Jeremy Conn: Western Conference Finals
I believe NBA fans got the match-up that they wanted in the Western Conference Finals. That is, if you wanted to see the 2 best teams play.
Forget everything you think you know about the San Antonio Spurs. The Spurs are very deep and can play up to 10 different players at any given time in the game. They have a lot of young talent, mixed with the savvy veterans and the best coach in the NBA. On the flip side, the Thunder have two of the most dynamic players in the league in Durant and Westbrook and they also have a very deep bench.
I think most fans are expecting the Thunder to win this series. I really don’t see that happening. The Spurs will more than likely put Kawhi Leonard on Kevin Durant and we will see Parker go against Westbrook. The Spurs were in the top 3 in scoring this year and they can play any style of game you throw at them. The Spurs haven’t lost a game in over a month. The Thunder have limited turnovers in their last 2 series, but I think the spurs are a little better and quicker at the guard position than the Lakers and Mavs.
I like the Spurs to win in 6.
