    7 for 33 with 7 turnovers. and not exactly being guarded by kawhi leonard.

    i can't imagine he's played worse than this.

    billy donovan is called an idiot when he tells kevin durant to shoot and he can't make anything.

    rick carlisle tells raymond felton to shoot most of the shots down the stretch and he makes long 2's and he's a genius.

    not that carlisle isn't a genius, it's just funny when the narrative is already written so that no matter what happens the narrative is true.

    the mavs gave up 3 layups up 1 and happened to get 2 misses and a shot 0.1 seconds late. presumably the thunder, who are actually only giving up 77.5 ppg in the series, will figure this out fairly easily.

    Westbrook to the naked eye had a wide open layup in that last couple of seconds right?

    The Thunder might have played sloppy, but, for a team as understaffed as the Mavs were, you have to give them hell for 48 minutes to even have a chance. After the thumping they took Saturday, it took some stones to show up the way they did tonight. I'll give them credit.

    without watching it again i thought it would be about as challenged as durant's layup was.

    Okc wins the next three. Just too many injured players on the mavs. Now, D Will looks out.

    At least Mavs have some heart and a good coach to make up for lack of talent.

    The biggest compliment I can give Dirk - I would trade any two players post Hakeem for the opportunity to have Dirk as a rookie on this franchise.

    I hate the feel of this team. They aren't fighters, they don't have heart. This team is the epitome of lack of effort. It's a complete 180 from what the Rockets have always been, even when we were stuck in the first round with Yao/Mac.

    I do not think they lack a lot of talent, their talent is just too old
