    Nike's Match-ups to watch:
    Nolan Smith Vs Ricky Rubio
    two of the young premiere PG in the NBA look to put on a show for the world. Nolan Smith exploded onto the scene this year putting up great numbers all year long. It seemed all year the better the opposing PG the better Nolan played trying to prove he is the best in the league. On the other side Ricky improved on his great rookie season in almost every category. While Nolan didn't have to do much against the Lakers Ricky was putting on a clinic against the Clipper going over 30pts in 3 games including a 52 pt outburst in Gm 5.

    Lamarcus Aldridge Vs Kevin Love
    This matchup was won by Kevin Love in the regular season. Lamarcus needs to atleast work on the glass especially if his offensive game is not on. Kevin Love is a very dangerous player that can take advantage with his long shooting range. LA will need to keep close and make sure Love doesn't have any quality looks from long range.

    Nicolas Batum
    Usually its Nic's Offense that the Blazers want to talk about, but in this series it will be on how he covers Michael Beasly on the Defensive Side. Beasley is a great all-around scorer so Batum will have his hands full all series

    Prediction
    The Blazers won both regular season games, but both games were very close. This should be a great series against Divison rivals, but Portland takes it in 6.

    If this series goes more than 5 games, I will be satisfied.
