Raps looks like they will win against the Hornets, leading big in the 4th. Atlanta and Bulls are too close to call, too early.

Bulls are close , with Hawks leading 68-65 towards the end of the third.

Spurs catching up the Pelicans , only down 8 at the beginning of the fourth.

OKC will win, while watching scoreboard for the next 30 minutes.

Bulls will win and get the Bucks.

Spurs are teasing the OKC so bad it is not fair. But looks like Pelicans will win that one. Yep...OKC, with the worst luck of any team probably, go home.

I was wrong about the Spurs winning last night. Big time win for New Orleans to beat the hottest team in the league to get in the playoffs. They won't win more than 1 game vs. GS but it is still a step in the right direction and it will be good to see AD in the playoffs.

For the Spurs, their road just got a lot tougher. Huge loss for them last night but I still think they'll get by the Clips. And if they do I think they definitely take out Houston and make the WCF against Golden State.

So, playoffs start tomorrow.

Anyone see a surprise in the first round?

As far as seedings go, in the East, the only lower seed I can see prevailing is Washington against the Raps and I seriously hope that does not happen.

In the West, there are two lower seeds that I think will prevail. Spurs against Clippers, and Memphis against Portland.

Pretty much how I see it too, though it wouldn't shock me if Dallas gives Houston serious problems and possibly wins that series. No surprised out East as Wiz-Raps is close to a tossup with slight edge to Toronto for HCA.

Go rewatch the Kentucky vs Wisconsin game. Caplapri and the refs screwed that game up bigtime..I have always felt that coach Cap wasn't in the class with Coach K and Izzo,, he is just a good recruiter like Bill Self

That's right, AP. Calipari is frankly a coward in the NCAA Tournament. He holds his players back and doesn't let them play freely. Calipari - from a strategic perspective - would do best coaching an Ivy League school in the NCAA Tournament. That is the pace he wants his teams to play at, and that's why he just barely beat Cornell and Princeton when UK played them in the NCAA Tournament.

I haven't been here for a while, I'm just wondering if people are still hanging on to the stupid notion of OKC being Westbrook's team. There's only one real MVP.
