Random season endings
Watched OKC NOP tonight and enjoyed the heck out of the game. Good solid play, neither team excessively flopping, or complaining. Good ball movement for the most part. SGA and BI are both fluid dynamic players that are fun to watch. I hope these teams can progress without being screwed up by a prima donna, selfish, or Kyrie Irving type roster killer.
If only okc didn't have to play the nuggets they could have did some damage in the playoffs, I could see them beating the kings, suns, clippers grizzlies, they just don't have anything to slow jokic
Interesting consequence of the play in tournament that I'm sure has been pointed out but I've never really thought about: the top two seeds get less time to gameplan for their opponent bc of the tourney so you're giving the top two seeds a disadvantage which seems weird. Generally you think playing the "worse" team would supercede that but when things are this bunched up? Like would the nuggets rather play us or the clips and know it on day 1 vs having to wait until Wednesday?
Whether OKC gets into the playoffs or not, they are a very promising team. All their starters are below 25 with two of them rookies. Very impressive. I think they will beat the Wolves.
While the two J Wills and OKC's bench struggled to score, SGA, Giddey, and Dort put the team on their backs and carried them to victory.
Thunder beat the Pelicans 123-118. OKC will face the Wolves in Minnesota for the #8 spot of the West on Friday.
OKC going to win this
Thunder fouling the Pels to prevent them from shooting a three. Smart move.
Entertaining OKC-NOP game
Thunder up 115-114 with 28 seconds left.
Thunder up 96-87 thanks to a 39-24 3rd quarter.
Future sky thinking, if Kerr rides off into the sunset with the OG's, who do you want to replace him not named Mike Brown?
i like the OKC team - play well and dont talk like the grizzlies
Pelicans up 63-57 against the Thunder at halftime.
