The Breakdown:

Westbrook averaging 22 points and 8 assists and becoming an All-Star felt more like natural progression than it did a breakout, especially after his play against the Lakers in last season's playoffs and in the World Championships in the summer. He is still erratic at times, and probably turns it over too much, but is electric athletically and rapidly learning to play a position that some argue is toughest to master—the point guard spot. Lawson embraced a starting role when Chauncey Billups left, and although his energy suggests he’d be best served in spurts, he was terrific and consistent as a starter, 14 and 6 assists.

Advantage: Thunder

...................................Wilson Chandler ________l________l_______ Thabo Sefolosha

The Breakdown:

Perhaps the least exciting position battle, considering that these two occupy less glamorous roles but do them well. Sefolosha will guard your best offensive perimeter player and not need to be thrown the occasional offensive bone to maintain motivation. Chandler does everything well, nothing particularly great, and just seems like the right type of player to help coaches like a Karl or D’Antoni who are both at once structured and experimental. It’s hard to know how a healthy Aaron Afflalo (who played significant minutes exactly five times since March 3) would’ve affected Chandler, but he’ll get plenty of run in this series because of his versatility.

Advantage: Nuggets

..........................l.........Danilo Gallinari __________________________ Kevin Durant

The Breakdown:

Durant won his second straight scoring title but slowed after the All-Star break, scoring less and shooting just 43 percent. That’s hardly alarming, as “slowed” still represents 25 points per game and immeasurable star quality as we now become accustomed to his lofty standards; he may no longer be the league’s preeminent darling (Derrick Rose) in a league suddenly chock-full of likeable youngsters, but he has a desperation to impress in these big games that belies his reserved appearance. Gallinari is an intriguing player. Like Durant, he has great length and great range, will space the floor, and appears to have adequate offensive understanding. He’ll have good games in this series, but not with the impact or on the level of Durant.

Advantage: Thunder

........................l.............Kenyon Martin __________________________ Serge Ibaka

The Breakdown:

Ibaka is a fan favorite, still with an innocence about him, not yet corrupted by unreachable expectations or a bloated salary. He’s an athlete, a shot blocker, and gives the impression he’s got plenty to learn and will sufficiently apply it once he does. He benefitted immensely from Jeff Green’s departure, sliding to that big forward spot and giving the Thunder the type of balance and size the best teams have. Martin’s knees might be weary from frequent operations and years of leaping but he still provides a unique intangible: A cockiness/confidence/swagger that feeds his team emotionally. Not the player he once was, he’s still effective in stretches and will bang without fear.

Advantage: Thunder

............................................Nene _________________ll__________ Kendrick Perkins

The Breakdown:

As what appeared to be Boston’s chemistry and hope waned in the weeks after Perkins left, Perkins became something of a poster child for all that is underrated and important within the team, not talent or obvious athleticism, but stability, reliability, a locker room presence, and a physical intimidator. He gives Oklahoma City a post defender who will defend the bigs in the West—the Thunder simply didn’t have that before. Nene is one of the best centers, and has one of the best back stories, that no one talks about. His strength is his best asset so pitting him against Perkins for the entirety of a long series will be of interest. Nene has big hands, shoots a high percentage, and always seems to give 13-15 points, and 7-9 rebounds. He’ll be right there.

Advantage: Neither. It’s a tie.

Nuggets-Thunder Preview

By JEFF LATZKE
Posted Apr 26 2011 8:53PM
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) After he makes a big shot, Russell Westbrook likes to gesture with his hands as though they're pistols and then blow the pretend smoke away.

But did he get too trigger-happy in Game 4?

After Oklahoma City's All-Star point guard attempted 30 shots for just the third time in his career as the Denver Nuggets cut their series deficit to 3-1, even his coach thought so.

"You can't play great basketball every time. His heart and determination are always in the right spot. That's all I care about with Russell," Thunder coach Brooks said Tuesday.

"Did he take too many shots? Absolutely. But that being said, you learn from it and you move on and you get better from it. Russell is a player that will get better every year."

Brooks said that Westbrook wasn't the only Thunder player who didn't play at his best during a 104-101 loss in Denver on Monday night, and he found other reasons Oklahoma City didn't pull off the sweep than his point guard's high-volume shooting night.

Namely, defense.

