Default EC PLAYOFFS; ROUND 1: (3)ATL HAWKS V (6) MIL BUCKS

STARTERS:

ATL

Mike Bibby
Joe Johnson
Marvin Williams
Josh Smith
Al Horford

MIL

Brandon Jennings
John Salmons
Carlos Delfino
Luc Mbah A Moute
Kurt Thomas


KEY ROTATION PLAYERS:

ATL

Jamal Crawford
Mo Evans
Zaza Pachulia

MIL

Luke Ridnour
Jerry Stackhouse
Ersan Ilyasova


Key Matchups:

MIL halfcourt game. Can MIL muster up enough points to keep the series compettitive?

Brandon Jennings. Hes gonna have to have an epic series for them to even win game 3.

This would have been a much funner matchup if Bogut was healthy. Bucks would actually have a shot. ATLs talent just wins out by a long shot in what should be the biggest snoozer of a series in the 1st rd. Both teams play hard defence which is good, but when you have those styles going against eachother where both teams also play at a slow pace its gonna make for some ugly basketball games.


PREDICTION:

ATL in 5. MIL will win game 3 and make everyone question ATL.

Bucks will win at least 2 games,IMO..

If Bogut was healthy they would have upset Atlanta..

No poll on this one either?

I really like the Bucks because they're a very scrappy team, but they're gonna miss Bogut a lot in this series, and it's only a matter of time before Cinderella turns back into a pauper.

Atlanta in 5

Brandon Jennings is an overrated balloon. He is not a key player or anything like that. Nevertheless, Milwaukee might win 1 or 2 games because of the hustle&energy they bring.

Hawks in five. Atlanta just has such a lopsided skill, talent and physical advantage without Bogut going to work down low.

The Bucks are in for some pretty lopsided losses if they only have 2 guys on the floor that can score, and one of them is a below 40 percent guy in Jennings.

Put Ridnour and Stackhouse on and see what you can do.

ATL in 5. Milwaukee just can't win a series against the Hawks, esp. with Bogut out. Bucks may get 1 on their own homecourt though

I will correct myself - Hawks in four. This is hard to watch.

The most interesting first round series in the East will be Miami/Boston. Aside from that we're looking at a bunch of shit shows until the second round.

I think with Larry Browns genius, the CHA series could get interesting. This one even Skiles cant save, not enough offensive talent on the floor.
