    Default 2009 NBA Playoffs 2nd Round: (1) Cleveland vs (4) Atlanta

    I'm thinking this will be closer than most people believe. Atlanta has a lot of big wing defenders, and are athletic enough to challenge the Cavs on the perimeter.

    How the Hawks handle Illgauskus is going to be key, i think. They field a pretty short frontline and he usually has a field day with those.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    I see this one being done in 5 or 6 games. James and the Cavs really seem to be on a mission.

    Cavs in 6. Hawks struggle on the road. Cavs thrive at home.

    Possible rust problem for Cavs in game 1, Atlanta can win at least one at home. Cavs in 6.

    Bibby is loooking very solid. Atlanta has the overall advantage in depth and skill level. Cleveland has the MVP King James.

    Cleveland wins this series in 6 games.

    Cavs in 5. Hawks won't get blown out but will just lack the quality to beat 'em
    yay, we're going back to the play-offs!

    Last nights game #1 was a bit lackluster - seemed more like a good regular season game than a second round playoff game. Hawks are a maddening team - so inconsistant

    Geez....the Cavs are on a mission to sit Lebron for the vast majority of the 4th QTR.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    Now a perfect 6-0 in the postseason, the Cavaliers tied a league record by winning their sixth consecutive playoff game by double digits. The only other team to do it was the 2004 Indiana Pacers.
    This made me sad. I hate how the Pacers aren't in the playoffs.

    By the way, I'd like to thank the Hawks along with Pistons for showing up to help the Cavs round into NBA finals-form.

    You gotta really be impressed the way Cleveland is playing. Of course the big news of it is how Lebron is playing, but he has a supportive cast of guys that are playing well too. I think if they keep this up they will run through any team.

    Get out the brooms. Again.

    At this rate, I expect the Cavs may sweep the ECF, as well.

    Yeah, I think once Garnett got hurt, Cleveland was basically guaranteed the EC crown.

    I think it'll be good to lose a game to Orlando or Boston, however, because they are not sweeping the Lakers or Nuggets (if the Nugs beat the Lakers).
