Out of the Blue

When the Knicks started losing playoff games to the Celtics after going up 3-0 in their series, I was able to take some comfort from history: No NBA team has ever overcome such a deficit to win a seven game playoff, and sure enough, the Celts were not able to complete their run, which certainly showed a lot of championship heart. Now I have to start rooting against history after they lost game one in their series against the Pacers, as the Knicks have never won a playoff series after losing the home opener. And the last time they lost game one at home was also against the Pacers back in 1995. At least the Pacers don't still have Reggie Miller, though I'm pretty sure the Knick killer would still be able to put up 20 points per game against the Knickerbockers at age 47, so thankfully he's decided to take it easy these days.

Heat have to beat the odds now, teams winning the first away game have won the series most of the time. That said, I don't expect the Bulls to win the series.

Well taking game 1 with no Deng, No Rose, No Hinrich is a pretty big statement. I'm guessing this is the year that Spolestra finally gets the boot and people see just what a non factor he is and always has been.

It's funny that the Heat really didn't start playing as well as they have been the past year until they started using a system in which Spoelstra basically has no say in what happens on the floor.

That said, I think the Heat suffered a bit from their week off (2 points for Lebron in the first half? 14 for Wade overall? Yeah, I'd call them a bit rusty. ) and probably were a little too cocky. I still don't give the Bulls much of a chance without Rose.
