And then there were FOUR

The "Final Four" in the NBA is the Western Conference you got the young and talented Oklahoma City Thunder vs the gritty and battled tested Dallas Mavericks. In the Eastern Conference, like I said in my last got the Chicago Bulls and the Miami Heat, enough said!!!
After the Thunder hammered the Grizzles in game 7 Sunday 105-90, the young guns are headed to the Western Conference Finals!!! Kevin Durant put the team on his back (not in his backpack), by scoring 39 points and grabbing 9 rebounds. His running mate Russell Westbrook recorded just the 5th triple double ever in Game 7 history. He tallied 14 points,10 rebounds, and 14 assists. The most recent player to do it, was Scottie Pippen in 1992. It seems as if the Thunder have peaked a year earlier than expected. The Dallas and OKC is going to be very intriguing. You can catch game 1 action Tuesday night at 9:30 on ESPN. Miami lost to the opening game to Chicago last night 103-82. Chris Bosh had a good game scoring 30 and grabbing 9 boards, but Wade and James combined scored 33 on 34% shooting. Thats not going to cut it throughout this series and I'm sure they know that, so I'm looking forward to a better outing by the two superstars Wednesday night at 8:30.
