I still think Lakers have a good shot of beating OKC.

Yes and it is going to take the whole team to play well in beating them.

Thunder are great, but there's a reason why Mavs are ranked 7th. We beat the Mav's 4-0 also this year.

All of OKC jump shots were falling when they are it is hard to beat them but LA defense is better than Dallas. We

Hard to root against my second favorite team...but I really don't want to play these guys, either.

This series was over when we all knew it was happening in late April.

if we were to win a championship we were going to play OKC, San antonio, and Miami to do it. no matter what. if we can't do that we don't deserve the trophy.

that was the road pretty much since February the only unknown was what order we'd play them

Yeah i can't see Memphis beating SAS this season Parker is playing at an MVP level probably one of his best seasons of his career, and their supporting cast is great also.

Memphis would get ripped apart by the Spurs this season. I'd like to say otherwise, and it's me crossing my fingers that I'm wrong, but Manu was injured last season, there was no Stephen Jackson, Richard Jefferson was a liability, Splitter needed much more work, and the team didn't play through Parker as much as they do now.

This Thunder/Mavs series can't be a surprise to anyone, though. People can trash Durant all they want, but the trio (with Westbrook and Harden) can be as good as any other trio in the NBA.

After coming short in the first two games, why the hell did they allow their opponent to blow them out in front of their supporters? If we can't beat OKC (more than probably) then I'll be rooting for Miami in the Finals, I can't stand those clowns named Harden and Durant.

Arguably the greatest franchise ever

The same reason why we "allowed" Dallas to beat the living [expletive] out of us in Game 4 last season: the opposing team was just better, period. Has nothing to do with allowing anything. The Mavericks played hard most of the game, even when it was out of reach (at around 25) and you knew they weren't going to come back from it.

I understand why you don't like Harden, because he runs his chops quite a bit...but I don't get why you can't stand Durant. He's actually more likable than Kobe has been almost every year minus the last few.

Dalas loosing the game 3 is different than us loosing game 3 to dallas last year. We did let them win first two at home butbthey were in front of their own crowd and sweeped. Dallas looked just pathetic in game 3. 4-0 4-1 thunder is really bad for us :/

I actually thought the Mavs were going to take these 2 at home but guess not. The series is over, that's 99.9999% sure, but hopefully the Mavs can just take 1 off them so we can try to match the amount of rest OKC will be getting. We'll need it more than they will. <_<

If the Mavs didn't choke the first two games the series would be the opposite.

If both the Lakers and the Thunder end up sweeping, do they both get time off until the rest of the 1st round series are done?
