NBA Western Conference Finals Preview: Thunder vs.Spurs
Western Conference Finals Preview
Match-Up: Oklahoma City Thunder vs. San Antonio Spurs
Breakdown: The number one and number two seeds in the West are about to get it on in what may prove to be the best series of the post-season.
These teams run at different speeds so it will in theory come down to a battle of wills.
The billboard showdown is Russell Westbrook vs. Tony Parker. Of course how they face-off against each other will be a huge factor in how this series plays out.
If they cancel each other out then regardless of position you have to look at whether or not Kevin Durant or Tim Duncan is playing better basketball.
Those numbers will most likely always favor Durant and down where the dirty work gets done Boris Diaw will have his hands full with Kendrick Perkins.
Throughout this process the Spurs haven’t really been tested having taken out the lowly Jazz and a weary Clippers team.
The Thunder on the other hand rolled over both the Mavericks and the Lakers and have the hot hand.
As for the x-factors James Harden should produce more for the ghostly Manu Ginobili who hasn’t really done much since the regular season.
Prediction: Thunder in a tight six.
