Based strictly on talent and relative health, the Thunder should sweep. I just have too much faith in Carlisle and Dirk to think they won't get a game or two.

Thunder drop a meaningless game in an otherwise pretty routine series victory. Russell Westbrook gets angry at rims, etc. etc.

How many triple doubles does RW get in this series? I'm going with two.

Yep. Carlisle's too good of a coach to not win one game. Plus, JJ Barea's bound to go off at least once or twice. Still should be a fairly quick and easy series, though.

Barea is going to do everything he can to bother Westbrook. Remember, earlier this season Westbrook was ejected in a game after getting into it with Barea. Wouldn't be surprised if Barea did something to get Westbrook to react again.

38 point victory. Mavericks are really outmatched, but I hate huge blowouts because they're almost always followed by really competitive games.

Watched the recording of this. Well, that was a waste of time.

Dallas is a team full of champions and competitors. This game being close surprises me none. Just need to maintain a small lead and put them away.

Wow. What an ending! Thought the Mavericks were gonna become stagnant offensively given the lack of offense but somehow they pulled it out. That's already more than I expected out of this series.

Impressed by Dallas, but it doesn't mean anything in the grand scheme of things. No chance of winning this series.
