2012 NBA Playoffs Expert Picks: 2nd Round

The Lakers gutted out a tough win against the Nuggets, but the Thunder are well-rested. (

After a rough first round, the second round is now underway. The 76ers are trying to continue their run in a dogfight against Boston, while the injuries continue to hit key players with Chris Bosh straining an abdominal muscle. Unfortunately for the Pacers, two of the Big Three are as healthy as ever.

As far as our selections go, things are looking quite similar to the first round. Once again, all our panelists are unanimous in selecting division winners for all but one series. Once more, the highest seeds are thought to cruise through relatively quickly, while the closer seeds are thought to have a more drawn out series.

So there you have it. Check below for the complete picks, and check back after Round 2 for the results.
