Default 2009 Playoffs Round 1: #4 Hawks vs #5 Heat

Probably going to be the best series in the first round.

Post your predictions, who to look out for, and all that here.

Key Matchups

Joe Johnson vs Dwyane Wade

2 of the best SGs the game has to offer going head to head. Its going to be a back and forth battle, and I cant wait to see how Wade does. As we already know he is an amazing playoff performer and knows how to step it up. Johnson on the other hand was part of the Hawks team last year that almost upset the Celtics(who would go on to be champions).

Mike Bibby vs Mario Chalmers

If you didnt see Chalmers performance and clutch shots in the NCAA finals 2 years ago, go watch it. This guy is not shy when it comes to performing in the bright lights. Bibby on the other hand has been doing quite well this year. I thought I would see a big decline in his game, but I was wrong. These are 2 great PGs, fine matchup.

Players to look out for
Wade(MIA)
Johnson(ATL)
Bibby(ATL)
Beasley(MIA)
Smith(ATL)
Chalmers(MIA)
Daequan Cook(MIA)
Al Horford(ATL)

This has the potential to be one of the most exciting playoff series in the East. If Michael Beasley is as effective as he's been to close the season, Jermaine O'Neal steps it up, Cook hits his three's, and Wade is Wade; I see the Heat running away with it. To me, it comes down to which team has the best player in the playoffs, and obvious Wade is the guy for this series. The Hawks are less of a question mark all around, so I'd say the odd's are against the Heat.

This one should go all 7.

I think Jermaine O'Neal will have a greater impact than Daequan Cook.

Cook closed out the second half of the season after the All-star break as one of the worst streak shooters out. Went from 42% down to 38% from 3-PT.

The things I'm worried about are Haslem & Moon bouncing back from their injuries, and Jermaine O'Neal staying healthy. Other than that if Wade shows up in '06 championship form, the Heat win this series 4-2.

i can't even remember the last time JO had a good game against the Hawks. He hasn't done anything against the hawks in years. I think they would be better off going with Joel Anthony. JO sucks.

The Hawks should win this in 5 or 6. The Heat don't match up well with the Hawks at all.

Read an article from Ira Winderman that mentioned the possibility of us starting Beasley at the 3. The idea being Mo Evans wouldn't provide a difficult cover for Beasley on defense and Marvin is still injured. Would create some match-up problems for the Hawks. However, if this does happen Wade would be guarding Joe Johnson a lot more than if Moon or James Jones started at the 3.
