TrueHoop’s Stat Geek Smackdown 2010

So it’s time for the NBA’s second season, once again. I’ll do my own predictions here, since I’m no NBA expert. 5 points are awarded for correctly picking the winner, with an additional 2 for correctly picking the number of games played.

First Round (39)

CHI-CLE (CLE in 4) (5, CLE won in 5)
CHA-ORL (ORL in 5) (5, ORL won in 4)
MIL-ALT (ATL in 5) (5, ATL won in 7)
MIA-BOS (BOS in 6) (5, BOS won in 5)
OKC-LAL (LAL in 6) (7, LAL won in 6)
SAS-DAL (SAS in 5) (5, SAS won in 6)
POR-PHO (PHO in 6) (7, PHO won in 6)
UTH-DEN (DEN in 5) (0, UTH won in 6)

SAS-PHO (SAS in 6) (0, PHO won in 4)
UTH-LAL (LAL in 5) (5, LAL won in 4)
BOS-CLE (CLE in 6) (0, BOS won in 6)
