Nuggets-Thunder Preview

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- After two run-ins with Denver center Nene late in the season, Oklahoma City's Kendrick Perkins hesitated for a moment when asked Saturday what he expected from the matchup in the playoffs.

The two big men were literally face to face -- foreheads pressed against each other -- in Denver less than two weeks ago, then Nene had to push his way out of a Perkins headlock in a rematch three days later in Oklahoma City.

When the teams play again Sunday night in Game 1, there's almost an expectation that the two will butt heads again.

"Is this a trick question?" Perkins asked. "I don't know. I don't know what to expect."

The Thunder brought in Perkins for times like these.

A stout defender in the low post, he brings the youthful Thunder a load of playoff experience. While most of his teammates have never made it out of the first round, Perkins has won an NBA title in Boston and went back to the finals last season.

He wasn't even healthy when Oklahoma City sent away two starters to get him from Boston at the trade deadline. All he talked about was getting enough games under his belt so he could be ready when the playoffs started.

The Thunder went 13-4 with him in the lineup, with Serge Ibaka moving from backup center to starting power forward.

"He gives them a defensive presence that they didn't have, and I think the combination of Ibaka moving in a good direction and him coming in, that's a strong play," Denver coach George Karl said last week. "Defensively, it's a strong play."

Before the trade deadline, Nick Collison and Thabo Sefolosha were Oklahoma City's only players who had ever advanced in the postseason -- each reaching the second round once. The Thunder added Perkins and Nate Robinson in the deal with the Celtics, plus Nazr Mohammed -- who won a title in San Antonio -- from Charlotte.

"With Perk, Nazr and Nate, they bring experience, they bring in some defensive toughness, but we still have to do our job," coach Scott Brooks said. "Guys have to play their roles and do it well, and we have to continue to stick together as a team, and I see that happening.

"We're not going to change that now that the playoffs are here."

Perkins isn't changing either, saying he's not making anything personal with Nene, despite what happened in their previous meetings.

"I haven't played against him enough. I've just played against him in two games," Perkins said. "I just know I'm a physical guy, so I like to play physical. And I know one thing about playing physical is that you've got to be willing to get hit back sometimes.

"I'm just going to go out there and do what I'm doing. I can't worry about what Nene's doing."

And he's certainly not ruling out any more heated exchanges.

"I think all playoff games get a little chippy," Perkins said. "This one's not going to be any different. I think when it's playoff time, you get a couple hard fouls. Guys are going a little harder because guys are not trying to go home.

"I think if we was playing whoever, it would get a little chippy."

Perkins made it clear after the first clash with Nene that he didn't plan to back down.

"At the end of day, I've got my guys' back 110 percent," Perkins said the next day. "I'm not out there trying to be tough. I'm not out there acting any kind of way.

"It's just who I am. That's just how I carry myself."

The Thunder don't need anymore time to gel. This is their year. Thunder in 5.

Tough break for the Nuggets because they could have given the Spurs or Mavs a tough series. Ironically a worse seed is their worst matchup.

i like Denver's chances in this one, but who do they go to in the dying seconds in a close game? Smith? Galinari?

If Denver can win one on the road in the first two games, Denver is going to win this in 6.

I would be lying if I said I wasn't excited for this matchup and possibly the best one out of all of them going.

So if one person gets scraped lightly across the arm and you want to call a foul then call a foul when others get their arms scraped...no matter how much of a scrub that player is.

Lol hey trust me Rose will next year. It already started yesterday. I mean in the first 2 1/4 years of Rose's career he wasn't getting calls most players would get. He attacked the basket yesterday and they had to call a foul. No one can guard him when he wants to get to the rim. Next year Rose will be around 28 ppg.

As for the Thunder they have a couple guys that get to the line and it has to do with the Durant effect. The refs HAVE to blow their loads on most OKC possessions, but if Durant didn't touch the ball or take a shot then a whistle is going to sound. Hence, the Durant effect.

I have seen a little more than 12 OKC games this year. They play so fast sometimes. They remind me of an up and coming team that plays out of its mind, but then for whatever reason comes up short. Those Sacramento teams were exciting like this (w/o the dominant player of Durant's caliber).
