I have no idea what to make of this series. Blazers have no Nurkic which means Kanter starts, but OKC completely limped into the playoffs sans the Houston win.

Kanter has some elite abilities. He also has some big holes that make him a liability at times but he was a great pick up. I actually thought they had an ideal two headed center situation before the injury

It was 18-16 in turnovers and 18-13 in Off boards, but Kanter had several key ones in the 2nd half....not sure what problem you're referring to. But no, OKC won't be that horrid from 3 again.

I wonder if Westbrook would ever be content playing a stocktonish role or if he is just going to keep shooting 20 times a game. Problem is that this team has 3 shot creators and 2 of them are super inefficient. 18% from 3 still feels like its something that should swing back OKC's way in OKC

Westbrook goes 5-20 with 6 turnovers, yet we're going to be reminded of how hard he plays and what a dog he is. He was rated most overrated player in the league for a reason...

He's already there. 2nd best and top 10 I would say. And CJ has been right there with them in this series. They're making a go at 'NBA's best backcourt if they keep it up and Klay does his ghost thing for the next few weeks.

In Hindsight I'm OK with his All-Star Snubs because it usually fires him up and makes him play better. Much like Westy trash talking him seems to have done.

Blazers need to stay focused though. They need to take one of these next 2 on OKC's court.

Unbelievable. Westbrick has killed the Thunder in every one of their losses.

I guess I had too much confidence that he would turn it around after game 3 but it looks like I was way wrong.

Coming back from 3-1 is possible, but not if Westbrick is going to continue to play like this.

man Westbrook has been so horrendous not only this game, but basically the whole season. you have to wonder if this season a aberration or is this who he is going to be from this point. if it wasn't an aberration this Thunder are going to need another miracle trade. Their cap is a disaster. RW, PG, Adams, and Schroder puts you past the salary cap by themselves and without a cap savings trade this team is already over the luxury tax next year.

this is who westbrook is.

without a question, the most overrated player in NBA history.

PG has arguably been a top 3 player this season, and they're still going to get a first round exit.

I mean PG was great most of the season, but he hasn't bee anywhere near top 3 great since the all star break. the guy has a 37% fg% and a 27.6 3pt% this series. he makes 2 more 3's in game one(he went 4/15) and this series is completely different.

OKC could have a very good run in the next 2 years if they can somehow manage to sign a reliable 3/D role-player or two. And yeah, just inexcusable to have Westbrook be the ISO call in that last attempt.

Portland is so fun though. Is Nurkic a possibility to return in the late 2nd round or WCF's? Dame is a killer, CJ has been great, and Nurkic is a real X-factor. They're definitely looking like a conference Finals team right now.

lol the Pelicans would laugh the Thunder off the phone with that offer.

i dont know man... AD could walk.... they would get westy forever who is still a star and would bring in the fans while the thunder become a legit threat with PG13/AD... I feel like its a win/win.

I don't know what to think of Donovan. OKC has no options. It's PG or Westbrook and both are trying score off talent. They are working way too hard every possession.

OKC could have a very good run in the next 2 years if they can somehow manage to sign a reliable 3/D role-player or two. And yeah, just inexcusable to have Westbrook be the ISO call in that last attempt.


They need a good SG who can move without the ball and defend. Danny Green would be perfect if Toronto doesn't want to pay out.

chuck just said it best.... they said the thunder have lost 12 straight games on the road in the playoffs.... that is 100 percent all on westy.... i cant think of another top 10 player that would let their team lose 12 straight road games in the playoffs.

i think you are honestly underestimating how actually stubborn and stupid westy is as a basketball player... you can have all the 3 and D guys you want you arent getting far in the west or even the east at this point if your 2nd best player thinks he is your best player and shoots 30 times even though he is a piss poor shooter all while always trying to take the biggest shot in an iso situation.

A game like this could serve to humble a man if he takes the time to objectively look back at it (knowing that PG is right there with him next year). Might be asking a lot of Westbrook, but we already saw him clearly back PG up in countless games this season and signed off on him as MVP even though he was averaging a triple-double again. And I do think having shooters around him clearly opens up/improves his game quite a bit. We'll see. He definitely screwed his team on that last possession though.


Regardless, I'd rather watch a Portland team with a fuego Lillard advance. They're more fun and Dame is edging his way towards superstardom if he pulls off another crazy series win in the 2nd round and can look equal battling Curry or Harden/CP in the Conference Finals.

Westy isn't a star though. He's a ballhog who is playing with a guy who might get the 3rd MVP slot and his team still only won 49 games. remember he will be 31 next year. His ts% hs dropped from 55.4-52.4-50.1 in the past 3 years. His defense has slipped and to top it all off he is going to make
year 1:38.2
year 2:41
year 3:43.9
year 4:46.6(Player Option)

the next 4 years. you can't build around that kind of salary unless your Giannis/Durant/Curry/Lebron/harden types.

He was like, game tied? At home? Free shot to max flex on Westbrook after his ISO miss to win the series? Dame Time. Was epic to be honest.

Watched that and the Sharks 3rd period 3 goal deficit comeback (down 1-3 in the series to force G7) to win in the last minute of the OT period. Most epic Hockey game I've ever seen.

Good hour of sports.

yea and hell i hope this humbles him esp with dame waving bye to him lol... i just think we have all given westy way to much credit in assuming he has finally changed his ways for the better... I loved the trip/doubs his first year but now he quite literally only gives a **** about stats and trying to be the guy... he def did give pg13 some shine a bit this year but that last shot i feel will forever be the westy we will forever see and the worst part is when this dude loses a step athletically because of eventual age his decline will be so very much worse then others. I would really really really look to get out from under him if i am the thunder as soon as the end of next season... Someone out there is dumb enough to give up a good bit.

its still insane that OKC had a 15 point lead with 7:45 to go and a 98.5 win probably and still lost. non westbrook thunder shot 36-55 and they still lost. I don't know why I hate okc this much, but the only thing I enjoy more them losing in the playoffs is the Jazz winning.

yup and I think getting out of that contract would be amazing on top of maybe PG13 and the success him and durant would have would possibly keep AD there with pg13.... The thunder wouldnt have the balls to do this but i personally would and i think they would have far more success.


Overall PG13 should have choose either Philly or the lakers but personally i am glad he didnt because Id rather have butler and his leadership.

Guys, the Thunder arenít going to trade Westbrook. Heís been so loyal to them. Harden wanted his own team to do it the hard way and Durant wanted easy rings. Westbrook convinced PG to stay and signed the long contract with no knowledge of whoíd be there.


Win or lose, Westbrook is a Thunder for life if he wants it.

Been seeing people say it was the greatest winning shot in history ... if he misses the shot they just go into overtime. I think to be the greatest game winner of all time then missing the shot has to mean the game is lost.

They gotta trade WB... hopefully to the Lakers. WB and Lebron stat padding and crying to the officials would just be so fitting. Crying together, losing together, watching their careers fade together ... it would be perfect.

well the way Westbrook and Dame went at it made it a crazy series.

they were down 15 in the 4th quarter. Dame ties the game at 32 seconds and now they're able to go get another possession. They got the stop, don't call a timeout.. dude shoots a "**** you" step back 3 from half court. that was ridiculous. when is the last time someone shot a step back from that far... dude had the ulimited range bage from 2K

to me... that was the best buzzer beater i've ever seen

yes I would also take Ingram, Hart, Kuzma, Ball, Zubac, 1st round pick + more over Westbrook

but the Pelicans didn't end up accepting it. The Lakers traded Zubac for one of the worst players in the NBA

so we don't know what the **** is going on there lol
