it’s fun to be on the winning end of a game like this after what many people consider the most “choke”-worthy team in the nba.
just some thoughts regarding the game:
i consider myself a big mavs fan but i admit we had no business winning this game.
who woulda thunk james harden would be such an X factor?
kevin durant looked so upset at the postgame conference. you could tell reporters were going to pick him apart and kevin just dgaf. the whole team looked shell shocked going into OT anyway.
if the thunder dont make the WCF next year, scott brooks gets fired. you heard it here first.
am i the only one glad we didnt have to watch jj barea attempt to play any defense where he’s not chasing someone or on the ground hoping for a charge? i cant imagine him having a big impact vs the heat/bulls considering those teams play significantly better defense but hopefully he can prove me wrong.
going into OT i was extremely confident in our team. not that our offense was great outside of dirk but because i knew that the thunder had just had their hearts ripped out (in their own home!) and eaten by the opposing team. and yes, that was just an appetizer for the true knockout.
dirk was incredible. and thats an understatement (for the 4th and ot)
kevin durant is still a kid. get off his back. (leave that to his backpack..)
russell westbrook made all-nba 2nd team this year. the player at his position that was first team? also the mvp of the league. stop acting like this guy isnt/cant be a superstar… i do think it’s funny how is biggest strength is also is biggest weakness. i wonder if this ultimately tears him and kevin apart.
i didnt think i was going to type this much.
shawn marion, the matrix. you’re difficult to figure out, but im glad you’re a maverick. great physical d tonight.
does anyone else want to see more of corey brewer?! i was soo excited when i heard he was considering signing here and when he did i was ecstatic! as the season continued he never became part of the rotation but i thought he had a chance to get great minutes against a young, athletic team like the thunder. at least he’s under contract for 2 more years and hopefully mark doesn’t trade him.
