This is how I feel too.
That win 2 then lose to NY scenario where we determine the best 2-3 and 6-7 seeding for us is great.
I think we'd beat Philly in 4-5... not being cocky... they played us tight in the REGULAR season, but did not beat a fully healthy, fully motivated Celts team. I have a hard time seeeing ANY of their similar style/position players to ours actually outplaying one of our guys.
Will Holliday outplay Rondo?
Will Turner outplay Allen?
Will Meeks outplay Delonte?
Will Iguodala outplay Pierce?
Will Young outplay Green?
Will Brand outplay KG?
Will Speights outplay Baby?
Will Hawes outplay Kristic?
Will Battie outplay Jermaine O'Neal?
Maybe they win 2 of those 9?
You have to go all the way down to Nocioni/Antonio Daniels vs. Sasha/Murphy/Wafer matchups of 10th-12th men before you finally find something better for Philly.
They have Lou Williams as an injury wildcard and we have Shaq
