Most years, the regular season matchups between playoff opponents provide some hint of how a series might go. This year, Ken and Dan Clayton argue, you can throw out the four Jazz-Thunder games, all played before Christmas, and start fresh. They explain why, from a personnel standpoint, those games matter less, and they talk about the key advantages of each team as they approach the start of a best-of-7 series.
