For that I admire them more than any other team I've watched during the playoffs.
I just hope they don't get blown out if they do lose

Wow! This was the best series of playoffs thus far. Durant came through and Westbrook finally played like a true pt. guard getting others involved instead of trying to take over and shoot too much. Congrats to the Thunder! I also gotta give props to the Grizz. They were a resilient team. Zach Randolph was a beast.

How was it the best series and Game 7 was a blow out? You are clearly a OKC homer

It was the only series this year to go 7 games. 2 OT games. Wins on the road by both teams. Game winning comebacks from huge deficits. Of course this was the best series so far this year.

Look at all of the other playoff games; THOSE were blowouts with no games going beyond six in their series. Why can't you act like class like the Grizzlies did in the loss?

It was a good series but I wish the Grizzlies had put up a better fight

They put up a hell of a good fight. They were the number 8 seed, playing most of their games on the road and they took the number 4 seed to 7 games. Memphis fans should be nothing but proud of their team.

They played good, hard, and they played with class, unlike the Lakers.

I have nothing but respect for the Grizzlies. And before you think I'm an OkC homer, I'm not. I'm a Mavs fan, but the Thunder run a close second. I'll have one of my teams playing in the finals one way or another.

Really these two team are very even. And the Grizzlies might have made a more formidable matchup against Dallas since they dominated them in the regular season.

I don't see OkC winning the series against Dallas, but stranger things have happened.

I on't want to hear nothing about they played with class and the lakers didn't because it's no comparison. Memphis is a 8th seed that reached Game 7 of the semi-finals and exceeded expectations. The Lakers were expected to three peat so of course there is going to be more frustrated when they were eliminated


Als Dallas will win the series in Game 4 or 5

Are you not a Sixers fan TVandSportsGuy? I see you're in Philadelphia, but that doesn't necessarily mean you're a Sixers fan.

Not that it would matter right now; I just take it you're a sports fan (which is good) and you've picked the team you want to go all the way.

That appears to be Memphis (great team and going to get even better). But who after that?


Who do you see winning the championship?

I don't see a team left that can beat the Mavs. The Mavs have 3 stars in ther starting five and 1 superstar coming off the bench and are too well balanced to lose to any team that's left.
