Tulsa ... the team nobody wanted to play

Funny how a team that seemed to be struggling at times toward the end of the season became the team that no one else in the D-League playoffs wanted to face in the postseason.

The first-round matchups for the NBA D-League Playoffs were chosen Sunday. The Iowa Energy chose to face Utah in the first round, then Rio Grande Valley picked Reno and Austin selected Dakota. Stuck with no other option as the fourth seed, Sioux Falls gets to face Tulsa, which enters the postseason as the eighth seed. So much for the eighth seed being the "weakest," huh?

Tulsa and Sioux Falls faced each other five times in January, with Tulsa holding a 3-2 edge in the series, including a 2-1 record in Tulsa and 1-1 in Sioux Falls.

More to come on the playoffs as the week goes on...
