    Default 2011 NBA Playoffs: (2) Los Angeles vs. (7) New Orleans

    Chris Paul vs. Derek Fisher is one of the biggest singular mismatches of the playoffs, but ironically, this series itself is just as lopsided the other way. The Hornets were arguably the best team in the NBA for the first full month of the season, but David West's injury killed their momentum. They've gotten by on Carl Landry, but that won't be enough to give the Lakers a fight.

    Prediction: LA in 4

    Lakers sweep.

    CP3 can only do so much. And without David West, the offense and inside presence of NO has weakened. Ariza may be able to guard Kobe effectively, but nobody can easily guard Pau.

    New Orleans takes game two barely with LA looking lazy after a game one blowout. 3-4-5 the Lakers win by a combined 30+.

    I don't think this will be much of a series. Only possible ray of hope for the Hornets is the Lakers struggle against good point guards.

    The outcome of this series will never be in doubt

    With CP3 probably already in heavy negotiations to play absolutely anywhere else but NO, the Lakers are already into the second round. The games are pretty much a formality due to TV obligations.

    Lakers sweep. Tis a shame they didn't finish third, as the Blazers would have given them a series.

    I'm still surpised the Hornets had as good of a season as they did. Even with the Lakers' late-season struggles, I look for them to have little problem with Nawlins.

    Lakers in 5.

    Lakers sweep as well, even with the injuries.

    I say the Lakers will single-cover Paul and let him score all he wants while playing man-to-man for almost the entire series. Hard not to predict a sweep here.

    LA does not look ready to play. DJ Mbenga and Aaron Gray are beating them up.

    Did not expect such a lackadaisical start from the Lakers, and I did not expect such physical play from new Orleans. They came out looking to hit people.

    Chris Paul is still the best passer in the NBA. Wow, that was spectacular.
