Now we're in the 2nd round so lets focus more on the match ups per round.

Lakers VS Mavs


This should be a easy win for the Lakers

I think this is the first time Dirk and Kobe will meet in the playoffs, right?

That's the last Lakers-Mavs series? Wow..... what I was getting at earlier though, I think Dirk must be the only major Western conference star that he's never faced in the playoffs...till now.

^ concur... I think Dirk is going to be neutralized from the combo of Artest, Odom, Barnes all taking turns defending him. He's 7 feet but doesn't play like it.... Lakers otherwise have too much firepower particularly with a healthy Bynum( though with him, you never know). Fisher won't be abused by Kidd like he was by Paul, Kidd's not much faster than Derek these days, though still has the IQ and intangibles.... I'll say Lakers in 6.

Wow. Interesting they'd not met before, I never would have guessed that.

While I like an underdog I will probably root for the Mavs but realistically I will have to go with the Lakers in 6.

Not to say this will be an indicator on how this series will go but the last time they met during the regular season on March 31 at Staples, Lakers won by 28, 110-82. Lakers were 2-1 vs Mavericks overall this season. Looking forward to a good series!

Lakers are favs, but look for Dallas to make it interesting. I have the Lakers in 7.
