Tough defensively (ironically without their best defender). They're going to be a tough out.

The Lakers have a goal of limiting mileage on Lebron this year. They've done a good job with his minutes so far, and you have to wonder if and when they're going to rest him. The answer to that probably impacts our ultimate playoff seeding. He has coasted a number of games so maybe they will limit his actual DNPs with BGEs (barely gave effort). When he does DNP/BGE, they can turn the leadership reigns over to Rondo.

Big picture I think they figure home court in the first round is the practical goal but not worth entering April worn out.

I won’t be surprised to see both OKC and the Lakers battle it out in the WCF this year, both are good defensively and both have good bench players and nice depth.

They're a tough team but they can't hit a three pointer to save their lives. It shouldn't be too hard for a good defensive team to hold them down in a playoff series, especially whenever Westbrook has a bad game (which seems to happen to him more than other superstars).
