Oklahoma City has been the beneficiary of some epic choke jobs, much like the Mavs last season. Game one against Dallas; Dallas chokes a late ten point lead, only to see Durant hit a ton of rim before a lucky roll allowed him to score. Game two against Dallas; Dallas has a late lead and fails; Dirk had a wide open three.....and missed. Game four against Dallas reminded me game one last season between the Mavs and Lakers; Mavs had a 13 point lead going into the fourth.....and lost. Tonight's game, Kobe lost it for the Lakers.

I've never seen a team win 6 straight playoff games strictly off luck.

Lucky? When a team is as consistently "lucky" as they are, then you call that good. So no, the Thunder are not lucky, they're good.

The Spurs and Thunder are the two best teams in the West, and it has been clear for months.
