The NBA Playoffs have finally reached the point that most fans care about. The Conference Finals. And this match-up of the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Golden State Warriors is certainly surprising to some, but should call for an entertaining series. With arguably three of the game’s top five players squaring off, talent will be flush throughout the series. We have polled our NBA writers to see who they believe will be crowned victorious in these Western Conference Finals…. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below…

Series: 7 Games

I am not wavering from my original prediction that the Warriors would win the championship and lose very little games in the process. There have been some twists and turns on the way to the Western Conference Finals. Oklahoma City is looking dangerous, and may have the most explosive player in the league on their side. However, the Warriors have home court advantage, and the MVP on their side. I'm sticking with the Warriors, but this series is going to be better than the Golden State vs San Antonio series we all thought we would see.

This will be the best series we have seen in a long time. The Steph vs Westbrook matchup will determine the outcome. Warriors offense just too much by the time it's all said and done.

With Stephen Curry back in the fold and back to health, the Warriors team will have their MVP back at their disposal. Westbrook and Durant will make the series interesting and tight, but won't be enough to hold back the Warriors.

The Thunder did something I thought only the Warriors could do: Beat San Antonio. Now the Thunder are riding high but they run smack dab into an unstoppable machine of whizzing basketballs and silky three point shots. The Thunder out muscled the Spurs, but the Warriors just won't let them play that game. OKC'S best lineup had Enes Kanter and Steven Adams side by side in a huge lineup that out rebounded the Spurs into oblivion. Enter Draymond Green. Exit Thunder.

How can a true Steph Curry hater pick the Warriors? He can't. I'll take the Durant-Westbrook combo to take down the Warriors, mainly because I don't see Curry's ankles and knees holding up in a physical series. However, if this goes to seven games, the Warriors will advance with their homecourt advantage in the final game.

This is the Warriors chance to put the discussion of luck behind them. They get to play a healthy and dangerous/volatile Thunder squad. The Thunder are riding high after taking down the Spurs, unfortunately their volatility is their downfall. This is what keeps them from a rematch with LeBron.

This will be a seven game war, but as crazy as it sounds I think OKC has some better match ups. The Thunder made major adjustments during the series with the Spurs and discovered that they have some major flexibility in-game planning, specifically with the Steven Adam and Enes Kanter combo. If Golden State plays the same way they did against the Blazers their 73-win season will be meaningless.
