Our CBSSports.com expert picks leaderboard and predictions for the second round.

Posted by EOB staff. 

After one of the best first-rounds ever, here's where we stand, prior to Friday night's Grizzlies-Spurs game, which is irrelevant, since none of us picked the Grizzlies, because we're not prescient or insane, and no one even thought they'd make it to a seventh game. 

Expert Scores
Expert Right Wrong Bonus Total
Matt Moore 6 2 2 14

Jamey Eisenberg 6 2 1 13
Ken Berger 6 2 0 12

Royce Young 5 3 2 12


And here's our picks for the Conference Semifinals in the East. We'll have full predictions later.

Boozer can get hurt.

For all i care, he can sit this whole series and be healthy ready to go for the next round. We still have Big Sexy (Kurt Thomas) and Taj Gibson who can start for him. Do remember what was the Bulls record in the beginning of the season without Carlos Boozer? As far as i know BULLS can still WIN without him. GO BULLS!!

I love when people get angry over experts not picking there team. I am a huge Bulls fan and i enjoy seeing these "so called' experts picking them. It means absolutely nothing. I am taking the Bulls in 6. The Heat in 7 after what i saw from them today. Their predictions are no different then mine. No need to worry if the experts didnt pick your team. at least your team has some bulletin board material to work with.

You would think that the Bulls have Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen based on the steamroll projections everyone is giving them over the Hawks.

Bulls in 5; Celtics in 6.  Then Bulls in 6.  'Nuff said.

Just because the Bulls won 5/6 during the regular season doesn't mean squat.  This is the playoffs and Atlanta just came off of beating Orlando looking very impressive.  Joe Johnson can get hot, Josh Smith can dominate defensively and on the boards and Boozer can get hurt.  Lot's can happen.  The Bulls have a great chance to win the series but regular season doesn't mean much, just ask the Spurs.

GO AWAY "EXPERTS"!!! You all picked chalk in the first round in EVERY series! It takes ZERO basketball knowledge to make picks like that! I don't care if you think you had reasons for the picks, you took the Obama route. Look how that turned out for him! Seriously, stop making picks, everybody is laughing at you.
