    Actually cannot wait for D’Antoni to be gone. Credit to the way that he has evolved offense in the NBA, but other coaches have already learned how to design that into their offense. D’Antoni meanwhile after losing three games straight has not made a single adjustment. I miss Rick Adelman.

    What the hell are you talking about? He's 11-16. He has 27 points. He's averaging 30 points over the series against the Lakers. And he's shooting 40% from the 3pt against them.

    If you look at the series as a whole, no that doesnt reflect what you are saying. Harden and Westbrook lineups have been bad. Just because the lead got worse doesnt mean Russ isnt killing us. Lakers are shooting 55% from 3.

    We go "all in" on small ball only to be outplayed at small ball by other teams who can also go big....ugh.

    It’s also on Harden. He did not play like this the past few games and first part of this game when we were falling behind.

    Was that Harden's first step back 2 this game? Series!? Jordan dominated with fadeaway. So did Hakeem. Not EVERY shot has to be runners, layups, or 3s except Westbrook. Harden should also be in that exception.

    They got better every game and we got worse every game. We didn't do jack for adjustments.

    We shot threes all year, these any scrubs on their bench can get hot with no pressure.

    So many games where our offense just sh*ts the bed in the playoffs and we just go out with a whimper

    It's more fun watching the lakers sag off to allow a wide open 2 point shot and we kick it out for a missed 3.
    3 IS greater than 2
    BUT
    2>0
