    Russ looks like a cross between the Karate kid and a pint of Mootopia.

    Props to whoever said that E.G. and Williams would show up for tonight's game.

    I think it is a given that when our starting 5 struggles to score, our 6th men are expected to fill those needs. Morey should be given a lot of credit for getting these two dudes. They helped us steal game 2 from a very motivated Thunder team.

    Yeah but again, i'm not saying he should score 25 points per game, just saying that those splits between home and road games are kinda worrisome, i mean, wouldn't you want to have him 100% regardless if we're playing at home or on the road? We basically already know that when we play at home he'll shot bad...

    I see what you did there, BB! BTW, you JUST changed your avatar? -- the new one is freaking INSANELY cool. Can the Rox make that their new logo? How sweet would that be?

    Someone asked him what he thought about his stat line. He said I don't give a f. We lost.

    Yep, didn't expect Lou personally but he was big, without him we would've been down 12 at the half probably.

    Some funny (hilarious to me) stats from the series.

    Thus far, Russ is 23-69 on the series, for a total of 33%.

    Andre Robertson, Taj Gibson, Steven Adams, Domantas Sabonis, Enes Kanter are a combined 35-66, for a total 53%

    So... thank god the thunder have no real gameplan other than Westbrook and Oladipo laying bricks from the perimeter, because things could actually be competitive if the ball was shared at all.

    For funsies, Oladipo is 5-26, at 19% through 2 games.

    I don't think we disagree that much, but with the first 3 quarters of the game fresh on my mind I do think they played better as a team during those quarters and beat up on the rockets.

    Of course, we went on that run when westbrook sat (I'm in no way suggesting his teammates are better without him), but when he got back, instead of continuing to incorporate his teammates while still taking some shots, i thought he took way too many shots. Maybe it's just that his teammates are passing the ball back to him, but this may suggest some sort of conditioning throughout the season. I think if those teammates were on harden's team all season, not only would they have more confidence to shoot, but they would have also been more effective offensively.

    Did Dipo really call out Westbrook like that in the locker room? That's so bad ass. Bout time someone on his team stood up andsaid it
