    i think people are over-simpifying okc going big and others being stupid for not doing it.

    for one, okc won the last game by going small with ibaka at center. and even in this game, they have big guys like adams and ibaka who can move. in the game golden state lost to san antonio, danny green blocked a curry 3 and they said it was his first 3 (maybe jumper) blocked all season. steven adams has blocked 2 curry jumpers in this series. not everyone has bigs who can do this. most teams give up a million points and can't being to make up for it with rebounds or paint defense and that's why they try to go small.

    Thunder took their foot off the gas. They came out with little energy.

    Westbrook is the new Hakeem who dominated the then MVP David Robinson.

    ******* Westbrook playing out of mind on both sides. Tske notes Harden, that's how you get it done.

    So the "mvp" runs over westbrook and of course no foul is called. Wow!

    Curry took down Westbrook, that was an OBVIOUS foul and a ref was right in front of the play.

    Can't call fouls on the golden child of the NBA tho :rolleyes:

    man that westbrook rebound to end the quarter.

    can't tell if curry fouled westbrook or westbrook flopped. klay took the shot way too early though but okc didn't capitalize.

    Russell Westbrook has only one speed setting: TURBO.

    they said he has 5 turnovers but it feels like 15.

    still worried he'll score 24 this quarter. :)

    If okc wins this game and you have to bet $1000 on who wins game 5, who are you going with?

    OKC was willing to completely give up the lead but GS wasn't able to close it out. They expended a lot of energy during the comeback and it might be tough for them to finish the game strong.

    KD looked like his normal self after checking back in.

    If the Warriors pull this out without some fluke event happening, they will earn my respect. Doesn't look good for them now.

    Agree. There's a lot of oversimolification going on, which is common for know it alls, who need to be quick to try to explain what everyone thought was not doable...destroying Pops and Kerr in back to back series.

    It's a shamw, because it takes away from what Donovan is doing on defense to two powerful motions teams, and it also simply misses out on the beauty of it...which could write a new book on motion defense

    Durant is lethal.

    The beauty of this game is Westbrook and Durant know the deal. They know no one is going to gift them this series. There have been many no calls on Durant and Westbrook . There is very little looking at the begging for calls. No whining.

    that was a "no, no, yes" shot from durant there.


    obvious foul on green on durant but maybe roberson fouled speights.
