2013 NBA Playoffs Expert Picks

LeBron James is certainly a favorite to repeat as champion with the Heat; will anyone be able to knock off Miami? (gstatic.com)

The playoffs are upon us, and it’s time to bring you our selections for the first round. There are certainly plenty of storylines to follow: another step in the Boston/New York rivalry, Chicago without Derrick Rose, Golden State and Brooklyn returning to the postseason and others.

The Eastern Conference was the easier to choose, with three of the four series winners being unanimously picked. In the West, only the Thunder received every selection. In any case, the Clippers and Grizzlies look to be the most entertaining series, with both teams finishing 32-9 at home, 24-17 on the road and on winning notes.

In this postseason-long series of picks, a correct series winner pick is worth two points while the length of the series in games is worth one point. So check below for everyone’s choices for the first round, and come back upon the round’s conclusion for the first set of results.
