The second round is almost here! Philly's gone fishing after getting blasted last night. I guess Detroit can turn it on whenever they want to against sub-par teams. I have to give props to Philly though for hanging in there for so long. Nobody gave them a chance (rightfully so) but they hung in there and woke up Detroit from their first round playoff slumber. Detroit just dominated them in the final 2 games though. Maybe Philly was the spark to get Detroit back into title contention status. Those games against Superman aka Dwight Howard and Orlando will be a lot of fun to watch.
Make the jump for tonight's matchups.
G6: (4) Cleveland Cavaliers @ (5) Washington Wizards (Cavs lead 3-2)
Let's try this one more time. I just wished the games didn't start so early because then maybe I could watch. Cleveland takes it tonight.
G6: (1) Boston Celtics @ (8) Atlanta Hawks (Celtics lead 3-2)
Is this the end for the Cinderella Hawks? Do their bandwagon fans know that this is a best of 7 series? I'm picking the Celtics, but Joe Johnson and Josh Smith have proved to everyone that they're the real deal.
G6: (5) Houston Rockets @ (4) Utah Jazz (Jazz lead 3-2)
I didn't think this series would last more than 4 games, but if the Rockets can pull off a miracle tonight, we go to an "anything can happen" game 7. This is the game I'm most interested in watching. I just want to see TMac do well. Unfortunately, I think Utah closes it out tonight. Booo.
