Coach Nick shows you how Dirk Nowitzki was too much to handle, even though Scott Brooks didn’t utilize enough methods to stop him. JJ Barea is also a difference maker in this series.

  •  Hey there Coach Nick. Nice breakdown! Your channel has really helped me understand the game better and have more fun watching the playoffs. Please keep it up!

  • Hey Coach Nick. Good breakdown. I like your stuff. You said that Russell Westbrook would be the number 2 shooting guard in the league if he played that position. Are you saying that he would be better than Kobe Bryant/Dwyane Wade? And if so, who? Or did you mean that in a different way?

  • He’d be right behind Wade. The way Kobe’s been moving and playing, I don’t think he’s better than Russ.
