The 2007 NBA Playoffs - Page 6

post #76 of 2835
The Suns- Spurs series should be very entertaining. I have the Spurs taking it 4-2 or maybe 4-1, but I think the style of play will be exciting.

Don't think so. Spurs played Suns tempo yesterday and still beat them.

Suns absolutely, positively can't play defense.

It may go 7 but I doubt it.

For the record, these are my 2 favorite teams in the NBA, so I'm not a Spurs homer.

I think the Suns would have taken game 1 if Nash didn't look like he just came out of a 10 round fight with Mike Tyson.

Weren't they trailing before then?

They were trailing by a bucket with maybe half a minute to go, and missed that bucket. I think if Nash were in, they would have made it and the pressure would have been on the Spurs to counter, instead of what happened, which was a free throw contest.

Or at least made better decisions; if you're going to drive to the basket with that little time remaining and you trailing, you better be damn sure you make your layups. On several possessions in a row Amare looked like he wasn't sure if he was meant to be scoring or kicking to an open shooter, and the hesitation appeared to cost him some easy buckets. Those situations are when you need your PG most, and they seemed totally lost without Nash; they passed up some decent looks from three, first when they had time to set something up and then when they absolutely needed one. I think D'Antoni deserves a lot of the blame for how the last minute or so was handled...

I am hoping the Pistons embarass the baby Bulls again tonight. We did to Chicago exactly what they did to Miami. I believe we are the team to beat in the East.

Detroit is up 2-0 against chicago and ha strashed them in both games. Chicago shot 29 more free throws than us and we still won by 18-19 points. They simply can't hang. Out of all the teams left, we ahve looked the best so far. I think we will sweep the Bulls and move on to another easy opponent.

The Suns are too good, and Nash is too great a competitor, to go down that easy. I still think the Spurs will take it in the end (though I'd *much* rather watch Suns/Pistons than another Spurs/Pistons finals), but I don't think the Suns will go without a fight.

I'm going to risk looking like an idiot and take the Suns. It's true that they can't play d at a level anywhere near the Spurs, but that said, the Spurs have lost a step compared to their '03 and '05 title teams. I think the Suns are potent enough offensively to overcome SA's defensive advantage...

It's the power of the nose. Nash is going to be just like Hamilton when he donned the mask. He might wear bandages forever if they win the championship.

I've always had the Spurs especially against the Suns, I firmly believe you need a dominate player on your team to win, the Spurs are the only team , except for the Cavs( who have no chance), who do. Aside from the Piston's team a few years ago, I can't think of a team who've won in the last ten years without a dominate player.
post #90 of 2835
When you think of dominate do you only think of big men? I think Jason Kidd or Steve Nash or even Stoudamire can be dominate just not in the beastly 7' center kind of dominate.
