    it may have pointed out in the game thread... but seeing (A LOT) of fans leave 3-5 min early.. from a playoff game.. THAT WE ARE WINNING... makes me absolutely sick.

    To be fair it was a blowout on a Sunday night. A lot of people (including myself) had to work this morning. I stayed to celebrate with the Rowdies in the corridor and didn't get home till 2am but still other people needed to get home to snooze ya know.

    A decent amount of people in my section headed out but a lot looked like families and I didnt realize what time it was, it was fairly late. I dont blame them because it was a blowout at that point.

    By the time I got to bed it was close to 1 - I had to wake up at 430 to make it back to Fort Worth and into work. I am paying for it right now but well worth it.

    Blew em out by 30 mid 4th Q. If you see Bobby Brown coming in during a playoff game it's time to dip.

    I left early when Bobby Brown came in. No craps given. Great game and now I am 3 hours into the work week. I hope to do the same thing Wednesday.

    Couple things,

    We're in Texas. When we play on Sunday, we have briskets that we need to tend.

    That wasn't the issue the real problem was there being empty seats. That's just disgraceful. Every damn seat should've been filled. I look at the sorry Texans game with 4x the capacity and their seats are filled every week and they haven't done a damn thing in 15 yrs to warrant it. Houston sports fans need to get their damn priority straight

    As a kid, one of the first thing my parents taught me was to mind my own business.

    The earlier you left, the better the fan you were. Letting OKC know the game was ALREADY OVER.

    Tbf, it was around 10:30 on a Sunday night when the human victory cigar Bobby Brown entered the game. I'll forgive those who left early this 1 time.

    People get upset at the silliest things. Save your disdain and disgust for something that really matters.

    Did you go to the game? When the lineups were being announced there was no empty seat from my POV.

    People do happen to get up and use the restroom, grab a beer, get some grub... I'm pretty sure they're allowed to do that throughout the game. For once I can say attendance and contribution from the fans in terms of providing energy was on point last night. Lots of Thunder lovers to gawk at too!

    Those food lines have a terribly long wait sometimes. Missed almost a full quarter waiting for a freaking pre crappy pizza once. At a certain point you're left wondering if you should leave the line but you think there's only two more people in front of you how long can it be...but its almost always longer than you expect.

    I'm ok with fans leaving. It let's the Thunder know they are worthless. In fact fans should have left at the end of the 3rd quarter :D

    The only thing is if lower bowl fans leave, upper bowlers should get a chance to go to lower bowl

    San Antonio fans left the Memphis game early too and their game was a blowout.

    If this is the worst thing we have to complain about this playoffs, we are in really good shape.

    People who aren't at games that complain about people who are at games is hilarious.

    I've been to 26 games this year, including last night. I'll leave when I want. I give this organization my fair share of money.

    I am curious. I have not been to many playoff games. But what building was better for noise during a game. I went to Dallas game 2 in 2015 and it was nice and loud but did not seem like anything compared to Game 5 against Phoenix in 94 after we came back from 0-2 (losing first two at home). Is Toyota Center of the old Summit more intimidating for visitors?
