#1 San Antonio Spurs vs. #8 Memphis Grizzlies
Prediction: San Antonio in 6.
-The Grizzlies aren't a bad team, but the Spurs are too skilled and too experienced to mess this one up.
#2 L.A. Lakers vs. #7 New Orleans Hornets
Prediction: New Orleans in 7
-The Hornets return to their early-season form, and Kobe Bryant is so preoccupied with name calling that he forgets to put the team on his back.
#3 Dallas Mavericks vs. #6 Portland Trail Blazers
Prediction: Dallas in 5.
- Mark Cuban wears Shape-Ups. The Dallas Mavericks are shaping up to win this series easily.
#4 Oklahoma City Thunder vs. #5 Denver Nuggets
Prediction: Oklahoma City in 7.
-The Nuggets are playing great basketball right now. But I just can't pick against Kevin Durant. He'll take over games late and find a way to get it done.
