Round One:

Warriors-Mavs: Mavs in 7, Warriors don't have enough playoff experience.

Suns-Lakers: Suns in 6. Simply the better team and also the Lakers don't give much support to Kobe.

Spurs-Nuggets: Spurs in 5. The Spur defense will shut down Melo, and the Nuggets will struggle to make up for the deficit.

Utah-Houston: Houston in 7. Simply the better team and Boozer won't be able to dominate against Yao.


Round Two:

Mavs-Houston: Mavs in 5. Mavs deep roster will give Houston problems.

Suns-Spurs: Spurs in 7. Spurs are masters at slowing the game down to their pace even when facing a fast-paced opponent. Suns have no edge when the game is slow.


Conference Finals:

Mavs-Spurs: Spurs in 7. Duncan will win the battle between him and Dirk, and the Spurs backcourt has the edge and better D.

Finals:

Spurs-Pistons: Pistons in 7. I think the Pistons have what it takes and although the Spurs have a frontcourt advantage the Pistons have a clear backcourt advantage.

Mavs 1, Warriors 4
Rockets 4, Jazz 3
Suns 4, Lakers 2
Spurs 4, Nuggets 2

Pistons 4, Magic 1
Heat 4, Bulls 3
Cavs 4, Wizards 0
Raptors 4, Nets 3
--
Rockets 2, Warriors 4
Spurs 3, Suns 4

Pistons 3, Heat 4
Cavs 4, Raptors 2
--
Suns 3, Warriors 4
Cavs 4, Heat 3
--
Cavs 3, Warriors 4

Now my real prediction. Last one was based on being a Warriors fan of course. :mrgreen:

Mavs 1, Warriors 4
Rockets 4, Jazz 3
Suns 4, Lakers 2
Spurs 4, Nuggets 2

Pistons 4, Magic 0
Heat 4, Bulls 3
Cavs 4, Wizards 0
Raptors 3, Nets 4

Rockets 3, Warriors 4
Spurs 4, Suns 3

Pistons 3, Heat 4

The Warriors dominated the Mavs this season and the way they are playing, the Mavs are the ones that look weaker. The Warriors have them in every position except PF and just have too much firepower

It's actually the truth! The team has shown more than once that they do well against the Mavs so it is not unlikely that they will win
