Default Would we rather cool off or keep going hot?

Ideally I rather Philly plays Orlando, rather than Detroit or Boston (obviously), but more importantly, I wouldn't want the #5 seed coz that means we'll face the Cavs and Lebron in the 1st round.

Does anyone out there think I'm overrating Lebron/Cavs or underrating Orlando?

Whoever Philadelphia plays it's probably a first round exit. Therefore, the question should be (imo) directed towards which would be the most interesting matchup.

Clearly Boston or Detroit wouldn't be fun. It's between Cleveland and Orlando.

Against Orlando, it would be difficult to guard the Turkoglu/Lewis tandem at the same time. Iguodala guards one and... who gets the other guy? Miller working Nelson should work, and Dalembert would have to bust his a$$ trying to slow Howard.

Maybe a Cleveland matchup would be more fun to watch. Dalembert would need to do a hell of a job on Z on the perimeter, and Miller would have to abuse West on offense. That, and how far can Iguodala go in slowing down Lebron.

I would like to see us play Cleveland because I think the series would be very competitive and idk if we have the plays to stop the combined force of Howard/Lewis/Hedo for the Magic. It would be fun to watch how Iggy does versus Lebron and how are younger players perform in a playoff atmosphere.

Getting our young player, including Iggy, some playoff experience is really the key at this point. Winning a series isnt very likely but it will be good for Louis Williams and Thad Young to get their feet wet without much pressure on them.

this is insane we go from talking beasly/rose i come back and we're talking first round playoffs ....wicked for now. i'd rather see orlando for some odd reason because they are just as playoff rusty as the young gun sixers. wouldn't mind seeing philly cut some teeth on the cavs who are playoff tested.
