I also don't know if they'd get the same quality outside shooting during the playoffs. Guys like Augustin have been huge for Chicago. Does it do that against the Heat? I don't know that he can.

So I'd have to say I'd be at least "a little surprised".

I think San Antonio is the favourite, now that they got any finals game 7 on their court.

It's almost ironic how the Bulls are using DJ Augustin to steal the third seed from us

I like how loose and confident the Knicks are playing. It's almost like "ok your a playoff team, we're gonna show you". Plus Woodson came out and blamed himself for the bad season, maybe his team is saying " we got your back, we'll get this win for you" or maybe I'm just dreaming because I really want that third seed.

not that it matters but we are only one loss short of CHI in div....i guess all that means is if we do get 3rd they can whine about how close they are

aaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh.....this playoff positioning is so screwy. If we get 3rd, we get a more favourable first round, but then have to face the Heat in the 2nd which leaves zero chance at the conference finals. If we finish 4th, we will have a hard time advancing to the 2nd round, but we'd have a legit chance of getting to the EC finals in a 2nd round match against the Pacers, as long as we could surprise the Nets.

yeah, yeah, I'm sure you'd be posting plenty of R.I.P. smilies before the end of game 1, even if we faced the Pacers in the 2nd round
