I gotta vote for my hometown team, the Pistons.  Good!

It's funny you put the 76ers on the list; I don't think they're even slottd to be in the playoffs right now. Confused

Yeah, Detroit belongs on that list! After a slow start, they've really picked up during the last couple of months, peaking at the right time.

Why aren't the sonics on that list? They have one of the best records in the NBA.

This is the Spurs year again.  Just wait and see.  They don't have the best record in the NBA for no reason.

Hate to break it to you (wait, no I don't...I hate the Lakers!), but if the playoffs started today, Los Angeles wouldn't be in them. If they make the playoffs, they'll probably face San Antonio or Phoenix first round. Now Kobe gets to face the consequences of chasing everybody out of LA.

This will be a great playoff year.  The Lakers will not even make the playoffs Evil  Grin  Good! .  The East will produce a great Eastern Conference Final with the Pistons and the Heat.  It will go 6 games with the Heat advancing... proving to the Lakers brass that Kobe is the one that should have been traded.

In the West it will be wild.  The Suns and Sonics are doing great... but you can't count out McGrady and Yao in Houston... but in the end, when the dust settles... San Antonio will prevail in the West... giving us a great NBA Final with the Spurs and the Heat.

Duncan, Parker, and Ginobili are unstoppable when they are healthy... and when they're not you have Barry, Horry, and Mohammed to take up the slack.  In the end San Antonio's depth will prevail.  They not only have probably the best player (not the flashiest) in the league in Tim Duncan... but they also have the deepest bench the NBA has seen in a good while.  I predict the Spurs will beat the Heat in 5 games if they're healthy and in 6 if they aren't 100%.

Hmmm . . .

The game today:

Spurs: 101
Pistons: 110

Kind of an odd score, given that these are two great defensive teams. And Duncan sprained his ankle two minutes into the game. But it was great to watch. The Spurs definitely had the better bench, which is saying a lot because the Pistons regularly have one of the best in the league.

Yes... a very good effort by a discouraged Spurs team.  But in a 7 game series... I would have to give the edge to the Spurs.  Give them a game or two to adjust and they'll be just as potent (almost).  

BTW... I'm also a big fan of the Pistons... I went to school with Joe Dumars and have been following the Pistons since they drafted him in 1985.  Those Piston teams in the late 80's were arguably the best squads ever.

Today's game was very out of character for both teams.  I was expecting a score more like 86-84.  Both great defensive teams... I'm not sure what happened to the defenses... I think the Spurs were rattled by the loss of Tim Duncan... and the Pistons are without Larry Brown for a while... could have something to do with it.

So far my analysis has been right on.  The only shaky part are the Detroit Pistons.  The winner of tonight's game will end up prevailing in the East.  If Shaq can stay out of foul trouble I really think that the Heat will win.  

Honestly though... I really hope that the Pistons win.  A Spurs/Pistons final would be a defensive fight.  There are also a lot of great match-ups between them.

But I'll still put the Spurs on top of either of those teams... especially with the play of Ginobili and Horry.  I predict the Spurs in 6 against Detroit, and in 5 against Miami.  Let's see if I'm right.

I said it two and a half months ago, and I'll stick with my prediction.  Detroit will win games 5 and 6 against Miami, and then beat the Spurs in a 7 game NBA final.

Chris,

You might be one heckuva trombone player, but it's just wrong to think that San Antonio can bang with Detroit, sick and wrong. San Antonio might have beaten Phoenix 4-1, but Phoenix plays absolutely no defense, and all those games were still close. Put Tayshaun on Manu, Chauncey will eat Tony Parker alive in the post, Ben Wallace can take TD (especially since TD has those gimp ankles), and I don't think San Antonio has enough great defenders to keep up with the 4 scoring threats that Detroit starts.

Pistons win tonight, and Saturday. They take the Spurs in 6.
