6 San Antonio Spurs – Spurs in 4.
#4 Portland Trail Blazers v. #5 Memphis Grizzlies – Grizzlies in 5.
