Dallas vs Oklahoma City: I’ll take Dallas in seven games here. OK City should present Dallas with a very formidable challenge, but I think this deep Dallas squad will prevail with home court advantage. I thought the loss of Caron Butler would emerge as a problem for Dallas in the playoffs, but after shutting out the Lakers they have clearly proven they have plenty of offensive firepower. In Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook OK City has two of best young players in the league and I think OK City will be a serious contender for years in to come if they keep those two together. However, I think it is still too early for the Thunder to make it to the finals. Give’em a few years though, they will probably be there.
