WESTERN CONFERENCE - FIRST ROUND

(1) Oklahoma City vs. (8) Houston
(2) San Antonio vs. (7) L.A. Lakers
(3) Denver vs. (6) Golden State
(4) L.A. Clippers vs. (5) Memphis

Predictions:
Okc in 5
Lakers in 7
Denver in 6
Clippers in 6


Definitely going to be more entertaining than the Eastern Conference.

Anyone think the Lakers have a shot at a monumental upset? Dunno if old man Duncan can handle an inform Howard and Gasol.

I think the Spurs handle Dwight similarly to how they handled Amar'e back in 2005: let him score at will.

http://www.basketbal..._playoffs::none

Amar'e averaged 37 ppg in that series and the Suns lost in 5. The only game the Suns won, he scored his series low of 31. Pau adds a wrinkle to this strategy, but I think Duncan can contain Pau.

Honestly. I would rather start Blake over Meeks, Meek is suppose to be a shooter, but he is just an average one IMO. He gives good effort on defense, but effort can only get you so far. Nash/Blake/MWP/Gasol/Howard would be the lineup I would go with. Blake could could help Nash with some ball handling.

If Pau and Howard feel it in the 1st round, then Spurs will def be in for a torrid time. Don't see Duncan handling 2 all star front court players by himself.

But I'm afraid its the Lakers brittle back court and wings that will be their down fall.

Nash and MWP are coming into this series not at 100% while blake is blake.
