2013 NBA Playoffs Expert Picks: Third Round

Indiana gritted out a victory over New York, and now gets to be the next team with the unenviable task of taking on Miami. (cbsnews.com)

The Conference Finals are now underway; it’s San Antonio vs Memphis and Miami vs Indiana. While Miami remains rested after cruising, Indiana was late in finishing off New York. San Antonio dispatched the upstart Warriors, while the Grizzlies manhandled the heavily favored Thunder.

In our panel, that extra rest for Miami, not to mention their Big Three, has kept them as the favorite, while Memphis’ win over a powerhouse contender has earned them respect as well.

As before, picking the winner of a series is worth two points, while picking how may games each series will last is worth one point.

So check below to find out how precisely how our panelists believe the next two series will go, and come back once the Finals are set for the results.
