2010 NBA Playoffs Expert Picks: Round 1 Results

Atlanta powered into the second round, claiming the right to face Orlando. (nba.com)

The first round is over, and the second round couldn’t wait. Cleveland actually lost a game to Chicago, Boston surprisingly didn’t win in seven games, in spite of the referees’ best efforts to ensure the Heat would win in four. Atlanta took a while to win, but did so in decisive fashion. The Spurs and Jazz were this year’s lesser seeds to make it past Round 1, and each will have another tough test up next.

So far, it’s a pretty close race between our experts overall. Three are tied at 16, trailing KC and Mike. The Celtics hustled me a little, so yours truly is lagging behind at the moment. The Mavs and Nuggets didn’t help, either.

But there are three rounds left, with only seven points separating last from first, so it’s not over yet. To see where we all stand after Round 1, check below:
