Being 7' tall, Nowitzki is nearly impossible to guard with his array of moves. The smart German is great at using his body, and he picks apart his defenders in different ways.
So far, Nick Collison has guarded Nowitzki the majority of the series. As a matter of fact, the former Jayhawk has done a much better job on Nowitzki than many anticipated.
While Collison has received most of the duties on Nowitzki, Thunder players Serge Ibaka, Kendrick Perkins and Thabo Sefolosha bring their own skills to the table.
Let's go ahead and break down who should be guarding Dirk for the Thunder.
