Pundits' Take on Nets-Heat Divided

The basketball pundits are divided. After a first round in which every favorite won, national basketball writers are uncertain if the Nets can be the first underdog to win in the second. ESPN's braintrust tilts towards the Nets. AP Basketball writer Brian Mahoney does too. Brendan McGovern of About.com agrees and even picks RJ for MVP. Steve Kerr of TNT likes Miami, as does Michael Ventre of NBC and Tony Mejia of CBS, who predicted a Pacers upset. There'll be more Monday.
