Splits in the 2nd Round

Three of the Four Matchups for the Second Round have split games. With the exception of the darling Pistons, the visiting team has taken away home court. I was wondering if (not including the Pistons):
This years playoff teams are tougher matchups than last year?
This years matchups suck (that would include the Spurs)?
The seeding has helped to extend the length of the series?
The officials have helped extend the length of the series?
It is a fluke?
It is late and I don't know what I am trying to say?
Something else?
None of the above?

Not only that, but all 3 game 2s were blowout wins.

Which makes me feel better about our loss. However, how scary are the Pistons? It is like they aren't even breaking a sweat.

It's hard to work up a sweat playing cream puffs.

As a Mavs fan, I'm way more worried about the Spurs. I call this series the Virual Finals. If the Pistons played in the West they'd have 55 wins and a bunch of bruises. If the Spurs played in the East, you'd have 70 wins and total health.

The NBA is a business. Those advertising dollars are quite enticing.

The Pistons should have swept their way into the Finals. The teams they have played so far arent very good.

I think the new seeding has thrown alot of things out of whack, but at the end of the day.....you have to play and compete regardless of how jacked up the rules are.
