    Harden was huge in the Bulls and Knicks game which led to the wins. Hope the team comes through for him in this game. Despite his comment about this just being another game, I know he wants to beat OKC. As long as they keep up the good ball movement and unselfish plays I think we have a chance. Harden just needs to not try to do too much which usually ends up with him forcing things.

    A bit worried the team will be too tired for this one, but it's no shame to lose to OKC. I hope we at least keep it close and just MAYBE pull off a win.

    I don't know why I have a good feeling for this game, but I do. Parsons is the key! If he can get Durant to guard him like he did Melo it will take all the pressure off of Harden. I expect Parsons to start hoisting them early.

    Familiar surroundings for Harden make for sure shots!

    Patterson is going to get BEASTED by Ibaka. I hope he gets 2 fouls early and Mook plays; he has more of a mean streak in him. Patterson comes back in for a good 12pts, but Mook will get all the hustle plays.

    I think Lin continues to gain confidence this game.

    Ask will get the better of Perkins.

    Westbrook will get angry and have a meltdown 4th qtr.

    ^ You didn't mention Martin though. Martin actually scares me a bit. He's fully capable of going off if you're too focused on Westbrook and Durant, which you almost have to be.

    I don't think we win this one. Back to back, extra flight to Minnesota, fresh opponents. i think they'll be tired unless the memorial really fires them up.

    I'm waiting on Asik destroying them, but if their feet is a little heavy, we know why.

    I'm worried about how tired they're going to be. Also, Martin will want to prove something and we know how good he is when motivated.

    perhaps there could be no harder opponent for thunders tonight...we're a very dangerous team...6-7 of our players could easily go +20 and we play a teamball so wo do not depend on a good night of one or 2 players...very dangerous...we have nothing to lose and everything to gain in the tonights game...the biggest rockets L this season was -11 i think...i think we will win or at least give a real hard time to thunders building our chemistry further and gathering playing time together...btw i wouldn't be surprised if we won by +20...we have a great TEAM...

    they don't scare me more than batum and aldridge. we can hang with these guys and if we cut the turnovers we can definitely win.
