2013 NBA Playoffs Update: 2nd Round

May 07, 2013

The 2013 NBA Basketball Playoffs are swinging into round two with some great shocking surprises and solid expectations. If you're from Los Angeles, you might not be crazy about the results as both the Lakers and the Clippers were eliminated, but if your from New York, you're probably happy that the Knicks are moving through for the first time in 13 years. Let's take a look at the rest of the NBA Playoff picture...

1st Round Upsets

The biggest upset of the first round was Golden State Warriors beating the Denver Nuggets, but more shocking was how the Memphis Grizzlies took down Chris Paul and Blake Griffin of the LA Clippers. It seems like there is something in the air in Los Angeles that is keeping these All-Star NBA players from winning... Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard and Steve Nash of the LA Lakers lost all 4 of their Playoff games to the San Antonio Spurs.

Heat Hopes

The Miami Heat are on pace to repeat as NBA Champs. They swept the Milwaukee 4-0 and barely broke a sweat. Next up are the Chicago Bulls which should be a great series considering how the Bulls have given the Heat a tough time in the regular season. When Miami was on the amazing 27-game winning streak, Chicago was the team to shut them down from getting the World record.

Pacers vs Knicks

It's one of the oldest rivalries in the NBA. Ever since Reggie Miller scored 8 points in only 9 seconds to help shock Patrick Ewing and the NewYork Knicks back in 1993, the fans from Indiana and New York hate each other. The biggest NBA/New York Knick fan ever, Spike Lee, will be able to tell you all about the rivalry. In fact, there was an ESPN 30 for 30 documentary made all about this rivalry between New York and Indiana. Check it out...

How the West was Won?

It's almost obvious that the Oklahoma City Thunder and the San Antonio Spurs are destined to play a rematch for the Western Conference Finals. You might remember that last year, the Spurs were up 2-0 before the Thunder devastated them winning the next 4 games straight... even down 18 points in game 3. Kevin Durant and Kevin Westbrook are still flying high but this year they lost one of their big guns James Harden, so maybe it's San Antonio's turn to beat the Heat in the Finals.

Does anyone love Eugenie (Genie) Bouchard? She's  a Canadian Female Professional Tennis player! I'm not a major fan, but I like her. She's 6th in WTA!  :)  Just wondering. So, we could talk about her.  I'm not an expert, though.
