Mavs playoff opponent? The "Who will it be?" thread

Lets keep up with scores here.

Lakers @ Kings
Hornets @ Clippers
Warriors @ Trailblazers

Lakers win, Warriors win = Mavs play Warriors
Lakers lose, Warriors win = Mavs play Lakers
Warriors lose, Clipps win = Mavs play Clippers

The intro page to the Warrior's website is already announcing that they're in the playoffs.

I haven't kept up with the Trailblazers. Is there a chance that GS will lose?

Possibly but probably not. They haven't had any passion to win all season, so I don't see them finding that for this meaningless game. Plus LaMarcus Aldridge is done for the season. But anything is possible when you're Golden State and don't play defense.

On the other hand, I do think the Kings would love to bounce the Lakers down to the 8th spot and with the way the Lakers have been playing lately, It's not out of the question at all. In fact, I think Sactown will beat them.

As a Spurs fan, I'm at a crossroads. I'd love GS to be the 8th seed to maybe win a few games against Dallas, but I'd also like GS to be the 7th seed to give Phoenix a run for their money so we might not have to play them in the 2nd round. Do I want the Spurs to have a better chance of going all the way, or do I want to see the Mavs possibly fail? Tough one.

God I hope so. I really do think we can take GS, in a series. However, I'd really hate to see the Mavs have to bust their asses to make it happen, and risk injuries and flat out wearing themselves out if it does go to 7 games, in the first round. If we play the Lakers, or the Clippers, I see sweeps or going 5 games max. I don't want to take it to 7 in the first round, and it appears to be highly possible if we have to play GS.

I've heard so much hype about how the Mavs may not be able to handle the Warriors, etc, etc, etc. The fact is, we've lost 3 games to them this year. The first was during our 0-4 start, the 2nd was at the end of a LONG win streak and we all know how hard it is to keep those going, and the 3rd was the other night in a MEANINGLESS game. My theory is that we see playing GS in the #8 spot as a nice warm up to play Phoenix in the conference finals. Both very similar teams in terms of the pace, focus on offense etc. Us being scared of GS is about as real as us being scared of the Clippers like they were saying in their newspaper today! LMAO!

Looks like the Clipper game won't even matter. GS is running on Portland is up 58-44 in the 2nd quarter. Lakers are currently getting beat by Sac-town 57-53. We may not know who we play for another hour or so.

The Spurs started a dominant crew tonight...like the Mavs did last night. Check this.

Bruce Bowen
Jackie Butler
Francisco Elson
Jacque Vaughn
James White

And they looked like the Mavs did last night, losing 100-77.

Mavs should be just about ready to let Dirk and crew sit down for the night. They started the 3rd period with a bang and are up 67-39 now.

In the other conference, everything is set now.

(Detroit) vs Orlando
(Cleveland) vs Washington
(Toronto) vs NJ
Miami vs (Chicago)

I put who I think will win in parenthesis.
