2012 NBA Playoffs: Dirk Nowitzki Talks Thunder Following Sweep

Fresh off of their Game 4 loss and sweep at the hands of the Oklahoma City Thunder, Dirk Nowitzki talked about the series and the many weapons that coach Scott Brooks has at his disposal.

"If you look at the team we just lost to, it was [Russell] Westbrook in Game 1 and Game 2, it was Durant [in Game 3], and today they just throw it to Harden and he goes off," Nowitzki said.

With three players capable of exploding offensively in Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant and James Harden off the bench, Oklahoma City has the make up of a team that can become elite according to Nowitzki.

"If you want to be an elite team in this league right now, you have to have at least two or three guys that can just go off at any time. I just thought they had more weapons than us. That was pretty clear."
