14 for 20. 10th 40 plus game this season. AND HE SAT THE FOURTH QUARTER. Westbrook had a triple double btw, also sat the 4th.

As they should.

According to Dominique it doesn't count because it's the 76ers.

A triple double in 20 minutes is unreal. I have a feeling that's never happened.

Westbrook is the story of this game. Impressive performance by KD but a trip dub playing less than half the game is just ludicrous

The craziest part of Westbrook's night was probably the 8 assists he had in the first 6 minutes of the game.

The smart thing to do.

When LeBron played garbage minutues to get to 61 points everybody was loving it. But when he came out and played no defense, rebounding or really much of anything in a loss against the Rockets everybody wants to say he had an excuse because he was tired.

Well then don't play in blowouts dumbass. In your 11th year in the league what do you expect to happen. He's not 25 anymore.

What Durant's doing is great but I think it's only amazing people because we haven't seen scoring like this in while. I think in the early 2000's there were a handful of players in the league that were scoring like this. One of them being Kobe who of course scored 61 in 3 quarters with no garbage time.

The game has changed. The only way to rack up points consistently is to be more efficienct because coaches no longer tolerate low FG%.

Not consistently as efficient as we're seeing these two score though.

As a quick example... KD's on his way to being the first player since Jordan to average over 31 points on over 50% shooting.

Well he sat in the 4th quarter he could have inflated his stats like Lebron and stayed in the game after the opposing team was completely destroyed but he's not into stat padding it seems.

And he wasn't even playing his natural position. Ever since Sefolosha went down Durant's had to play the 2 guard because Perry Jones has to inserted into the starting lineup and plays the Small Forward.

Bruno
03-05-2014, 03:37 PM
dominance. they were up 22 points going into the 4th so they didn't need to play.

when LBJ went off for 61 the Heat entered the 4th quarter up by 16 points. only reason why the Bobcat coach put all his guys back in the game in the 4th was because Spo was playing James. the game was over after three. thats why its nice to go for these obscene scoring records when you're younger. its hard to justify the playing time in blowouts when you're pushing 30 and trying to take your team to its 4th straight finals appearance (something that hasn't been done since the 80's for a reason- its exhausting). well see if they get away with it, well see if this heat team has their legs come june; it's year four.

If Westbrook played 36 he'd have put up something like 20/20/15 with 10 TO's hahah. I love that dude. And we probably see 50/10/5 out of KD on ~70% FG if he jumps in for a few minutes of the 4th. Those would've been some lines for the ages. All in all, they'll take it.

Funny that this game had the largest game line (vegas) I have ever seen and they still crushed it.

Whats the difference? Bron has sat out plenty such games and Im sure Durant has stayed in his fair share of lopsided games as well, Bron is gearing up for the playoffs, hes coasted long enough, time get that playoff conditioning back. Its not like any of us discount Kobe's 35PPG season despite many of those points coming in garbage time. In fact, the leagues leading scorer led the league in them, big whoop.

You guys talk as if this isn't a career low in MPG for Bron, seems to me he mostly logs heavy minutes when Wade doesn't suit up and gets more rest in between. With the playoffs around the corner, I would expect those minutes to go up or for Wade to start playing more consistently.

Hardly doubt it cost them the win, some days you just dont have it. No guarantee either way

Tough to argue that he was not clearly dog tired mid/late in the 4th of the Charlotte game and clearly out of it @Houston. That's nearly impossible not to be on a road b2b against a tough opponent. No b2b's in the playoffs, and at was widely noted he "coasted" in the first half. His energy level is lower than when he was 25 and wasn't going on finals playoff runs every year, that's pretty clear I think.

Career low for minutes? Yea it is. He's 6th in the league in minutes though.

If I was the coach and I saw that my only way to win a title is tired I'm sitting him out a game or lowering his minutes.

Apathetic defense... literally didn't have the legs to hit a single shot outside of 2 feet all game... 1 for 7 in the 2nd half...

He was dead, dude.

Bruno
03-05-2014, 04:09 PM
LBJ played 41+ minutes in a blowout so he could crack 60. I would have wanted to do the same thing.

But it exhausted him. He put up his 8th lowest TS% of the season and his lowest TS% since January 4th in the loss against Houston. i don't think it could be argued that it didn't make him more tired (one rebound in 37 minutes isn't very LBJesque). now Miami is two games behind Indy. if one game ends up deciding HCA in the ECF... ouch.

although he is fortunate to have a coach who plays him less than 38 minutes per game. I'd suggest i'd be even lower if not for Wades health. I think it was an irresponsible yet irresistible coaching decision on Spos part. LBJs post game interview was particularly enjoyable "i just gotta thank god for making me so amazing" :laugh2:

not sure how big of a difference it would have made when Bosh and the rest of the frontcourt defense got their ***** handed to them by Howard/Jones.

to be fair, you try going through life never being told no, being told you are the greatest, and then perform like James, while reading/hearing everyday how amazing you are, and try not to have some arrogance...

I just want all great athletes to be like Jerry Rice, Calvin Johnson or Larry Bird (**** talking is great, just not the biggest fan of boasting). But if you put the work in and are great, **** it, be as annoying as you want. It's up to others to shut you up.

Sounds extreme, looked like he was gambling more than usual, his defense hasn't been his strongest suit this year tho.

My argument is that he couldve been dead/off either way, and after the night he had before, I would actually expect regression with his jumpshot efficiency.

remember too, we are in the age of the media being a click away. You could stay away from all the attention, and what the media said about you when Rice or Bird played. Nowadays, its literally impossible to not constantly hear what everyone on earth says about you. Factor in these guys come in much younger, and the maturity level isn't there, and also factor in how much we kiss young star's ***** nowadays compared to back then, and its just on another level.
