Who would be a better first round for us. Cleveland or Detroit? I wonder if the Nets can get their act together and possibly make a 6th seed(wishful thinking?) Washington would probably be ideal for us.
Easily the Cavs. Washington would be the best but Miami will end up finishing with the third seed. Detroit would just dominate. NJ could maybe take a couple of games against Cleveland and maybe even win the seires. They match-up fairly well with the cavs.
I'd much rather race Cleveland than Detroit, no question. Although Cleveland has been to the 2nd round, their core is still pretty young and they don't seem to be nearly as playoff ready as Detroit. Detroit plays as a team which is much harder to beat then a lot of good players on a team, too bad that is how we seem to be playing also.
Id really like to take who ever is in the higher seed out of Washington or Cleveland. Becuase I feel that we have the experience in the playoffs to beat either of those team and we also have the talent.
If im not mistaken won't the higher seed get to play the team that wins out of the 4 and the 5, which means a easier game then having to take on a team like the Pistons in the Second round. But I might be wrong.
I would love to take the heat second round becuase even if Wade is playing they are not going to be 100% and I think the Nets will be able to take advantage, I kno wthey didn't there previous game but this game will mean more and I feel that they would come with more drive to win the game.
