Also, the Tulsa preseason game is during fall break for all the schools...many many folks out of town. They would fill the arena to capacity a couple of times a year in Tulsa, but I still don't think this will ever happen, though it would certainly be nice for folks like me who are season ticket members who make the drive from Tulsa for so many games.

@Perk has a lot of value
This is a complete non-story. We always restrict ticket sales like this...also there were less than 100 tickets total for sale on Ticketmaster anyway & they were all in the extreme nosebleeds behind the basket. Those tickets sold out almost instantly.

@Julius F Wrek @durantulous@Loud City JimmyConley is my only real fear against the Grizzlies. He is a very underrated player. Gasol & Zbo are great, but I don't think they can beat us by themselves. They need Lee & particularly Conley to play out of their minds to steal more than one game.

@L0rv @Loud City Jimmy I don't disagree, but it is just a matchup thing for me. I think Memphis is better in general, but I don't think they are better against us.

@Lasch @Loud City Jimmyagree here...and my wife's best friend lives in Memphis & talked so much noise last summer. I very much want a chance for redemption.

Am I the only one hoping for Memphis in round 1? Neither MEM or DAL will be a cake walk, but I much prefer the battle with Memphis' bigs than watching Dirk go to the line 20 times/game.

@Mr_F I wasn't saying it couldn't happen. I just think it is more likely that we sweep than we play six against either of them.

@ Luke @Loud City JimmyHonestly, I hope we avoid the Mavs in the first round. I really like Dirk, I would love to see them knock off the Spurs for us, & my inlaws are big Mavs fans & I don't need any trouble this summer.

@f5alcon @Loud City JimmyThat was about the time Jason Terry was calling us his "little brother" wasn't it?

@ Luke @Loud City JimmyThe only 2 questions that matter in a Thunder v Mavs series is: who guards Russell for them, & how many free throws does Dirk get?

@ Luke @Loud City JimmyThey actually scare me more than either the Suns or the Grizzlies, but I would be pretty surprised if we drop two games in the first round to any of them.

I think it's cute that the ESPN Dallas guy thinks the Mavs can take two from OKC in the playoffs. They get one "Dirk is still Dirk" win in game three...maybe, but I really struggle to see how that series would be more than 5 games.

@lethalizer  I would actually prefer Memphis over the other options in the first round for three reasons:

First, I don't want to play the young athletic team that doesn't yet know they don't belong in a series with us...very high "someone random could go off on us" potential against the Suns.

Second, I don't want to play the team with Dirk.


Third, my wife's best friend lives in Memphis & she talked serious trash to me last year & I would like to remind the Grizzlies of their station in life.

Tough road ahead to get the 1 seed. I would estimate the chances at around 20% probably. Not including the head to head game with the Spurs which we would obviously have to win to overtake them, we need to beat them by a margin of 2 games in our last nine (both teams have 9 to go). Here is the breakdown for both teams:


OKC (3 home 6 road) UTA, @HOU, @PHX, @SAC, @LAC, NOP, @IND, @NOP, DET

SAS (5 home 4 road) NOP, @IND, GSW, MEM, @MIN, @DAL, PHX, @HOU, LAL


The good news is we own the tie breaker & we get them at home on a second of a back-to-back, & they have only one gimme win (LAL to close the season) & we have three (UTA, @SAC, DET). The bad news is I'm not sure we can count on them losing 3 or 4 games in those nine & I think that is what it's going to take. If we can go 8-1 in these games I think we have a shot, but anything less just seems unlikely, since 7-2 for us would require the Spurs to lose 4 of these games & with the presupposed loss to us would mean that they will finish 5-5 in their last 10, & I just don't see them finishing that poorly. 


Thoughts?

@Legendary_Dork I don't think they will play him in Houston...no reason to risk an injury due to skirmish/physical play from Beverly.

Maybe the Warriors can do us a solid & take down the Spurs tonight on a second of a back to back for San Antonio.

This is your daily reminder that the sky is not falling.

We are currently only .oo5% off of our winning percentage at the end of last season (.727 this year & .732 last year). 

We are giving up tons of 3's but we have been missing Thabo for a bit, & his only real contribution is stopping perimeter scorers.


We played last night with almost no intensity, but we didn't play one of the 10 best players in the league who's primary contribution is unfathomable intensity. 


Last night's loss was the first loss to a team from Texas all year...we were 8-0 before last night & all three Texas teams are playoff teams.

We still have that Durant fellow on our team, & he is pretty good. 

Don't stress out everyone...we are going to be fine.
