Are Mavs the team to face in the first round?

For those who don't have Insider, Hollinger's article basically says that the Mavs don't appear to be anywhere near as good as their record, and implies that LA, Denver, and Utah are all contenders, while Dallas isn't. He also notes that Dallas will most likely lock up the #2 seed due to a very favorable schedule over their next 7 games. Looking at the current standings, it seems pretty likely that the Blazers will have either the 7th or 8th seed in the West. OKC and Phoenix have a pretty considerable lead on us when you look at the losses column. I know it's still early, but I think I'm going to start cheering for a 2/7 matchup with Dallas. It looks like our best bet to get out of the opening round. After getting hosed with the seedings last year, lets hope the Blazers catch a break (not literally, knock on wood), this year. I don't think Dallas is a great matchup for us, despite our record against them this year, but I would rather face them than Utah, Denver, or LA.
