Eastern Conference Final Standings and Playoff Predictions

Here is what I think the East Standings will look like at seasons end:

1
Miami
2
Boston
3
Chicago
4
Orlando
5
Atlanta
6
Philadelphia
7
New York
8
Indiana

 EAST FIRST ROUND

(1)Miami Heat vs. (8)Indiana Pacers
Notes: Miami will get their act together come playoff time, but look for the surging Pacers to give them a fight.
Prediction-Miami in 6

(2)Boston Celtics vs. (7)New York Knicks
Notes: Boston will prove to be too much for the new look Knicks, but should be the most interesting playoff match up in the East.
Prediction-Boston in 6

(3)Chicago Bulls vs. (6)Philadelphia 76ers
Notes: My upset special! call me crazy, but I am not sold on the Bulls for some reason.  The Sixers bench plays a key role in the win.
Prediction-Philadelphia in 7

(4)Orlando Magic vs. (5)Atlanta Hawks
Notes: Let’s just say that the Hawks will not go down easily unlike last year, but the lack of a point guard with experience will cost them the series.
Prediction-Orlando in 6

EAST SEMI FINALS

(1)Miami Heat vs. (4)Orlando Magic
Notes: Mike Bibby will play a big role, as the Heat stroll into the east finals.
Prediction-Miami in 5

(2)Boston Celtics vs. (6)Philadelphia 76ers
Notes: UPSET…..I’m kidding.  Look for Celtics to steam roll the 76ers, after their long series vs. Bulls
Prediction-Boston in 5

EAST FINALS

(1)Miami Heat vs. (2)Boston Celtics
Notes: Maybe next year Heat fans.  The experience that the Celtic players bring to the table will be overwhelming for the Heat.
Prediction-Boston in 7
