COACH MILLER: SERIES KEYS
    Chris Paul
    Bryant
  • The Lakers BIGS must show up -- Bynum engaged at both ends, Gasol playing like they stole his lunch money
  • Control the pace -- attack inside then out; balanced floor when shot goes up
  • Transition defense -- Thunder averaged 103 ppg; sprint back, get turned and set
  • Build a wall -- limit drives to the rim; help and recover in a proactive not reactive mode
  • --Coach Dave Miller, 710 ESPN basketball analyst
