Default Who you want to play in the 1st round?

It is official we are in the playoffs.

And the next question poppin in my mind is what team we want to play in the first round? The west is even stronger this year. There are no weak teams at all.

IMO we should play with Denver because their D is wack.

Thoughts?

I would like to see Dallas that would be a very good first round match up i think, fun to watch. I really don't care who we play though becuase in the west right now everyone has a chance to beat anyone and it wouldnt really be an upset so bring on the competition!
GO LAKERS!!!

Denver or Houston.

Dallas would take us to 6-7 games with how they play us.

Houston is the best choice at this point for the obvious reason that they are not at full strength and a team without strength wont last in the playoffs.

A tim duncan-less spurs couldnt beat the struggling phoenix suns several years back.

If we play houston we should take it in about 5.

Default Re: Who you want to play in the 1st round?

I would say Dallas or Houston. Those teams have stars that are pretty banged up or completely out. Dirk is playing hurt right now just so the Mavs have a shot to make it in the playoffs, although he did look pretty good today against Phoenix. Houston of course since Yao is out they won't have enough down low to match up with the Lakers and Mcgrady has always been fragile. If the Lakers had Ariza back to D him up that match up would heavily favor LA I think.

Default Re: Who you want to play in the 1st round?

If we play Dallas, chances are all the games would come down to the final few minutes. I can't afford to get HBP right now and I wouldn't want my lakers to have a better chance of losing again as opposed to playing tired in the later rounds.

Since the number 2 or 3 seeds are our most likely chance of finishing, we need to hope that teams like denver or houston would land us.

Denver doesn't have that defensive mind set that george preaches to them on a daily basis and Houston isn't at full strength. Dallas wouldn't beat us IMO but we want the easiest possible route if we were to advance to the finals to play a team like Boston or detroit.

Golden State. They can't match up with us once we're big again. Rocks are ok too.

Dallas, Phoenix, and Denver all have punchers chances as they can explode at any given time.
