Were done with the "first season" and 14 teams clear their lockers out today and hit the golf course with eight more to follow in the next two weeks after the first round of the playoffs. Luke Falk Jersey . Im very excited about the playoffs, particularly in the Western Conference with amazing match-ups, as well as the wonderful local story in the Toronto Raptors. It should be a blast. Here are my predictions, but based upon my lousy prognostications during the NCAA Tournament, you might be better off going the other way on some of mine - particularly with the Raptors, who I hope and pray are able to win an incredibly difficult match-up. EASTERN CONFERENCE: 1. Indiana Pacers vs. 8. Atlanta Hawks: Though theyre struggling, their superior size and consistent defensive effort, as well as experience, will carry the Pacers through in an ugly series. Pacers in five. 2. Miami Heat vs. 7. Charlotte Bobcats: Al Jefferson will be an absolute load for the weak Heat interior defense and the Bobcats are playing with great confidence and togetherness. At the end of the day, though, if the Heat Big Three are healthy and right, theyll find a way as they go along to get into the next playoff gear and slowly, yet effectively, wear down the younger Bobcats. Heat in six. 3. Toronto Raptors vs. 6. Brooklyn Nets: I want to be SO wrong on this Pick. I have confidence that the Raptors can not only compete with the Nets in each and every game of this series. but beat them four times, yet my belief without any sort of emotion is that the Nets superior depth, experience and ability to get this done in the playoff-style five-on-five game will be a significant challenge for the Raps. The Raptors will have to earn every whistle against a team filled with personalities like KG, Paul Pierce, coach Jason Kidd, Deron Williams and Joe Johnson who can be squeaky wheels demanding the grease and get their way often to get over the hump. The Raptors have to outplay, outwork, out hustle, out execute, out defend, out rebound and outcoach them to win this series. Can it be done? Sure, absolutely, but that has to be the mindset. Be sharper, be better, be hungrier.  The Nets wanted this matchup because they respect the Raps a whole lot less than they do the Bulls. Why is that? The Bulls compete like crazy on each and every possession and there is no backing down. The Raptors must have the same level of effort and passion throughout that the team the Nets didnt want to face brings and that has to be habit.  Ive seen the Raptors do this enough times to know that theyre more than capable of doing it and now its time to make that commitment and ultimate sacrifice that it takes to beat a very deep, talented and experienced opponent. Can they sustain the level of effort its going to take to win it, as well as keep their heads and play that much harder and better when calls dont work out in their favor? Thats a major challenge and Im excited to see them face these obstacles and perform on the bigger stage to succeed. Nets in seven. 4. Chicago Bulls vs. 5. Washington Wizards: Bulls in 7. The grind-it-out Bulls versus the up-and-down, shoot-the-three Wizards. The Wizards bigs in Marcin Gortat and a healthy Nene are playing well, which is huge. John Wall is a load to deal with and they can light it up on the perimeter and veteran depth has been improved with Drew Gooden, Al Harrington and Andre Miller. They can take this series if they dig in and play with increased toughness. I still like the Bulls, they set the tone and make you play their style and slow the pace. The level of physical play and the type of whistle could well determine the winner here. The slow and ugly Bulls and the quick and offensive Wizards. The Bulls by a nose in what should be a fun series. Bulls in seven. WESTERN CONFERENCE: 1. San Antonio Spurs vs. 8. Dallas Mavericks: Theres just too much depth and outstanding offensive ball movement. in what should be a fast paced and entertaining series. I like the Spurs depth here. Monta Ellis will be a tough cover for the Spurs, but their team approach will help. Theyll keep fresh defenders on Dirk and defend the pick-and-pop game well enough to survive. Spurs in six. 2. Oklahoma City Thunder vs. 7. Memphis Grizzlies: This will be a great, physical series. Z-Bo and Gasol will be a load to deal with for the Thunder. The Grizzlies have a knack for playing on a high level in these type of games. Tony Allen and Tyshaun Prince are good perimeter defenders and will be tested here. Kevin Durant has had an MVP-calibre season and I love his big shot-making ability. The Thunder are getting healthier and the brilliant home fans in OKC will make a huge difference. The Pace of play will be a factor and I like the Thunders flexibility to play and win multiple ways. Thunder in seven. 