I think OKC's speed is over rated, especially when it comes to the playoffs. Playoff basketball is more of a half court game. I don't expect Nash to d up Westbrook. Nash can't guard anybody anyhow, and nobody in the league stops down Westbrook. Durant will obviously get his too. It's just stopping the rest of them, which is totally possible. One of those games they lost by 2 points. Another was 3 points. I think Nash makes a 2-3 point difference.
