Trash Talk: Volume XIX

Hi, all. What a week it’s been. We’re finally done with the first round, which included two game sevens, a pair of sweeps and enough exciting moments to fill a whole postseason. Since we last met, the Nets hit the road, the Baby Bulls were bounced and the surprising Celtics went fishing. Out west, T-Mac went home early yet again, Phoenix made the Grizzlies’ summer a little longer, Seattle dealt with Sacramento and my Nuggets succumbed to the Spurs. If that sounds hectic, it’s because it was.

That leaves us with some very interesting match-ups. Let’s take a look at the second round.
