The 2008 NBA Playoffs

The regular season is over and the real test has just begun. The 2007-2008 NBA Regular Season is full of twists, turns, ironies and downfalls. The fall of traditional powers like Dallas Mavericks paves way to the rise of new ones like the New Orleans. Just like I did last year, I am presenting the protagonists for the first round NBA playoffs and projected outcomes. Detroit Piston will win the ring this time around.

Eastern Conference:

1. Boston Celtics (1) vs Atlanta Hawks (8). Boston 4-0

2. Detroit Pistons (2) vs Philadelphia Sixers (7). Detroit 4-1

3. Orlando Magic (3) vs Toronto Raptors (6). Orlando 4-1

4. Cleveland Cavaliers (4) vs Washington Wizards (5). Washington 4-3

Western Conference:

1. Los Angeles Lakers (1) vs Denver Nuggets (8). Lakers 4-2

2. New Orleans Hornets (2) vs Dallas Mavericks (3). New Orleans 4-3

3. San Antonio Spurs (3) vs Phoenix Suns (6). San Antonio 4-3

4. Utah Jazz (4) vs Houston Rockets. Utah 4-2
