@mattchant His defense has been lazy and poor!

Pathetic effort by Ibaka on Transition D. He did it several times in the first half too. As we already know, we need a new coach, same fundamental mistakes as last year, lazy Transition D and ball watching on rebounds.
@long arm of the law @hbelvoir He is great a majority of the time on D. His off ball D has improved but he still takes lazy gambles on too many possessions. He is an awesome player but just like Durant has a few things he can clean up to reach the highest level as a team

@TrueChamp @hbelvoir @OBoy @ou_sas If you don't think this then you have no coaching experience and aren't watching the games from a coaching perspective. We have very few issues but there are a couple that can easily be cleaned up.
@OBoy @hbelvoir @ou_sas It was beverly and a couple of times Harden. The results don't matter. He has done this his whole career and it hurts us against the best teams at the highest level. Coaching should take care of this.
@OBoy @ou_sas @hbelvoir The lazy Westbrook D and way too much ball watching during defensive rebounding are our two biggest issues. We really need to find a man when the shot goes up, put a body on him and then re-locate the ball and go get it. We often just watch the flight of the ball. That is a fundamental no no and I blame that on the coaching as well.
@ou_sas @hbelvoir @OBoy Yes I was, at least twice he lazily reached and let his man blow by him for a bucket. He needs to play more straight up defense.
@OBoy Doesn't matter because Russ is going to be lazy and reach then rely on our back line to clean it up for him. I love Westbrook but my biggest problem with him is his lazy D and I blame the coaching staff for cleaning that up a long time ago. There are good times to gamble but he reaches just to be lazy and it needs to stop.
Westbrook's D is a big problem. He needs to be told to stop gambling and stay in front of his man. His Lazy D is very problematic. He just reaches and tries to rely on the Big Guys help. He needs to play more straight up D and I blame that on the coaching!

@Aren't Brooks doesn't play with his rotations enough, to set in his ways. Would like to see Ibaka play with the smallball line-up instead of Nick. The regular season should allow players like Lamb and Jones to get a good learning experience but not with Brooks. Stan Van Gundy should be the coach next year.

@Bryson Me too and it's all on Brooks! Way to much ball watching, lazy transition D.
This is the best half I have seen Westbrook play. Setting guys up all over the floor and scoring bigtime.
@Bryson We are constantly ball watching! It's a very bad habit and something good coaching would have taken care of a long time ago!
The result doesn't matter. We will never reach our ultimate goal playing that way and Brooks having his head up his ass. I don't have much faith that it's going to change

Go get the damn ball Kevin. He just inbounded it and stood there. Demand the ball. Be a Man!
One guy holding the ball the other 4 guys standing. Ridiculous! Doesn't matter if we win, this won't work

Way too much Iso Ball. I hate Brooks!
@Dicharden Because you have to get back on D against Denver!
@Lost Ones He is playing great, but this repeated Iso hero ball will not work against the best teams unless everything breaks our way! Brooks sucks!
Another horrible offense possession. Not enough ball movement!
@OKC035 @Aren't We are not playing consistent, fundamental defense and we have to start doing it immediately! It must be done to reach the ultimate goal. Brooks must also call more set plays, involving movement and stop calling so many Iso's. He should let Durant bring the ball up more because it's very hard to double team at the top!

@Aren't I agree self accountablity is important! Russ takes a lot of heat on offense but that is Mostly on Brooks although Russ could limit his bad shots a bit more. But his defense is a huge problem. We are left trying to cover for him. Ibaka has been terrible too and should have got pulled for his transition D late in the game yesterday!
Russ is also very lazy on ball-screens. He continues to go under and get beat with the jumpshot. Going under is sometime the right strategy against average shooters but Russ is doing it out of laziness
One of our biggest problems right now is Russ's lazy defense. He continues to pout before getting back on D and picks up the wrong guy just to be lazy which costs us dearly match-up wise .Especially late in the game last night. Brooks has to hold him accountable and while he is at it, start getting some movement instead of calling isolation plays. Brooks is holding us back with his playcalling and his lack of accountability on the D end.
Liggins is light years ahead of Lamb. The difference on D is bigger then the Grand Canyon!

@GervinReincarnated He didn't play much in the second half last night either! For some reason Brooks forgets about him. I don't get it!
2 years, 2 months ago on Thunder vs. Suns: Pregame Primer
@GervinReincarnated Brooks just doesn't use Collison in 2nd half last two games! Stupid!
@GervinReincarnated He needs to get Durant more rest! It will help him greatly later in the year and in his career!
I have no idea why Brooks goes away from Collison in the second half the last two games! Less Thabeet, more Collison!
Put Collison in the game!
@SeanzieCrews Thabo should have been in on several defensive possessions. Brooks is a moron. He should play collison and Thabo.

Huge REbound Ivey

That play is bound to fail. We have been lucky in the past. You can't throw it cross court against great athletes. Just a dumb play and more greatness by Broooks.
Perk went from Doc Rivers to Scott Brooks and lost his fundamentals. Shocking! Keep your feet on the damn ground. Great D ruined at the end.
What the hell is Russ doing! We have Perk for a reason, to defend the post. Stop playing in no-mans land trying to half ass dig and stay out on Harris. Brutal D.
Russ was non-chalant, game should have been over. Hope he makes it so with his free throws

would rather see colllison then ibaka.
Do not Leave Dirk ,Make Terry make a contested 2
It is seriously depressing watching Brooks coach. Harden is just standing around out there. Run a pick n roll with Russ and Durant setting the screen. At the same time run a down screen for Harden on the week side. There I just called a good play. Wish Brooks could do the same!
Isolation, Isolation, Isolation, One fricken player moving and 4 standing. Hate it. Try running action on both sides of the floor!
Why the fuck are they hedging that high. Go under! Our ball screen D is embarrasing. Oh and nice shot Russ. Skippy is laughing
Brian Davis is an idiot
Ivy is playing great defense.
Even though Russ made the three, there is zero offense going on. We are just standing around. Call a set and run a set. Brooks Sucks!
James holding his wrist after that last play! We need to get him healthy, even if it means he sits!
Roddy is abusing Reggie and our Ball Screen Defense is horrible as usual!
@Lost Ones @tydude @dancassidy35 Should take Reggie's minutes, about 10 minutes a game. Harden handles the ball most of the time anyways and Ivy is a better shooter!

3 years, 1 month ago on Thunder at 76ers: Pregame Primer
@thunderstruck87 Skip should be calling out Brooks more then Westbrook, Russ does still make some dumb decisions but it's mostly on Brooks
@JimboSlice Problem is, can't do that in the post season. If they don't fix their offensive issues, we will not win a title.
