Memphis is not going to beat Oklahoma City in two straight games so fans of the thunder can be almost assured of the Thunder appearing in the conference finals. However do they have enough scoring,defense,determination, and luck to defeat the Dallas Mavericks who dismantled the defending champion Los Angeles Lakers with relative ease? If Russell Westbrook can control himself and the thunder get point production off the bench from Harden and company the series will be very competitive to say the least. The Thunder will also have to hit some clutch shots because this will be a good a chance as any for Dirk and company to go to the finals and redeem themselves against the Miami Heat. Yes the Miami Heat are going to the Finals because the scoring-starved Bulls and the clueless Hawks have realistically no chance against the scoring and defensive dominance of LeBron and Dwayne. Do yall think that the Thunder are ready to advance to the conference finals and then the NBA finals? I personally think that the Thunder are going to have to wait at least one more year to go to the finals becasue i think that Dirk is on a mission to capture is first NBA championship? The future is the Thunder's though.
