Elk is a good team but I like Harlem here and it wasn't a tough decision. Elk's perimeter defense is one of the worst in the redraft and that plays right into a strength for Harlem. Plus I love Dirk but it is Anthony Davis's time to shine. IMO he is the best player in the series. Congrats to both teams.

agreed, having Thomas/Dunleavy one of them guarding Tony Parker is gonna be ugly, and Davis is definitely the matchup's best player

Home court for Harlem is the difference maker for me

Elk should have made a move for a better SG

I take Elk. I like the idea that Dirk can space the floor so Drummond can go against Dieng. And that's a great match up for Elk. Also if you swith Davis to Andre I cant see Dieng guarding Dirk outside or Ilyasova inside.
The other think is that the bench looks really strong for Elk compare to Harlem.

If you switch Davis to Drummond, sure. But it's likely that Davis will guard Dirk anyway

Harlem here. Better defense. Best player. Just a more well-rounded basketball team overall. I think they win this series in 5 or 6.
