The most intriguing matchup will be the Washington Wizards and the Indiana Pacers as it’s the series that the Pacers may not be able to drag themselves through the way they did against the Atlanta Hawks. It’s been said that the Pacers won the series against Atlanta simply because someone had to, while the Wizards looked sharp against a Bulls team that was hobbled but still a force.

Miami and Brooklyn meeting is a matchup we were expecting to see and it’s going to be a thrilling series to say the least. If the Wizards-Pacers series is intriguing, then the Heat-Nets series is sure to not skimp on the entertainment.
