I agree, i would rather have the pacers first, but i would rather get the bucks at the conf finals than the 2nd rd. Who knows, they might get pressured to win and crumble. or they might get beat up by the Heat in the 2nd rd. Maybe a nagging injury to one of their key players by then, just like with Kemba. Though the Raps in the 2nd could be as tough as the bucks. Let’s just hope we play focused and confident basketball by the time the playoffs start.
Meh, were going to have to go through Milwaukee eventually, R2 or R3 makes no difference to me. Losing in the first round though? Yah, thats bad IMO.
My thinking on this is, if we are concerned about losing to our first round opponent no matter who it is then this is all just semantics. Toronto or Milwaukee will clean our clocks. If we think we can hang, or beat either of those teams in a 7 game series then our first round opponent is irrelevant no matter who it is. Neutral court for the post season changes absolutely everything for me. I just want us healthy for when the real games start in the playoffs
Eh, its okay to admit Philly is a bad matchup for us. Were prone against big Centers [its why Giannis beasts us, too], and Embiid is just a massive mismatch against us. I’d like to avoid him if at all possible.
Also, getting Milwaukee round 2 has advantages— theyre going to sweep the first round easily and its possible they get rusty early on.
