2017 NBA Playoffs Pick 'Em Thread!

Post by Hedge on Sat Apr 15, 2017 6:20 pm

I haven't seen anybody else do this so...How about a friendly game of Pick 'Em?

It's a bit late but It's not too late so I'm gonna post all the games and just pick who you feel is going to win.  I'll be updating this regularly with the scores and whatnot and make slight improvements here and there.  If you have any suggestions, feel free to let me know!  I'm not the biggest NBA fan but I really love watching the playoffs.

So, without further ado, I'll post the games below, post who you think is going to win the series.

First Round - Eastern Conference

(1)Boston Celtics Vs (8)Chicago Bulls -------- 4-2 Boston WINS
(2)Cleveland Cavaliers Vs (7) Indiana Pacers ------ 4-0 Cleveland WINS
(3)Toronto Raptors Vs (6) Milwaukee Bucks ------- 4-2 Toronto WINS
(4) Washington Wizards Vs (5) Atlanta Hawks -------- 4-2 Washington WINS

First Round - Western Conference

(1)Golden State Warriors Vs (8)Portland Trailblazers ------- 4-0 Golden State WINS
(2)San Antonio Spurs Vs (7)Memphis Grizzlies ------- 4-2 San Antonio WINS
(3)Houston Rockets Vs (6)Oklahoma City Thunder ------ 4-1 Houston WINS
(4)Los Angeles Clippers Vs (5)Utah Jazz ---------- 3-4 Utah WINS

I like your picks for round 1 the playoffs this year has some dopeee match ups the west is always a battle ground but this year I get the feeling the east is going to be AMAZING some real evenly matched teams there
WEST:
Golden State 4-0
San Antonio(my spurs<3) 4-1
OKC in in 5 ( The series to watch in the west two fast paced offences)
Clippers(Make or break year very important) 5 or 6, probably going to be a gritty series the defense on the Jazz is great and some players on the Jazz are seriously underrated

EAST:
Celtics in 5 its going to be great seeing Rondo play against Boston at home hopefully we see him go off against the Celtics like he use to in this series.
Cleveland 4 always great seeing Lebron vs Pg13 but the star power in CLE is to great. Some great players on Indi to but their bigs aren't as good.
Milwaukee in 6, never really trusted the raptors great team but I don't see them posing a threat for the players on Mil (Ginnais)
Wizards in 5 ( Going to be a great series) always been a fan of the hawks since they got their head coach who is a ex spur btw, but the back court on the Wizards is way to good.

On another note the history between the the Spurs and Grizzles since the playoffs at the beginning of the decade I guess you could say it's a rivalry I expect us to play them in the playoffs every year now lol

I don't really watch all the teams during the season but I like Bulls and Spurs, but since Bulls are not likely to go through I'll root for Spurs Razz

Unsurprisingly, the Rockets handles the Westbrooks...I mean the Thunder.

One of my favorite parts about the NBA playoffs is that for the first round, there's like multiple games every day. It's pretty great.

Even though there's a fair couple 2-0 series atm, it's overall much better matchups than last year. Last year almost every series was a blowout one way or the other.


This year, the only series' that have been blowouts have been the spurs - grizz and the warriors - blazers. The rest have been pretty close here and there.

On Deck tonight: We got the cavs trying to go 3-0, the raptors or bucks trying to take a 2-1 control and the spurs trying to keep a tight grip on the grizzlies.

I feel bad for the grizz but the playoffs are not a time to discover which kind of team you are. They are a very defensive team but they're trying to find offensive shooting and it's not working.

I wouldn't worry too much. Bulls losing Rondo is huge.

Tonight is the deciding game in the Bulls/Celtics series. If the Bulls wins, they will win this series. If the Celtics win, they will win the series. Calling it now.

I wonder if the Blazers will be able to win at least one? Lol.

I honestly thought the Pacers would take a game. Oh well. Cleveland sweeps again. LeBron is still THE KING

BTW, I'm not a Cleveland fan, I hate Ohio, but I am a LeBron fan.

It's crazy to think that LeBron can dominate for so long so easily. I am by no means a Cavs fan but you gotta respect the man.

The last time Lebron lost a 1st round playoff game was 2012 when Harden and Durant were both on OKC...I guess the fact Indiana took them to 7 twice got the better of my judgement there. The Spurs Grizzle series so far is the best thing since sliced bread so far ths year.
