As expected, Knicks bounced back. And trashed the Pacers in doing so.
As others expected, Grizzlies continued to handle the Thunder and got a win to show for it.
Both series are tied 1-1. Now what?
Some of them will argue that the lower seeds now have the home court advantage by stealing one on the road. If they believe that strongly, they may go ahead and pick a Knick or a Thunder.
Some of us will argue that home court is irrelevant in the playoffs. I tend to agree for Games 1 to 6. I disagree on Game 7, where it is extremely rare for visitors to win.
Some of you will argue that the tied series just mean that the series are now reduced to best-of-5. And that everyone can stick to their favoured team.
Some of them, especially in Drive To The Finals, will try to balance the risk by picking on the team they have least picked; and that whoever advances to the next round will have roughly the same players left as the one that did not advance.
Some of us, especially in 1-N-Done where points multipliers are applied, will play it safe by picking a third-string player and then wait and see what happens.
Some of you will take advantage of this time to give false suggestions just so as to mislead others so you can overtake them.
Some of them want to confuse you. Some of them want to get confused by you. Sweet picks are made of these. Who am I to disagree? Travel the blogs and the seven beats. Everybody's looking for something.
I have an idea who to pick and why, but I want to hear your arguments before I pick for May 11. You may even convince me.
Movin' on. Movin' on. Movin' on. Movin' on.
