2011 NBA Playoffs Round 1: Lakers vs Hornets preview
 
The Los Angeles Lakers face the New Orleans Hornets in the first round of the 2011 NBA Playoffs.

Discuss the matchup! Strengths of each team, weaknesses, and don't just predict the outcome -- EXPLAIN WHY!

We really don't need to discuss this match up. Its like a bye week. Bynum barnes blake can rest and shannon brown will do all the work.

So the popular question here. Should LA limit Bynum's minutes in this series?

Hoping its Lakers in 4 and Bynum gets to rest/play limited minutes. But with the way they played to end the season, this might go 6 :banghead:

This is the biggest reason why NOH will win. Fisher won't be able to stop them, and having Blake sick just makes it tougher on the Lakers.

Unless Okafor is gonna go prime Shaq along with that, a couple point guards going off isn't going to be enough.

Fisher can't stop any PG, but that hasn't stopped the Lakers from winning the past two years.

Except Fisher is even older and has even less help backing him up, while Paul has more help backing him up than he did in the past.

Chris Paul will naturally light us up as we have no PG defense, and Carl Landry has career nights on the regular against us.

NO will take at least one, imo.

eh Fish actually stepped his game up last year in the playoffs, and how does paul have more help at backup PG. I rather face Jarret than ****ing Collison
