3rd straight double digit L for OKC.
Donovan's gonna get fired, further cementing Carmelo's rep as a coach killer.
Robertson is the real MVP
... and Phil J.
Nice win in Cleveland.
3 wins out of 3rd place. Should be able to close January pretty strong. Steven Adams has been the key. He went 12 for 13 against the Cavs with his only miss being a 3 pointer. Melo and PG continue to get more comfortable.
Haven't seen many OKC games recently. Do you think PG and Melo are simply getting more comfortable within the offense, or have there been any shifts in the offense to cater to them a bit more? Or has there been some other reason for a bit better cohesiveness?
I just think Melo and PG are allowing Westbrook to lead them. They know their roles better now and can do what the do in the flow of the game. Nothing else has really changed other than getting Roberson back.
Melo has adapted. PG just had a good game.
6 in a row vs bad teams.
Cleveland and Washington are not bad teams.....
No they aren't.
But they sure were playing like bad teams at the time of the OKC matchup.
Totally agreed. His post could have been worded differently. Almost looked like he was trying to discredit his own team 6 game win streak even though they beat 2 playoffs teams in that 6 game stretch and likely finals representative from the eastern conference.
Interesting on TNT the other night, Barkley saying they are still the 5th best team in the West. Reggie Miller disagreed with him courtside and said you just have to see up close how defensively imposing this team is when they want to be. Said they will be a tough out for anyone, guess we will see.
I think they're the 3rd best team (possibly 2nd best) in the West when it comes to playoffs basketball.
Still need to see them do this more and win more games on the road vs good teams. The lack of quality road wins they have is stunning. Their only really good road win was against Cleveland then they have 3 other solid wins against avg teams in Indy, Milwaukee, and Philly.
0 road wins vs the other 7 playoffs team in the playoffs and just 5-8 vs those teams
I would not be surprised if they made the WCF, given the right draw. Nor would I be surprised if they went out first round.
They need another shooter, I don’t expect a trade but with Presti you just never know. He would trade Abrinas for a new washing machine I bet.
No. I was simply pointing out they had a nice win streak. And I chose to acknowledge that the competition wasn't the greatest before someone else felt the need to do so.
With Presti I always count on a trade.
