This is what I wanted to warn Orlando about when they started the series. Don’t go seven game or you’re done. I believe that Orlando is the better team but game 7 is about playoff experience. I never imagined that the Boston Celtics team would win three games against Orlando without KG but they have. I believe Boston is going to shock Orlando and go to the Eastern Conference Finals. At least next year, Orlando will have a new coach.
Now to Game 7 of the LA Lakers and Houston Rockets series. I have no clue what is wrong with the LA Lakers. Once Yao Ming went down I thought the series was over. The Rockets won the next game, then Lakers blows out Houston, and then Houston beats LA again. Well, at least game 7 is in LA and this means the Lakers are gonna slaughter the Rockets in game 7. This game won’t even be close. I have no doubt the Lakers will win this game and advance to the Western Conference Finals. Just remember it’s Kobe time.
I am not too excited this year about basketball yet. The first round was alright. The only series that brought any excitement was the Celtics/Bulls series. I wished the Bulls had won. Let’s move to the second round action.
Yesterday we saw game one of the Denver/Dallas series. I really enjoyed watching Denver beating Dallas. Dallas is no longer the team they use to be. The window has closed for Dallas. Denver is red hot and will advance to the Western Conference Finals.
The Lakers/ Houston series will be another fun series. The Lakers will win this series but I think it will take 5 games. Houston is really no match for the Lakers but I hope Bynam will step it up this series. They will need him in this series. Lakers will make it easily to the next round.
The Cavs/Hawks series I am looking forward to. I think the Cavs should breeze through this series but Atlanta is a team that will compete with the Cavs. I will say that the Cavs will win the series in 6 games. Watch out for Atlanta to make some waves but Lebron and the Cavs will overcome.
The Orlando/Celtics series is another series that I am hoping for total domination by one team, The Orlando Magic. After the first round, I think that Orlando will struggle against the Celtics. Orlando must play hard early to finish the series quick. Don’t let Boston hang around. I say this series will be close but Orlando will win it in 6 games. If it goes to seventh game, then Boston will win it. Orlando do whatever you have to not to take it to a seventh game.
