    This is the type of game where the bench brigade can surely help. Guys like Brewer, Smith, and Terry can make all the difference here. Ibaka has always killed us with his length at the 4, but with shooters like Brewer and Terry, perhaps we can negate his impact from weak-side blocks. We'll need Harden to be in God Mode as always, and we'll need Dwight to snap out of this ridiculous funk he's in and get back to dominating on the inside. I don't need to see Dwight score 25 points. What I want to see is Dwight with 15 rebounds and 4 blocks.

    You do know that he's still rehabbing his ankle right? That's why he was sent to the Vipers to recover.

    That's the long and short of it. Every game's like going on a roller coaster with a track that changes randomly each time. Sometimes you'll have a great, exhilarating time, and sometimes you'll throw up a lung.

    Hopefully we stop by his old stomping grounds in Portland to really rejuvenate him before he plays again.

    A homeless manikin placed just a few steps outside his favorite bar would void any liability.

    I say we have about a 50/50 shot at this game. Hopefully we play harder after getting embarrassed last night.

    Westbrook has to have a inefficient game. We can't allow him to run off 10-15 points in a row. Bev needs to be tight defensively and hit his 3's. Trevor needs to make KD work for every point. Our bench needs to step up

    seems like it doesn't take much to shut down Dwight these days..

    got a good feeling about this game

    Harden at home vs his old team on national TV during an MVP season

    Looking forward to see if Trevor Ariza can contain Durant. Also want to see Beverley guard Westbrooke because in my opinion, I think he is the only guy who can guard him one on one successfully.
