Wow - what a win by the Thunder.

The 26-point come-from-behind win is the biggest rally in Thunder history.

Man, I am spent! :lol:

The starters are a boss unit.

My good friend, Scrub Nader, played 4 minutes in the first half and was a total wreck. Billy benched him in the 2nd half, and we farking won! :lol:

Sorry, Nader, but you need to go to China.


PG is a monster!


Call me a contrarian MB, but I actually like the look of Nader. I've seen more out of Nader with his limited opportunities, than I ever saw from Abrines who was given plenty.

I agree, the starters are a well balanced unit.


I couldn't disagree more. Abrines is so much better than Nader.

There might be something in Nader's 3-point shot, but his lack of awareness on both sides of the ball is alarming. He just doesn't know how to defend - at all. And he has these drives to the rim where he ends up missing horribly - these happen every game. :lol:

He also has zero athleticism.

I don't think he'll ever be good enough to carve out a career in the NBA. I think the Thunder waive him in the off-season.

I'd love to be wrong, but...

Good win for the Thunder tonight, especially with no Schroder or Grant. Fat Ray actually played ok, he still called his own number most of the time but at least he hit his shots. PG was immense again.

Wins over the Rockets & now the Blazers have put a bit of daylight between them & the chasing pack & they're within striking distance of 2nd place.


Fat Ray's defence >>> Schroder's defence.

He was freaking fantastic! Busted his ass out there.

PG is a top 5 player in the NBA this season. I never thought he could reach these heights. Dude is a beast.

Steve did a good job of blowing up the Portland PnR today (and boxing out for his guys), but he is banged up to all hell. :uhoh:

Turned his left ankle, again, early in the game. Also finished the game with his right shoulder strapped up.

He is playing insane minutes. One more game before he gets a much needed week off...

I didn't see the game, but how the hell did Steven Adams play 35 minutes and only get 1 rebound? I love the guy, but his rebound stats are starting to disappoint me.

Great win for OKC by the way.

Remember he doesn't really go for defensive boards, especially if his opposite number is a strong rebounder. He'll box them out all game and let Russ start the break.

Russ + PG each got a triple-double in the same game today. A Thunder first for a duo.

Adams sacrificed rebound numbers for that to happen.

With Adams on the floor the Thunder have a defensive rebounding percentage of 76.2. The Jazz currently lead the league at 76%.

With Adams off the floor the Thunder have a defensive rebounding percentage of 68. The Phoenix Suns currently are bottom of the league at 68.8%.

When Steve recently sat against the Magic, the Magic had a season high in offensive rebounds.

Further to add, Westbrook leads the league in uncontested rebounds. Steve ranks highly in contested rebounds, and gets no freebies out there.

He's doing his job - but as I said before, he's banged up and needs a rest.

It really annoys me how much the Rockets juice Harden's numbers. He's playing far more minutes than he should and it's going to hurt them but I don't think they care. He's 4 mpg more than Giannis in 3rd :uhoh:

Would love if the freak or PG took MVP and I think they will. The thunder have been incredible with a tough schedule.

Huh? They've played the easiest schedule so far of anyone in the West. They've got the toughest remaining schedule in the league, though.

Kings tied for 8th now. 8)

I thought their recent run was tough but having checked I obviously misremembered

Watched the 6ers just now and that 5 looks the goods, Harris was getting whatever he wanted.

There aren't a lot of easy games in the league in general, particularly for teams in the West. The NBA is great right now and it will be even better next year if/when the Warriors lose Durant. Would be a wide open race if he leaves and doesn't go somewhere stacked.

I hope that happens. As well as AD winding up at the Celtics.

I've noticed that the in the games I've seen over the last 2 weeks. He doesn't look like he's moving as well on his feet as I've seen him in the past.

I can't see that happening. KD hasn't played without another all star calibre player on his team since....his rookie year perhaps?

He might want to change that narrative, but he also definitely wants max money, which I don't think the Warriors can do while keeping their original core which seems to be something of a priority. He can also sign with a team in a big market that might not have a superstar at this point but would instantly be a contender with him, like the Clippers or Nets. I guess DLo is technically an all star, although he's not really a top 24 player in the league, which is what I would take to be all-star caliber. Even if he signs with the Knicks and they sign another star, I wouldn't really consider that a stacked team. Stacked is going to a team that already has multiple all stars and makes them ridiculously good a la the Warriors currently.

Yeah, but their schedule in recent weeks - when they've won 11 of 12 - has been pretty strong.

They've played Philly, Milwaukee, Boston, Portland (twice) & Houston and have won all but one of those games.

Yeah, but their schedule in recent weeks - when they've won 11 of 12 - has been pretty strong.

Combined win percentage (teams they played twice counted double) of the last 12 teams they've played is .511. That's slightly harder than average, although probably about average for a team in the West. Nearly every 12 game stretch is going to look tough to the naked eye this year because there are fewer truly shit teams than normal and there are a lot of good teams this year.

Lakers choke down the stretch in ATL :lol:

The point being they've won 11 of 12. It may not have been a murderer's row in all 12 games but they've beaten all the banana skins while beating almost all the contenders too.

Ummm, are we sure the Lakers are going to make the playoffs?

IIRC they have one of the hardest remaining schedules too.

And my point from the beginning was that they haven't played a tough schedule, not that they haven't won some games.

Everyone shitting on the Pacers but the ‘contender’ Sixers are 1-7 this year against the Bucks, Celtics, and Raptors.

Celtics 6-2 against the same (with Sixers subbed in).

Their April schedule is BRUTAL - Warriors, Clippers, Blazers, Jazz and Thunder, :shock: their only saving grace being that 4 of those 5 games are at Staples center.

I wonder if part of that is that Simmons lack of an outside shot hurts more against the better defensive teams.

Thunder sign Markieff Morris.

Decent pick up, he could definitely help out.

IF he's healthy, that's a big boost to the roster. :thumbup:

I thought we were no chance to get him...
