    1 game at the most. Wouldn't be surprised if OKC sweeps 4-0. Worse possible match-up for the Rox in my opinion.

    Thunder (1) vs. Rockets (8): How Do You Think The Series Will End?

    Some fans actually wanted this match up. Well, it's here. I think Coach Pringles showed the Thunder how to control the tempo of the game against a fast paced team like the Rockets. The Rockets can't do much in the half court when the defense is set, especially if Harden isn't getting the whistle when he drives. I don't think Hero ball will cut it in a playoff series.

    Harden knows the Thunder's system, which could come in handy, but they know Harden's game pretty well too. How many games will the Rockets win against OKC?

    I think we'll be swept, but I'm okay with that. Successful season to make the playoffs with this team.

    0, 1 if we're lucky.

    Honestly this team is unbelievable. Choked yet again at the end of the season, but this time had the Suns to bail them out.


    McHale better get his act together next season, or he is going to be fired.

    Sad thing is that this sweep will ruin what should have been/was a momentum building season two days ago

    Has a team ever gone from 0-4 1st round sweep to champion with largely the same core?

    Depends. 1 game if the Rox bring their A game.

    Thunder may actually win 4-0 in just 3 games if the Rockets play like they have this week.
