Perfect! 8-0, on play-off picks.

Saturday night special, the Mavs just finished their 40 point rout of the Rockets, and earlier the Pacers knocked off the Celtics. That makes My Opinion on Sports a perfect 8-0 on play-off picks.

Let's take a quick look at the second round match-ups.

Miami Heat vs Washington Wizards
The Wizards are just over matched here. They have had a great run, returning to the play-offs, and advancing for the first time since before many of the current players were born. This is the only mismatch of the second round. Look for the Heat to wrap it up quickly. Don't want to call a sweep here, but it could easily be 4-1.

Indiana Pacers vs Detroit Pistons
Let's get ready to ruuuuummmmmbbblle! Unfortunately this series will be overshadowed by what happened between these two teams in November. It should be an entertaining series, but expect less drama, and expect Detroit to move on to face Miami in the Eastern Conference Finals.

No upsets in the East. Let's move to the West.

Seattle Sonics verse San Antonio Spurs
Let's say it right here, UPSET ALERT! The Sonics had a great series against the Nuggets and the Spurs have been known to fall asleep. Look for this series to go at least six games and look for the Sonics to move on.

Dallas Mavericks verse Phoenix Suns
This is going to be a great series! Look for it to go seven and look for the scores to be in the 100's. The Suns will be able to wear down the Mavericks and advance to place Seattle in the Western Conference Finals.
