Rod Thorn is a fine poker player, keeping his cards close to his chest...as it turns out, even in playoff predictions. The Nets website asked him, Chris Carrino and Tim Capstraw for their predictions. Carrino and Capstraw called each series. Not Thorn. He offers only hints at who'll win. "Chicago will be a pretty tough matchup for Boston", he notes...and "I think Portland’s on a real roll here". So far, he's even.
