One series is already locked up: Houston vs Utah. The only thing left to decide is the seeding.
This could possibly be the best series of the first round. Both teams rely heavily on their starters.
Houston has the obvious advantage due to star power and size, but Utah is going to have the biggest mismatch, with Carlos Boozer going up against either Juwan Howard or Chuck Hayes. Utah can also make Yao move around on defense more than any other West team outside of Phoenix, because their big men can all run the floor and shoot with range.
