    My interest level is next to zero but Dallas is the only one of the four left that I'd cheer for. I don't like GSW (they are the only NBA team I can remember that I lost respect for when they started winning) and I hate all Boston teams. Completely ambivalent when it comes to Miami.

    I am actually all in on the NHL playoffs. Haven't watched hockey in close to 20 years but the playoffs have been way more entertaining than the NBA.
    Totally agree on the NHL. They've done an amazing job on creating parity in the league and it makes for a way more enjoyable product.

    I'm all in on Mavericks now. That's who I want to win. Mavs vs Miami would be ideal finals. Let Lowry get his swan song and Luka take over as best player in the game.

    Not sure about that cause Dallas' defence is pretty damn good and was right in line with Miami all season. Outside of game 5, once the series went back to Dallas in game 3, the Mavs controlled, and for long stretches dominated, the Suns offence. They did the same to Utah after the first couple games.

    Miami-Boston could be interesting. If Lowry was 100% I'd go with the Heat but it feels like a long, close series to me in any case.
    Teams like Dallas, with no elite defensive players and an obvious weak link (Luka) playing elite defense all season long, and now into the playoffs... are why I continue to question Nurse's over-aggressive defensive schemes.

    Should be a fun, high scoring series.

    Whomever comes out of the West will be facing either Boston or Miami which will be better defensively than any team they've faced out West. Classic offense vs. defense match up in the finals.
