Wow. I got most of my predictions right except Blazers and Pacers in 2nd round.
How many points do I get?
Go Spurs and Pistons.
I can tell you right now, Pistons will not beat the Nets because of Kidd and Martin. These two players have increased their efficency, a great indication of who is playing better ball, in the playoffs. There is no doubt in my mind that the Nets will win the series in five or less. The Nets will simply outwork the Pistons and the Pistons will get more physical once they realize they can not match them skill wise. Pistons have not faced a team who have 1) 2 legit all stars, in which one of them is a super star. 2) A team that is well balanced.
I have yet to even mentioned Richard Jefferson. RJ, who has also increased his efficency in the playoffs, if anything is the ex factor. He can do just about anything and is probably a top 5 swing man in the East.
Simply, the Nets are just to good for the Pistons.
