The 2008 NBA Playoffs officially began today. When round one was set there was one matchup that I did not want to hear. You guessed it, SUNS vs. Spurs. Who wants to play the Spurs in the first round?? Yikes. Anyways, today the Suns got their chance to take a jump on the series by winning game 1. From the get go, it looked really good for them. They were up the entire game until the end of the 4th quarter when the Spurs tied it up to go into overtime. Then in overtime the Suns had a chance to win until the unlikeliest thing happened...the boring Tim Duncan hit his 1st, I repeat 1st 3-pointer of the year, to send the game into double overtime. I was on the edge of my seat. In the 2nd OT, the Suns just could not get it done allowing the Spurs to take a 1-0 lead in the series (117-115). I have my bracket set and I predict that this series will go 7 games with the Suns winning and ultimately brining the NBA National Championship to the Desert!!
