With the first round done with in many things going home we look towards the semi-finals. The first few teams that have made the playoff head either growing series in the west or relatively easy series in the east that's a few easy ones sprinkled throughout both conferences. Let us look at those things as we look forward to the second round of the playoffs.
The East bracket.
The top bracket is the 8-seeded Heat versus the five seeded Knicks.
Heat lead 3-2
The second bracket out east is the three seeded 76ers versus the two-seeded Celtics.
Series tied 3-3
The West bracket
The one seeded nuggets versus the four seeded Suns.
Nuggets won 4-2
The second bracket in the west is the seventh seeded Lakers versus the 6 seeded Warriors.
Lakers lead 3-2
My predictions for each round is this

76ers in 7
Nuggets in 6
Lakers in 6
