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

does it really matter who the lakers play in thefirst round? seriously, if they can't beat whoever they end up being seeded against then they don't belong in the second round...

back in the days of 5 game series in the first round i worried about matchups because any team can get lucky or hot for a couple games and steal one... but in 7 games series the better team wins...

to me, the road to the finals goes through san antonio until they get knocked out of the playoffs... they are the only team of the 30 in the NBA that have proven they belong...

I would want to see the Lakers play Houston or Dallas at this point. But Dallas scares me because both games we've played them has gone down to the wire so they can easily go both ways in the Playoffs. Houston would be a sure win I think, but anyone else, would be a tough series.

Probably rockets, we can take advantage of their lack of inside help. But serioulsy, any one we get in the 1st round is going to be tough. Warriors, Dallas, Nugs, Rockets, all quality teams and are very very good 7,8 place teams. But i think rockets we have the best chance with

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

such a tough call, none of the teams are super appealing, my first choice is houston, i just don't think they could possibly outscore us 4 games out of 7. I think we could beat them in the fewest amount of games, they have the least playoff experience and I just don't like the chances of a team in the playoffs relying on rookies and mutumbo to hold the middle. i love what houston did, played right, strung together wins in the face of criticism like i just gave them, I just still choose them first.

Second choice is really tricky, I guess I almost lean towards Dallas, they haven't been up to big games at all late in the season and we seem to have their number for the most part. The bad thing with them is they are probably the most playoff experienced team and I do think it has to be factored in. Dirk, J-kidd, Jo-Ho, and Terry could all get white hot and it could be trouble. All four of them have been to the NBA Finals, they've all been deep in the playoffs, they understand the second season approach. They have obviously tested us at least in spells in every game this year. Dampier who is their weakest link is probably playing the best basketball of his career. That said, he and dirk are not enough of a presence to stop our frontcourt and we have shooters to deal with their adjustments and of course, Kobe.

Golden State doesn't have the men in the middle to deal with us, my boy lamar was basically back to back 20/20s against them and he is a tall small forward and respectfully, not a 20/20 guy. I don't see how they handle pau or bynum and i don't think our team is weak enough to have to compensate and play small ball like so many other teams inevitably feel they need to do. The problem is they showed us last year what their fearlessness and heart can do, they have the ability to outscore us, they took us to the limit in two games recently and they are really equipped to be nothing more than a giant-killer in the playoffs, you just don't want to be the giant they kill.

Denver we just mopped up this year I felt like but Camby is the most legit big man of the three teams in question for second choice, Melo and Iverson, say what you will, are lethal offensive options. Xfactor guys like najera and smith (and nene and k-mart and kleiza) have deadly capacity on a given night or stretch. They don't play D, they don't seem like they should beat us but they're the most complete team and their firepower matches the warriors in my eyes, certainly in terms of versatility. It's dangerous grounds no matter who we face, I'm glad these last five games are relatively important because we need to use this time to buckle down, regain our rhythm with Pau in the lineup, and be ready to win some tough games on the road. gonna be going against teams at full throttle every night.

TIEBREAKER SITUATION WITH SAN ANTONIO

spurs currently hold the tiebreaker over us because it's 2-1 in the season series, if we beat them it will be 2-2 and go to the conference record (would have gone to divisional record if we were in the same division) for the tiebreaker.

currently:
Lakers Conference Record 33-14
Spurs Conference Record 30-17

looks awfully favorable even if we lose to Portland and New Orleans.

****
and if you're curious or if i have my division/conference swapped in my understanding of the rules:
Lakers Division Record 10-4
Spurs Division Record 10-6

we'll certainly beat EITHER the clippers or kings and win that one as well, just in case.

I don't want to see that. Lol. Shaq should kill Bynum when his mojo returns on the court.
