Hawks (5) Vs Bulls (1) - SemiFinals Preview - Nba Playoffs 2011

The NBA Playoffs begin tomorrow. Let's take a look at the four matchups in this season's Eastern Conference Quarterfinals.

#1 Chicago Bulls vs #8 Philadelphia 76ers. Since Derrick Rose is not at 100%, this series will be very close. However, the Sixers may not be able to capitalize because they have tuned out head coach Doug Collins.

Pick: Bulls in seven.

#2 Miami Heat vs #7 New York Knicks. This series will be the marquee matchup of the first round of the NBA Playoffs. The defense of the Heat should give allow for them to win the series.

Pick: Heat in six.

#3 Indiana Pacers vs #6 Orlando Magic. With Dwight Howard out, the Pacers will have a tougher time of eliminating the Magic. This series will be decided upon how the Magic shoots throughout this series.

Pick: Pacers in six.

#4 Boston Celtics vs #5 Atlanta Hawks. Both teams renew their rivalry in the postseason. This series is a toss-up. However, Boston has the experience and the urgency that should place them over the top.

Pick: Celtics in six.
