That 2nd round match-up is a b**** because I think Denver takes that series in 4 or 5 games. Denver is the team that I think MOST takes us out of our comfort zone. More so than the Thunder or the Clippers.
I agree, I think Denver and the Clippers are equal in terms of taking us out of our comfort. But Denver has the edge because they're all young, long, athletic, and they have a couple of guys that can create their own shot (Lawson, Iggy, Miller). Clippers are CP3 dependant, and their bench is not as athletic.
I was mostly hoping that we get SAS as the 2nd seed with us being 7 (OKC #1). That would hopefully put us against either the Grizzlies or Warriors round 2 who we could take in a 7 game series. We'd need to play 2 rounds of half-court defense and save our legs for the WCF against the Thunder.
I doubt that happens with OKC struggling a bit, they'll probably stay at 2. I still think the 6th seed is within reach, but that means we'd probably play OKC round 2.
