OKC was playing their best basketball ever in those 4 games. In a normal situation I'd expect SA to win, especially since SA is better this year and OKC looks worse.

I'd be very surprised if they don't make the finals.

But until they do, I'll keep hearing how they're a regular season team. That's fine, they deserved it :)

Regular season team imo. But I do think they would kill the Clippers.

BTW All Net, in a Spurs vs. Thunder series I'd say they'd have the best player on the floor (notice the noun in singular) but to say Russell Westbrook has been better this year is severely underrating Parker. If anything they are on the same level at this point.

This.

Spurs seem to run out of gas in the playoffs.

If the Lakers somehow manage to get to the 8th seed and the Spurs the 1st seed, I wouldn't be surprised if the Lakers beat them.

I would be very surprised. Teams that could beat Spurs: OKC, Memphis. Clippers lose because of the weak coaching. LA is a mess and won't get past the 1st round if they ever get into the playoffs. Houston could upset Spurs IMO. Denver would give Spurs a good battle as always.

Even with Westbrook i doubt this year OKC could have beaten SAS again.
OKC without Harden is way less dangerous offensivly plus the frontcourt is below average this year considering how bad Perkins regressed.

Clearly had an impact, but 2013 OKC can't hold a candle to 2012. The loss of Harden would have been the difference IMO.

Would have been a fantastic series though, disappointed it never happened.

They're probably the only team I can see beating Miami.
Damn his prediction is about to be fulfilled.

Seems like every year people have made outlandish predictions that the Spurs would make the finals and the past few years people were way off. This year was like destiny I guess. All the injuries for other teams and Spurs are looking healthy.
