A reason to cheer for the Mavericks: Since losing to the Heat in the NBA Finals in 2006, the Mavs have gone out in the first round two years in a row. Last year, it resulted in the firing of head coach Avery Johnson. Owner Mark Cuban is certainly hoping Dirk Nowitzki and Co. come out with more fire in their bellies this post-season, and it should be interesting to see if they come up short again or pull out the toughness required to make it deeper.

Players to Watch: Dirk Nowitzki, Jason Terry, Josh Howard, Jason Kidd

A reason to cheer for the Spurs: The Spurs' franchise is a picture of consistency, having won six division titles, four conference titles and four championships between 1999 and 2007. Can Tim Duncan and Co. add another trophy to the mantle? Duncan and Gregg Popovich each have four championship rings, while three others Spurs players have three each. If experience and consistency are the name of the game, the Spurs are the cream of the crop. The flip side of that is that players are getting older. While the Spurs' slow, steady style of play is tailor-made for playoff basketball, they have been bothered this year by health issues and inconsistency.

Players to Watch: Tony Parker, Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, Roger Mason
