    The question once again will be can they score enough points..

    Ingram needs to be a lot better

    Oh and keep Jonas on the court if he is playing well

    If we can make to round 2 we may get Zion back . That is my prediction of what it sounded like in his interview yesterday. I don’t think he has touched a basketball yet.

    I'm holding out hope he can get back for later in this series if we can manage to stretch it out to 6 or 7.

    The pipe dream for me is to have him return Game 3 at home, but I recognise that's probably not going to happen even if he does come back eventually.

    Before the series started, I was convinced the Thunder would come out hot game one and this game would be our best chance at snagging an away win. But then the Thunder spent game one looking like a young team not ready to play under the big lights and we let them off the hook......

    So...will OKC still come out nervous or will that win bolster their confidence? We'll see. I think it's important we start hot to destroy that confidence.
    BI, Zion, and CJ had a net rating of +3 when on the court together. BI and Zion had a +13.4, BI and CJ had a +13.2, Zion and CJ was just +5.4.

    BI and Zion worked. BI and CJ worked. It was CJ and Zion and all three together that didn't work.

    we need to learn how to close games out....we need clutch players or a coach who can put the right players in that position...

    At some point you would think they just need to let him decide if he feels like he can give it a go. Best case is he's fine, worst case is he aggravates it and is out anyway.

    I mean, worse case is that by playing on an active injury he's overcompensating by relying too heavily on the other leg or something and what would have been a couple of weeks of re-hab turns into a career ender when he ruptures his achilles or something.

    If he's not ready to play, don't force it.

    Once all scans are clear and imaging is clear, then give him the option but don't even allow him to touch the court until that's the case.

    No way you force it. He would need to pass whatever testing they want him too. I just fear we may end up with the "I don't fell like myself," stuff again even though he's cleared. I'm hoping that taste of dominating a game and carrying the team in a playoff scenario when he went out will motivate him to get back out there even if he isn't feeling 100% but things are stable.

    Mainly, if you get cleared get ya butt back out there and play through it.

    We're gonna win game 2, I have faith.

    BI bounce back game.

    I will choose to believe.

    IMO, Green has been putting everyone where they need to be....they're just bricking shots.

    if hawkins or ryan can spell herb then see if okc will leave them open for 3s or unclog the inside for some inside scoring..

    Looks like the refs have decided OKC will win this one. Plus they can't miss from 3

    The officiating is so much worse with TNT. Joel and AD will call it out and somehow relaxes me knowing someone agrees. The TNT announcers are just like "you have to love the way OKC keeps hitting Ingram. Shots to the body. Yeah."

    Then they call every touch we make to them.
