Both teams have clinched their respective seeds so this match-up is a lock.

Who do you got in this series?

Houston will comfortably win. Westbrook can't keep up with that offense.

Sadly, this. The two teams which OKC struggles the most are the Rockets and the Warriors, mostly due to their 3pt spam heavy game. Simply impossible for the thunder to keep up. Our only chance is if harden has his classic yearly playoffs meltdown.

Houston massively overachieved when they were like 31-6 or whatever it was

OKC and Houston both have very similar records in the past 3 months or so like .550 for both. Oladipo and Kanter missed alot of games and Taj and Doug got to the team late too. The last matchup wasnt close but all the others were

Russ is the best player in the series by a good amount, Har_en is a playoff choker and Russ clutch play can win it combined with the great defense of the rest of the cast.

Russel won atleast 10/15 games with late game heroics this season. OKC losing vs the Rockets unless playoff Harden

04-09-2017, 09:26 PM
I'm gonna go with OKC in 6 or 7. Lou Williams shrivels in the playoffs and so does Harden. I would be surprised if the Rockets offense is anywhere near as productive in the postseason, especially from 3. Meanwhile, Adams and Russ generally play great in the postseason, so while I expect a close series, I expect OKC to take it.

I think Rockets win this series in 6 or 7 as long as Harden's injury isn't serious which it probably isn't. That being said Adams might come alive and be the third best player in this series and if that's the case OKC has a good shot.

EDIT: I tried renaming the thread but couldn't do it. Mods please rename the thread to something more official since there's been some complaints.

Thunder in 7. This will be the toughest first round series IMO.

bdreason

Houston in 5.

I think all the games will be competitive, but the Thunders 3pnt defense is horrendous. Maybe the Rockets go cold for a couple games, but I think they have too many good shooters to go cold for an entire series.

What might be the most exciting first round matchup in years, this will determine the MVP conversation for years to come, even though that award is for the regular season alone. It all comes down to whether the Thunder can slow down the Rockets' unlimited three point shooting barrage. If Anderson, Ariza, Gordon, Williams are all hot, this will not go seven games.
Houston in six

How will this determine the MVP if the difference in the series is Houstons 3 point shooting.

OKC has little chance but they do have the advantage in the front court so if Russ can slow the game down they could at least win 2 of their home games.

I see Houston in 6.

It's hard to bet on the non 3point shooting team in this day and age, with this much disparity. Houston has made almost 200 more 3s than Golden state this year and they're playing one of the worst 3 point shooting teams in the league.

Styles make fights. Look what happened last year when thunder bully balled golden state into a 1-3 hole...we stbrook running like a maniac into the paint and all big guys crashing towards the rim many times can tire an opponent out, and farther the shot the more dramatic effect it will have. I hope it is a close series.

The same reason we credit superstars with playoff victories over their rivals? :confusedshrug:

The key difference will be three point shooting, but the casual fan and future generations will only see who wins or who went home.

Russ is definitely the MVP, but got the Rockets in either 5 or 6 games. Better bench and supporting cast

OKC in 6.

Houston obviously wins the talent disparity, but it is surmountable enough depending on which team's role-players step up in the playoffs; that's where it gets interesting with Billy Donovan walking around OKC's coaching box, since coaching tends to be at the fulcrum of that. We saw a completely different dynamic with OKC in the playoffs last year compared to the regular season, which is mainly attributable to him.

Donovan's only glaring flaw is that he lets Westbrook take the driver's seat far too often in late-game stretches, but that hasn't been as intractable as it was last year when Kevin Durant was aboard.

Houston should still be favored on-paper; but due to coaching discrepancies and leadership discrepancies between the two leaders, I'm not ready to believe that it will completely translate into a practical reality.

That being said, this will be a great match-up. It's seldom enough that the two leading MVP candidates intersect in a playoffs match-up, yet it's happening in the first round this year. :applause:

Meh, if you like the roundness and arbitrary nature of the term triple double.

McGrady's 2003
Kobe's 2003
Kobe's 2006
Wade's 2009
LeBron's 2008
LeBron's 2009
LeBron's 2010

All done without the same asinine usage rate, ball dominance, pace, team padded numbers. Much more efficient scoring seasons with way less turnovers.

