Tampa Bay vs. Philly: Tampa Bay is playing like they are on a mission this year. TB in 6.
San Jose vs. Calgary: Calgary (a 6th seed) knocked off Detroit, the "best team in hockey." But Nashville (an 8th seed) nearly did the same. The Red Wings are quite simply: Playoff Chokers. They should fire their coach. Anyway, Calgary has rabid fans, but San Jose has a better team. SJ in 6.
Indiana vs. Miami: Indy in 5. Miami is a good young team. But they ain't Indy...
Detroit vs. New Jersey: NJ swept the Pistons 4-0 last year. Won't happen this year. Detroit wins in 5.
Lakers vs. Spurs: The defending champs are up against an all-star lineup. But, I've got both good news and bad news for Kobe. Good News: You won't go to prison. Bad News: You won't be in the playoffs much longer. Spurs in 6.
Sacramento vs. Minnesota: Garnett is a great player, but not a good leader. Sacramento in 7.
