Default Round 1: Hornets vs. Mavs

Mavs (51-31) # 7 seed vs Hornets (56-26) # 2 seed

Match Ups

PG- Kidd vs Paul
Advantage Paul because he has more chance to take over the game. Also he uses a good defender on his team which distracts them from Peja or David West who can hit the jumper
Quote:
Advantage- Paul


SG- Stackhouse vs Mo Pete
Both players are good but are good at different things. Both can be somewhat unconsistent or wild. Although Mo Pete does have the Outside shot all give this one a tie
Quote:
TIE


SF- Howard vs Peja
This is a thoughone but Howard has a better ability to put large numbers in the points column and grab more rebounds. Peja has a better outside shot but it goes to Howard
Quote:
Advantage- Howard


PF- Dirk vs West
This was very tough for me because both were allstars. David West has a much more solid game in defence and in rebounding. Dirk has a good postup and a deadly 3-point shot.
Quote:
Advantage- Dirk



C- Dampier vs Chandler
This one was very easy for me. Considering Chandlers tough defense and power moves to the basket
Quote:
Great Advantage- Chandler


Benches-are split. although Dallas has posible 6th man of the year thats about all they have. The Hornets have some solid players such as Pargo and Wells. TIE

Hornets in 6

your dirk-west comparison is ridiculous. West isn't on the same tier as Dirk

Dallas in 6. There is too much responsibility on Paul for his first year of playoffs, he's going to get worn out.

west doesn't command double teams, Dirk does. West isn't as good on defense, not as good a passer, not as good facing up, not as good posting up, not as good shooting..there's nothing he is better at than Nowitzki.

and you're underestimating Dampier pretty badly too.

he's actually a pretty solid post defender, but with his back issues he can't guard penetration well

Saying West is close to Dirk is as stupid as saying Josh Howard is close to Kobe.
