I don't see the Cavs beating the Spurs or Warriors. I don't know who will come out of the west, but they'll beat the Hawks, Bulls, or Cavs. The Cavs defense isn't good enough for either one of those west teams imo. Warriors could rotate Green, Iguodala, Barnes, or Thompson on LeBron and be ok. I'm gonna go with Golden State over Chicago in 5 though.

Are the Cavs done without Love? Will the Hawks even make the conference finals?

Bulls have let me down, the Cavs are still the heavy favorites to win the East. The Hawks will beat Brooklyn but I wouldn't be surprised if the Wizards beat them. They finally realize they should be playing Pierce at the 4.

I don't remember the exact stat I heard, but D Rose's numbers were night and day when on 3+ days of rest compared to 2 days or less. And now that this series keeps going, he'll have less time to rest before Cleveland. But if James Jones, Mike Miller and Marion are playing Games 1 and 2, it could be interesting. Otto Porter coming on really helps for Pierce at the 4. Then 48 combined minutes of Gortat and Nene at the 5 is pretty tough, instead of them playing together and jamming things up for Wall. And Porter can be glued to Korver if the Hawks want to try to use Schroder and Teague together down the stretch. I'm pretty locked onto the Warriors winning it all still. The Spurs are making me nervous. If Big Baby and Rivers give the Clippers anything at all, they are really good.

Also, Drew Gooden had 0 career 3s made in the playoffs until this year...and he now has 6 in the last 3 games.

The one this week that had Brian Windhorst. Either that or Bill Don't Lie. I like the Grantland NBA stuff. I think they were dead on about the Wizards.

Well, Dallas never found that extra gear.

They just couldn't guard Houston even at full strength. I thought Dallas played pretty well for most of the series.

Just imagine if they didn't make the Rondo trade. They may have been able to survive the Parsons injury. Barea just can't be a 38 minute guy. So Nelson, Crowder and Wright would've been huge. They still wouldn't defend, but at least it'd be a heck of an offense to deal with.
