Ball Don't Lie's Two-on-Two All-Star Tournament moves to the Western Conference bracket. (No idea what I'm talking about? Click here.) Quick note: First-round match-ups were determined based on the teams' conference records as of Feb. 7 ...
Another phenomenal first round match-up: Chris Paul and David West vs. Kevin Durant and Jeff Green. Last week, when we slammed down the quarters, many of you picked the Hornets to win this entire 32-team tournament. Makes sense. With CP3 runnin' the show and D-West choppin' heads, they very well could. But first they'll have to get by this pesky, young Thunder duo. Could Durant be too much of a one-on-one nightmare? You tell me.
A reminder of our hypothetical rules: half-court, offense calls the fouls, "winners out" to eleven (by ones and twos, natch), and you've got to win by two. Also, no jeans allowed.
And if you're in a creative mood, leave us a short description of how you see this game unfolding. Who jumps out to the early lead? Who nails the game winner? We'll include the best write-ups in the next round.
Voting will remain open until late Tuesday night.
