I can see the Nets stealing a game over the Raptors.  They play hard.

That Rockets / Thunder series should be a tough fought series.
Yup

Here's mine.

Bucks over Magic in 4 (this is basically a "bye week" for the Bucks LOL)
Raptors over Nets in 5
Celtics over Sixers in 6
Heat over Pacers in 7

Lakers over Blazers in 6
Clippers over Mavs in 5
Nuggets over Jazz in 7
Rockets over Thunder in 6

The Rockets-Thunder series IMO will be the most exciting and electrifying one. That's a great matchup. I also think Heat-Pacers will be an exciting series. Despite what Butler says, I don't think the Butler-Warren rivalry is dead and the Pacers have been playing hard in the bubble so far. Won't be easy. I see it going the distance. I say Miami in 7, but if I had to see an upset happening in this first round in either conference, I'd pick this matchup or Nuggets-Jazz (which I also see going 7 games). I'm not predicting it, but I wouldn't be surprised if Utah and/or Indiana pulled it off.

I'm really looking forward to seeing Luka in the playoffs. I still can't believe Phoenix, Sacramento, and (basically) Atlanta passed on him.

I don't understand these weekday afternoon games. Like who has time to watch basketball at 2pm on a Monday?

Apparently the same people who saw a Bruins 8 PM game get cancelled due to a 5 OT game before it, and had to watch the game 11 AM the next day  :P

It's just all funky right now with this pandemic. But they have to fit in all the games and day games in the weekday are a way to do it. As we progress through each round though, I think things will normalize a bit as less teams remain in the field.

Probably is a logistical thing. They have a lot of games to get through today.

Last year the refs swallowed their whistles a lot during playoffs.

Will that be the case this season, or does the bubble/COVID make them more likely to discourage excessive contact?
