Simple fun question. I see the Thunder crowd is getting pretty loud, Conley bangs a 3 and silence.

Would you rather be at home and and on fire hitting every shot?

Or would you rather be on the road, in the middle of a very close game, and you're on fire silencing the crowd?

I voted home because i've had my career high 3 pointers made at home (only 7, but still) and with the crowd going crazy it gave me chills and is just a great feeling.

its more fun to play in front of the home crowd. Ex. GSW Steph Curry game 4 vs Nuggets or Steph Curry silencing the crowd game 1 in SA.

Must be a great feeling either way lol

Well the Lakers crowd is always asleep so you can't tell the difference.. so I guess away.

Home gives more of a goose bump feeling. I'd prefer being cheered at home over being away and silencing a crowd/booing you.

Depends in age really ... A younger team wants it at home, a group of vets love the road. You see how young teams pander and feed off the energy, while for example the Kobe/Shaq teams would see Fisher, Fox, and Horry enjoy the road daggers they would hit

I would say being on fire at home. However it would of been great for Beverely when everytime he was booed by that OKC crowd, he would just hit his shot and that crowd turned into crickets

Best case neutral court where both fan bases are into it. But I'd say on the road because you can hear the opposing fans anxiety rising

I've never played in a game/league where the fans of the opposition booed me when I hit some shots so I can speak for a player.

As a fan, there is nothing better than hitting a 3 in a close game and watching the crowd go nuts. Watching the crowd during Shumpert's dunk today was awesome to watch.

Always a great feeling when your home crowd is cheering you on but when the away crowd reacts to a sick dunk or shot I love to see that. Like when VC got that lob vs. the Clippers a while back and even though it was a close game the whole crowd just stood up and erupted the moment they saw him on a fast break.

give me the boos. I've always played my best when people are talking smack and giving me all kinds of hell.

For me.....I feel like it's nothing like hitting a big shot in your own building and hearing the roar of the crowd

It's definitely away for me. I would also rather make a clutch defensive play at the end of a game to silence a crowd than make a big shot.

Varies with the round:

For the first 3, I would love to shut a crowd up on the road. Ending all hope for the opposing team on their own court would just be just awesome, especially in the elimination game.

Championship series, would want to be at home celebrating with the fans after.

When I played hs ball I used to love shutting up the crowd on the road.

I don't think there's anything with a better "wow" factor than someone hitting a buzzer-beater in an away game and the crowd goes silent. I absolutely love when that happens. Call me a pessimist :P
