Breaking Down Every 2013 NBA Playoff 2nd-Round Series

Eight teams gone, eight teams left and four spots open to advance into the conference finals of the NBA playoffs. We're zipping right along in an extremely exciting postseason to this point.

So far, we've seen the Chicago Bulls overcome some Old Testament-style plagues, the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs sweep with few issues, the Indiana Pacers and Memphis Grizzlies fight their way to an ugly series victory, the Oklahoma City Thunder move on without an All-Star, the New York Knicks stumble into four wins and the Golden State Warriors emerge as the only real upset.

The second round that remains at our fingertips looks to be a thriller—four series with the capability of going the distance.

Few sure things remain at this point, and any remaining team could full well make it into the next round, regardless of how surprising it would be.

There are some definite favorites, but any upset would only be a fleeting surprise before becoming an exposition of weakness.

In anticipation (and a bit of reaction with what we've seen so far), it's time to take a flip through all four series that remain and break each one down.
