The Thunder just got took to 7 freaking games by the 8th seed missing their 2nd best player. Don't talk about beating weak teams.

if they can get their hands on a low post scorer they would. Right now they score on mostly perimeter plays and fast breaks or backdoor cuts.

Hopefully they don't become the Sixers from a few years ago. Get a low post player and lose their identity of a fast break team.

Yes. Thunder are by far the best team left, lead by Kevin Durant the most dominant scorer in the NBA.

Memphis was a far better team then either Indiana or Atlanta. Lol more wins and better players...

But Memphis isn't your typical #8 seed just happy to get in. They had 46 wins, thats a pretty good season considering they lost their starting 3 for 20 or so games.

I'd lean more towards the Bulls. Keep in mind their regular series record was racked up even with long stretches without Boozer and Noah both in the lineup. I'm confident they would have amassed more wins if the team was at 100%.

One thing that hasn't been mentioned in previous posts is the coaching. Even in his first year as a head coach, Thibs is going above and beyond expectations. The bench and superlative coaching put the Bulls on top over the Thunder as far as being a 'complete team' is concerned.

It's worth mentioning that OKC was 16-3 post Perkins trade
