2013 playoff predictions

Posted by shawn cassidy on April 19, 2013 at 12:15 AM




I'm going to take a stab at predicting the 2013 NBA playoffs. Before the season started I picked the Celtics vs Clippers in the NBA finals. For awhile the Clippers made me look good. I picked them because of their depth, and I like what Billups brings, but he hasn't been a factor this year because of injuries. With Rondo out the Celtics have a very small shot.




Eastern Conference Playoffs


1st Round                                                             2nd Round                                                               ECF

1 Miami vs 8 Bucks   (Heat Win series 4-0)            1 Miami vs 5 Bulls  (Heat Win series 4-1)          1 Miami vs 7 Celtics

4 Nets   vs 5  Bulls   ( Bulls Win series 4-2)                                                                                    (Miami Wins Series 4-2)

2 Knicks vs 7 Celtics ( Celtics win series 4-2)        3 Pacers vs 7 Celtics (Celtics Win series 4-3)

3 Pacers vs 6 Hawks  (Pacers win series 4-1)



Western Conference Playoffs


1st Round                                                                                 2nd Round                                                                                                                              

1 Thunder vs 8 Rockets    (Thunder Win series 4-1)      1 Thunder vs 4 Clippers  (OKC Win series 4-1)      

4 Clippers vs 5 Memphis   (Clippers Win series 4-3)                                                                                                         

2 Spurs vs 7 Lakers        ( Lakers Win series 4-2)          3 Nuggets vs 7 Lakers (Nuggets win series 4-3)

3 Nuggets vs 6 Warriors   ( Nuggets Win series 4-3)



NBA Finals


1 Miami vs 1 Thunder ( Thunder Win series 4-2)


WCF

1 Thunder vs 3 Nuggets   (Thunder Win series 4-2)



So I pick the two top teams in each conference. My upsets are the Celtics in the first two rounds, and the Lakers in the first round. I think the Lakers are riding some emotions right now, and the Spurs are a little banged up. I think the Lakers will have a similar reaction like the Celtics had when they lost Rondo. As for the Celtics I'll have more of why I pick them in the series preview.
