OK , let’s break down the first round tentatively matchups as of today…..
1. CHICAGO VS. 8. PHILADELPHIA
The Bulls seem to be peaking at the right time with Derek Rose not 100%. The bulls have the inside present of Jokim Noah, Carlos Boozer and Taj Gibson to help offset Rose’s absence. CJ Watson and John Lucas have provided scoring punch from the perimeter to help the Bulls as well while Loul Deng continues to slash and get to the rack at will………realsportsrealtalk prediction….Bulls in 6…
2. MIAMI VS. NEW YORK
Here is an intrugoing matchup here with the Heat battling the hot Knicks of late. Lebron vs. Carmelo….great for T.V. and great for the NBA…..The Heat are a seasoned team while the Knicks have cahnged coaches and styles to offset their talent…….realsportsrealtalk prediction….Heat in 7….
3. INDIANA VS. ORLANDO
This series could be a very long and hard fought series. Both teams play the same style however, the Magic will be without Dewight Howard. To make matters worse , the Magic seem to struggle on the road and with Stan Van Gundy getting hit with the scape goat tag for the Dewight Howard debacle, it looks tough for the Magic……….realsportsrealtalk prediction…..Pacers in 6….
4. BOSTON VS. 5 ATLANTA
Here is another tough series to watch for. An heavely expereinced team in the BOSTON CELTICS take on the young and talented Hawks.

Inconcluding, the East will be a tough hard nose battle from beggining to end. Many questions will be answered during the first round of the playoffs…..stay tuned……..realsportsrealtalk…..
