    Who wants to avoid who in the first round (Western Conference only plz)

    The Top 4 contenders are set; Spurs, OKC, Clips and the Rockets are seeded 1-4, the rest of the standings could still change. So, with that in mind, of the remaining 5 could-be contenders, who would teams rather play/avoid.

    Heres the format:


    Portland
    Wants to play: _______
    Does not Want: ________


    Memphis
    Wants to play: _______
    Does not Want: ________


    GSW
    Wants to play: _______
    Does not Want: ________


    Dallas
    Wants to play: _______
    Does not Want: ________

    Phoenix
    Wants to play: _______
    Does not Want: ________

    Basically, who would they want out of the top-4 seeds but feel free to do the inverse for the top-4 seeds.
    Yo Kobe, get at me bro, we'd have a good time, man

    Memphis would be the correct answer in this scenario

    It'd be a tight series, Vegas would still favor LAC slightly - especially with HCA.

    Phoenix should want to play Portland, Houston, LAC (in that order). Not to say we'd beat any of them but there would at least be a chance.
    Nobody should want to plan Memphis IMO.

    As good as both those teams are, the Grizz match up really well with them.

    I really believe all 1-4 seeds are trying to avoid Memphis, while 5-8 seeds are trying to avoid San Antonio and OKC.


    I'd rather play against HOU or LAC if i were a 5-8 team.

    Nobody wants Memphis.
    Everyone is ok with Portland.

    The rest is debatable. =P

    Giants do you even watch the Clippers lol? We are 3-0 vs Mavs with double digit comebacks every single time, despite being severely shorthanded. As for Memphis they are tough for anybody but people exaggerate so much. Conveniently forgetting we beat them the year before and have won 10 of the last 15 matchups outside of 1-1 vs them in playoffs. Tired of this exaggeration.

    As for GS, they do give us problems. But as Tre said it would be a 7 game series and we'd be favored with HCA. The H2H is 2-2 this year so it's not like we re GS's most desired opponent in the west.

    The only team I don't like our chances against is the Spurs. Although the Clippers have come very far since we last played. Clips now have the 1st ranked offense, 5th ranked D and best differential in the league. That's while being hit brutally by injuries to best players all year. NOBODY should be pulling for the Clippers to play their team in round one. When this team is healthy, teams are ****ed.

    The problem with the Memphis isn't that they can't be beaten in the first round. I like all the top 4 seeds against Memphis to win.

    However, they're SO physical that even if you win, you Lose. You come out beaten up and worn down going into the 2nd round.

    It's more that than anything.
