    If the playoffs seeding stayed the same as it is now..

    If the playoffs started with teams finishing exactly where they are placed in the standings, and had fully healthy rosters; some of these match up's would be very interesting.

    In the West
    Rockets VS Clippers - which team would be the first round exit? I'm guessing the general consensus will be the Rockets. But both teams have high aspirations and it would be almost unheard of for either to be outsted in the first round. Would Dantoni or Rivers get fired if either team got eleminated in the first round?

    Jazz vs Mavs - I would put my money on the Mavs in 6 with both teams being fully healthy. I just don't see the Jazz having any answers for Doncic.What would this mean for the Jazz if they are eliminated again as a higher seed?

    In the East
    Bucks vs Nets - with Irving and Durant Healthy and a very respectable supporting cast in Dinwidie, Lavert, Jordan, Harris, Allen & Prince. Would the 8th seed Nets win? What would that mean for Giannis and his pending free agency in 2021?

    Heat vs 76ers - with the Heat playing so well in the regular season would they get exposed in the first round by a healthy Embiid and co? Or with a Heat win, would a first round exit for the 6ers signal a Simmons or Embiid trade?

    For me the nets & bucks would be most intriguing. I wonder if there's any chance of Durant returning by the playoffs

    This. I think a fresher Harden has a better chance against the Clips than in the second round on. I still think Clips will win in 6 games. Rockets match up pretty good against the Clips.

    They’d have a good chance with Oladipo back for sure but I wouldn’t say it’s guaranteed like you make it sound. The raptors are tough at full strength.

    I remember Clips we’re up big in LA against them and the rockets stormed back for the win. Would definitely be a fun series.

    Jazz will dominate them this year. Now next year when the Unicorn is back to 100%, that would be a great series. I could be wrong and after his injection he might be 100% towards the end of this season.

    I actually love the fact that the east is more competitive this year top to bottom. The west is always a fight for seeding right up to the 82nd game of the season. The east looks that way this year to. It's gonna be a fun playoffs. So many must watch match up's
