Been gone a while, but it's close to the postseason so I'm going to try to post more. Chris, tbh I have no preference as to whom the Lakers play first. New Orleans will play either Dallas or LA and I don't care who they play because I will pull for their opponent anyway. But I kinda hope that the play-offs are based off the current standings. LA/NOLA and Dallas/Portland. I had NO clue Dallas had lost 8 STRAIGHT times in New Orleans (not versus New Orleans; they beat them at home in November). They are 2-1 against Portland this season, so that's the first round scenario I'd prefer.
I'm not sure how it works, but who would Dallas' potential second round match up (should they make it through the first round )? San Antonio or LA?
Nice to see you back here Dani, I hope you've been well and that you'll be around here much more these next few months
Yeah that's true that whoever NO face out of the Lakers and Mavs you'll be cheering for the latter
Memphis could even catch New Orleans so then maybe it could be a good scenario for you of them facing the Spurs 1st round. Yeah its an unbelievable record that New Orleans have at home to Dallas, I have no idea how they've been able to do that given how strong the Mavs are each regular season.
If the Lakers and Mavs finish 2nd and 3rd(looks very likely) then should they both win their 1st round series they'll face each other in the Conference Semi Finals as the seedings go
So 2 and 3 will face off in the 2nd round, and both avoid the number 1 seeds until at least the Conference Finals.
