08:09 AM ET 05.30 | Given the setup, Oklahoma City Thunder's Kendrick Perkins teed off. [Perkins] has defended two of the better big men during OKC's playoff run -- Lakers' Andrew Bynum and San Antonio Spurs' Tim Duncan. So after defending Bynum and Duncan, Perkins would be the best to compare the differences between the two bigs and Perk gets right down to the point - Duncan is a smarter player. Perk was asked what the difference is between defending Tim Duncan and Andrew Bynum. "Well, Duncan is smart," he said. Ouch Perk but then again, it was kind of an obvious observation. There is no doubt Bynum is one of the best big man in the league when he has his head on straight but when he isn't focused, he is nothing but a head-ache for L.A.

Why would anyone compare Duncan and Bynum anyway? Not even close.... at all. Duncan is a Legend

Exactly. There is no comparison.

The only people he needs to worry about being smart is RW and that dumb coach of his.

Brooks went to hack a Splitter for what, so Splitter could get free throw practice? He didn't shave but a single point off the lead.

But then Pop messed up a little too, he left the bench out there too long at the beginning of the 4th. He should have brought the starters back when the lead was at 14 instead of 10. That would have allowed us 2 possessions to get our rhythm and still have a double digit lead, instead OKC actually cut it to 6 pts.

Also we saw too much Bonner again. 5-10 mins or less not a minute more.

Still the Spurs rolled.

Spurs in 3!

...the problem in OKC is that when derek fisher outscores ALL of their big men, how in the world can they expect to win a championship.....DEREK FISHER...

I think that when Fisher sees those Spurs uni's he just get's THAT feeling... he is a Spurs killer.

That said - you're right. OKC ain't going nowhere near the finals with Fisher leading them in scoring.

Still - series is young.
