Cavs again.

Cavs over Pacers...
Cavs Sweep Raps...
Cavs over Celtics...
Cavs vs Warriors.

Where have we seen this before?

Yeah. Embiid thinks he is as good as LeBron and collectors think Simmons is as good as LeBron. LBJ will remind us all that they are wrong. Cavs in 6. It will be more competitive than some people are expecting though.

P.S. I refuse to post in the other ECF thread as it was created before round 2 was finalized.

if the cavs lose two games in this series, its because Bron is tired

Bron needs to drive to the hoop 45 times per game

Brown, Smart and Morris can slow down LeBron better than any other team he has faced during the 2018 playoffs. Horford vs Love and Baynes ya Thompson will be a push. It will be about Tatum he the test of the Cavs.

I am a Lebron fan and would love to see the Cavs maje it to the Finals again, but when looking at match ups in a best of seven series, unless lebron had 40 point triple doubles every game, I think they probably would lose to all of these teams!

Cavs in 6 (being generous).

The overachieving stops here.

Bron won't be tired. He'll have several good days to rest. Celtics won't know what hit them.

As long as the supporting cast keeps clicking like they are, I’m not seeing Boston getting more than 2 games. I want retribution for going all the way out to bean town and paying an astronomical amount of money to see the Cavs get plowed by 20 earlier this year.

They would have copped their loss to GS in the 2nd round.

Time to change the seeding format.


I think Boston can be competitive, but ultimately will struggle overall.

4-1 Cavs

I must be the only one thinking that the Celtics have the upper hand in this.

Unless Kendrick Perkins puts on a jersey and gets some floor time; Celtics in 6

Cavs in 6, Game 1 is so important again...the Pacers rolled the Cavs cause they weren't ready but Toronto squandered their chance at it. LeBron usually turns it up much higher for must win type games so you have to win the early ones. I think Boston will be better than Toronto but LeBron is still too much for them at this point.

This Celtics team is gonna put up a battle they’re young, skilled, and very fast paced. Will be a closer series than many might think.

I'm going with Celtics in 7. Home team wins every game.

Will be a great series. Either team winning wouldn't surprise me short of a sweep.

It's pretty incredible that the Celts seem as strong as they do without Kyrie and Gordon.

Really depends. The Cavs wouldn’t have had the opportunity to find their footing against someone like GS, Houston, or even Utah and the Pelicans in the first round. However, now that things are clicking, I see the Cavs giving GS or the Rockets a legit series. As a Cavs fan, the east is weaker and I know it, but now that they’ve figured things out, anything can happen.
