Friday Night Quick Hits

• Given that it is NBA playoff time, I should make some predictions. I already said yesterday that I think it’s going to be Cavs-Spurs in the finals. Here’s the rest of my picks:

• Pistons over Magic in 5 games
• Cavs over Wizards in 5 games
• Raptors over Nets in 6 games
• Heat over Bulls in 6 games
• Mavericks over Warriors in 5 games
• Suns over Lakers in 5 games
• Spurs over Nuggets in 5 games
• Rockets over Jazz in 7 games

If that plays out, I think it’ll be Heat-Cavs in the East Finals and Spurs-Mavs in the West Finals.

• I saw the sun today. It’s been a long time since anyone in Connecticut could say that. The weather finally feels like spring, which means we’re probably a couple weeks away from me having to take the cover off my air conditioner (as an aside, I almost never have to turn the heat on in the winter, thanks to the warm air pushed out by the computers in my living room).
