From Monday’s espn.com Around the Rim: =)

I’m tired of hearing that the championship will automatically go to
the team that wins the West. Despite a weak performance in Game 3 of
round 2, the Bucks have still proven that they can play excellent
defense, and don’t forget, they were undefeated against the Spurs and
Lakers. The simple fact is, the Spurs are weakened without Anderson
and with the exception of Kobe, the Lakers are not a great team.

Bucks in 6 over Charlotte, in 5 over Toronto, and in 4 over L.A.
