Warriors over Clippers?

Hawks over Pacers?

Nets over Raptors?

Trailblazers over Rockets?

More than 2?

Nets and Hawks

04-21-2014, 02:26 PM
To be honest, they all could.

I'll take Warriors and Hawks though.

04-21-2014, 02:28 PM
I like the Nets to do it the most out of those four although I could see any of those teams doing it.

04-21-2014, 02:34 PM
I guess all 4 realistically could. If I'm picking 2, I would say Nets/Blazers.

04-21-2014, 02:59 PM
I hope the blazers go all the way... My western conference team and pick... Knicks4blazers

04-21-2014, 03:11 PM
I really feel like they all could. Warriors, Blazers, Hawks and Nets. I actually think they all pull it off.

04-21-2014, 03:22 PM
I think the Nets will. I still don't trust Toronto and the Nets really picked it up in the second half of the regular season.

Homer pick but I still believed the Dubs could win this series without Bogut... Still say they'll win in 6

04-21-2014, 04:00 PM
Warriors, nets, blazers

Could go either way though

04-21-2014, 04:09 PM
Pacers will win their series but the other 3 series could go either way. As a warriors fan I see us winning.

04-21-2014, 04:10 PM
I still think all 4 of the home teams win their series. I'm sure it won't happen, but yeah. NJ is most likely to pull it off, though. But I still think Houston, LAC and Indy are the superior teams.

04-21-2014, 04:50 PM
I will go with Nets even though it isn't an upset .The Nets were the favorites even before game 1 .

I don't see Warriors beating the Clippers .

04-21-2014, 05:01 PM
If the Nets won is that even considered an upset? I have them down as the favorites in that series. As good as the Raptors have been during the season, the playoffs is a completely different monster and a team lead by Kyle Lowry and Demar Derozan isnt going to cut it.

My second team I gotta go with the blazers. The win against Houston was HUGE! A Game 1 overtime is on the home team to win and the Blazers pulled it out even when LMA and Lopez fouled out early in overtime.

Cant expect Toronto to ever get any respect, so I agree with whoever said " are the nets over toronto truly an upset" you're right, it wouldnt be. Since Toronto NEVER gets any praise.

Oh stuff your sorrys in a sack

04-21-2014, 07:35 PM
I think the Nets/Blazers are the two most likely teams to do it. I feel that LA can easily take a game in Golden State (kinda a back and forth between the teams), and the Pacers couldn't have fallen THAT far off.... could they?

04-21-2014, 07:39 PM
I don't consider the Nets an upset. I think the teams are evenly matched with the edge to the Nets based on experience.

If we can look at the Raptors through the lens of the post-Rudy Gay trade, I think we have to apply the same measure to the Nets and their play since the New Year considering this is the first time this roster is together and Jason Kidd's first year as a Head Coach.

Other than that, I think the Hawks will pull out the upset. Indy is a total mess, and the Hawks are a terrible match up for them with Horford out. Antic + Millsap is a nightmare for a big front line when they both play from the perimeter. West and Hibbert just aren't mobile enough to contest the 3 point line AND get back to the paint to protect the rim. It's a dream scenario for Jeff Teague once he blows past the perimeter.

I still think the Clippers and Rockets win. GSW is unlikely to win 4 games with Bogut out. You can only last so long without rim protection and you know Doc Rivers will have a plan to exploit it more. Houston has more offensive flexibility than Portland which means they're more likely to survive even if one of Harden or Howard has a bad game. If Lillard or LMA have a bad game, Portland is pretty much sunk. That said, it's definitely possible for Portland to pull out the upset. I believe Stotts is a significantly better in-game coach than McHale, and in the play offs that counts for something.

I don't know how I forgot about Wizards over Bulls.

Can a mod please add this to the poll?

warriors and nets have the best chance, imo

04-21-2014, 08:28 PM
warriors have always been underdogs

04-21-2014, 08:28 PM
My Bad. Wrong thread lol

04-22-2014, 04:54 AM
all 4 home teams will win! book it

04-22-2014, 05:23 AM
Atlanta upsetting Indiana would be epic!

04-22-2014, 06:31 AM
Brooklyn though it's not really an upset

Wizards even though I pick them to win the series anyway

I'm so back and fourth with Memphis and okc. I had okc win in 7 but Memphis seem to have them figured out

04-22-2014, 11:00 AM
Nets and Blazers

04-22-2014, 11:20 AM
If the blazers play like they did in game 1, they have a pretty good chance to end this in 6

Howard and harden also started out playing beyond horrible so hopefully tomorrow they come out guns blazing and motivated to run them out of Toyota center

04-22-2014, 11:22 AM
There's no way Harden plays that badly for an entire series.

04-22-2014, 11:35 AM
There's no way Harden plays that badly for an entire series.

I'd expect the first 2-4 plays of the game tomorrow to be for harden, get his confidence up. Howard needs to play like he did in the fourth quarter, aggressive and imposed his will in Lopez.

LMA will get his 30+ a game this series, lillard is who the rockets need to contain
