Re: 2011 NBA Playoffs Round 1: Mavericks vs Trail Blazers
Dallas has declined the 2nd half of the season. They really miss Caron and Peja is not your answer. Dirk is a tough matchup at the pf, but that is over a typical pf, Aldridge is not your typical pf. He is quick and a long extension, which can easily get that hand up on dirk with his fadeways. I think it really comes down to the bench and coaching. Nate really isnt a great gametime coach. If his pre game strategies does not work, he is known to fail on switching it up during games. I still think It will be 4-3 portland with Roy and Batum coming off the bench. Batum can easily guard Jason Terry. Without Terry having huge game and lock down on dirk, this series is over.
