Rockets vs Mavericks

Battle in Texas rages on…

This to me has to one of the best series of the first round, both of these teams really sis what they had to too acquire the type of players they needed around free agency and the trade deadline, both have made an interesting impact on the season and I don’t think we can count either of them out until the final buzzer goes off. The Rockets are looking at the post season as a new start almost to their season now that they have Dwight Howard back on the floor while the Mavericks are looking to get the most out of Rajon Rondo that they can.

Atlanta Hawks vs The Nets

Can Brooklyn keep their season alive?

Not only have the Atlanta Hawks been almost unstoppable during the regular season but it seems like they have brought the same fight into the post season, ganging up on Brooklyn at every turn, beating them to the loose balls, controlling the back boards and managing the pace of the game The Nets are doing everything right as far as their play is going, it’s just that they cannot seem to get to the Hawks fast enough, their offense is stopped by a massive defensive wall that Atlanta pulls up, even on fast breaks most of the time it seems they are able to get back in time.

Spurs vs Clippers

Can the young Clippers get this huge series win?

Both of these teams had great ends to their regular season but the Spurs looked a little off beat in the first game of this series, now that this is game four, I expect to see the dame tenacity from them as I did in game two. The Clippers have to convert at the line, they cannot expect top win this series by missing free shots at the basket from the charity line. The Clippers have one of the best starting five’s in the League but the problem is whenever they are resting their bench gives all the points back and then some.

The Toronto Raptors and the Washington Wizards

The Raptors made an impressive stand this season

This series between the Toronto Raptors and the Washington Wizards seems very familiar, that’s right, the Raptors have always struggled in the postseason, losing every time they have made it there. They are better than Washington, they have younger guys, just has talented and I am even willing to say they could want it more than the Wizards but the score just doesn’t reflect that at all… No one is saying that the Wizards area bust or don’t deserve to be where they are but looking back at the regular season Toronto out played them and just is not showing it when it really counts.

Boston Celtics and the Cleveland Cavaliers

Will the Celtics have enough?

This is game 4 between the Boston Celtics and the Cleveland Cavaliers, not really surprising the Celtics are down in this series but have a chance to extent it with a win in this game. LeBron and the Cavaliers have looked very good in this opening series, they are fast off the ball and are not looking to hurry the ball up too much, one thing I have noticed is their intent on playing better more solid defense against the Celtics, more than likely because they know Boston is not too much of a scare.

Hawks faceoff with the last placed Nets

Not as easy as you think…

Atlanta Hawks vs. Brooklyn Nets Series

This will be one of the best first round matchups coming out of the Eastern conference as the top seeded Atlanta Hawks faceoff with the last placed Brooklyn Nets, a very important note for this game will be the fact that you should not take their seeded position as a deciding factor in this series. During the regular season the Atlanta Hawks faced this Nets team four times, winning every single one of those games but this Brooklyn team is full of veterans that know how to play in the post season and I do not see them getting swept in this series.

The Bulls have all the pressure in this series

The biggest series for these young Bucks

Chicago Bulls vs. Milwaukee Bucks series

I don’t think you could ask for a better first round series to learn from then playing the Chicago Bulls with all their stars back in action. Jason Kidd has done an incredible job with this Bucks team, taking them to post season for the first time in a long time with a team many people didn’t stand a chance and was set to be a lottery pick yet again. The Bulls have all the pressure in this series and more than likely in the next one too if they make it. All-star point guard Derrick Rose made his huge return to the court this season as he started out looking great, then he injured his knee yet again, it required surgery and he was out for almost half the season, only making his return to the hardwood a few days ago.

Denver Nuggets vs. Memphis Grizzlies

Have the Grizzlies let off the gas?

Denver Nuggets vs. Memphis Grizzlies
8:00 PM ET, January 29, 2015
FedEx Forum, Memphis, TN
Coverage: TNT

It seems to me that the Grizzlies might have just let off the gas here in recent weeks as they have come from the second best team in the League to a mid level team having arranged a losing record since the start of 2015. The Nuggets have been hurting all year; they have been plagued with injury as well as a very poor over all shooting percentage. Both of these teams will be pushing hard for a win in this game but even more so, on the Memphis side given that the Nuggets blew them out in early January by almost 30 points in Denver.

Milwaukee Bucks vs. Orlando Magic

Can the Bucks stay above water in Orlando?

Milwaukee Bucks vs. Orlando Magic
7:00 PM ET, January 29, 2015
Amway Center, Orlando, FL
Coverage: FSFL

This is the second of a four game series between these two teams as the Bucks travel to Orlando with an even record at .500. The Magic really dominated Milwaukee back in mid November of last year beating the Bucks by 16 points. Orlando is looking to bounce back a little after their horrible start but they have only won 5 games on their home court and are 17 games below .500. I don’t expect this to be the same defensively driving game as their first meeting was, this game will more about the shooting guards matchup and I see a lot of screen penetration plays to get to the rim and establish and inside presence.

New York Knicks vs. Indiana Pacers

As bad as the Pacers have been, this is a game they will win…

New York Knicks vs. Indiana Pacers
7:00 PM ET, January 29, 2015
Bankers Life Field house, Indianapolis, IN
Coverage: FSMW

These are two teams that just last season were considered power houses in the eastern conference, they both had very big off-season’s one with the re-signing of their all-star player and the other because of the great season they were coming off of. Then Indiana’s Paul George broke his foot and was out for this year and the Knicks simply just forgot how to play basketball all together. I would be surprised if either of these teams made it to triple figure points even if there was no defense being played all game. Read the rest of this entry »
