This will be a pretty quick preview, so no jump today.
Onto the matchups...
PG: Kyle Lowry vs. Mo Williams:
Both of these guys can ball. Mo is a better shooter, but Lowry is the better point guard. Therefore, they're even.
SG: Kevin Martin vs. Daniel Gibson:
Joey Graham had been starting at the shooting guard spot, and then Boobie Gibson got the job as Byron Scott has tried to change it up.
SF: Shane Battier vs. Anthony Parker:
Parker is the Cavs' perimeter defender, and he's pretty similar to Shane. Not as good, of course, but younger.
PF: Luis Scola vs. Antawn Jamison:
J.J. Hickson was supposed to be the stud power forward, but he's been replaced by Jamison since Antawn's knee has become more healthy.
I still think Luis is better.
C: Chuck Hayes vs. Anderson Varejao:
Varejao reminds me of a more scrappy Joakim Noah. He can hit jump shots and is constantly being the energy guy for the Cavs.
Rockets: Brooks out, Yao out
Prediction: Rockets should win this
