We would have won if Matt Caroll had seen the floor. He's our championship piece.
lets see....your best player really doesn't get into it at all. your starting center gets 1 rebound, your best 3 point shooter goes 2 for 10...and you come up short by 4 against a very solid team....oh, well...
no wonder harden has been going off, he's the only player in the nba the travelling rule doesn't apply too. in the third quarter alone i counted 3 unwhistled
Our guards are horrid defensively.
This team would be so much better with Gordon. I mean, seriously, he is EXACTLY what the team needs.
Can someone add this to the smileys?
This team is going to be seriously good once Gordon comes back... I think most of us are forgetting just how good Gordon is... and as some have mentioned he is exactly what this team is missing!
I just don't understand why Roberts waves off the post every time there is a switch.
Also the NBA seriously needs to start telling the Refs to keep their eyes open.. Parsons with the clear double dribble on a fast break attempt, Asik with more travels than can be counted donw low and forget about Harden. There was a layup play where I counted 5 steps!!!
And this sums up the game.
Also, Jeremy Lin isn't the same Jeremy Lin that we played in the Garden last season. That signing was a bust.
Doesn't have to do with our game, but:
@DarnellMayberryKendrick Perkins & Zach Randolph had an alteration. Police investigating.
Jenni Carlson @JenniCarlson_OK
As @DarnellMayberry says, there may be no investigation under way, but a NewsOK staffer heard yelling and walls and doors being hit.
Harden can be held in check. I suspect the next time they play he will be. You just need to be able to funnel him to a big and rotate if he tries to pass. If thats done, he'll either throw up a contested brick or put his head down and drive, in a straight line, at all costs.
Aminu really disappointed. Got shook pretty easily. Somebody like G....DAMIIT! :hot:
Harden had 19 of his 30 points and was 7-11 at the half. In the second half when Lopez didn't get as many minutes as the other starters Harden scored 11 points on 3-9 shooting.
The refs treated Harden like he was MJ. The guy was flopping and traveling but still getting the fouls.
Another thing I came to notice. Their starters played 48 combined minutes in the fourth quarter. Ours? 27 combined minutes. I know we outscored them by 5, but you have to think what could have been.
