Default NBA - top rated West teams face doom?

It's funny how things have turned out for some of the top rated WEST teams to start things off. The Mavs get to play the Warriors, who match up very well and actually could make this a long seriers for Dallas. I think Dallas will win but it won't be easy. The Spurs also face the teams that I think matches up the best with them in Denver. Again, I could see this one going 7. The Suns, now with Amare this year, I think will handle Kobe and company pretty easily, it's done in 4 games. Houston and Utah, I don't know who is the favorite but they will probably go all 7.

Spurs vs Nuggets is not a good matchup. Refs will kiss Duncans a** and the Nuggets will only win 1 game. I hope the Nuggs do pull this off but, it isn't likely.

The Golden State Warriors scare the crap out of me.

This is the same team (but better) that beat San Antonio on their own floor in game 7 last season. They arent afraid of jack, son. You can roll whoever you want out there.

The Warriors have won 5 straight, Nellie knows how to control Dirk, their short lineup will give them problems. This will go seven, I would not be surprised if the Warriors take it, they have played well since their trade. They will be caught looking ahead.

The real Mavericks are going to roll out onto the floor starting this Sunday. The playoff Mavs that clinically took apart the Western Conference last season are better than they were last year.

They chose the Warriors.

Dallas will win in 4 games.

Yes I did say that, Mavs looked hopeless last night.

Good call

Dallas wins in 5. I think there will be a close game or two, but not enough to scare the Mavs. I'm more interested in the off-the-court drama.

Suns roll over the Lakers. They're limping into the playoffs. Kobe could score 90 a game and Phoenix should still win. That said, fun series to watch.

Spurs should win in 6. Nugs have the talent to win two, I just hope they do.

Houston should beat Utah. Utah's limping in, T-Mac is determined and Yao is playing some great ball right now.

All that said, every one of those series should be fun to watch. They just won't go 7.

No, that's why Nellie has been saving Foyle. We'll give you 20+ million...you beat up Dirk in the parking lot and get tossed.

They'd use Stephen Jackson, but he's actually important.

Or I suppose they could do what Kings fans did to Kobe except replace food poisoning with whatever welcome mat Oakland can provide.

It really depends on Nene.. if he can prove to be a credible offensive threat he could really give the Spurs trouble. Since Bowen is going to be out on Anthony, Nene could help to collapse the defense and open things up for AI or Kleiza. He may even be able to force Duncan into foul trouble.

He's been playing great for the last 10 games or so... hopefully he'll keep it up.

IMO Nene is the X-Factor on both sides of the ball

To me, the X-factor for the Nuggets will be the shooting of Steve Blake, JR Smith and Linas Kleiza. The Spurs are going to clog the paint, that's a given. They're going to double Carmelo every time he gets the ball in the post and they'll send extra defenders to cut off Iverson's lanes to the basket. It's going to be up to the aforementioned trio to knock down the open shots they're going to get when the Spurs defense collapses on Iverson & Anthony. If they can do that with some consistency, the Nuggets can make a series of it.

I don't think Smith sees much, if any, time in the playoffs. Baring major foul trouble, I think Karl wants to use a 7-man rotation.

I think they're gonna have to use him. Parker & Ginobli are pretty adept at driving to the basket and drawing contact. Well, Ginobli's pretty good at making the officials believe there was contact anyway.

Excellent analysis ... and I agree with you Triple, Nene is the wild card. He has improved each and every week this season. If his game takes a decent-sized jump in this series, Nuggets can definitely win.

AI always raises his game in the playoffs too ...

I think the Mavs will win ,but it will be a tough series it'll go 6.
The Spurs will win in 5 over Denver.
Houston will beat Utah in 6
The Suns will beat the Lakers in 7.- This is going to be a better series than people think.
