Swish's First Round Winners, NBA Playoffs 2012

Swish’s Notes: 
“No, its not a glitch.. I have the Mavericks taking out the Oklahoma City Thunder in 7. The Mavericks are underrated this year, and although OKC is my second favorite to win it all, I can’t stand ideally by.. wait, I WILL NOT stand ideally by and not give the defending Champs a shot out of the first round!”

The 2nd Round of the NBA Playoffs officially came to an end earlier today when the Oklahoma City Thunder defeated the Memphis Grizzlies in a hard-fought 7-game series. How good were my predictions, pretty darn good.. (2nd Round Predictions).

You’ve got to congratulate the Grizzlies on a fantastic year, Conley and Gasol’s development along with Z-Bo’s dominance have the future looking bright as ever and that’s exciting!

The semi-finals also begin today with the Chicago bulls hosting the surging Miami Heat.

Here are my predictions! (Click Image to Full Screen)

Swish's NBA Playoff Predictions of the Semi-Finals

Upsets, Getting Real..

Dallas Mavericks vs Oklahoma City ThunderThunder are just quicker and more athletic and if I’ve learnt anything about the Mavericks over the last 5 years. . . they can’t quite keep up with athletic teams.. I expect Dirk Nowitzki to be out-of-phase while facing a variety of long athletic Ibaka (Shot-blaka) arms and who in the world is going to stop Russell Westbrook from penetrating the Maverick Defense.. However, Mavs do own home-court advantage and have much more experience than OKC.. It’ll be interesting, slow vs fast, poised vs reckless, old vs young..

Chicago Bulls vs Miami Heat – This series is going to be WILD! The Heat are scorching hot but Chicago swept the season series 3-0.. But, if LeBron James and Dwyane Wade keep up their recent assault, I just can’t see Derrick Rose and co. stopping them.. I should also note that I am really looking forward to watching poor old Mike Bibby break an ankle. . Series is gonna be defensively oriented, expect low scoring games but hard fought and exciting!

Starts TONIGHT!

Happy Playoff-ing = Company + Drinks + HD TV!
