    Sixers or Knicks, who do you prefer in Round 1?

    Of course, I'd love the Celts to get #1 seed but given the schedules
    and the way they're playing v. the way the Bulls are playing
    they'll probably be #2.  Tough choice, Philly plays well as a team
    Knicks have dangerous indiviudual players.

     I think we would be best playing NY..but it should not matter. Philly is scrappy. 

    This teams need to reestablish its identity get healthy and rested..there were alot of changes with that trade and it has affected the chemistry.  The chemistry coupled with the age of the team has caught with the Celtics of late.

    If we don't get more consistent, we could also end up with seed #3 because Miami is only 2 games behind us (3 in the loss column).

    I don't think it matters who the Celts play in the first round.  They have to play well and beat the team.  If the Celtics' fate was dependent on which of those two teams they play, then we aren't a championship team.  Bring on either the Knicks or the Sixers - we have to beat the weaker teams anyway so let's get on with it.

    If the Bulls end up the #1 seed then they will be eliminated in the 2nd round by the Orlando Magic. Noah and Kurt Thomas versus Dwight Howard?

    [QUOTE]Really, you think Magic beat Bulls?  How'd they do head to head this year?

    Bulls lead the season series 2-1 with one more game at Orlando in April.

    The Bulls are a team built like a house of cards. It's a one man team, other than Rose there is no one else that can be considered a big time player. 

    Michael Jordan scored 63 points against the Celtics in 1986 and the Bulls didn't win that game. After the game Jordan said, "No one man can beat the Boston Celtics."

    Definitly New York - all of the sixers have heart, hustle and energy.

    I think we match up better with the Knicks also. I think they may fall to 8th spot so we need to be number 1 to play them. It will be fun to watch the game tonight.

    Either team. The C's will beat both in 4. Is the first round still the best of 5? Pardon my memory.

    neither. we're gunning for that number one spot. why do you think we've played a playoff-like rotation recently?

    I figure we're better off putting that little bit of extra effort now in order to get 4 easy games against indiana/charlotte/milwaukeee, whoever scrapes into that no 8 spot, plus a couple of extra days off while seeds 2-7 are all fighting 6 and 7 game series.

    btw, john hollinger's machine (http://espn.go.com/nba/hollinger/playoffodds) which puts an absolute premium on recent form (chicago has been scintillating, boston inconsistent), has the bulls finishing a mere 1 game ahead of us

    the finish line is in sight. we could easily be number 1

    Right now I'd rather play the Knicks, obviously.  Ask me again at the end of the season, but we have a hard time keeping up with good, penetrating, athletic wingmen.  It's been a problem for PP I've noticed ever since Arizona beat us in the quarters of the NCAA.  As a general rule it's a lot easier to out-quick the C's than it is to overpower them.  Esp in the 2 and 3 slots.

    It's not a matter of beating them, it's a matter of saving energy for later rounds, as we were able to do last year vs the heat.

    2.5 I'd say, counting billips.  But after that they got nothing but fields.  I'd take miami's supporting cast over NY.

    I have a healthy respect for the sixers hard work and hustle. We will beat them but it will be a track meet.

     You're right about Billips, he still can be a great player at times. They don't call him Mr. big shot for nothing!!

    The Knicks!  Melo is playing melo. Look at how good Denver is without him.   Melo is overrated.
