  1. NBA PLAYOFFS cont'd - Riders on the Storm

    Agree with this take. After the hell trying to get open against OKC's length, the Warriors will be salivating at running pick-and-rolls off of whoever Irving and Love are covering. The challenge the Cavs present is they're much better at spacing and 3's than the Thunder. If they're as hot as they were against Atlanta, they could definitely win the series. I just would be surprised to see the Warriors fail now after the crucible of the Thunder series. Either way, should be a lot of fun with the possibility of some ridiculous barnburners.

    Well like I said I think he should stay in OKC at least for a year. If he does, some day, get sick of Westbrook dominating the ball Boston is probably the best fit in the East to challenge Cleveland. Lot of young talent. endless draft picks to either reinforce the roster or trade for another star and a great coach. On that team he'd get all the shots he wants and should actively try to be a 35 PPG guy. But it's more interesting to me if he stays, builds off what he showed these last two weeks, and really focuses on making himself into a dominant defensive player to go with the scoring. I hope the crushing disappointment of this series fuels him to max out his considerable gifts next year. Feel like the MVP could be his again if he wants it.

    It's definitely an easier road in the East but the issue is he'll almost definitely never be able to play with another teammate as good as Westbrook. Even on a bad night by his standards the guy put up a 19/7/13. And you can make a case based on this series the Thunder are the most talented team in the NBA, they just have spacing issues on offense (Roberson is the ultimate dual-edged sword) and they've shown to be head-cases in tight games. Still these things can be worked on but there's no substitute for talent and it's hard to imagine him ever ending up on a more talented team than this Thunder squad.

    The funny thing is I'm a Wizards fan. I just appreciate the level of skill on display.

    Dude, this was among the highest level of basketball I've ever seen. You had an OKC team playing so out of their mind they made a 73 win team look like a JV squad for a couple games. The fact GS was able to rise above a team that was bigger and more athletic than them with a barrage of absurd level of difficulty 3 pointers being shot over the outstretched arms of 7 footers is one of the most incredible things I've seen. Not to mention Game 6 is an instant classic and will be replayed endlessly on NBA TV as among the greatest playoff games of the 2000s.

    Warriors would have a better chance to close this out if Draymond could catch a damn pass.

    Durant saved the Warriors season against the Spurs and is trying his damnedest to do it here. The determination is there....
  9. NBA PLAYOFFS cont'd - Riders on the Storm

    Never! And I'm still not convinced this game is done...
  10. NBA PLAYOFFS cont'd - Riders on the Storm

    Warriors are shooting a higher percentage from 3 than they are from 2...or at the FT line....

    In fairness, it was really the only thing that was at all open for them. Thunder defense was absolutely smothering everything else in the first half. Fortunately the Warriors have two guy who can basically create their own 3's when nothing else is there. 29-12
