Or just a calculated loss, that they'd rather face Houston and they're less talented bigs and closer proximity of travel for the first round? And on a side note, Blake and Jamison go a combined 36..... How often has that and will that happen? That was a contribute to Kobe game, plus Howard had one of his best games in a while.
