could happen. But it generally doesn't. The bench has been brilliant, though.

On the technical foul rules in the playoffs and what affect it will have on center Kendrick Perkins:

Regular season techs do not carry over to the playoffs. Perk has 11. So, Thunder heads can finally breath a sigh of relief. With only two games remaining, there is no way he can reach 16, which would land him an automatic one-game suspension. In the postseason, a player is suspended after he receives his seventh technical. And, again, that count starts from scratch. So there is really nothing to worry about.

On his playoff prediction for the Thunder:

Second round. Game 7. Spurs or Lakers win the close out game at home.
