    It’s early. We can win this if Westbrook will get his **** together in the second half. So far, the guy has been a catastrophe. Gordon and Harden need to drive, and if they can’t get the layup, pass out to House and Tucker.

    Good effort on coming back...just have to stay patient.

    I was hoping we'd just cut it to ten before half...that's still the goal IMO. Keep them from going on another big run.

    They can't, the 3-2 has the closest defender crashing down on the driver. You have to shoot to beat it.

    With the insane runs that a lot of the players on this team has first hand experienced going up against the Warriors for so many years, they know how to settle down and slowly chip away. Nothing these guys haven't seen before.

    Let's hope they can bust this zone.

    With the zone and our player not moving much on O it makes it too easy to cut off the passing lanes. Need to adjust to have more off ball

    High pick and rolls seem to be the answer here. Need to open up spacing by luring a defender out behind the ball handler and then driving hard and forcing them to collapse.

    The coach really needs to be strong and help WB out and keep him on the bench for the rest of the half. He wants to win so badly but TOTALLY out of control. He possibly cannot have handles this bad. It is sad to watch

    Will never enjoy watching Westbrook play. Too erratic.
