Series will start on Tuesday. How do you think this series will play out? I am going with Thunder in 6 though i can't say i'm too confident about it. The Mavs bring alot of firepower. I do think the winner of this series will win the NBA title.

I don't see the Thunder beating the Bulls or Miami if they make the finals, I can see the Mavs beating every team left in the playoffs though.... The best part of these playoffs has been the unpredictability factor.

Ahhh... I'll go Mavs in 6.

Yeah I see the Mavs going up 2-0 and then the Thunder scrapping it to 6 games - but Dallas prevailing

Mavs have too many scorers on the starting five, too many scorers coming off the bench, Chandler is long and Dirk is the best shooter in the NBA

Mavs in 4 or 5.

I'll be pushing for OKC all the way, but objectively I think the Mavs are a better team this year. Probably Mavs in 6.

Yep. The Thunder will win some titles, but I just don't think it'll be this year.

OKC beat the Memphis Grizzlies because they had the better shooting basketball team. That won't work against the Mavs unless they seriously step up their defense.

At this stage the Thunder just don't beat enough teams with their defense.
