Staying as the 5th seed instead of going after the 3rd seed.

I posted this earlier in the Miami-Indiana game recap. Just want to know what you guys think.


I think we have a chance albeit a small chance of going to the ECF even if we get the 5th seed. Imagine beating the Sixers in 6 games in the 1st round and beating the Bulls in 7 games in the 2nd round.

Come to think of it, we have a better chance of going to the ECF if we stayed on as the 5th seed than 3rd seed. We will avoid Miami in the 2nd round that way.

Your thoughts. Please be gentle. I know a lot (myself included) would really like homecourt advantage in the 1st round but I think what i wrote above can be done. Again, please be gentle.
