I must admit, this game has weighed on my mind for days.  I have become possessed with figuring it out. I just can't shake the fact that OKC will win this game barring something crazy.
  •  It's hard to sweep a team 4-0 in the NBA, especially when that team is at home
  • GS hasn't necessarily been playing better as of late, or basically since KD is out in general.  Not that 3 wins in a row doesn't get them going again, but realistically speaking they just got to play the easiest 3 game schedule of their season at the right time  (home games vs. 76ers, Magic, and Bucks)
  • Durant is out this game obviously; the first 3 games in the series he had Monster games to help GS
  • Not only is GS without Durant for this game, OKC has since ADDED Mcdermott and Taj Gibson.  Gibson is a really nice defensive and rebounding addition.  OKC's defensive front court is now deep and bruising.  It's fair to say those guys make a difference
  • IF OKC can't catch GS this time, at home, when they're on fire, vs GS without Durant, and all to avoid the season sweep, then OKC has no business climbing up the standings ladder.  It's put up or shutup for a team that if nothing else has Major Heart, hussle, and chip on their shoulder.    I'm okay with betting that angle its the right one.

You're correct about last statement... OKC has no biz climbing up...

Before they acquired McDermott and especially Gibson (5-0 since he became starter) I agree with you, but I return to my earlier point that those guys are solid additions and make them dangerous in any playoff series but more importantly push them over the top tonight at home to avoid sweep. That doesn't mean they're on the same level as Gs/Sa/hou because they're not but tonight they will be and that's all we need baby.

I have rarely posted on this site in all my years here and so it sucks this one has gone down in fawkingg flames.

I took a 2,500 hit so pretty bummed. A little bit in shock to be on the wrong side of one of westbrooks least inspired, worst looking game that I can recall.

Everyone talked big about OKC. You're the only one that had the marbles to come back and say you were wrong. I respect that. There was a reason the Dubs were favored, on the road no less. Oddsmakers aren't in the business of giving out money. They put a very honest line out.
