220-pound Thunder Star Can Stop Luka Doncic, Claims 33-Year-Old Veteran; Predicts Mavs series loss

The Western Conference semifinal between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Dallas Mavericks is one of most anticipated series of these playoffs. It’s difficult to predict a winner in this series, given the offensive genius of both teams. But Demarcus Cousins ​​believes defense is the X factor which can seal victory for either. Anyway, Cousins ​​is choosing the OKC Thunder over the Mavericks, purely for a 25-year-old star, who he believes can stop Luka Doncic.

Cousins ​​and host Rachel Nichols tapped Phoenix Suns star Isaiah Thomas for their podcast All the smoke. Thomas wants the Dallas Mavericks to win, but Cousins ​​responded: “I do just the opposite. I had OKC on the show…They’re not popular names. The guy that I think is going to stand out in this series is Lu Dort. He defends. Obviously, as far as Luka Doncic is concerned, I don’t think there is a human on this earth to stop this guy. But Cousins ​​believes the 220-pound Lu Dort can contain the Slovenian sensation to minimal numbers.

The 33-year-old added: As for Dallas, I see a very, very good offensive team. As far as OKC goes, I definitely seeReally good offensive team and a Really, very good defensive team. For me, it leans towards OKC. I think Lu Dort go being the X factor of the series. Cousins ​​made his choicelet’s go wait and see if it comes true.
