Our NBA experts reveal their picks for the second round of the 2013 NBA playoffs.

Beneath each pick, you'll find our Confidence Meter, which reflects how confident we are in each prediction for the number of games it will take to win a series (not in the projected winner).

So, for instance, while Matt Moore may be 99 percent sure the Heat will win their series overall, he's only 50 percent confident it will take five games for Miami to win.
