Thunder vs Nuggets Thread
Everyone knows how I feel about them in the west, I have them in the Finals vs Chicago, but Denver is one team who could end up upsetting a team in the playoffs.
Damn Westbrook is killing it. Denver looking good though
K Mart looking like a straight finesse baller right now and nice lob from Lawson to Birdman
Denver is playing terrific right now, they are suprising me on how well balanced and deep they are, they have so many guys on any given night can kill you, and they are all so selfless, nobody tries to do anything they cannot do, they all play within themselves and know their roles and so far this game have had many guys score the ball which is great. For the series though I am skeptic they can hang with the Thunder for a 7 game series, who knows they they may just push them to the limit if they continue their extremely well play.
why does ibaka keep shooting that jumper instead of going indide?
Westbrook can do ANYTHING any PG can do in the league right now..His jumper is solild now.... yet, he gets no love for being a top 3 PG talent. To me, him and a healthy Cp3 are the most complete PGs offensively and defensively in the league.
If Westbrook shoots that jumper consistently the rest of the NBA is in very big trouble
Ty Lawson......2 LITTLE for WESTBROOK hahahahah
KD put Wilson Chandler in a blender before that fade away 3!!
I think Blake Griffin has possessed Nene in this game.
Westbrook my fav player but get the ball 2 Durant PLEASE!!!!!!
How did the refs miss that obvious basket interference? They probably cost the Nuggets the game... I mean the dude had his hand caught up in the net. It should have been reviewed at least especially so late in the game. This was a big game for Denver to come out of, and refs can't just be like I don't give a &$#%#&@! on something like that in a playoff game.
I understand why they didn't make that call though. His hand didn't go through the rim, and the ball was off the rim. His hands just got a little tangled in the net. I'de be ashamed if my team won because of that call.
can someone explain why down 3 with 55 seconds left the nuggets had felton, lawson, gallinari, martin and nene on the court?
Why not have someone who can create a shot for themselves.. j.r, harrington or chandler? they were all playing pretty dece.
I really dont get why kenyon is on the court in that situation.. they just called a timeout too and left him in.. frustrating to watch
Durant and Westbrook really willed their team to victory, I thought Maynor made some key shots/plays as well. Was a real great game to watch, if this the series is going to be exciting as this game, I am definitely looking forward to it
They could have reviewed it just like they review to see if a 3 pointer is a 2 or whatever, or is there some ruling that they can't do that? It wouldn't have delayed the game by that much to make sure. Other things also cost Denver the game, but at that moment, that basket was a very meaningful one.
prob didnt review because they knew they got the non call right
1) it was nice to see ibaka shooting the J, makes me think he could be more than just an athletic shot-blocker
2) denver's PG's played like sh1t...felton especially, out of control a lot, took forced shots
3) al harrington was noticably frustrated throughout the majority of the game, he didnt get looked at at all
4) denver needs more ball movement, they seem to go on 1 on 1 a lot...
5) nene could be so much better than his numbers indicate, damn faucet player (on and off, on and off, etc)
Damn those are two good teams. Fun game to watch. Really, I think both teams could go far. I'm not buying into that stuff that Denver can't make noise in the playoffs because they don't have a superstar go to guy. Denver only has one problem, they are playing the Thunder.
How could they know that the call was right when the guy touched the ball when it was over the cylinder?
"1) it was nice to see ibaka shooting the J, makes me think he could be more than just an athletic shot-blocker"
Missing wide open shots the other team wants him to take is now an accomplishment?
