    I say Spurs, CP3 is a wild card and LAL looks ready to roll over like last year.

    So which LA team will win first? :p

    I'll say the Clippers but both OKC/SA playing at a high level.

    Clippers still have a chance to win this game, as it is 90-80.

    So I say Spurs lose first.

    Thunder. Spurs are too clinical. Thunder stinking up a game is more likely.

    Spurs cuz Pop will rest his starters for game 4. Of course, they still have a 50% chance of winning. Fakers are done.

    Thunder. The Lakers will at least win a home game, not so sure about the Clippers and their awful defense.

    Lakers are closer to beating OKC than the Clips are to beating the Spurs. SA are playing too good ATM, they'll sweep the Clips.

    I predict the Clippers will rise up and win game 3 and maybe game 4 because CP3 will stop playing like a dog.

    I could totally see this happening, especially if the Spurs go up 3-0. Or at least, play the big 3 for the first half, and then empty the bench for the second.

    Pop won't need to rest his starters in game 4 going for a sweep since the layoff would be about 9 days. Tentative start date of WCFs is Tuesday, May 29th.

    I can fully see Pop rest his starters in game 4. We'll see a few more "DND-Old".

    However, I also think the Lakers will win game 3 at home. And since they play on Friday the Thunder will lose first.

    I think Lakers take game 3.
    Clippers just need to focus on not getting embarrassed at this point.

    I think that the Lakers will take one of the games in LA. I think the Spurs are going to sweep unless Pop decides to rest the Big 3 completely in game 4 and CP3 goes nuts.

    If they both sweep past LA in round 2, I think the Spurs will take game 1 in SA.

    So I voted for the Thieves.
