Can Thunder Slow Down Clippers’ No. 1 Offense?
We fully expect Durant, Westbrook and the Thunder to match offensive fireworks with the Clippers, but can OKC slow down LA’s top-ranked offense? Talents like CP3 and Griffin will still get theirs on the offensive end. But perhaps the Thunder’s defense will be aided by their ability to throw big bodies such as SergeIbaka, KendrickPerkins and NickCollison at LA’s 6-foot-11, 265-pound center DeAndreJordan, who feasted on the Warriors for averages of 12 points and 15 rebounds per game during the first round. Curbing his paint production, especially on the boards, will go a long way for the Thunder. Hey Serge, this especially means you. Time to get big! (Photo: Rob Carr/Getty Images)
