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

While I think Dallas will show their veteran grit as defending champions and give the Thunder a true test of a series, I dont expect them to win. Give me OKC in 7 games. It wont be easy for them, but their homecourt advantage and youthful legs will give them the edge over a Dallas team that seems comfortable with being "one hit wonders".

Had no idea Azubuike was on Dallas.

Thunder in 6. Love their energy at home. Wonder how much Harden will be affected by his concussion.

Damn Westbrook off to a good start, good sign. Because when he is off he often keeps shooting.

What the hell is Perkins doing leading the fast break.

Westbrook has been playing and shooting much better this year IMO

Ibaka 3 at the end of the half to cut it to 3. Thunder need to step it up and Durant has been slowly getting it going after a slow start.

Very unselfish play by Westbrook. I actually thought he'd throw it off the backboard.

Westbrook doing it all. Scoring, rebounding, and most importantly distributing. When he is confident and playing within himself he is tough to stop.

What a difficult And1 by Westbrook. Great game so far for "Mr. Why Not?."

Thunder's defense has whats gotten them back in this game.
