Thunder are -5 on the line.  They are rested.  We played a really tough game last night.  Westbrook is a guy that is a lot faster than Harden so I don't know that Thornwell will be able to keep up with him.  Maybe Jawun Evans will try and slow him down a little bit.  Need Jordan to outplay Adams to have a chance in this game.  Plus, George and Melo can't be hot from the field.  Need to defend them and when we are not defending them we need them to miss shots.  Plus, Harrell and Lou need big games for us to win this one.  Tough back-to-back schedule for this game.  Possible we pull it out but not very likely.

It is critical to either win tonight or Sunday against Portland.  Drop both of these games and we are in deep do do.  Win both and we are in pretty good shape.  At least I am happy that we are playing meaningful games in mid-march.  This is a hard working team that does not quit which is what I like about it.  Much better since we dumped Griffin in my opinion.

I have to give props to Beverly.  This guy has been traveling with the team and being their biggest cheerleader.

Can Doc find a way to get more minutes for Harrell? Dekker and Wes don't really deserve any minutes and I know you have to go on match ups, but he needs more than the 13-15 when he is that productive in his minutes.

Yeah he has, I do notice that too, he seems like a really good teammate.

I remember earlier in the season when Blake was hurt, he wouldn't travel with the team.

Guess the NBA doesn't want us in the playoffs this year.

Russ, George, and Melo combined for only 9 points at the half. Every one else is killing us.

Austin just blocked the shit out of Westbrook, that was impressive. Cut out the turnovers guys

Rivers is outplaying Westbrook, Clips within 2. George is hurting us per usual. Adams also playing well for them and good old friend Corey Brewer saves his best for us like always.

If we had traded Blake for Harris, Boban and Bradley before the season started instead of mid February, we would be locked into the 3 seed going away right now.

Hopefully, one positive of not making the playoffs is the firing of Doc

Amen to that!!! I guess later's better than never.

 Btw, a quote I'd like to leave here:

Thanks!  I listened to the whole thing and agree.  I've never been an Iverson, DRose, Melo, guy either.   Westbrook and Wall are good star players, but they aren't the superstar level players that the media makes them out to be.

Iverson was in a class above any of those you mentioned. He was a superstar.

What does Corey Brewer eat before he plays against us? There's no reason he should kill the Clippers as much as he does except he hustles

Doc will want to sign him to a big contract now.

Lou was guarding him. Thornwell and Austin were on PG13 and Westbrook.

He barely needs to be guarded, Clippers were just throwing him the ball sometimes and letting him get lay ups

No we shouldn't, 48 games is a huge difference.

It's a realistic "if". So bad analogy.
