With the word this morning that Oklahoma City Thunder All-Star point guard Russell Westbrook will have surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee and will be out indefinitely, we suddenly have a totally new outlook on the expectations in the NBA Western Conference playoffs. The Thunder are the favorites to reach the finals, and remember that OKC is set to be the Clippers next opponent, IF Coach Vinny Del Negro’s guys can get past Memphis and they lead that series 2 games to 1 and IF the Thunder can eliminate Houston.

The Grizzlies are favorites to even this series tomorrow afternoon in Tennessee so it was great timing to have Clippers assistant coach Bob Ociepka call me to discuss this scenario. And how about Bob just finishing up his advance scouting the Thunder while just finding out about the Westbrook injury before our chat?

Timing is everything, and we discussed it all…
Bob Ociepka with Ted Sobel:

Remember that you can hear all Clippers playoff games on KFWB Newstalk 980, with tomorrow’s airtime starting at 12:30 with “Lob City” and first tip is just past 1:30.
