NBA Playoffs Expert Picks: Round 2

For those of you who somehow survived a grueling Round 1, here we are already with Round 2. The experts at Sports of Boston had mixed results in playoff picking over the first round. The Mavericks shocked all of us in knocking off the Spurs so easily, while the Hawks and Heat played a boring seven-game series (each game was decided by double digits).

The Celtics and Bulls partook in one of the most entertaining series of all time, but no one had the Bulls so for us, it doesn’t matter.

Our Round 2 picks yield little surprises, but some SoB staffers did join the dark side and chose the Magic to send the C’s packing. We will see about that!

  1. There weren’t too many surprises in round 1 as seen from my 7-1 record, I just under estimated how old the Spurs are
