2014 NBA Playoffs Expert Picks: First Round

Miami is facing perhaps their toughest road yet to a title, with Indiana and several West teams waiting in the wings. (erh.noaa.gov)

The NBA Playoffs are upon us, and the should be good. Toronto and Washington are back in the postseason, Miami will try to three-peat from #2 in the East and a tough finish for Indiana demotes an Indiana/Miami Eastern Conference Finals from a sure thing. And that’s not to mention the loaded Western Conference.

This year’s Pick ‘Em reflects that, with three out of four unanimous first round picks coming from the East. That power out West is also leading to some picks for longer series. Still, nobody can afford to let their guard down in the least.

Scoring for the Pick ‘Em is as follows:

  • Picking the winner of a series is worth two points.
  • Picking how many games a series will last is worth one point.

So check below for the complete pick sets, and come back once the first round is complete for updated results.
