I'm not rooting for either team; I like them both, for very different reasons. But I did vote for OKC because I think that the Grizz can't stop KD, Westy & co. 4 games out of seven; nor in this game in particular. I think OKC makes the correct adjustment this game; the Grizz win #4. And it becomes a best of 3.

That would be tough but not near-impossible for the Grizz to win, given two games in OKC, including a game 7.

Good first half for the grizz. They need to get easier looks for ZBO and Gasol though

Pablonovi
04-24-2014, 08:43 PM
What does DFish do to deserve so many minutes on such a top-quality team. iirc, he gets 5th or 6th most minutes. He doesn't score much, he isn't fast enough to defend many people. So what is it?

Pablonovi
04-24-2014, 08:45 PM
The two biggest differences I'm seeing early in this game: The Grizz are continually beating OKC players on the first step. and the grizz D is hounding OKC all over the court.

Looks like OKC has to drive a lot more, too much settling for outside shots. Especially with Gasol with 2 fouls.

Looks like they need a new coach.

I can agree with this with most teams you see a certain type of playstyle or identity. With OKC it's just usually the Durant or Westbrook show.

04-24-2014, 09:01 PM
Come get it babe is getting on my nerves. They need to start putting like a 5 song rotation for the playoffs so we don't have to hear the same one over n over. I think the only one that didn't starting getting on my nerves was Amazing

HEY OP OR MODS,
Shouldn't the poll be closed, seeing as we're deep into the game. I believe it was 2 OKC 0 Grizz until well into the game - if that matters any.

Red_Pill

They need to stop settling for jumpers. Memphis is a good team, but OKC is much better. Can't believe they're playing this poorly. Brooks is awful.

I haven't watched enough OKC ball this year. Are you guys saying that Brooks consistently underperforms as their coach; i.e. he doesn't make good enough adjustments (like we ARE seeing in this game so far)?

Not a very artistic looking game; I guess this is typical Grizz.

04-24-2014, 09:11 PM
If OKC can go into the half only down by about 5-8, they'd be lucky; this has been one ugly looking half.

For sure. He'll be the scapegoat no matter what (if they lose). He always was. One bad pass will negate those two huge shots...because that's what people do. Even though he was no more of an issue than KD was tonight. In fact, he was a bit better.

Looking quite a bit like the classic case of a team struggling all game to catch up; and then not having enough to keep going. Now it's the Grizz's turn showing character.

The same reason Westbrook took the 3. The team was desperate for a 3. And they needed it fast. Plus it's not like they are going to draw up a play. The designed play is to somehow inbound the ball to Durant. Then iso 1-on-5.

He'd be excoriated for days. If we're itching to call him the game's best, he's gotta get the criticism that comes with it. Fair or not...if for no other reason than not being hypocrites.

I'm not even saying I agree with it. I'm certainly not gonna run around saying he's not clutch and a choker or whatever...but there is an obvious double standard that he's benefiting from right now. That's all. If you can't see it, so be it. I agree with what you said -- it is a team game and blame is so much more complex than just one player deserving it all -- but that rationale has NEVER existed. He's got it good: he doesn't get much flack unlike the recent stars before him.

LeBron got **** on lesser teams. Chris Paul got **** on lesser teams. Dirk got **** on lesser teams. Nash got **** on....teams. Kobe got it when he first became "the man". Jordan got it before he won. Etc. etc. etc.

KD is teflon. It's just weird to me.

You just don't get it. Lebron is a huge arrogant babied by league a-hole. He says the dumbest stuff and isn't extremely 'skilled' which people want from their superstars. Hes done so much bs that ppl dont like, like the decision, teaming with Dwade, insulting fans, etc. Ppl dont like his character at all. They like durants bettet.

That being said, Durant looked bad and should be held accountable for much of okcs losses. while Westbrook is ridiculous and out of control hes actually looked a lot more determined to win.
