L.A. won't lose this series, and no freakin just yet. Phil just needs to light a little fire under Pau's ass again, especially on the offensive end. It wouldn't be the first time.

But they will have trouble defending the perimeter threats out there, especially if Kobe is still hobbling. Durant/Westbrook, LeBron/Wade, or Rondo...those will be tough match-ups.

Expect Phil to pull a rabbit out of the hat one last time.

Hobblin' Kobe is the worst-case scenario. Strike that, Bynum having his yearly post-season knee injury in the next game or two would be the worst-case.

I still like the Bulls out in the East. I have no idea what the hell to think about the West. Oklahoma City?

Sorry, LMP, as a Bulls fan, I want the Hawks to close it out in game 6. I want no part of Dwight in the second round. Or all of your three point shooters.

As a Philly man, I like Jameer Nelson and will root for him.

Bulls officially advance, in spectacular fashion! They finally looked like the team that won 62 games.

Second round will start Monday...Bulls get to rest for nearly a week while ORL/ATL finish.

If Atlanta could force Orlando out of their offensive rhythm, then Chicago certainly could. Stopping ball movement and forcing the shooters to create their own shot would be Chicago's first priority.

That being said, Rose would be more hesitant to drive into the lane like a madman if Howard's around the rim. Plus, who's matching up with the Richardsons, Redick, Arenas or Anderson? I like this matchup for Orlando a lot, hopefully they can shoot well enough to win the next two games.

What's the over/under for the number of times we will hear about Kobe's bad ankle in the second half?

Hoping New Orleans can hold on and pull off the upset in the series. If both LA and SA lost in the first round, and OKC and Dallas got to duke it out in the WCF, that would be great. It's been LA and SA in the finals every year since 1999 with the exception of 2006. I'm ready for a new WC champion.

I wonder if you felt that way about the EC in the 90's when the Bulls won almost every year.

I'm just really weary about Orlando. The end of last year and the first two games(including preseason) of this year, they had our number. They just killed us over and over again. After the trades, the Bulls matched up better and won a couple against Orlando, and I wasn't as worried about Orlando anymore, but then the Magic go and take us down to the wire in the next-to-last game of the season without Dwight, and it takes Jameer letting the ball go a couple tenths of a second too late for us to escape with the victory. Meanwhile, we won by 18 and 33 the last two times we played Atlanta. Also, I feel Atlanta would take less games, thus conserving more energy for Boston/Miami.

Finally Lakers looking like champs again, firing on all cylinders. I'd say the bench beyond Odom and Brown could be better, but they haven't really been needed or taken many shots.

Everyone but Artest in double-digits, and he has 9. A good sign.

Peace out, Pacers. You played some tough ball.

I don't give a fuck if it's Orlando or Atlanta.
