With everybody in the Dime office in tournament/bracket mode, yesterday we tipped off our hypothetical 2-on-2 NBA Jam-style pro tourney. The rules: Game to 21 by ones and twos, make-it-take-it, higher seed gets the ball first, current injuries are wiped off the table.

Going by Dime’s most recent NBA Hit List rankings, here’s how the second half of the first-round matchups look:
