    Who would win an OKC vs Clippers series?

    Both teams have their teams intact. Billups returns as the starting SG, Hill is healthy on the bench.

    For a recent history Kevin Durant has shot around 40 percent from the field, 33 percent from deep the last 3 years against the Clippers. Westbrook has also struggled vs the Clippers the last 3+ seasons. This year the Clippers lost in OT in OKC but the year before they were 3-1 against the Thunder.


    Jordan
    Griffin
    Butler
    Billups
    Paul

    Key bench players: Barnes, Hill, Crawford, Odom, Bledsoe, Turiaf.

    vs

    Perkins
    Ibaka
    Durant
    Sefalosha
    Westbrook


    Key bench players: Kevin Martin, Collison, Maynor.



    I think Clippers in 7. Not only do their strengths happen to be OKC's weaknesses but they are the only team with 3 capable defensive SF's to throw at Durant all game long. OKC's biggest weakness such as turnovers, happens to play into the Clippers strengths like steals, forced turnovers and points off turnovers. OKC ranks 29th in turnovers per game, Clippers rank 1st in steals, 1st in turnovers 1st, 1st in points off turnovers for example. I'll post the most important stats below.


    Thunder team rankings:

    -1st ranked offense
    -8th ranked defense
    -17th in points in the paint
    -5th in fastbreak points per game
    -1st in 3 point shooting percentage
    -18th in rebounds per game
    - 2nd in blocks per game
    - 9th in steals per game
    - 16th in assists per game
    - 29th in turnovers per game



    Clippers team rankings:

    - 4th ranked offense
    - 3rd ranked defense
    - 3rd ranked points in the paint
    - 4th in fastbreak points per game
    - 18th in 3 point shooting percentage
    - 15th in rebounds per game
    - 7th in blocks per game
    - 1st in steals per game
    - 2nd in assists per game
    - 11th in turnovers per game

    Thunder are better, better coached and much more experienced in the playoffs

    You wanna match OKC recent playoff experience against clippers sounds good.. People under estimated OKC bench I challenge anyone to beat It. Get billups and hill back sounds great find minutes for all your players without someone being rattled... OKC plays as a well rounded unit now.. add two 20+ minute players to your roster and see how well everything works out, bet odom puts those 25 lbs back on.

    Tough to say who has HCA since both will likely finish 1-3 in the standings. At that point is it determined by H2H record or flat out seeding? BTW another thing to note is the team efficiency spread.

    OKC has the 1st ranked offense, 8th ranked defense. Clippers are the 4th ranked offense, 3rd ranked defense. That doesn't mention that the Clippers are missing two huge defensive upgrades in Hill and Billups (Butler and Green are ATROCIOUS defenders).

    Clippers no Hill or Billups all year and resting starters most 4th quarters. Should have fresher legs than the Thunder who play KD 40 minutes a night regularly.

    IMO the team that wins 4 games before the other team is able to conjure up 4 wins in a 7 game series would win. In order to do that the said 4 win team would have to outscore the other team in 4 of the games in that series.

    Right now I would have to give the slight edge to the Clippers.
