It's the playoffs KS. At some point the superstar has to take over or at least try to. From Cleveland's perspective it's better to have a tired Lebron trying to force the action compared to Smith and others on that team.

OKC bossing the champs again. I fully expect them to go back to Oracle 3-1. Question is can they close it out at the Dubs?

72 points from OKC at the half. That's, uhm, decent production , no?

The Golden State Warriors are getting worked in Oklahoma! I'm from California; well I lived out there for about 12 years, but that jerk kicking Adams in the gonads twice over 2 games made me turn! I don't like dirty play even with a team fave! If they go down 3-1 tonight, which it looks as if it will with a 24 point lead in the 4th and only a few minutes on the clock, the series will be just about over! Even the genius of the MVP (Curry) won't be able to save them on wobbly/gimpy legs! No No Angel Dodgy Tongue Clap - Might have something to do with running themselves into the ground breaking Bulls record of 72 games won in a season! They wanted it all and now it may be costing them! Rolleyes

the DUBS bigs(Bogut and Fetus A) suck.. Kerr shouldnt play those clowns at all .. Klay needs to shoot aleast 6 times a Qtr.. Draymon needs to get his head out of his azz and play.. Step needs to drive to the lane more.. take 12-15 foot shots( they will foul him everytime) then work his way back outside.. Westbrook is a pure pitbull and is just hungrier. if they dethrone the champs.. OKC is very deserving.. the MVP and "Coach(Kerr and Walton) are getting outplayed and out coached..

Unfortunately Curry even missed "layups" in that blowout! It's amazing to see happen again and again; players who would kill you and me, but in the clutch on TV and in front of thousands of fans, they can't hit the broad side of a barn! Cover Rolleyes No No Puzzled Eyepop

It's pretty shocking how bad they are playing. After OKC beat SA I figured this would be a tough series but this has been a beatdown. Curry has been garbage as has the rest of the team. Assuming they lose this series they are going to be the laughing stock of the league, a team that sets the wins record and can't even make the finals.

I thought it would come back to haunt them going for the record! When the Bulls set it, Michael and company pretty much rested in the last 4 games, losing 2 of 4! GS max'd out to the very last game of the season! It was stupid and I think it's gonna cost them; big time! No No Cover Eyepop

Nah.. it isnt no shame.. I cant think of any team in NBA with the lone exception of the 96-98 BULLS that would have had an answer for these OKC athletic players.. the old toupee wearing coach Dick Versace(KS remembers this) called the trio of Jordan, Pippen, Rodman and Ron Harper as the "Dopermans".. That's the only team that could compare with the way OKC is playing.. the Spurs won 67 games this year.. should they be ashamed not to make it past the 2nd round .. Hell No.. We are experiencing Russell Westbrook on a mission and I dont think there have been an human alive that could keep up with him but Jordan. Kobe could at certain periods of a game but not the entirety of a game.

Kobe could at certain periods of a game but not the entirety of a game.

OKC's path to the championship would be the most incredible run in any sport that I've seen. SA and GSW averaged 70 wins and if they get to the finals they will hopefully be facing the Cleveland Lebrons. Westbrook is too athletic to keep in front of you. It is a team effort to stop that guy but a good big or two down low can alter his shot and cause him problems near the rim. MJ and anyone else would've had all sorts of problems keeping that guy in front of them. Kobe would have no chance. And that's the end of me complimenting him, I will now admit that he is a great, great player and not just an athlete but let's see how the rest of the playoffs play out. He still has those flaky games that can cost his team.

But if GSW goes down in 5 or an easy 6 (which seems likely) they absolutely will be a bit of a laughing stock. That's the way it goes. The effort to set that record and the pressure they put on themselves throughout the year has possibly come back to bite them. Also, OKC is playing THAT well that they were always going to be a big threat to GSW in this series. But it can't be denied that GSW looks like crap and it's not all down to OKC. The Spurs did have a bit of a bust year all things considered but they at least put up a fight vs. OKC and probably would've won that series if they didn't piss away game 5 badly at the end.

Even if GSW comes back and wins this, they will be just so exhausted that Cavs will just steamroll them. They play exhausted to begin with !

Just being realistic more than anything. I am very proud of what Raps have done so far but going to Cleveland and stealing one is going to be extremely tough. And that's what's required to advance...

Having said that...LET'S GO RAPTORS !!!Wink

Looks like some home cooking helped Love. he is not missing. Raps out of sorts, turning it over like crazy. Got to chip away, slowly.

^ Well, Raps can take comfort in the fact that they have not lost to the Cavs in Toronto this year, but it is a close out game and even if Raps can take it to game 7, they are being blown out in Cleveland constantly. I would still like to see a game 7 though.

These playoffs are just wacky and unfortunately they haven't been too entertaining. The Raps seemed to be dead after the first couple games but then they win 2 at home and figured to carry some good momentum into yesterday's game and that was their best chance to steal one in Cleveland. Golden State seemed to figure a lot out in game 2 of that series, winning by 30 but then they go to OKC and get decked twice. Home court means a lot but it shouldn't mean 50+ point swings that we've been seeing.
