Re: 2011 NBA Playoffs Round 1: Thunder vs Nuggets preview
A few ways to look at this one:
From a Denver perspective:
Nene was unstoppable. It took Westbrook and Durant going off and a bad call to lose this one. Should be somewhat confident going forward.
From an OKC perspective:
Not likely Denver will hit, basically, their first 20 shots again. They were contested and still went in. Harden and Ibaka missed a ton of open looks they usually knock down and that won't likely happen again.
I think OKC played a crap game except for Durant and Westbrook (most of the game), Denver played a near perfect game for about 90% of the game, and still didn't get the W. Still think OKC wins the series in 5 or 6.
