anyone else notice how there were no upsets?

Actually they have the Rockets winning and their 5th seed....but yea.

Oh no a bunch of Hollingers gathering together...

I'm a math guy but there's no way in hell you can use math in order to predict sports outcomes...

clap clap, guess we dont need to play the games uh?

WOnder if Golden State Rapping Dirkie the blonde ***** in the first roun being an 8th seed was something fitting that maths.
