Should be one of the better WCFs in quite some time IMO. A really great match up between the CLEAR two best teams in the West.

I'm not sure who I'm pulling for...I don't dislike either team. I'm just hoping for some good basketball.

I added a poll for fun. I'm gonna predict Thunder in 6. But I'm as unsure of that prediction as any prediction I've made in forever....

05-27-2012, 12:04 PM
I feel that OKC wins the series but I would like the spurs to win the west. Spurs protect home court and then OKC wins 3 games in a row; thats all I got lol

TylerSL
05-27-2012, 12:06 PM
This series is going to be one for the AGES. IMO going game 7 easy. The Spurs have won 18 straight, and are 8-0 in the postseason. Spurs are on no pushovers. IMO unless something major changes, this is the last year in a long time anybody challenges OKC in the West. My prediction, Spurs in 7.

All it takes is a couple of trades to change that...

Howard could be traded out west ...etc

Thunder win today by 1. Gary Neal takes a contested 3 at the buzzer off a kick out from parker and spurs lose game 1.

kdspurman
05-27-2012, 12:32 PM
Nervous about OKC coming in and stealing Game 1... Both teams have had a ton of rest these playoffs.

An interesting stat I found however:

"when you take out games the Spurs tanked, they're record really starts looking good. In the last 47 games Tony Parker played, for instance, they're 43-4. It took them 47 games to lose four times with Parker" (Per John Hollinger Per Diem)

The Heat would definitely want to avoid the Spurs over the Thunder

Another fact, Fisher is trying to make his 8th trip to the finals and win his 6th title while Duncan is going for his 5th finals and 5th title.

You want the Heat to face the Spurs and the Thunder??? whats wrong with chu boy...

Naw the Spurs are too damn complete of a team fella... They have the big man, they have the driving point guard, they have shooters that don't miss, the coach, it's the perfect team... Y'all picked a bad time to go to the finals with this Spurs team out here.

but we got superstars blah blah blah....

Just because the Thunder looked impossible to stop in yall last meeting doesn't mean the !!!!!!!!!!!!!HEAT!!!!!!!!!! can't beat em... That's more of an incomplete team along with a bad coach against another incomplete team with a bad coach. Forget your O and you D, that's who the Heat want to play. It's their game, a good ol' fashion battle of the superstars

Anyway, Spurs in 5-6 --- a sweep wouldn't shock me none

Going to be an entertaining series! I got Spurs in 5/6 tho. Reaso why is that, I believe Spurs have a much better team overall, and if u looks at key players, I think Tony will outplay Westbrook, and Manu will outplay Harden. Although Durrant will still be a star, spurs are just too good, an 11-man rotation this deep in playoffs is unheard of, plus they got homecourt. Spurs in 5/6

4-11 is below westbrooks season average.
5-11 is below Durants average.
1-9 is incredibly below his average.

Combined that's about 5 baskets that should be made. That's at least 10 points...so how am I wrong?

5/11 is like 46%, and he has 13 points on top of that.

4/11 is really not that bad. He hit's a few shots and hell be over 50%


1/9 Like i said the only one really struggling. You also forget that they are playing against one of the best defensive teams, so their shooting percentage is bound to be worse than the average.

Also i can say the same thing about San Antonion. Tony Parker is 2/8 with only 8 points. Way below his season average, and they have 14 turnovers.

At the end of the day you have to give credit to the other team for their struggles. The fact is that it is a 1 point lead, so right now it's anybodies game.

And Parker isnt shooting well. Bottom line is the Spurs dont usually commit turnovers and they are down by one. Thunder didnt take advantage... How can you argue with that... Youre just proving my point. Missing shots when they have an opportunity. Now Pop is going to retool his gameplan and the Thunder is going to get a dose of some real Spurs ball.

Here is the difference in the game...

Spurs 5 FTA

Thunder 9 FTA

Spurs are shooting a better fg% 42% to 40% for the Thunder and the Spurs are out rebounding them 30 to 25. The difference in the game is clearly the calls the Thunder are getting. I look for more of this throughout the series as Stern is surely on the Thunders side. He wants a Durant Lebron match up in the finals for ratings and wants the Thunder instead of the Spurs for an easier match up for Lebron.
