    Default 2010 NBA Playoffs: (2) Orlando vs (7) Charlotte

    Orlando this time around looks better to me. Better starters, better bench, and a healthy Jameer Nelson. They were sleepers last year, but this year I'm just stopping short of calling them favorites to win it all.

    1st time in the postseason for the Bobcats. Unfortunately, Orlando with Dwight might be as bad a matchup as it gets for them.

    I'd like to see them win their first playoff game, but don't think it'll be this year. Orlando in 4.

    Key Matchup: Stephen Jackson vs Vince Carter. If Charlotte is going to win any games at all, it will be because Jax won his individual matchup at SG. Charlotte needs to dominate the wing positions if they want to have a chance.

    The Bobcats will play hard, smart, well, but they just aren't good enough to give the Magic much of a series. I see the Magic in 5 games, but probably 4 of the 5 will be very competitive games.

    Magic in 5.

    Charlotte will win 1 game in Charlotte with Captain Jack leading the way, but the Magic are a serious title contender.

    Charlotte gets at least one at home. Orlando wins series 4-1
    Give the ball to your best playmakers to win

    If Orlando gets cold from the arc, the Bobs could win a game or two, but not very likely. Orlando in 5, but could sweep easily.

    I am gonna go contrarian here: Magic in 7.

    Charlotte is a scrappy, definsive minded team that is also well coached. Orlando is already looking ahead to their showdown with Cleaveland, and won't take the Bobcats seriously until the end.

    I dunno. A team that plays good D with vets on it has a chance against these guys.

    I actually see the Bobcats giving the Magic a fight, but ultimately I see the Magic winning it in 6.

    Charlotte is the best defensive team in the league and one that truly values possessions - 2 important factors in playoff basketball. They got the worst possible top seed, I'd like their chances way more against any other team, including Cleveland (that has lots of trouble dealing with Charlotte's combination of big guards + mobile bigs). Chandler looked good in the games I saw, he's the only Bobcats player able to defend Howard 1x1... is he in the shape necessary to play 30mpg for the course of a series? Charlotte is excellent being aggressive with double teams (Carter must be ready to escape from plenty of flash doubles) and forcing teams to go the pick'n'roll or clearouts later in the clock.

    The biggest problem for the Bobcats is on the other end though... maybe if they're able to force Howard to come outside to defend the pick'n'roll. I don't trust their guards to drive on him though.

    Assuming Chandler can play, the key matchup to me is Diaw vs. Lewis. Diaw is going to be the key to avoid Charlotte from going through extremely prolonged scoring droughts.

    With Wince Carter in the mix, Charlotte has a chance.

    I really think some of ya'll are underestimating the Bobcats. I think the Magic will win the series, but anytime the best defensive team in the NBA is in the mix, you know its not going to be easy to beat them. Especially since they have improved a lot from the trade alone, their record is fairly deceiving. I live in Charlotte, so I'm hoping I can make it to a game or two, should be a fun series to watch.

    Wouldn't be the first time Jackson came in and led a team into the playoffs and a big time shocker upset.

    I don't really see it happening, but he's definitely a guy who can get it done.

    Jameer Nelson is taking over this game. What a terrible matchup for the Kitties.

    So far Nelson has made Felton look terrible - so I'm going to call it now anyway. This will be a breakout series for Felton, even if they lose, the NBA will finally see the type of player he is and can be.
