We match up OK/well with the Thunder and usually play close with them (regular season and last years playoffs). Durant as a closer is the big difference, but the same can be said for Kobe..
Faried guarding KD would be interesting
I think Denver would benefit with their bigs. With OKC's smaller size and less offensive Ibaka/Perk, it would be smart to play Harrington and Faried more. Draw OKC out of the paint and their guys won't have to worry about wasting so much energy defending OKC.
Westbrook/Durant/Harden are the people to stop, and if you can get one to play badly and one other to play slightly below average, Denver could win.
Gallo and Brewer have decent size to match up on Durant, and Brewer and the Mavs beat them last year.
I think it would be an intense series, but I won't pick a winner until the matchup actually happens.
Denver would definitely have a shot though.