And probably will either play better in the playoffs or drag their teams farther. Also played better defense in almost all those cases.

Doesn't take away from the fact that he still generated 56.2 ppg (most by any player). He took what he had and used it to its full effect. That's why the offense was as successful as it was. He made his teammates better while scoring nearly 30 ppg. You can't just surround any star with good shooters and expect them to be one of the best teams in the league.

Right on the dot. Harden makes the team's core look better. He's great at finding open shooters and very good at the pick n' roll with Capela and Nene.

yup stacked isnt a term that should be used so loosely. but yes warriors are stacked which is why they are in great contention to take it all, while the rockets not so much. rockets are solid and are really just playing better than they should be cause harden is playing at an mvp level right now. its really as simple as that.

The way Harden abused Kanter, I don't think they can have him on the court against teams like the Rockets or Warriors. Which is too bad because he is their 2nd best offensive player :lol

Like the guy said, Billy is an east coast guy.

I think he said 'play', because Kanter was an absolute negative last night.

There was a time when Harden blew right past him probably 3 or 4 times in a matter of 3 or 4 minutes. I always liked Kanter but man he's bad on defense. Not just bad... horrid.

I thought 'blame' made sense at first, but you can absolutely blame Kanter for back pedaling all the way into the restricted area before forcing Bev to make a decision. Who taught this man how to play PnR defense? The second he didn't hedge and Bev had a full head of steam, they were done. Capela didn't even have to set a screen (he didn't), because at that point it was 2 on 1 beyond the 3pt line and then BOTH Rockets players were attacking at full speed.

It's pathetic how being a cancerous retarded chucker will have the entire basketball world trying to cover for your obvious flaws. But the trippple dubbbblesss, LOL. His team is so bad..., yeah, no one else could possibly have shot more than 26% from the field against a team that is not at all defensively minded.

His cancerous habit of statpadding rebounds, has reduced his excellent big men into spectators who get outrebounded by Patrick Beverley. ****ing pathetic.

harden haters just can't admit that it was dantoni's plan and harden's ability to make his teammates better that got the rockets to where they are. nobody was talking about harden's supporting cast as anything but washed up or mere roll players until this year. all the sudden, now they are "stacked" :oldlol:

I questioned why Harden wasn't running the point years ago...

Even back in 2014, I was putting Harden at PG when I played NBA2k and it worked out just fine. :oldlol:

9 TOs:lol


On a real note though...that trifecta has to be one of the worst playoff games by a superstar ever..just across the board. And the westbrook trolls STILL running their mouths lol. It was a five pt game at halftime with brick at 5-16 and 7 TOs. There's literally nothing he could do to make them concede. It was the perfect experiment and they still came back.

-25 +/-, 26% FG, 27% 3PFG, 9 TO.

Team loses by 31.

Any legit superstar gets roasted for something this pathetic. But for some reason this retard gets a pass.

Bev shutting "muh tripdub" down... :applause:

Cant expect it to happen every game, as Russ will likely bounce back in game 2, but the badblood between these two make their 1v1 matchup nearly as enticing as the Harden/Westbrook MVP showdown.

Thunder in 7. Goatbrook is just chilling man. He is going to outlast Harden!

Harden just put the hammer down and showed why he is the real mvp unlike the stat chaser

Westbrook needs more help. Can't have Oladipo missing every wide open look he gets.

Imagine how Harden would be if he had no spacing. If no one on his team could shoot. He would go 35-47.
Welcome to the 2015 rockets with the likes of pappanikola,Nick Johnson, Joey Dorsey, Tarik Black, Josh Smith and Corey Brewer. Harden took these scrubs to the second seed in the West with a whopping 56 wins

Been like this the entire season, he's literally a manufactured 'star', without ref help he would be an average player at best.

Harden is better then Russ and even blind bum can see that. Better passer, Shooter, playmaker, court vision, teammate, running the pace and most importantly making others better. Harden is a true conductor at running an offense. Russ is a selfish ball hog.

Oh yeah. So I guess 2016 didn't happen right? :lol What did he lead his team to last year? Oh? Doesn't count? :oldlol:

Welcome to D'antoni offense, where Patrick Beverley could run it to perfection and likely win 50 games.
