I figured I'd get the ball rolling again, since we're in for about a week of not much going on.
A repeat of the most lopsided sweep in NBA history, and little reason to believe this year will result in a different outcome. Orlando isn't quite as good as they were last year, but neither is Atlanta. Orlando overhauled their roster, while the Hawks brought everyone back, sans the Bibby/Hinrich swap.
Key matchup: Kirk Hinrich vs Jameer Nelson/Gilbert Arenas
As much as Howard beat up the Hawks last season, Nelson is the one that broke down the defense and got the ball into Howard's hands. Atlanta's one and only chance to get their transition game going is if Kirk is able to keep Orlando's guards in front of him, and make somebody else create offense.
Prediction: Orlando in 6
