think that was probably a rare lineup. I think he can only use that in certain situations, depending on Denver's lineup.
On how the Thunder matches up against San Antonio:
I think it's not a bad matchup for the Thunder. The Spurs are in a little bit of trouble. Jefferson, I suppose, would be on Durant. Advantage OKC. Tony Parker would have to cover Westbrook, unless the Spurs want to use an injured Ginobili. Parker would be hard to guard for Westbrook, but OKC has a defensive stopper in Thabo who at least could take a swing at stopping Ginobili. Perkins and Ibaka would be a good tag-team on Duncan. And remember when DeJuan Blair would get all those rebounds against OKC? That won't happen with Perkins and Ibaka in the lineup. The more I talk, the more I like the Thunder vs. the Spurs.
On the better coach - OKC's Scott Brooks or Denver's George Karl:
Maybe some day Scotty will be the better coach. But now, it's not even close. Look at their teams. The Thunder has way better talent. The Thunder is playing well together, which is to Scotty's credit. But Karl has coached tons of teams in all kinds of situations, and has always produced quality squads. His playoff record is not great. But Brooks' playoff record is non-existent. He's just getting started. Denver has the big edge in coaching in this series.
