Game 1: Los Angeles Kings vs. Los Angeles Clippers

Lineups:

LAK: SS Anze Kopitar, RF Jeff Carter, P Dwight King, LF Matt Greene, 1B Drew Doughty, C Jonathan Quick, 3B Jordan Nolan, CF Dustin Brown, 2B Mike Richards — UTL Justin Williams, Jake Muzzin

LAC: SS Chris Paul, RF Antawn Jamison, CF Matt Barnes, LF DeAndre Jordan, 1B Byron Mullens, 3B Blake Griffin, P Jamal Crawford, 2B Reggie Bullock, C J. J. Reddick — UTL Ryan Hollins, Jared Dudley

Analysis:

This matchup may be the most intriguing on the entire bracket. The Kings feature a nice balance of speed and power in their lineup, with Kopitar playing short and in the leadoff spot, and Doughty manning first and hitting 5th. The Clippers have a young squad with a lot of guys that remind me of Jason Heyward and Domonic Brown. This team definitely has power. The X-factor for this game, however, may be Dwight King who will be on the hill for the Kings. He is a large left-hander who is a huge presence against this Clippers team.

 

Game 2: New York Islanders vs. New York Knicks

Lineups:

NYI: CF Kyle Okposo, 2B Thomas Vanek, SS John Tavares, 1B Matt Carkner, LF Brock Nielsen, RF Matt Martin, 3B Cal Clutterbuck, C Evgeni Nabokov, P Frans Nielsen — UTL Pierre Marc-Bouchard, Lubomir Visnovsky

NYK: SS J. R. Smith, RF Tim Hardaway, Jr., CF Carmelo Anthony, LF Tyson Chandler, 1B Metta World Piece, 3B Kenyon Martin, 2B Raymond Felton, P Cole Aldrich, C Iman Shumpert — UTL Pablo Prigioni, Amar’e Stoudemire

Analysis:

We’ve already gotten some heat over not having the Knicks match up with the Rangers. The reason for this match up is we think these two teams match up better, and they wear the same colors. Which is cool. Both this Islanders and Knicks team possess a great deal of speed, and the difference maker may come down to pitching, which also matches up well. We have F. Nielson taking the mound for the Islanders, and Aldrich for the Knicks. We imagine Nielson as the type of pitcher who always hits his spots, while Aldrich is more of a power pitcher similar to a Max Scherzer.
