Boston should be favored by virtue of their path

They’re probably the third best team
Maybe you're right I've been selling them short this whole time but that's because I don't trust them to win a best of seven series against a really good team which I think both Minnesota and Dallas are both good teams.

I would not be surprised if they end up winning the whole thing and if they do , it is an embarrassment for the league.
I still think a team from the West is winning this thing but I don't trust Boston further than I can throw them. They have choked so many times in the past and they have a tendency to let teams hang around instead of putting them away. I feel like either Minnesota or Dallas can beat them because they have that killer instinct that Boston lacks.

I’ll raise you one million dollars and offer up last years Nuggets. How soon we forget. Denver played a play in 8th seed, a play in 7th seed in the WCF and a play in finals opponent. It doesn’t get any easier than that.

Those teams were better than their seeds though

Lakers last year would handle this Pacers team

The Pacers are pretty on par with the 2021 Hawks that got to the ECF

That was a very bizarre year looking back. Bucks/Suns final lol

Teams approach the regular season differently

Mavs were obviously top 2 team in the west but were in the 5 spot

Teams don’t go all out in the regular season. So can’t just analyze but what their seed is
You have to remember the Mavs were a very different team before they made the in season acquistions of PJ Washington and Daniel Gafford. Minnesota went 3-1 vs Dallas in the regular season but they didn't face them after they made those moves. They're much better defensively now and have a legit third scorer in PJ Washington that they didn't have before.