The Thunder allowed the Nuggets their most points in six meetings this month, having won the previous five. Brooks wasn't happy with Oklahoma City's interior defense early, its 3-point defense in the second half and he saw too many fouls throughout.

"I would like to say that we're going to win every game and we're going to have multiple sweeps, but that's not the way this league works," Brooks said. "There's usually two teams that are trying to win, and they did.

"We knew that they were going to give us their best shot. They were a desperate team. ... Any athlete that has any self pride is not going to want to get beat by a team every time you play them."

Denver got a career playoff best 27 points from Ty Lawson and 18 second-half points from Danilo Gallinari in winning Game 4, sending the series back to Oklahoma City for Game 5 on Wednesday night.

"The mood's good right now. We got the monkey off our back and put it on theirs," Lawson said after the Nuggets arrived at their hotel Tuesday evening.

"So, we'll try to put a little pressure on them with a good game here and go back home."

At the Thunder's practice facility, Westbrook shrugged off suggestions that he took too many shots.

The only two other times he'd had more than 25 field goal attempts in a game came in a triple-overtime win at New Jersey this season that NBA scoring champion Kevin Durant missed with an ankle injury and a loss at Dallas two seasons ago when Durant left in the first quarter.

"Just another game," Westbrook said. "We didn't win as a team, and a tough loss for us."

Westbrook's frequent firing was highlighted when he missed three 3-pointers in the final minute with the Thunder within striking distance. He finished 0-for-7 from 3-point range and 12-for-30 overall, scoring 30 points.

Durant had 31 points on 8-for-18 shooting, making five of his six 3-point attempts, but wasn't about to call his teammate a ball hog.

"He's a star, too," Durant said. "You know, he's an All-Star, too. He's shown that he can win games for us. He did it before. I felt that I had to play my role."

Brooks said he'd consider 30 shots a lot in a game for any player on his team, but his primary complaint about Westbrook was location and not volume. Instead of attacking the basket, or even his best shooting range, Brooks thought Westbrook was settling too much for long jumpers.

"He's a terrific mid-range shooter and when he gets to that sweet spot, he knocks that down," Brooks said. "I don't look at Russell's game last night and say, `You know what? The sky is falling.' He's a terrific player. He has improved a lot, and he is going to get better.

"You're not seeing Russell at this level for the rest of his career. He will develop into a better player."

What Brooks wants just as much, though, is a return to Oklahoma City's strong defensive ways against Denver. The Thunder had held the Nuggets below 95 points in four of their six meetings this month, including a pair of 89-point outings by the NBA's highest-scoring team.

Denver shot 44 and 45 free throws in the two games on its home court in the series.

"I think we're definitely fouling too much," Brooks said. "I think they're averaging 40 free throws a game against us. That leads the league by 10. You want to do a better job of defending.

"I've always felt if you're a good defensive team, you're not fouling as much."

Just who should be the focal point of that defense could be in question on a Nuggets team without Carmelo Anthony. Joining Lawson and Gallinari with big games on Monday was J.R. Smith, who was benched in Game 2 for his role in Oklahoma City's blowout win.

Wilson Chandler, who has made just one of 14 shots in the last three games, took over Smith's spot on the sidelines in Game 4.

"That's the nature of NBA playoff basketball. No one's consistent in NBA playoff basketball," Nuggets coach George Karl said. "Some guys can get 40 one night and the next night they can be 4-for-20. That's adjustments, and the other team says, `No, you're not going to do that.'

"I think we have to be ready for that and the depth of our team's got to be ready for it, whoever gets the hot hand or the opportunity."

Agreed, unfortunately.

Durant shooting more + OKC getting calls at home is trouble for the Nuggets. If Afflalo plays 25+ mins, Felton plays 15 mins or less, and Chandler actually plays basketball instead of running around doing nothing......the Nuggets have a better chance.

Because when teams double team or hard defensive plays come for Durant and Westbrook there is no reason why Thabo shouldn't be able to knock down a corner shot or mid range jumper. Hide your offensive game. That way teams don't expect it and you burn them for leaving you open.

I just don't get how you are 24/7 in the game and you cannot have a total offensive game. Even if you don't use it.

I feel the same way with Rondo and the other guys that have zero offensive game at this level and they aren't rookies.
