Not even Josh Smith and his ill-advised three-pointers could stop us tonight. Whew!

This is one of those series where I wouldn't mind a win by either team. I think both Atlanta and Milwaukee are due for some playoff success.

Until they meet up with Orlando. Can't help but think either team gets swept in the second round.

I agree with ekedolphin, vehemently disagree with you. Just because two good teams are battling to a 7th game does not mean a slightly better team is just going to sweep by them next. Orlando will win the next series more than likely, but I'd be highly surprised if they swept either one.

If it makes you feel any better, my prediction of their performance in the next round has nothing to do with the fact that they are playing 7 games in this round. Rather, it has everything to do with my thinking that Orlando is more than *slightly* better than either of these two teams.

I mean it more in terms of 'well Atlanta is a flawed team and Milwaukee has half their team injured and yet they're going 7 games with each other, how will they stand a chance against Orlando?' I see it like this. Dwight Howard is the only advantage Orlando will have. Vince Carter isn't going to scare the Bucks or Hawks, and Jameer Nelson is not that much better than Atlanta and Milwaukee's point guards. I could see either series going 6 or 7.

Then again, I said this about ATL/CLE last year and that was a sweep, and I thought Charlotte would take Orlando to a good series, so I could be wrong again. I do underestimate Orlando a lot.

I honestly think Orlando and Atlanta are going to match-up pretty well. The Hawks had to use 7 games to get rid of the pesky Bucks but the Bucks during the regular season did pretty well against the NBA's elite.

Both Orlando and Atlanta have athleticism which should be could make the series more fast-paced. I think Orlando is going to win in 6 but Atlanta should be a good challenge for the Magic.

A lot of series have been pretty competitive such as 8th seed Thunder nearly taking the Lakers into 7 games, while Milwaukee proved that they should not be underestimated.

Western Conference seeds this year should be disregarded. There was hardly any difference between teams 2 through 8.

I doubt the Hawks will beat the Magic. Josh Smith has picked up his old bad habit of jacking up three pointers, and in my opinion it's already cost us a game (Game 5), so it's only a matter of time before it causes even more damage. But even if he would go back to playing the right way, we don't really have an answer for Dwight Howard.

I hate to say it but our only hope is if all of the following happen: Joe Johnson wakes back up and realizes he's in a contract year with all eyes on him, Jamal Crawford continues to skyrocket, and Dwight Howard continues to earn his new nickname ("Foul On You").
