AF89 Posted April 13, 2015 Share Posted April 13, 2015 Obviously I think we all want the Nets to be the one to miss out here, but I think an argument can be made that they're our best matchup as 1st opponent goes. Lopez and Young are their only real consistent threats to score and Lopez just cannot guard Horford, Moose or Antic on the defensive end. Joe Johnson simply isn't going to show up for a full seven games series and at this point neither is Darren Williams.The Pacers represent our toughest threat I think. With Paul George back in the picture it represents a potential wildcard in our matchup and in recent years that's a tough place to play when that team is on. It's still a matchup I think we'd win but there is a danger of this getting pushed to a 6 game series if things don't fall our way or god forbid even 7.I think the perfect matchup would be the Celtics. We matchup well against them and we wouldn't be sacrificing draft hierarchy to go against them. However they've played us tough this year forcing us to stage an epic comeback earlier in the year and later putting up their own comeback just before the ASG when the Hawks were on a 4 games in 5 nights stretch on tired legs Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
