2011 NBA first round playoff Predictions

The 2011 NBA Playoffs start on Saturday afternoon. Here are the first round predictions. All series are best of seven.

Eastern Conference
#1 Bulls VS #8 Pacers- The Bulls won 62 games and are the favorite in the eastern conference. The Pacers won 37 games and made the playoffs because of a weak overall conference. Pick-  Bulls in 4

#4 Magic VS #5 Hawks- This should be a very entertaining series. Pick- Magic in 7

# 3 Celtics VS #6 Knicks- If Shaq is able to give anything this could be a short series. Expect Shaq to be limited and the Knicks to give the Celtics all they can handle. Pick- Celtics in 6

# 2 Heat VS #7 Sixers- The Sixers have the deepest bench but it will not be enough. Pick- Heat in 6

Western Conference
#1 Squrs VS #8 Grizzlies- It sounds like Manu is a no go for the Squrs. The Grizzlies are capable of knocking off the number one seed. Pick- Squrs in 7

#4 Thunder VS #5 Nuggets- The Nuggest traded away Carmelo and started playing better. Do not expect it to continue. Pick- Thunder in 5

#2 Lakers VS #7 Hornets- It is the playoffs so the Lakers will turn it on. Hornets should be able to win a game or  two. Pick- Lakers in 6

#3 Mavericks VS #6 Trail Blazers- This series could go either way. I expect this to be the only first round upset. Pick- Trail Blazers in 6
