I hated that loss to the bobcats, I thought a 15-6 end run was possible.

EASTERN Conference:

1) Miami

5) New York
6) Brooklyn
7) Milwaukee
8) Atlanta

Boston is coming up fast, Milwaukee has multiple games left versus teams like the Magic, Charlotte, etc. Rose's return will catapult Chicago to a top 3 seed..

First Round:

1) Miami vs. Atlanta
2) Indiana vs. Milwaukee
3) Chicago vs. Brooklyn
4) Boston vs. New York

What's your predictions?

Current Standings:

http://espn.go.com/nba/standings

Pacers are dropping fast of late..

if these are the standings at the end of the season they would get by Boston, probably a 6 or 7 game series, but honestly there is no way they would beat Miami in the next round the way they are playing right now.

There in a tough spot because they haven't been full strength as a team all season (and won't be with Amar'e out). Now with the Melo injury it would be smart to rest him but tbh that would also pose them a risk of them sliding even further and having a tougher opponent in the first round.

Out of your mind if you think Bucks are not finishing 8th seed.

I blame injuries to key players. Does OP agree?

Another loss for New York and injuries are not an excuse Chicago has been playing without half of the roster for the past two months

Chicago has been starting their third string point guard they've been missing their starting shooting guard of course Derek Rose and Mr. Gibson is one of the best big men off the bench especially for young players throughout the NBA, And they are still going to finish top three

The Knicks don't have the depth to sustain injuries equivalent to what Chicago has the season

A diva, mostly from urban cities and ghettos, that has reason to believe she is every mans eye candy. Unfortunately, she's wrong.
Still not making sense.
