Arrow Battle For The 3rd Seed: CLEVELAND (49-30) @ PHILLY GT (48-30)



HUGE GAME.

Winner gets a depleted Celtics in the 2nd round (or the 7th seed).

3rd seed is a golden ticket to the ECF.

HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE game.

Sixers are huge underdogs.

No Joel. Dario doubtful.

But NOBODY thought they would be playing for the 3rd seed at this stage.

Important game for possibly Miami too if they remain the 6th seed. I guess the Sixers would be easier since they lack the experience, but it will be a tough series either way.

If the Sixers win this game, they're going to the Finals. If they lose, it doesn't mean they aren't... will just be a harder route.

If I'm the Cavs, would you consider tanking to drop to the 4/5 seed and potentially matchup with Toronto?

No. Toronto and Philly are their biggest challengers. They can handle Indiana, Miami, and Washington with ease. They need homecourt more than any team.

Well, considering there's like 10 threads on how LeBron owns the Raptors..... how much does that compare to the potential Lue/Brad Stevens coaching mismatch?

Boston will be tough, but they're depleted. They're relying on a rookie and a sophomore to lead them in the playoffs (Horford isnt first option material if we're being honest) Theu might steal a game or two from tactics alone but talent wise they're the worst team in the NBA going into the playoffs besides maybe Miami.

Toronto's depth and Philly's top-heavy talent are the only real threats to LeBron missing the Finals, especially considering their advantages on the home court. Philly and Toronto have some of the craziest atmospheres, this regular season is crucial for both teams.
