Anyone see the Mavs taking out NO? I like the Hornets, but I just can't stop thinking that they are one year away from making a serious run. And Dallas seems to be hitting their stride at the right time.

I still like my idea. Beyond the meaning between the lines, it sounds nice, at least to me.

Unless they go with the Oklahoma Tumbleweeds, since that's all that'll be in that arena after one losing season.

I think they do, even as unclutch as the Mavs are they simple have the more experienced team, and has New Orleans ever beat the Mavs at home?

this is exactly why the Lakers needed to wrap up home court and the #1 seed...the Mavs seem to be catching fire lately and I wouldn't want to play them in a seven game series...I think they beat the Hornets....in the playoffs

Wow...so much for the Jazz clinching home court advantage. San Antonio is up 65-39 at halftime.

And I dont think the Mavs wanted to play the Lakers because Kobe loves to play us, and would probably average 40 pts the series.


We are playing great ball at the right time of the year, and im loving the underdog role this year versus the years we were top 3 seeds, not as much pressure...I love the fight we put up 2nite, as much as I personally like the Hornets I feel they are vulnerable because their best player is Paul who has no playoff experience, neither does the rest of that team...That wouldnt of mattered vs LA, but vs NO I like our experience in a 7 game series, its very likely to go 6-7 games, but Dirk is finally playing like a beast and that playoff experience is huge ina 7 game series, unlike the 5 games the NBA used to have a few years back.

Ill take the 7 seed all day to play NO vs the 6 seed and having to play the Spurs which is just ugly...I think we fared pretty well.


speaking of LA, whats the status on the health of Gason and Bynum for the playoffs?

Ramon Sessions must be making quite the impression on new GM John Hammond

25 points, 14 assists, 7 rebounds tonight

Gasol is back to his old form....20+ points, 7+ rebounds, and 4+ assists...he's really been the key to this season...Mitch Kupchak (sp?) should really get GM of the year....

and Bynum I'm hearing rumors saying that he's still a month away from playing and he hasn't even been cleared to practice yet...but once that happens I expect him to be on the court rather quickly...

he'll backup Gasol and play sparingly with the starters..

In a NBA two round mock last year I had the Bucks taking Sessions and was very pleased when they did so...they actually took both players that I had them targeting with Yi and Ramon

Dammit, I was really hoping the Hornets would beat the Mavs. I would much rather play the Hornets than the Lakers. At the same time, I'm not overly concerned about playing the Lakers. It could be much worse... like playing the Jazz or Spurs in my opinion.

This should be a very interesting playoff series... very star studded. To be honest tho, I believe that the key for the Nuggets to beat the Lakers will NOT be on stopping Kobe Bryant. I believe that Kobe will be Kobe and get his points... it's impossible to shut him down (especially with our defense...).

However, I feel that K-Mart can really bully a scrawny player such as Pau Gasol. What really scares me about LA though is there amazing bench play. Their second unit crushes other teams' bench and allows the starters to not have to worry about carrying all the load. The Nuggets bench, tho, is very underrated (Najera, Kleiza, JR, Atkins, Nene), although they have not really shown up in the playoffs in the past. Fish also REALLY scares me. He always has his 3 point game on against us.

I don't think K-Mart has the size or athleticism to stop Gasol. He might be able to out muscle him down low but Gasol has a reliable jump shot from outside. Taking K-Mart out of the paint will make him vulnerable as we seen all year. I think the key to beating the Nuggets is taking full advantage of scoring opportunities and rebounding on both sides of the court.
