2012 NBA Playoffs Expert Picks: 2nd Round Results

San Antonio may be 8-0 in the postseason, but Oklahoma City will be a much more difficult challenge. (http://cdn.costumesupercenter.com)

After the second round, there are some exciting results. The Celtics just managed to hold off Philadelphia’s incredible run, while Miami overcame Chris Bosh’s injury to overcome the Pacers. And once more, the Spurs and Thunder steamrolled their opponents, having lost a combined one game so far.

None of that was entirely surprising to our panel of experts, and other than a few Lakers votes, was unanimously chosen. With a series of length four, five, six and seven games each, it was an issue for some to guess that aspect of the second round, but others chose series lengths well enough.

All that leaves a dead heat among all panelists; everyone is within three points of each other. So check below for the complete results of Round 2, and check back Tuesday for next round’s selections.
