Default WC PLAYOFFS RD 1 : (1)OKC THUNDER vs (8)HOU ROCKETS

STARTERS:

OKC

Russell Westbrook
Thabo Sefolosha
Kevin Durant
Serge Ibaka
Kendrick Perkins

HOU

Jeremy Lin
James Harden
Chandler Parsons
Greg Smith
Omer Asik

KEY ROTATION PLAYERS:

OKC

Reggie Jackson
Kevin Martin
Nick Collison

HOU

Patrick Beverley
Francisco Garcia
Carlos Delfino


Key Matchups:

This should be a very high scoring series hypothetically, but if OKC is the championship contender everyone thinks they are, they should be able to slow down and handle HOU easily. KD should be able to contain HOUs 2nd best player in Parsons, and the OKC team defence should be able to slow down Harden while being able to shut down the 3 point line. The only way I see this series being close is if Jeremy Lin really steps up and provides a lot of offence, which I dont really see happening as he hasnt shown he can do it consistently, well, ever.

PREDICTION:

OKC in 5

OKC in 5, just too good. Houston manages to win one at home.

OKC in 6. Houston was pretty solid at home, may take a couple.

Houston wins one at home, Harden goes off in road game, OKC wins in 6 though.

I really hope HOU can somehow find a way to win tonight. The more game 2 road wins the better. Problem is theyd likely have to hit 20 3's to pull one out in OKC.

Lin needs to step his game up.

That was annoying.

Westbrook needs to come off. It's game 2 in the first round, take a breather and get the knee checked out.
