My hope is that when KD and Russ get back we continue to play with this kind of defensive intensity for the rest of the year.


My hope is that we are as strong and focused defensively as we have been, while also having more offensive talent than almost anyone else in the league.


If we play like that, watch out NBA.  Could have a historic run.

@kevindurant35 We literally have zero other playmakers out there right now.


The Thunder are the only team in the league with one healthy play maker on its roster.


Not surprising at all in my mind.

So what are the odds that the defense can remain at this level when KD and Russ get back.


We will certainly remain desperate and hungry for the rest of the season.  Could possibly have a seriously epic run if the defensive energy remains this high when our talent level returns to normal.

22 - 4 - 7.5 averages


Glad he is on our team this year.  Hope we pay him next year.


Oh and anyone who talks shit about Thomas for the next week should be banned from the site.  That guy worked his ass off tonight and was a huge key to this win.

@MorrowFaction(I still have faith in Lamb) We are playing better defense overall as a team.


Staying in front of people better generally leads to less opportunities for blocked shots and better overall defense.


Serge's blocks are down this year too.

@_justin @Zach99 @okcjim What is our ORTG when he is not on the floor?


Particulary, what is our ORTG when he is not on the floor AND Jackson is not on the floor.


Still a little ridiculous to look at a number like ORTG at this point in the season.  So few minutes played.  One bad or one good performance can skew numbers to total uselessness.

@_justin @Zach99 @okcjim I am watching the game.  People are getting decent shots and he is setting them up for many of them.


Look at who we have available.  Do you expect the same numbers as last year?

@okcjim Telfair is doing a decent job of running the offense though.  His assist numbers are pretty good and his turnover numbers are pretty low.  Our offense has run pretty well with him in the game.  I feel like he makes other people around him better.


His offensive efficiency is not great, but he has been fine overall in my opinion.


He just needs to stop shooting (or start making) all those early in the shot clock three pointers.


He is our third string point guard, pressed into duty that no one expected.  He has been fine.

@_justin The guy has done a decent job of creating offense for other people.  His offensive efficiency is not great, but he has done a nice job of getting us into our offense and making other players around him better.


I am fine with him as third string point guard in duty like what Royal Ivey pulled a couple of years ago once everyone is back and healthy.


Just please never ever shoot a three with more than three seconds on the shot clock again.

@Old Man Game Just tell Telfair that if he wants to keep his job he needs to stop jacking up threes.


If he stopped shooting threes, he would be just fine for this team.

@FunakiEjectsAnother [#StartLambFaction] @Zach99 @holdmymartian Divisions are dumb too.  Why should some teams have easier schedules than others just because of the dumb division that they are in?  Used to be because of travel, but modern travel makes that meaningless.


Make it fair.  Everyone plays everyone twice.

@FunakiEjectsAnother [#StartLambFaction] @Zach99 @holdmymartian The stupid East and West is a joke.  If you played home and home everyone is on a level playing field and there is no reason at all for east and west.  Just take the 16 best teams.


If we were in the East these injuries would be a blip on the radar and we could just cruise through to the playoffs.

This situation is another serious argument for less games in the same amount of time in the NBA season.  Less injuries, get rid of stupid meaningless divisions, more rest for the players, better basketball overall.


Just have 32 teams, play home and home with everyone, 62 game schedule.  Much more fair overall.


Tons more rest for the players.  Less injuries.  Teams are less penalized for having injuries.  Just makes sense.


Only ones who lose is the owners with a few less home games.  So it will never happen but it would make the game much better overall.

I will miss the "Guards are for Chumps" line-up we ran out there for a bit against the Nuggets.


When Perry Jones is the smallest guy on the floor for your team, you are doing something seriously outside the box.


I'm not a Brooks fan, but that was insane and worked so got to give him credit.

Telfair totally functional for us tonight.  Did everything we needed.  Shot a bit too much in the fourth, but Im not sure we had a lot of options that were not out of gas.


If he can play like this, he is fine for keeping us afloat.
