View Full Version : 1st Round - 7 games

They just announced that the first-round playoff series will be best of 7 now.

This could be a problem for the Mavericks if it ends up being a Mavericks-Lakers first round series. I like the team's chances better in a shorter series against the Lakers. Long way to go, but just the first thought I had when I heard this news.

Anyone else concerned?

Aww man. now this is getting serious here. I really really hope that if the lakers are going to make a playoff run then lets just hope they fall into the seventh seed and hope that the kings get the second seed. I just hope that if that happens the lakers would beat the kings and take on the mavs, that way we dont have much besides the lakers.

40,000 more tickets for selling.

Big money.

(But more chances for Chiwas to assist!)

This means that we need 16 instead of 15 postseason victories.

The champion this year will set a postseason record for most victories in a single postseason. i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif

Honestly, I think it favors the Mavericks in a first round series with the Lakers.

They would open that series with serious nerves. The new format gives them a chance to get over those nerves. I think the better team prevails in a seven game series, and quite honestly, I think the Mavs are a bette team than the Lakers.
