it comes down to blake and cp3 making the most of what they have and kd and westbrook making the most of what they have. of course other guys like chip in here and there, but its going to be a bunch of cp3 pick and rolls or blake post ups or kd/westbrook isos. which ever players preform the best in these situations will probably end up winning the game. you can talk about coaches all you want but it always comes down to how the players take advantage of what they have
Most of the times I would agree with this. However, this series points to that not having to be the case on the clippers side of things. Jamal crawford, Collison, matt barnes (minus today) has been there, big baby has had value this series,reddick has been there this series, they aren't solely dependent on bg and cp. Fourth quarter of today had cp and bg going, but Collison and crawford also carried them.
Thats not the case with okc obviously. The fact that they looked so dominant for most of the series thus far speaks volumes about how great and elite of a combo westbrook and durant are. If one of them becomes an inefficient scorer for a game, or becomes sloppy with the ball (durant today) they'll struggle big time. Very interested to see how the restof this series plays out.
