Thunder: Ranking the NBA playoff teams
We’re one full week and another weekend into the 2011 NBA playoffs. Every series except Oklahoma City-Denver and San Antonio-Memphis has played four games. Plenty of time to establish which teams have played well and which have not. Let’s rank the 16 teams, based on their performance:
1. Memphis: I know, the Grizzlies have lost a game, while Boston and Oklahoma City are undefeated. But Memphis won at San Antonio, then held court at home on Saturday night. Very impressive.
2. Oklahoma City: Thunder was fortunate to beat Denver in Game 1, but since then, it’s been nothing but impressive. A blowout win in OKC, then the first playoff road win of the Oklahoma City era.
3. Boston: A sweep is hard to beat. On the other hand, the Knickerbockers are pushovers. But good for Boston. Two close wins at home, then two virtual blowouts in New York.
4. Miami: Heat has been solid against overmatched Philadelphia. But Miami let the 76ers stage a big comeback in Game 1, then Philly won Game 4.
