NBA playoffs well underway? : Wow, I must have slept longer than I thought last night. According to NBA.com, the Celtics beat the Hornets 3-0, the Nets are up 2 games to 1 over the Raptors, the Bucks are surprising the Pistons 2 to 1, and the Sixers are beating the Magic 2 to 1. Meanwhile, in the West, the Lakers swept the Blazers, the Kings are up on Utah 2 games to 1, the Sonics are upsetting the Spurs 2 to 1, and the Mavs have the Wolves under control -- also 2 to 1.

This has gotta be some kind of test content (and I'm sure it'll be gone by tomorrow) but someone's going to be very embarassed about letting it slip out onto the site. It's not quite self-consistent -- one of the sidebars shows Charlotte beating the Bucks 4-2 to face Detroit in the Eastern Finals. Funny.

Looks like it is a test of some sort...the links to each series just goes to the NBA home page.

I wish they would go ahead and post the results of the finals while they are at it.

That is awesome! And gone, no chance anyone grabbed a screenshot or a saved copy? The playoffs are fixed, to an extent. The refs don't absolutely decide the outcomes of the games, but I think they do what I can to keep some teams in a series for a couple of extra games.
