NBA fans are geared up about the start of the playoffs, but the series between Indiana and Orlando feature two teams headed in opposite directions and is one series that could end quickly.
The Pacers lost three of their four games against the Magic this season, but an injury to All-Star center Dwight Howard and could spell an early exit for Orlando.
Indiana is led by forward Danny Granger, who averaged over 19 points per game against the Magic and is now the main weapon for the Pacers offense. Indiana also plays terrific defense and is one of the best rebounding teams in the league and that all adds up to a win in four or five games, but strange things happen in the playoffs, just ask the Bulls about last year.
Orlando enters the first round losers of four of their last five games and the only win came at home against the lowly Charlotte Bobcats, but their starting five have played some good basketball. The bench for Orlando has little depth and that could spell trouble in a series against a deep team like Indiana.
The NBA Playoffs have several good opening series, but this one appears a bit one-sided. Indiana has home-court advantage and a deeper team, making a sweep possible and a win in six games highly likely.
