Time to start thinking matchups

OK, with the return of LA and the last 2 victories, our magic # to clinic a playoff spot sits at 4, and with 8 to go and 6 at home, we should be in good shape. Given that we will not get homecourt advantage and assuming that LA continues to work his way back into shape and is effective, the question is who would you rather face in the first round? THe Spurs are by far the best coached and playing great, but we often play them well. The Thunder have KD but again, we play them close and match up very well with them. The Clippers are deep, have a lot of talent, but have a habit of underperforming in the playoffs (we'll see if Doc Rivers changes that) and the Rockets have been a horrible matchup for us for years it seems, but they are the most flawed, and now may be without Beverly who gives Lillard fits. So, who would you want to face?
