Mavs (51-31) # 7 seed vs Hornets (56-26) # 2 seed

Match Ups

PG- Kidd vs Paul
Advantage Paul because he has more chance to take over the game. Also he uses a good defender on his team which distracts them from Peja or David West who can hit the jumper

Advantage- Paul
http://sportsmedia.ign.com/sports/image/article/703/703785/top-20-players-in-the-nba-20060428032925044.jpg

SG- Stackhouse vs Mo Pete
Both players are good but are good at different things. Both can be somewhat unconsistent or wild. Although Mo Pete does have the Outside shot all give this one a tie

TIE
:party:

SF- Howard vs Peja
This is a thoughone but Howard has a better ability to put large numbers in the points column and grab more rebounds. Peja has a better outside shot but it goes to Howard

Advantage- Howard

PF- Dirk vs West
This was very tough for me because both were allstars. David West has a much more solid game in defence and in rebounding. Dirk has a good postup and a deadly 3-point shot.

Advantage- Dirkhttp://msnbcmedia1.msn.com/j/msnbc/Components/Photos/070112/070112_nowitzki_vmed_8p.widec.jpg


C- Dampier vs Chandler
This one was very easy for me. Considering Chandlers tough defense and power moves to the basket

Great Advantage- Chandlerhttp://i.a.cnn.net/si/2007/writers/chris_mannix/04/11/chandler/p1.tyson.jpg

Benches-are split. although Dallas has posible 6th man of the year thats about all they have. The Hornets have some solid players such as Pargo and Wells. TIE

Dallas in 6. There is too much responsibility on Paul for his first year of playoffs, he's going to get worn out.

jasonterry

Nah i dont think so

west doesn't command double teams, Dirk does. West isn't as good on defense, not as good a passer, not as good facing up, not as good posting up, not as good shooting..there's nothing he is better at than Nowitzki.

and you're underestimating Dampier pretty badly too.

David West is just another dime-a-dozen PF and nowhere close to Dirk.

It is a complete joke that you say, "very slight advantage."

Dirk has a HUGE advantage to David West. Not even close.

RidonKs
04-18-2008, 03:02 PM
I think we can settle with the difference between Kidd and Paul being pretty close to the difference between Dirk and West. West isn't another dime a dozen PF, but he sure as hell isn't on Dirk's level.

KokeAyne
04-18-2008, 03:24 PM
How can you even compare West and Nowitzki? You take Dirk at 80% over West any day of the week.

Chandler is highly overrated this season. All you ever see him do is put in alleys or put backs he is a product of CP3s game.

Benches are split? Hornets have one of the weakest benches out of all the play off teams besides Bonzi Wells their bench is pretty weak...While the Mavs have ummm lets see- Jason Terry, Brandon Bass, and then they have some solid role players in George, Jones, Allen and Lue.

JeT and Bass alone > Hornets bench.

Yeah maybe but I didnt start the thread trying to break down everything evenly for everyone to discuss :rolleyes:

If I had broken down everything I wouldnt have sounded half as biased as I did in my post since I only listed things that I didnt agre with....besides which points were biased? You dont think Nowitzki is better than West and not just slightly? You dont think Dallas has a better bench?

The Chandler thing has nothing to do with my bias towards the Mavs...I would have said he was overrated if the Hornets were playing the Nuggets as well.

If I were the mavs I'd want the Hornets too, but here's a funny quote from Chandler's blog:

It's comical to me that they wanted to play us. First of all, it's comical to me that you're scared of a team, and say that you don't want to play them.

But it reminds me of when I was little. I begged for the My Buddy doll, begged for the My Buddy doll. I kept asking, "Ma, get me the My Buddy. Ma, get me the My Buddy." But my mom couldn't really afford it, so she couldn't get it for me at that time.

So, I kept at it. "Ma, get me a My Buddy. Every other kid got a My Buddy. Mom, I never get anything!" Just making my mom feel bad.

So, my uncle told my mom, "I'll fix this." I didn't know my uncle told my mom that, but he came over with this video and pops it in the machine. I'm like, "Ah, My Buddy!" And it turns out it was the Chucky movie.

All the next week, I'm telling my mom, "Please, don't get me My Buddy. Please, don't get me My Buddy."

So sometimes, what you think you really want, you don't really want. The Mavericks think they want us, and they asked for us, and we ain't gonna be My Buddy. They're gonna get Chucky.

Paul is dialed in tonight. He might need to score 30 if West doesn't pick up the slack.

Mavs defense is decent so far. They should chill on doubling West for now though. Hornets got a bunch of open looks off of it but they missed.

Showtime
04-19-2008, 07:39 PM
I should have known. It's playoffs, which means Peja turns to sh!t.

Also, in my critique of the team, I noted that since West likes to face up and not try to establish position and work in the low block, that it eliminates a low post scoring presence that demands a double. And what is happening? The hornets' offense is comprised of all jump shots. That isn't experience, it's just how the team plays, and as I said, that style isn't going to be successful in the playoffs.

Also, Paul needs to look for his offense more and establish that he's a threat instead of differing so much to his teammates. He needs to attack, break down the defense and create from there instead of hanging on the perimeter and just playing the pick-n-roll. Make Kidd play defense.

Jason's said it himself, he's a playoff performer. He took on the last reg season game as a playoff game and dominated. And triple double number 1 of the postseason is coming up. I think he averaged a monster triple double vs Toronto last year without getting a single one in a game

leopoldstotch
04-19-2008, 08:20 PM
i agree with the above. this game does feel like a regular season game. maybe it's the teams? the motivation? the hype? the crowd? i don't know. i just have the feeling.

anyways, i don't have high hopes for the hornets advancing here. dallas has a lot of experience on the floor and off the bench, overmatching the hornets short bench. i do like to see the hornets making it far this year, but the reality is that it's not going to happen. reality bites.

Showtime
04-19-2008, 08:24 PM
This game has nothing to do with experience. The hornets style of jumpshooting, and the tendency of CP to pass rather than attack is killing their offense (that and their weak bench), and this has been a problem ALL SEASON LONG, so it's not playoff experience that's the problem. Paul needs to realize that he is actually hurting his team by not attacking. If the defense is always playing the pass, and not worrying about Paul's penetration, then when Paul looks for his teammates, the defense is getting what they are expecting. Paul needs to make himself a threat in order for his teammates to get open shots. If Paul doesn't attack, this team loses. It's really that simple.

When your leader is a hothead..it carries on to the rest of your team. Thats a reflection of bad leadership

I agree he is a bit of a hot head, he threw another bow at Damp. But I don't see too much wrong with it, unless he decides to hit another guy in the nuts like he did in college.

Mavs are in trouble. This game could be over by the 3rd quarter if they don't step their defense up. They are a running team. Half court offense is garbage, they are not winning like that. If NO doesn't miss, Dallas can't run and their offense is reduced to isolations.

it's almost like he's playing the game in slow motion, he checks to see if the oop is available, and if it's not he just sinks the one handed floater. sometimes i can't tell whether he's going to shoot or pass, that might be why he's able to get the shot off so easily.
