Cavs vs. Nets baybee. Should be a helluva series. Glad the Cavaliers are back in action Sunday.....and finally some intense games.

Anyone else think the Nets steal game 1? Cavs have been off, for all intents and purposes, since the beginning of the playoffs. Just seems like a game the Nets can steal. I hope not, but we'll see.

Dude, I think MANY will predict a Nets win in Game 1. I think the layoff and not playing any worthy comp the past 3 weeks catches up to the Cavs in game one and opens their eyes. Cavs in 7.

Nets have 3 awesome players...Kidd averaging a triple double in the playoffs is sick...if Nenad Kristic did not go down for the year I would be real scared of this team

Cavaliers by 8 in game 1, LeBron goes off for 32-11-8.

Z gets 16-11.

Carter shoots the Nets right out of the game.

Should be a very good series.

The Cavs have to keep Kidd in check, and it will be interesting to see how they try and defend him. In past years, they've tried to use Snow, which has not worked. Im expecting alot of Larry on him.

Sasha needs to break out of his funk. We'll need points from him and he'll be checking Vince alot.

Like against Washington, the Cavs offensive rebounding prowess should hopefully be a factor in this one. The Cavs simply have more talented bigs than Jersey ... who really only plays three players considered 4s or 5s.

Jerseys bench is weak, and the Cavs should also have an advantage when the two youngest coaches in the NBA start to go to their benches late in the first and third quarter.

The Cavs don't HAVE to win games one and two at home, but it sure would be nice. The Nets have won 9 straight at Continental Airlines Arena, and home teams are 24-6 in the playoffs so far.

no nonsense from Z and Larry in games 1 and 2


Cavs take 2-0 lead winning both games by 6+ points

Interesting stat

According to Elias Sports Bureau, since the 1990 playoffs, teams with five days of rest playing teams with one day of rest have gone 21-7 in that series. The teams with the five days of rest are 98-61 in games played in those series. Also, the past 10 NBA champions have averaged 3.4 days off between the first and second rounds, while the runner-up averaged three days off between the first and second rounds.

I like the Cavs to come out with a fire we haven't seen this year.
They'll go up 2-0

I'd like to see that fire as well, let's hope the time off has not gotten them out of playoff fever.
