There is no doubt that Stan Van Gundy is a champ.
Orlando is somewhat like the Bulls, not in style of play, but both teams depend heavily on one player to persevere through any obstacles they will face (Dwight Howard and Derrick Rose respectively).
Orlando is too streaky of a team. When Howard cannot function down low, they throw up deep shots and are either on fire or build a new stadium with all of their bricks.
Predominantly jump-shooting teams tend to struggle in long series, which is what I think the Hawks-Magic series will be.
But then again, Al Horford won't shut down Howard. Dwight will persevere through the first round, as long as his team gives him some help. But then Joakim Noah's defense will be looming in Chicago, unless the Pacers pull off a miracle.
