Sacramento, despite playing in what is generally acknowledged as the NBA's noisiest arena, was only 3-3 as a home favorite in 2004 and is only 11-13 in that role the last eight years (a notable 4-1 as a home dog, however).
As the playoffs feature more defense and tension in subsequent rounds, the 'overs' vs. 'unders' have gone only 38-43-1 the last two years.

Tim Duncan is back from his ankle injury, Manu Ginobili is playing like a mad man as usual and with Bruce Bowen's ol' west style of defense, i still expect the Spurs to move on to the second round, but this will be a very interesting match up.

As it can be seen, our simulation gives the Miami Heat the greatest probability to win the NBA Championship, with a likelyhood of 30%, this is closely followed by their Eastern Confrence nemisis the Detroit Pistons at a 20% likelyhood of winning the NBA title.
And if I were a betting man, I wouldn't be putting my money on the Sixers or the Nuggets to pull of the upset on the Pistons or Spurs respectively, as each of them has only a 10% chance of advancing to the second round.

 2005 NBA Second Round Playoff Preview: Detroit versus Indiana and Phoenix versus Dallas
All of that will be pushed to the side in favor of endless rehashing of the incident that occurred last November 19 at Auburn Hills, when fans threw objects on the court and Pacer forward Ron Artest bolted into the stands, soon followed by his teammate Stephen Jackson.
The ensuing mayhem resulted in NBA Commissioner David Stern suspending Artest for the rest of the season, handing out lengthy suspensions to Jackson and Pacers' star power forward Jermaine O'Neal and shorter suspensions for several other Pacers and Pistons.
Other than increased security at the games, the main direct impact that this will have on the upcoming playoff series will be the absence of Artest, a vital player for the Pacers on offense and defense.

Spurs and kings are playoff tested and won't go down easily, plus they're tough to beat at home.
I say this because the Spur team of last year and the Pacers of last year were very similiar on paper, and we all know that the Pacers gave D-town their toughest test in last year's playoffs.
It'll be a good playoff atmosphere this year because there's no hands-down juggernaut expected to run the table.
