Polladaday: Upset in the West?

We don’t know the exact seedings yet, but we do know which four teams will be locked in at 5-8 in the West when the season closes. Which of them has the best chance to move through to the second round?

Which Western Conference team is most likely to pull a first-round upset?

    toss up between nuggets and blazers really… but the nuggets are likely facing OKC and they are just scary this year…

    Spurs & lakers vs. grizz or hornets no upset possible. The thunder will beat the nuggets, so only the blazers can do it against Dallas.


    The Blazers are another DANGEROUS 6 seed. One capable of making a deep run in the 2011 real season. I know for a fact these Lakers don’t play well at the Rose Garden and would hate to see the Blazers in the 2nd round. Just putting that out there.

    Never bet against a healthy-ish Chris Paul.

    Are you kidding me. Thanks to all of you who said the Blazers. Lakers are 5 and 20 in the rose Garden and we dont want to even see them until we have to because the Blazers love to play the Lakers but theyre tough.. Grizzlies have no Chance. Maybe the nuggets but Blazers with the biggest shot at it

    being a huge Blazer fan I gotta say the Blazers. If we face the mavs we can beat them for sure

    Best chance is Grizzlies against the smaller frontline of the Spurs. Unless the Nuggets match up against Dallas…

    I like the Nuggets over the Thunder, and possibly the Grizzlies over the Mavericks….Mavs just ain’t built for that playoff grime, Tyson Chandler can’t fix all of that by his lonesome…..man what if Rudy Gay was healthy…PROBLEM
