@ElMexiThunder I agree. As soon as we came out in game 2 playing terrible offense. I got a sick feeling. We started playing to THEIR game instead of forcing our game on them. That's been the difference in the series to me.
2 years, 9 months ago on Thunder back themselves to elimination in Game 4, 104-98
@alvarex @supreme35 you can't win with that
If you look at the stat sheet. We should've won. We won in almost every category. I can't put my finger on it...killin me
Is it possible that Miami is just simply the better team THIS YEAR??
@bzzt you're a genius...thank you. MAKING MY POINT OKC!!
@supreme35 and they made their 3's uncontested...did we even make a 3??
KD and Westbrook look really really down. Not good...but they can right the ship
@SB718 @Lost Ones @ThunderStruck2412 @criznazy53 for the center position duh..
@ThunderStruck2412 @bzzt @Lost Ones yeah but it's not solely won on effort. effort + efficiency = wins
@ThunderStruck2412 @Lost Ones @criznazy53 Well obviously he's better than anyone else besides Ibaka. So yeah, he helps some. That's not what I'm saying. I'm saying he's not a guy I want back on my team next year. Gotta find a way to get somebody quicker and with more team offense ability. it's how we play for crying out loud!!
@ThunderStruck2412 @bzzt @Lost Ones scoreboard
@ThunderStruck2412 @Lost Ones never said he's the reason. but he's DEFINITELY not ever going to be a factor either way. that's the problem. he's just a big body out there. As a matter of fact, that's all anyone ever says about him! "He's a big body that can be physical and tough and blah blah blah..."
@Lost Ones @ThunderStruck2412 exactly. second highest paid player i believe. Look at the plus/minus lineups with him in it. usually having to make up for lack of offense. halfcourt sets are terrible to watch with him in.
@Lost Ones @Nick the Quick 4 Life @ThunderStruck2412 Well...you're wrong. And why do you think Coach's get fired every year and players stay. Case closed
I think tonight was reason number 101 why Kendrick Perkins needs to be traded for somebody. He was acquired for the sole purpose of covering Bynum. That's not enough to me. He is a liability on defense. He fouls, can't run, can't shoot, can't pass, and is too slow to cover pick and rolls. The league is moving away from physical down low, post players. He's just not as important as Scott Brooks thinks he is. I think he's been forced to to be a starter ever since we traded for him. Sorry Perk...I just can't defend him any more.
@Nick the Quick 4 Life @ThunderStruck2412 I agree, I'm not saying coaching isn't important. Just that there comes a point when you roll the ball out there and say to the players, "you're a professional...what else can I tell you. Go get it done."
@ThunderStruck2412 NBA's not really about coaching. it's about chemistry and personnel management. Other than that, it's all up to the players. I look at this series as being their first Finals of many more to come. I just don't want them to lose 4 in a row!!! Not like this!!
Chris Mannix of SI.com had the best article by far. PLEASE READ SCOTT BROOKS

@ThunderRegulator What I always say when this redundant topic comes up (as it rightly should), is that Russ is a 23 year old PG who has alot of burdens and responsibility to his team. You don't see Steph Curry, or Rondo or any of those guys have the kind of pressure that he has had to deal with. Because they've never been relied on that much. Derek Rose is the only other player I can compare him too, and D came into the league with a better jumpshot, pass and defense than RW.
2 years, 9 months ago on Horrific start costs the Thunder Game 2, 100-96
Thunder played terrible in the first half again, and yet it still took a missed foul call on LeBron when Durant took the last shot for them to lose. This series is ours to lose. Miami isn't exactly a "hostile environment". Let's take this series on their homecourt OKC!!!
