    I expect McGuire to get some burn tonight to try limit Durant.

    I imagine the headlines will be something like "What is wrong with the Thunder?" and "Are they missing Harden?"

    Game 4 (TOR v. OKC) Nov 6: Raps Face tough Test Down in Oklahoma

    There is an article going around that is being sent as a direct message to you on twitter about losing weight and if you open it, your twitter account gets hacked and it starts tweeting that article randomly for you. Apparently Iggy opened the article and is now tweeting it.

    I know this because it has happened to my cuz.

    I don't know how rabid the fans and lethal the media of OKC but if they continue losing playing at the their home court, ownership will hear/read and feel it I think.

    Frankly, like Gwrighter said, this one could come down to Bargs because it's the only place where we may have a pretty good matchup. Ibaka is definitely capable of guarding on the perimeter but he's also the type to bite on fakes. If Bargs can drop an efficient 20+ we might stand a chance.

    I also have a feeling we'll be seeing more of McGuire tonight than usual, which I'm super okay with.

    Lowry is going to go at Westbrook hard and make a case for himself as one of the best pg's in the league early on this season.

    Should be a fun, fast-paced game no matter what.
    Lowry should hold his own against Westbrook but who is going to guard Durant---Bargnani, AA or Fields....Durant will go for 30+ tonight I suspect and we will have no answer defensively.

    Game 4 (TOR v. OKC) Nov 6: Raps Face tough Test Down in Oklahoma

    I think the Raps have had the most games on NBA TV from preseason to now than any other team.

    I agree, that's why I'm thinking we'll see McGuire on the floor for some pretty good spurts of time. I'm hoping this is where Jonas will show the part of his game that's polished because he's not up to par with his 1-on-1 defense yet but he's shown to be a good help defender on the block.

    Durant burns every team he faces

    the guys we really need to stop from getting hot is Martin + Ibaka, and hope Westbrook just shoots himself in the foot

    I hope you are right BUT. Okc coming off home loss will be very tough to beat. We may keep it close but so far I see no signs that we are ready to beat a power house on their home court.

    No offense to you gwrighter but that was the most ridiculous post I read from you. I know you can do better than that.
    Considering how well Demar and Lowry have played to start the season and that gwrighter was speaking relatively in terms of matchups I don't think it was really an understatement of anything.

    Lowry vs. Westbrook can be argued.

    But to say Derozan vs. Durant is moot after 3 preseason games, please spare me the effort of continuing this debate.

    Both Durant and Derozan should be able to get theirs on the offensive end.
