NBA Playoff Predictions

Round one in the East is easy—top seed wins everything. And actually the whole East is seeded correctly, Chicago and Miami will win in the second round, and then I think Chicago beats Miami to head to the finals.

In the West round one, I think Portland can upset the choketastic Mavericks and otherwise the top seeds get it, though Denver will give OKC a run for its money. Oklahoma City upsets San Antonio and LA beats Portland. LA beats OKC in the Conference Finals, then loses to Chicago in the end.
