Didn't see a thread so I am going to make it. Here are the rules from past years:

venturalakersfan wrote:
It is playoff time and time to see who can do the best at predicting how things will shake out. Enter your selections in this thread, including who you think will win each series and how many games you think the series will last. Point totals are 5 points for each correct Round 1 pick, 8 for Round 2, 12 for Round 3 and 15 for Round 4. For each game of the series you are off, you will lose one point.


East:

Celtics (1) vs Bulls (8)
Cavaliers (2) vs Pacers (7)
Raptors (3) vs Bucks (6)
Wizards (4) vs Hawks (5)

West:

Warriors (1) vs Blazers (8)
Spurs (2) vs Grizzlies (7)
Rockets (3) vs Thunder (6)
Clippers (4) vs Jazz (5)

Entries are due before the first game.

No offense man, I'm not giving any credence your Bulls upset call after they already won game one. At least one other person called the Jazz upset in this thread, so that's less of a thing. I'm sure you'll tell me you thought the Bulls would win the series even before posting, but I ain't buyin', hefe.

I did always think the Bulls would win the series due to having more talent, the fact that the seem to play better against the better teams, and I was expecting playoffs Wade from last year to show up but with help (Jimmy) this time. If Whiteside didn't go down that series would have been the Heat's. Also if Bulls played the Cavs in the first round I would have picked the Bulls in 7.
But, I know you won't believe me, so this is all for nought.
