What team do you think would be the toughest team to beat in a series when healthy with Homecourt Advantage?

Here are some records from last year.


Boston 35-6, 11-1 Playoffs (4-0 series with HC Advantage)

Detroit 34-7, 6-3 Playoffs (2-0 series with HC Advantage)

Cleveland 27-14, 5-1 Playoffs (1-0 series with HC Advantage)

LA Lakers 30-11, 10-1 Playoffs (3-0 series with HC Advantage)

Utah 37-4, 4-2 Playoffs (0-0 series with HC Advantage)

San Antonio 34-7, 7-1 Playoffs (1-0 series with HC Advantage)

New Orleans 30-11, 6-1 Playoffs (1-1 series with HC Advantage)

Dallas 34-7, 1-1 Playoffs (0-0 series with HC Advantage)

Houston 31-10, 1-2 Playoffs (0-1 series with HC Advantage)

I think you have to say Boston. They have a good crowd, and it's already tough to score on them, no matter where your playing. Same goes for Utah and San Antonio.

I saw Boston as well. But all those teams on your list JB are hard to beat at home.

^ditto...Boston was amazing at home during the playoffs, L.A. was dominant as well even though they weren't at full strength, & Utah is as good as anyone in the league at home.

Its Boston and LA at 1 and 2.

I'm not sure about Utah because the Lakers weren't at full strength, and still beat utah @ utah during the season when they had the ridiculous winning streak and during the playoffs 1 of 3 times as well, with both losses being very close (1 lost by 5 and the other in OT). It could be because we match up with them well, but I'm not sure if their homecourt is that great. Lakers only lost one game at home in all the playoffs (the blown 24 point lead :mad:).

Boston, the easy pick. We didn't lose last year and we won't this year

37-4 at home
17-24 on the road

Yes they are that good at home. They are an entirely different team at home.

And about the full strength thing, The jazz beat the lakers by 24 the previous home game without boozer and okur, and one of the main reasons the lakers beat the jazz the 2nd home game was because kobe and fisher were out to get the jazz fans for booing fisher.
