    I can see Portland winning one at home and one at OKC but that's about it.

    Depends on how bad PG's shoulder is and if Westbrick can keep his hero ball syndrome in check. Thunder in 6 or Blazers in 7

    OKC lucked out. Gets to play a weak 3 seed. Nurkic-less Blazers. A team they owned in the regular season.

    Westbrick Hero Ball aka Westchoke aka Mr. Fake Triple Double will be the reason OKC loses against the Blazers.

    Root for Blazers but OKC looks better on paper, like their D.

    They will miss Nurkic for sure.

    Dame better step up because last year was just embarrassing

    I’ll be rooting hard for Portland...if OKC loses in the 1st round yet again to this injured Portland team then the Russ slander will reach all new levels

    If both Okc and the Rockets advance to the second round don't the seeds get re ordered? Then OKC would play Golden State in the second round because they have a worse record us right?

    I feel like this really opened up a path for OKC to be in WCF against Houston.

    I can see OKC getting past a Nurkic-less Portland team, but I don't see them beating Denver who swept the season series against OKC

    The Thunder are the better team. If Portland had Nurkic I'd probably favor them but that's a big contributor missing and against a team that has a lot of talented bigs.
