-----------------------------------

This will probably be the most hyped 1st round series of the playoff. This is the matchup that New York wanted. But truth is, they don't want it! Heat will beat these boys in 5 games. That is unless the league stretches this out for ratings. Heat-Knicks is a real rivalry, but Knicks don't match up with this Heat squad.

Two great defensive teams going against each other, one of the most interesting first round match-ups. I got Miami winning this series but it should be fun to watch.

It'll be interesting to see if the use Shumpert on on LBJ, pesky defender.

Novak is going to be key in stretching that Miami D.

This is the series I pick the upset. NY in 6 games. I really like that NY lineup. Plus I believe NY can slow it down and get into some half court ball, which is a weakness of Miami

I dont see the Knicks putting up much of a fight in this series, unless Melo goes crazy and starts hitting everything he throws up. The problem I see for the Knicks is they have to slow the game down and make it a half-court game, but I dont know if their offense can handle the pressure the Heat will throw at them. Remember- last year the Heat really stepped up their defense once the playoffs started, and its going to happen again this year. I dont know if the Knicks offense will be able to handle the pressure- nobody has really taken over the creator/ facilitator role since Lin went down, and when the Knicks start running isolations they tend to jack up a lot of bad shots. I dont see them hitting enough of those shots to win this series

Im interested in seeing what kind of scrutiny Melo takes when the Knicks lose. To me, Melo is a great player, but NBA fans coddle him and make excuses for his lack of postseason success. He came in the same draft as LeBron, is a year older, and yet you rarely hear people demand he add rings or even Finals appearances to his legacy. 9 seasons and he's only been out of the 1st round once. I don't think that changes this season either.

I think it's because he isn't nearly gifted a player as LBJ. It may not be fair but there are greater expectations for LBJ because he is more physically talented. Melo is one of the best, if not the best scorer in the NBA. But his defense is too inconstant, he can show up big against good competition but not all the time.

Looks like Tyson Chandler will miss game 1 with the flu. Tough break for NY.

Man, come on! That's no flagrant
I can't tell if Lebron's getting fouled or not, all that damn flopping he's doing. New York is done...

Great first half for Miami... I am loving it... They are active, moving, great team defense.... Bosh has missed some gimmies down low but the aggressive offense is creating free throws....

I will say the one out of bounds fouls was a little sell job by LBJ, though I think it was still a foul...

The flagrant call was questionable, looked worst than it was... def a foul and LBJ did get pretty bad whiplash on that play.

Lebron has to be trolling everybody. Why else would the best player on the planet flop so blatantly so consistently despite it being a blow out. Dude is 280 pounds of pure muscle and falls down whenever anyone puts a hand on him. Sometimes I think basketball is basically just soccer for black people.
