DUKE HOGWILD'S FULL PLAYOFF PREDICTION
ROUND 1 is the most important round for my predictions. rockets, phoenix, detroit, & cleveland are easy picks. the heat & nets are arguable picks... it's the nuggets & the warriors that cause the nay sayers to doubt me.
you may think it has nothing to do with denver & golden state and everything to do with the fact that i'm anti spur & maverick..well you're partly correct, but i would never make a crazy prediction without a little validity.
golden state finally has the team they've been trying to get on the floor all year. they're 9-1 heading into the playoffs with this line up. they've been lights out.
their confidence started with a victory that ended the mavericks 17 game winning streak. baron davis, jason richardson, monta ellis, stephen jackson, & al harrington make up the most unique starting line up in the league. they all hit from beyond the arc, and can all guard dirky boy..plus monta speaks german shizer talk. they're inspired, in shape, and have NOTHING to lose..not to mention they're coached by the one guy that knows the mavs secrets..
denver isn't as deep as the spurs, but the A.I. factor negates the spurs depth. he fears nothing, has the experience, and is as clutch as they come..nene & camby are healthy, which gives the nuggets two options to throw at duncan. melo will balance out manu & bowen's involvement, and j.r. smith's three's will be the cherry in game 6.
rockets over golden state in 6
suns over nuggets in 6
heat over pistons in 7
cavs over nets in 6
the only series i'm iffy about is the heat pistons matchup. i give it to miami only for what dwyane wade did last year. he deserves that much from me.
rockets over suns in 6
heat over cavs in 6
at this point in the playoffs t-mac & yao will be within the legendary duo zone. phoenix will lose yet again in the conference finals..
luther head will become the new alltime 3 point makes leader in a playoff series.
the flash vs king james. this is what kids across the world have been waiting for there whole lives. this will be one of the greatest duals in nba history, but miami's experience will out weigh lebron's 34.3 pts, 8.7 ass, & 9.2 rebs.
rockets over heat in 6
i love d.wade, but thou shall not betray the mac. yao puts the nail in shaq's coffin & people across the world will be loving head. -- D.H.
