    Meh, every series and match up is different. We don't really know what will be needed against Sixers until they play a game or two. As for the Bucks, well, they have their hands full with Boston. I wouldn't assume the Bucks will win that series. I actually think Celtics will handle them. That Celtics team is battle tested. Bucks aren't.
    Agreed. I think the Bucks can take it in 6 or 7, but I wouldn't be surprised if the Celtics win in 6 or 7.

    Big closeout gane Tuesday. Solid team performance. Kawhi was back to beast mode. The bench was solid. Lowry was ok, but 6 turnovers against a team like Orlando is not going to cut it and Danny needs to get back on track. A bit of a funk, because 107 points is not enough against teams like Philly or Bucks.
    Wait until they get a taste of the big beef D.

    True. Worst possible matchup for Simmons in the NBA is Kawhi. Lowry can guard Redick. Green on Butler. Siakam on Harris. That looks real nice on paper.

    I like our matchup with the Sixers

    Simmons vs Kawhi, Embiid vs Gasol - we've got a lot of advantages here
    Their talent level is heads and shoulders above the Magic though. They have four All-Star calibre players and one of the league's best snipers in Redick. That said, like us, they're trying to build chemistry after midseason roster turnover.

    The key liability for them and advantage for us is that Simmons can't shoot. But if they stick Butler on Kawhi we are going to need our supporting cast to really step up.

    I expect that series to be an absolute slugfest.

    I agree. I think Raps match up great against the Sixers.

    Raps have definitely had better playoff games but I'm not sure they've had a statement game like this, at least not with this generation. Everyone was good. Defence was great. Offence was good enough. And they were in control from the start of the 2Q on. Orlando is trying hard and they are fighting but just don't have the weapons.
