The Playoffs Thread 

Post#1 » by HartfordWhalers » Sun May 16, 2021 9:13 pm

Cause Sixers have the 1 seed locked up, and because the playin bracket is locked up, I'm going to ignore game 82 72 and start an (official?) playoff thread.

To start it off, who do you guys want in Round 1?
Washington or Boston?

I think the Wizards would be the easier series, but I want to destroy the Celtics while they're down.

Boston would be the easiest and most satisfying series.

Lower half of the bracket looks TOUGH. Glad we don't have to worry about any of that ****.

I want the Celtics. Revenge for last years sweep would be great. (‘sweep them)
Second I think the Wizards can win at least 1 game from BRK.

So if things go according to seeding, we play Wizards and Knicks

No disrespect but if we fail to make ECF then that’s a big failure

When you put it like that, I agree.

Don't really care, but Wizards may be better for us cause they have equally terrible coach.

I'm a little afraid who ever it is, we come out flat thinking we will just roll them. :( I almost think the Celtics past rivalry hype will help our guys stay more focused.

slightly off topic - but i remember seeing somewhere that Philly has a terrible transition defense, but still managed to have one of the top 5 D's in the league

Now i'm not entirely sure how calculators work - but the above statement would mean that Phillys half court D/non transition D is off the charts (terrible transition D yet still has a top ranked D)?

And we know in the playoffs it becomes a half court game..

Our path to the ECF is so easy that if we fail to get there, Doc should be on the hot seat even after a year. I mean, the East, aside from BKN, MIL, and MIA is atrocious and we wouldn't see any of them until the ECF.