3. Los Angeles Clippers vs. 6. Golden State Warriors: Andrew Boguts condition is a concern for the Warriors, yet the fact that they can play a quicker and smaller pace can be a challenge for the bigger Clippers. The Splash Brothers (Curry and Thompson) are a dynamic backcourt and can win a few games on their own and might have to. The concerns with the late game reliability of DeAndre Jordans free throw shooting will be a neat story to watch and see how Doc Rivers handles this. I look at Jamal Crawford as the X-Factor for the Clips - hes the top-notch offensive answer to the high octane Warrior attack. I just find the Clippers more consistent and better in many respects with their approach so Ill go with them here. Clippers in six. 4. Houston Rockets vs. 5. Portland Trail Blazers: My head tells me the Rockets and yet I want to give my heart a legit say here, as well. I just like the Blazers and the energy they play with. I admire their resiliency and they share the ball exceptionally well. LaMarcus Aldridge is a gifted post player who attracts the double team and the Blazers three-point shooting is so reliant on playing in/out of the post. James Harden is the guy in the series who is the toughest to stop and Chandler Parsons is a major improving talent and they play beautifully off of Dwight Howard. Im curious to see how young point guard Damian Lillard  handles himself under the pressure of the playoffs, as well as if Patrick Beverly is ready to go for the Rockets.  I look at momentum and emotion being huge factors, as well as streaky play and if the Blazers get hot from three-ball land, they can pull the upset. Portland is one of my favorite basketball towns so what the heck? Blazers. Blazers in seven. Harold Landry Jersey . In the opener of the World Group first-round series, world No. 18 Kei Nishikori defeated Peter Polansky of Thornhill, Ont. Malcolm Butler Jersey .com) - The Toronto Raptors set their sights on a second straight victory with the Oklahoma City Thunder visiting the Air Canada Centre tonight riding a two game streak of their own. http://www.titansauthenticofficialonline.com/authentic-xavier-sua-filo-jersey.html . - Maxence Parrot of Bromont, Que.The Vancouver Canucks (27-17-3) open the February portion of their schedule with their first meeting of the season against the Minnesota Wild (22-20-6). These teams will see plenty of each other in the next few weeks as three of the Canucks next nine games are against the Wild (after today they meet February 9th in Minnesota and again February 16th at Rogers Arena). New defenceman Adam Clendening is expected to make his Canucks debut today. He arrived in town Friday night and practiced with the Canucks yesterday paired with Luca Sbisa and saw time on the point on the second unit power play along with Dan Hamhuis. It appears Clendening will replace Yannick Weber. If that’s the case, the Canucks will have their youngest blueline of the season (Chris Tanev turned 25 in December, Sbisa turned 25 on Friday, Clendening 22 & Corrado 21). Derek Dorsett practiced with the Canucks yesterday for the first time since leaving Tuesday’s game against Anaheim after a collision with Ryan Kesler. The hard-nosed winger is a possibility to return to the line-up today. Five different Canucks scored in Friday’s 5-2 win over Buffalo. It was the first time the Canucks have scored more than four goals in a game since a 7-1 romp over Arizona on December 22nd. Nick Bonino scored the game winner on a second period power play. The goal was his team-leading fifth game winner of the season, but just his first power play goal as a Canuck. The Canucks scored an empty net goal on Friday and were also assessed a too-many men on the ice penalty. In both cases, that marked the 11th time this season they have hit the scoresheet in such fashion – the Canucks lead the league in both categories. There is no word on who will start in goal for the Canucks todaay. Luke Stocker Titans Jersey. Ryan Miller has started the team’s last six games. Miller is 4-3 lifetime against the Wild while Eddie Lack is 1-0-1 with both games coming after the Olympic break last season. The Canucks and the Wild are two of three teams in the NHL this season with leading point-getters who are in single digits in goals (Daniel & Henrik Sedin 9+31=40 & Jason Pominville 9+29=38). Arizona’s Keith Yandle is the other. The Wild are here off a 1-0 win in Calgary on Thursday. Devan Dubnyk stopped 30 shots for the shutout and Zach Parise’s team-leading 20th goal of the season in the first period stood up as the winner. The Wild have won both of their games since the All-Star break giving up just one goal in the process. They are 4-1-1 in their past six games which follows a stretch in which they won just 2 of their previous 14 games (2-8-4). Dubnyk has started six straight games since being acquired from Arizona in mid-January. He’s 4-1 with the Wild with 2 shutouts a 1.66 GAA and a 93.1 save percentage. Dubnyk made 35 saves and blanked the Canucks 5-0 while with Arizona on November 14th at Rogers Arena. He also allowed three goals in relief duty in a 7-1 loss to the Canucks on December 22nd. The league’s ice-time leader Ryan Suter (average 29:29 a night) did not practice yesterday and is questionable with a lower body injury. Suter has just one goal on 94 shots this season (shooting percentage of 1.1%). Winger Justin Fontaine (groin) will not play today. Former Canuck Keith Ballard has been out since December 10th with a concussion and facial injuries. The Wild is 26th in the NHL on the power play (15.4%) and 28th in the league on the road (11.4%) scoring nine of its 25 PPG this season away from home.
