The Bulls inability to put away Atlanta has
turned their series into a best-of-three affair.
Up 2-1, the Grizzlies are in a great position right now to
advance to the conference finals. A win on Monday would be a huge step to
making that happen. However Memphis will have to get past Durant and crew at
the Fedex Forum.
Once again the Lakers have dropped the first game of the NBA
playoff series but look for them to take care of business in Game 2 at home.
Despite the big number on the betting odds board I fully expect Kobe and crew
The pressure will be squarely on Chicago tonight

no guarantee that the 2011-2012 NBA season will start on time. If it does, that
means the clock is ticking for the New Jersey Nets who have one season to
