Which lower seed can win the series vs their higher ranked opponents.

My picks are Atlanta who in my opinion has a favorable matchup vs the Magic

and in the West I think Memphis is gonna give San Antonio a big scare stretching the series to 7. But San Antonio will still win.

Good thread. You should put up a poll though. Make it easier to see what people are thinking the upsets could possibly be.
In the West I could see the Grizzlies upsetting the Spurs and the Nuggets upsetting the Thunder. The Grizzlies and Nuggets are playing some very good ball and matchup very well against their opponents. While I still think the Spurs and Thunder will win, I won't be surprised if they get knocked out in the first round.
In the East I could see the Hawks upsetting the Magic and the Knicks possibly upsetting the Celtics if they are healthy. The Hawks are a very very sneaky team and the Magic clearly got worse after the midseason moves they made. The Celtics also made themselves worse (for now, not for the future though) with the trade of Perkins considering their depth is now not too good down low. Plus they are old, just like we say about the Spurs every year, but they continue to surprise, so who really knows? :-) I'm actually also very curious to see how well the Heat can play together in the playoffs considering the playoffs are a totally different atmosphere than the regular season games. Their depth, or lack thereof might get them into some trouble. That's just my opinion.

I really don't understand the people saying that Atlanta has a favorable matchup vs Orlando. The Magic have absolutely dominated the Hawks over the past couple of seasons. Then I see people saying the Magic got worse after the midseason moves, that really doesn't make sense either, because they didn't. Also, the Hawks actually got worse after the moves they made. I look for the Magic to win that series in 5 games.

Here's last years series and neither team really got better or worse IMO, but either way what did the Hawks do to put them ahead of last years performance.

Orlando won the four games by an average of 25.3 points -- a total blowout that no one could have expected in a matchup between the teams that finished second and third in the Eastern Conference. It was the most lopsided four-game sweep in NBA playoff history, according to STATS LLC.

Portland over Dallas but I don't consider that an upset. Portland is a really good team.
Same with Atlanta/Orlando. Atlanta winning wouldn't be a shock either.

The 2 that come to mind are:

Memphis/Spurs
Knicks/Celtics

I think Memphis does have a legit shot at winning this series so I'll go with that one. If Manu isn't 100% then it makes the case even greater.

Funny, cause I'm thinking the exact same thing about the Bulls. They just look more and more like that team. You know, those "Regular Season Champs" that go out and kill everyone during the season, but get thourougly beaten in the 1st or 2nd round by a team that sleeps through the regular season but turns it on when it matters (C's anyone?)

I'm sorry, but this bulls team is not a team worthy of the #1 seed and took advantage of an old celtics squad that doesn't care about the regular season, a Heat team that is still trying to figure themselves out, and a vastly inferior conference in terms of competition. And I definitely don't think they are a team built to be a championship contender. Joakim Noah??? Get real........

That would be my upset pick, if the Pacers were better, but it still wouldn't surprise me if it did happen.

The only real upset I see would be Knicks over Celtics. Mavs/Trailblazers is a toss-up. I just remember Boston sucking at the end of last year and the turning it on in the playoffs. I will believe they are done when I see it.

Agree with all of this except the part about the Bulls not deserving the #1. They won more games than any other team in the league. Sure, they play in The Limp Dick Division and took advantage of an aging Boston squad and a yet-to-gel Miami team, but they still won more games that everyone else. They get the #1 and they deserve it. Period.

That said, the Bulls may struggle in the playoffs and I wouldn't be surprised if the Magic give them some trouble. But out of all the teams in the East, they have the easiest path to the Finals.

I think Portland will beat Dallas, but I don't consider it an upset.

Me too the Blazers are a really good team peaking at the right time. I'd almost be kinda surprised if the Mavs won the series. Also I don't consider a 5 beating a 4 to be that huge of an upset, so I won't even count the ATL-ORL and OKC-DEN series.

Both #1s, the Bulls and Spurs, seem to be pretty safe in my mind, and although the Grizz are a solid team, and playing well I'd be shocked if they beat the Spurs. The Bulls-Pacers series isn't going more than 5 games.

I think the biggest lock besides the Bulls-Pacers series is the Lakers-Hornets series. I wouldn't be surprised if the Lakers swept them. The Sixers may give the Heat some trouble, but as much as I'd like to see it, I don't think the Sixers have the firepower to overcome the Heat's stifling defense.

I already said my opinion on Mavs-Blazers. So now on to my New York Knicks and the Celtics. Although the Celtics beat the Knicks 4-0 in the season series, 2 of those games were without Melo (even though both of these were even close), and one was a battle of the benches (yesterday). All of the games have been close, and the Knicks have been winning late in the game in at least 2 of those games. With that being said I think this will be a great series, and although the Celtics are still the favorite, and one thing you can never underestimate is the heart of a champion. I hope I'm wrong, but I like the Celtics in a very tight contested series.

All of this makes you sound so ignorant! Bulls probally wont be in the finals, because of thier shooting guard situation, but it wont be at the hands of the pacers. Also if the Heat are still trying to figure things out so are The Bulls with all the new players and injurys to key players.

Denver is so deep thats why. Wilson Chandler is such an underrated defender and I think he will give Durant some problems. Durant will get his, but itll be difficult. They have Ty Lawson who has proved that he can be a starter in the NBA, and Felton off the bench, these two will definately cancel out Westbrook. Who on their team can stop Gallo? And we cant forget about Jr Smith who can go for 30+ any given night. Nene will not be as effective, he just needs to keep Perkins off the boards which is easier said than done. Lets not forget that this team was dealing with a lot of issues with the whole melo thing and it affected their play a lot. They are really hot right now, and very capable of beating OKC imo.

Funny, cause I'm thinking the exact same thing about the Bulls. They just look more and more like that team. You know, those "Regular Season Champs" that go out and kill everyone during the season, but get thourougly beaten in the 1st or 2nd round by a team that sleeps through the regular season but turns it on when it matters (C's anyone?)

I'm sorry, but this bulls team is not a team worthy of the #1 seed and took advantage of an old celtics squad that doesn't care about the regular season, a Heat team that is still trying to figure themselves out, and a vastly inferior conference in terms of competition. And I definitely don't think they are a team built to be a championship contender. Joakim Noah??? Get real........

That would be my upset pick, if the Pacers were better, but it still wouldn't surprise me if it did happen.

cool story bro but i actually thought the sixers would cause i upset regardless of who they played so i choose the sixers

Sixers over the Heat. In 5. That team can't handle the pressure of the playoffs.

cmon this is the nba, not the nfl, theres rarely any upsets esp the first round.
the best chance of one happening is the hawks beating the magics but thats not even a real upset

Which lower seed can win the series vs their higher ranked opponents.

My picks are Atlanta who in my opinion has a favorable matchup vs the Magic

and in the West I think Memphis is gonna give San Antonio a big scare stretching the series to 7. But San Antonio will still win.
I really should have picked the Grizzlies my Gut told me this was gonna be a hard thought series but seems like the Grizzlies are walking away with it.

Why was this thread pulled up? To prove you were right? Do you get PSD points or something?
