As expected this year’s 1st round showdown was must see TV with 4 teams East/West included, needing a game 7 to decide their faith on who moved on to the Conference Semifinals. With that being said the only 2 teams in the Playoff run coming in well rested for the second round are The Miami Heat who swept The Bobcats 4-0 and The Washington Wizards who outplayed The Chicago Bulls 4-1.
Now the “HYPE” continues for the second round, The Indiana Pacers will be going into battle with The Washington Wizards while The Defending Champs The Miami Heat face off with the only team they could not beat during the regular season, The Brooklyn Nets. REAL TALK!
The excitement alone surrounding this battle will undeniably be a series for the ages to come. (Reminiscing of the Heat/Celtics saga) the animosity these two competitive teams have for one another will be on display for all to see come Tuesday night May 6, 2014.
No rest for the West as each team took a longer journey into getting to the Conference Semis. The top seeded Spurs will be looking to slow down the hungry hot shooting Trail Blazers while L.A.’s newest representatives The Clippers will be battling it out with their Nemesis The Oklahoma Thunder.
This series will certainly be an exciting one to keep watch on considering how both teams are now finding a groove in team play well displayed by the way they both took convincing control of their opponents in the first round of an exhausting game 7.
Tune in Monday night May 5, 2014 and see who will be taking first crack at establishing their dominance at both end of the floor.
