Default Ecf?

i think we're making the 2nd round this year if the chemistry plays out the way it should, any takers on an ECF birth?

hmmm? =D

I think it's Boston and Orlando this year. But if we can catch a little luck, maybe.

i think we can, our ceiling is 2nd in the East, and our floor is 6th. I'd put my money on somewhere in between though, with a 2nd round birth

They're a matchup nightmare. Here's the games we had against them...

1st game- Orlando had 9 threes
2nd game- Orlando had 15 threes (on 45%)
3rd game- Orlando had 11 threes (on 42%)
4th game- Orlando had 14 threes (on 60%)

When you have a 6'10" guy playing power forward (Rashard Lewis) who hit 41% from deep and 226 threes (3rd most in the league) and another 6'10" guy playing sf (Hedo) who knocks down shot after shot, it's scary. I haven't even gotten to the 21/14/2 guy in the middle who is only going to get better.

Philly just struggles to matchup with them. They won the season series last year 3-1 putting up 106 ppg against us. Don't underestimate Stan Van Gundy either. He's a great coach. 52 win team last season. Their team isn't going to get worse just because we got better.

Posterize is absolutely correct about our struggles with Orlando. Since the 99-00 season we have never won a season series against Orlando. You can check that on nba.com yourself. Even the year we went to the nba finals with Iverson they still beat the tar out of us. Overall they just have our number and have had it for many of years. We just can't beat them no matter how bad they are or how good we are.

It's more than a matchup problem with all the games we lost to Orlando. We simply just can't beat them period.
