NBA Playoffs – Heat vs Bulls Semifinals Series Predictions

Posted on 6 May, 2013, by in NBA

Is there a chance for the Chicago Bulls, with so many injured players and coming off an exhausting first round series to pull off the upset? The fact that the Miami Heat struggled against them through the regular season might prove to be the only thing that keeps them going, but eventually, it’s going to be very hard even imagining them making it through a best-of-seven series against LeBron James and a very well rested bunch of NBA champions.

In what was probably the ugliest series so far in the 2013 NBA Playoffs, the New York Knicks came out as winners thanks to Tyson Chandler in the paint, and Carmelo Anthony not ruining things too much for his teams. Meanwhile, the Indiana Pacers have shown that they might finally be over their road problems, and have the ability to play a little bit more “easy on the eyes” than they have for most of the season.

NBA Playoffs – Spurs vs Lakers Series Predictions

Posted on 19 Apr, 2013, by in NBA

It’s rare to find the Los Angeles Lakers in a situation where they have nothing to lose. Making the playoffs seems like a huge victory on itself considering their situation not too long ago, and now especially with Kobe Bryant not available to play. The San Antonio Spurs, except for the last game of the season, have looked better all season, and enter with the home court advantage and being huge favorites to proceed. More
