1-2 so far. Not good.
Chicago over Atlanta is the only conference semifinal prediction I’ve gotten right in this year’s NBA Playoffs.
Picked Boston in six games. The Celtics lost in five to the Miami Heat.
Picked the Los Angeles Lakers in six games. The two-time defending NBA champions were swept by the Dallas Mavericks.
I could see the Miami one, coming because age was going to catch Boston sooner or later, but Dallas sweeping the Lakers? The only people who picked that besides Charles Barkley (He’s been on during these playoffs) are Dallas owner Mark Cuban and his closest family members.
Everyone else went with the Lakers.
Now I picked Oklahoma City to take down Memphis in six games, but we’re going to have a deciding Game 7 today to determine who will face the Mavericks in the Western Conference finals.
Can’t see Kevin Durant having two bad games in a row so I’m pretty confident in my Thunder pick, but Memphis won’t go down easily. Got too many tough guys. The Grizzlies are more than capable of winning today.
But they won’t.
