NBA Round 2 Thunder/Lakers

Oklahoma City Thunder vs LA Lakers
The Thunder will not have played for over a week, by the time this series begins. While they may be rusty in game 1, they will definitely be well rested. The Thunder match-up well with the Lakers. Kendrick Perkins can guard Andrew Bynum by himself. Without needing to double team in the post;  the Thunder can help on Kobe Bryant, and Serge Ibaka can roam the paint looking for blocks and deflections. Kevin Durant will shoot right over Ron Artest and the Lakers have no one to guard, let alone stay in front of Russell Westbrook and James Harden on the defensive end. If Westbrook displays the same maturity he showed in the round 1 sweep of the Mavericks, this could be a short series. The Thunder play the same way as the Nuggets; up and down "run n gun" style basketball. The one exception being: The Thunder have more talented players. Seeing as how the less talented Nuggets took the Lakers to seven games, I don't think this series gets past 5 games.
The Pick: OKC Thunder in 5 games
