After that great performance by CP3 in game four, the Lakers begin to play swarming defense on him, often crowding him with the likes of Gasol and Artest. In one instance they forced him to step out of bounds. It was nice strategy which kept him out of his rythym.

That's exactly right. When I learned what we did after being only a Courtney Lee layup and a few DH12 freethrows away from being up 3-1 on the Lakers in the 2009 Finals, I nearly died. If it aint broke, don't fix it.

So Portland didn't win. Do you think Dallas even has a prayer against the Lakers?

Why not? Did the Lakers suddenly become invincible now?

So basically it will be Lakers vs Thunder in the WCF and Bulls vs Celtics in the ECF.

I think Stern wants to see Bulls/Lakers Finals.


What Stern doesn't want to see in the Finals?

Thunder vs Hawks

I think the Thunder have a shot. Depends on how much Westbrook can exploit the matchup with Fisher, on how much Perkins will bring to the table, on whether Durant can match Kobe's determination in the clutch, on whether or not Durant and Westbrook can come to some consensus on who's the first option( umm why is this even a debate??!)... alot of things would need to go right, but I think the Thunder have the ability to make it one hell of a series...
