    Should have called timeout wtf.

    I wish that dumbass Pacers game never happened. Now everyone is going to overcompensate and never call timeout for the last possession.

    So the inbred hicks in OKC get to celebrate tonight. This series will be a gentleman's sweep. The Thunder really have no chance to win this series. Rockets in 5.

    Still have yet to play the game we're capable of. Ariza has been a giant ZERO on offense, and Beverley missed a lot of key open shots today.

    just like i called, harden could only iso 3 after that first big 3.

    i kinda wanted him to shoot the 3 and just end it but the smart play is the drive, not settling for a contested 3. you're no roberson, you can't make contested 3's.

    such a piss away of a come back. 2 horrible contested 3's down 2 when we could have tied the game just like i called. it's like a lebron heat-check 3. you know it's coming, and it usually doesn't go in. at least drive and kick out when okc will collapse.

    When we saw we didn't have numbers we should have called a timeout. MDA out of bounds plays are pure money.

    Ugh, if James just goes at the basket instead of shooting 3s in those 2 possessions we might've at least had OT.
