Nets v Thunder
Russell Westbrook has finding those lanes against the Nets with Durant sidelined. His range looks shaky today. His defense and nose for the ball is spectacular as usual.
Jeff Green looks much comfortable playing Durant's role. He shows all the skills to be a premiere SF.
Harden looks unsure as to when and to what degree to attack, but he moves well off the ball and draws contact wonderfully.
Lopez has the softest hands for a center in the league. He tips the ball to much to be a consistant;y big time rebounder, but his post offense is a thing of beauty.
Farmer is good. He's the ideal back up.
Anthony Morrow is a big time shooter. Bottoms from 30 feet to tie it up and send it to OT. Sweet release. Pure from when it left his hands.
Humphries understands his niche. He's playing much better defense than when he was younger, shows more poise and calm on the offense end, and is really effective doing the dirty work. He's playing, as the adage goes, with a ton of confidence.
The Thunder look a little shocked after the buzzer beater. They better get the ball to Green (has not taken enough shots for how well hes been playing) and Russell plays off of him.
Westbrook coming up big on offense, and the Nets are coming up small with a lead. Poor offensive execution is damning them.
It damned them right to double OT, and the Nets are looking weary. Two games in two nights, this double OT will be a gut check.
triple OT. Good for fantasy.
Westbrooks getting a triple double. Jeff Greens doing fantastic in KD's role. DONT FORGET FARMAR! 25 pts for him too with 9 assists..
the foul when up 3 strategy backfired on new jersey at the end of the second ot.
Lopez's jumper went flat. Westbrook took over, but struggled overall. The Nets cannot close out to win. They seem to just try not to lose. It gotta be frustrating.
Russell Westbrook = MVP
38pts / 15rebs / 9asts / 3stls
I don't have a problem with people saying that Westbrook isn't better than Rose, but it's insane to say that Rose is better than Westbrook.
If I had to take one of them Id still takRoe for the 3 poin shooting, although by no means does that mean Westbrook is not at Roses level.
neither can shoot a three to save there life. rose is 65th in the nba out of all guards and westbrook is 71st. like taking shaq over ben wallace for free throws
Youre saying the guy who made 6 three on 28% is equal to the guy that made 20 threes on 34%? Thats objective.
No im saying both are very bad three point shooters
The good thing is westbrook makes up for it by not taking many threes and hitting the all important free throws at 89percent
Rose isn't a very bad 3 point shooter at all. He is shooting 33.8 % from deep right now, which is higher then Kobe. Not only that, but he doesn't hesitate to shoot the 3 nearly as much as in the past, he is confident he can make that shot now. You really have an undeniable bias against Rose.
By that same argument, Rose does a better job of avoiding contact, getting to the line less and scoring more at a higher percentage from the floor and beyond the arc. Come on lets stop this.
ill let his continued dominace speak for its self:)
33 percent is not good from three. sorry but being a good three point shooter isnt based off of what kobe is doing. You really think 65th out of all guards is considered a good three point shooter? thats out of seventy something so that would be considered way belwo average. yes please stop
whats does westbrook's free throw percentage have to do with rose avoiding contact? i rather have westbrook not shooting alot of threes (which he is doing) and making his free throws since he goes to the whole alot.
Anyway not gonna debate about that other guy since this is a thunder vs nets postHopefully this is the game that makes lopex decide to get more rebounds
I didn't say he was good. He is about average from downtown at this point. You clearly don't watch Rose play much or you can see he is not a poor shooter at all.
How about Jeff Green ya'll stepped up big time as well with durant out. Hopefully they dont trade him
He is very underrated, especially on this site.
