I think the top seeds

I think the top seeds will probably will every matchup, the only exception might be the raptors. They are too inexperienced. Chicago and Houston might have a hard time also.

Indiana in 6
Chicago in 6
Brooklyn in 6
Miami in 4

San Antonio in 5

Houston in 7

Clippers in 5

I'm hoping my Blazers can

I'm hoping my Blazers can pull off a first round series win! It's been way too long. If they are to win, it'll most likely be in 7. Houston's been a very tough matchup for them this season.

I knew the Raptors were going

I knew the Raptors were going to get underrated on here. They may be unexperienced but they have some of the greatest teamwork and chemistry I have seen all year. Not to mention very athletic and can run the old men on the Nets out of the gym, and are getting very good coaching from Casey. Kidd hasn't coached a playoff game before. I can also say with confidence that they will have the best 2 players on the floor in Kyle Lowry and Demar Derozan. Raptors in 6.

Not sure...

I did not follow the Raptors a ton this year - probably like most people south of Quebec - so I'm not sure what to expect from that series. But given their struggles against the Nets this year (and tough series against Pierce/Garnett in the past) I bet the Heat are pulling for the Raptors. Probably quite a surprise to them that Washington passed the Nets at the end. The Heat appeared to "give away" the number one seed and I assumed the reasons were they figured they could win in Indiana if they needed to but also they preferred the Raptors/Wiz winner to a potential series against the Bulls or Nets. Oops...

@halfdecayed Yea, because the

@halfdecayed

Yea, because the Heat look great going into the playoffs. D. Wade doesn't look healthy and the Heat are getting less and less from their role players. Throw in the fact it's just hard to get to the NBA Finals four times in a row.

The Pacers haven't looked great either, but I think they have more momentum going into the playoffs. Quietly, their role players have played well and getting CJ Watson back is huge (see game vs OKC). IF Roy Hibbert can even get back to being 75% of the player he was the first half of the season, I don't see why they can't beat the Heat... Especially having homecourt advantage, where they haven't loss to the Heat (or Bulls) this season.
