Both teams have similar styles, play mostly perimeter ball, defending is always key, and they are deep as hell, and athletic and love to run.
If Nene is healthy he will be the key, the only guy on either team who can score down low. But he has to battle Perkins who is the best low post defender in the league.
I think Denver will go with Lawson and Felton together a lot and run like wild horses. Don't think nether guy can check Westbrook who will be the reason OKC wins this series. I see him averaging 25/9/7 over the course of the series.
I think George Karl saying 45/55 he would rather see Dallas is going to show its ugly head, and Felton talking smack will get him smacked up by Westbrook.
This is a can't miss series for me, Im gonna try and watch every game
