    NBA First round playoff Upsets/Sweeps. Post em here.

    In the West, I have the Grizz beating the Thunder.

    In the East, I have the Nets beating the Raptors.

    Sweeps?

    Rockets sweep the Blazers
    Pacers sweep the Hawks. I think the Pacers would sweep the Hawks even if they played all 7 games.

    Parlay bulls (vs wiz) and nets (vs raps) series prices. Veteran teams that play halfcourt game needed in playoffs. Know how to grind out wins that raps and wiz just dont have experience doing.

    I think there is much more value in the Nets. If John Wall plays well, they can beat the Bulls.

    I think raptors can beat nets.

    lowry can match williams (means a lot coming from an illinois fan). Derozan is a monster. I think raptors can win this series.

    No love for T dot. Well Brooklyn wanted them in the first round and got em so guess will see what happens. Hopefully Toronto has a little chip on their shoulder since Brooklyn tried their best to end up facing them. Honestly i think this and the LA vs GS matchup in the west will by far be the best first round series to watch.

    Im rooting for TO as thats my home team but the veteran factor is a big thing. For that reason ill probably leave this series alone, bet others and just enjoy watching it as a Fan.

    brooklyn wanting to fall to the 6th seed was one of the dumbest strategies of all time, basically saying they want to play toronto and miami instead of chicago and indiana

    Pacers ain't sweepin anybody. ATL is a terrible match up for the Pacers. Gonna take Indy 6 or 7 to beat them. Wouldn't be surprised if they get upset.

    You're in crack bro. Spurs vs mavericks will be the best series to watch. Instant classic. Classic matchup of years past between these two

    This. They might as well bench Hibbert the whole series. He can't guard anyone on the Hawks outside of Elton Brand and his offense isn't good enough to leave him out there.

    These teams are pretty evenly matched IMO. I'm not saying Portland wins this one, but the Rockets turn the ball over too much and will struggle to match up with Aldridge. I don't think Houston has it easy here. I expect a fun, lengthy series.

    Hard to say.

    The only team that's really a long shot upset I would give an outside shot to winning the series is Memphis. Wouldn't bet it though. I'd be shocked if the Mavs, Warriors, or Hawks pulled it off. And the Bobcats have ZERO chance.

    Of the shorter dogs, Portland should have a chance but I think they could end up falling short because of no HCA.

    People talking about the Nets being an upset need to look at the series price.

    Millsap might be huge for the Hawks vs Pacers ..... I can see that series going deep, not a huge fan of Indiana's bench, not saying that Atlanta has a bench at all.

    Who do they have to guard Blake? No-one in my mind. He gets 25 & 10 for the series easily.
