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

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.

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.

Durant clutches it with a game winner even on an off night. Very tough shot as well.

So often in this game have Durant and Westbrook drove and beat their defenders, drawing others' attention only to dish it off to Ibaka for an easy basket.

Great ending. Durant didn't ball tonight but Westbrook and Harden picked him up.

What bothered me on the second to last possession from OKC was that Harden was so hell bent on giving the ball to Durant. He didn't even bother to look for Westbrook who was open and forced a pass that almost got stolen from VC. They could have sealed it a possession before. Nice to know OKC can win without Durant's best.
