Debating Which 1st Round Playoff Series Will be Most Entertaining

So, it's FINALLY playoff time!!! All the match ups are now set and the first round kicks off Saturday. So, which playoff series is worth watching?

Of all the first round series, the Portland-Houston series will probably be the most fun to watch (of first round series only). These teams are going to go at it: the Rose Garden will be rocking; Brandon Roy and Lamarcus Aldridge will face off against Yao, Artest and crew.

This is the match up that I feel could go six or seven games. Both teams are real solid, they play well on both ends, are well coached and make for a very fun game. I can't predict a winner here, that's why I like it the most.

I would like to say Portland can win because they have home court advantage, but then I think of how hard Houston fights at times and how it doesn't matter where they are playing. When I think of how dominant Yao can be on offense for them, I like Houston. I'm torn on this series.

So, the Blazers-Rockets series looks like the most entertaining first round series. What series do you think will be the most entertaining?
