2012 NBA PLAYOFF SEMI FINALS PREDICTIONS

Mr Main Event NBA Semi Finals Predictions



Lakers vs Thunder

Lakers in 6
This will be a very competitive for Kobe Bryant and his Lakers. The Oklahoma City Thunder are a young team who have been one of the odds on favorite to win the NBA championship. A year ago they reached the conference finals only to lose to the eventual NBA Champion Dallas Mavericks. The Thunder would gain revenge this sweeping the mavericks out of the first round. Speaking of Vengence, they will also look to payback Metta World Peace who injured James Harden in the teams last meeting with the Lakers after World Peace blindly elbowed Harden to the temple. The Thunder who posses home court advantage won the season series 2-1. With Kobe Bryant more focused than ever for a sixth ring the Lakers will prove that the veterans are not too old to add a 17th banner in the Staples Center. 

Spurs vs Clippers

Since the duo of the Blake Griffin and Chris Paul the Los Angeles Clippers have been the most exciting team in the NBA to watch. on the other hand, there is the San Antonio Spurs who perhaps are the most boring team but they know how to win hence why they are the first seed. Every year fans say they are getting old but like wine they get better with age. During the regular season, the Spurs won the series 2-1. While an all Los Angeles conference finals would be interesting Chris Paul will need more of his team mates to step up of they are going win this series. Look for the Spurs to win this in six. 

Celtics vs 76ers   Celtics in 5

At the beginning of the season, the 76ers were among the best teams in the NBA. At the mid Way point of the season the team lost momentum and therefore barely making the playoffs. As the bulls were hammered with injuries the 76ers found new life and would go on to win the series. Now they are faced with a veteran team who is looking for one more championship. Not to mention they are lead by an awesome young point guard in Rajan Rondo. This series will be over in 5

Heat vs Pacers. Heat in 6
Last year the Heat nearly breezed through the playoffs only to come within two games of winning an NBA championship after going up 2-0 .  This year they seem to be on the same path. However the Pacers are a team who can perhaps slow them down. With a guy like Roy Hibbert who can give Chris Bosh some work and a lot of role players who can score this series will not be as easy as they think.
