OPEN THREAD: Day 11 of the 2k8 NBA Playoffs

THE PLAYOFFS WAIT FOR NO MAN!!

While I’m stuck here at work, the quest for Hoops Eliteness continues with 4 games tonight. And in 3 out of 4 cases, we may very well see the end of some first round action!

Almost back to Geico commercials for a few months!


So far, the biggest shocker for me is the fact that Philly is actually hanging with the Detroit. While I love a good underdog story (as any Warriors fan should), it’s tough to imagine that this anomaly isn’t going to right itself with tonight’s action.

I’ve got my picks in… Do you?!

 

 G5: (7) Dallas Mavericks @ (2) New Orleans Hornets (New Orleans lead 3-1)

Shut em down New Orleans. Give the Mavs a nice long offseason... Again.

 

 G5: (6) Phoenix Suns @ (3) San Antonio Spurs (Spurs lead 3-1) 

Not tonight. Phoenix will come with a 2nd half push that forces the Snores to play a Game 6.

 

 G5: (4) Utah Jazz @ (5) Houston Rockets (Jazz lead 3-1) 

Ugh. I hate to say it but I’m thinkin’ this one ends tonight.

 

 G5: (7) Philadelphia 76ers @ (2) Detroit Pistons (Series tied 2-2) 

Wow seriously?! Props to Philly but Detroit is coming with a reality check tonight.
