---------------------------

Kevin Durant will win his first scoring title of his career this season, but wont be enough to dethrone the defending champs. Lakers in 5 games.

I'm going to go with the Lakers in 6. The Lakers are not playing their best ball entering the playoffs... That said I do not believe OKC can beat the lakers 4 games.... I think they will find away to pull out 2. One of the more interesting first round matchups.... I wished Durant and the thunder could have gotten the 7 or any other seed so they could have a chance in advancing out of the first round.

I like the Lakers in 7 in this one, the thunder are a bad match-up for the Lakers. They have the advantage in speed and athleticism. That's a combo that the Lakers haven't handled well this season.

Your right about the speed, but with Bynum being back in the starting lineup, I see them having issues with Bynum and Gasol... Plus with Lamar coming off the bench now the Lakers bench will really dominate the Thunders bench.

*Must Watch Series of the First Round

This is not the same Lakers they were last year and KD is ready to show what he's got in the Playoffs.

This series is gonna go 7, I want the Thunder to win, so I voted for the KD's.

Sefolosha is a good defender and can give Kobe fits. But that being said, Lakers in 5.

Durant and Westbrook will give the Lakers all kinds of fits.

But unfortunately, the Lakers will most likely find a way to win the series.
