WMC 12/13: Mercy kill. (0-4)

^I agree Puffy. We have a shot, especially since the team is desperate for wins. The Atlanta game showed me that Kobe and company are willing at this point to win ugly. And I predict an ugly game in OKC, but with a lot of grit, and a little luck, we can pull it out.

Weezy- fair enough. Don't get me wrong I am not saying any of you are pessimistic, not fans, debbie-downers etc... I am just saying, for me, I can't go into a game thinking its a loss.

V5- They are winning ugly now. Early in the season we haven't been able to do that at all. Even in the Denver game when we cut it to 7 in the fourth we didn't hit our easy shots. We had some bad choices and the game turned on us but truth was Den didn't smoke us like people said they did. The ran us up and down the court but we failed to capitalize like we shoudl have. Yea some will say it was Den that did it but I thought most of our issues were self-inflicted. Now, I understand where Weezy is coming from because we have never gotten a fair shake in OKC but I will never call it a loss before the game is over.

Were goin in there and handling them on tuesday night. That OKC crowd is gonna be quiet when we have them down double digits.

Puff, if the game was in LA, I would feel comfortable saying we have a shot, but it's in OKC and I can't say that. Durant alone is going to get like 15 free throws. We can't even keep a double digit lead at home to the Hawks, no lead will be safe on the road to the Thunder.

Nutsbaka should get suspended so you never know ... A 1-1 record on the road would follow our 3 out of 4 "goal" until the rest of the season ... We may win a close game at OKC but lose to the Pelicans the following one ... this team isn't made for b2b games ... too old and limited depth ( with the current injuries).

Back to the WMC for this game :
- TO
- Nash watching from the corner down the stretch

I am imagining D12 and Kobe being hacked to death w/o calls, while KD/Westbrick will get 80 FTs each for giving them a funny look...

Defense sucked from mid 3rd qtr-4th qtr, that last Atl play was embarrasing, "almost" beaten by the EXACT same play as the prvevious one by Horford, they're lucky Smith bobbled the ball otherwise that was an easy 2.

Hillarious we hit .500 and March and all of a sudden our fans have confidence and egos again...just sickening we are still .500 and its March! THAT IS HORRIBLE! The fact that we were ever 8 games under .500 made it certain I would never find happiness or positive thoughts during this season. We are a garbage team having to scratch and claw for an 8 seed and some of you are in here rejoicing as if we've done something to clap about. We make the playoffs if the other teams ahead of us collapse, if/when that happens there will be those of you celebrating when what it should be looked at as is how the mighty have fallen.

Pre season if I would've said we would have to fight for the 8 seed you all would scoff and consider the season a failure if that were the case too. But no we all have to keep our fan blinders on and act like there is something to celebrate when there is ZERO to celebrate about. We doomed ourselves with an awful start and we should have to pay the price for it by sitting out the spring and having our players reflect on just how terrible they were. However lucky for us Utah and Golden State aren't good either and will probably lose 35 games or so like average teams do and we'll slip in for a 1st round knock out. WOW I CAN'T WAIT :freak2:

You understand me correctly if you understood that I don't believe this team, as currently constructed and healthy or otherwise, is ELITE. And by elite I mean widely regarded as a top 2 or 3 team in the league if not better.

Agree about the injuries. However, it is my opinion that the injuries are simply exacerbating the real problem which is, that we aren't inherently elite.

Steve Blake has been nice, but let's not go overboard here and suggest he's been the reason. What difference did you see him make in the Portland and Charlotte victories?



I didn't say it directly, but I agree with you. I think that with perfect health this team would be a 5-6 seed in the West, I wouldn't consider them elite.

As for Blake, he is just simply better than Duhon and Morris. We are getting more from him as a backup and him playing along side of Nash than we were with either of the other two.

If we play against OKC the way we played against Atlanta we get destroyed. The only way we win is to play disciplined on both ends of the court. That means limiting turnovers, boxing out, proper defensive rotations and the like. Even then it's a long shot but at least we'd stand a fighting chance.

Another thing tomorrow is Howard has to keep his cool. The Pork is a dirty bastard that loves to foul and foul hard, and I'm sure he'll go after Howard's shoulder and guarantee no flagrants will be called, after all once a ****** always a ******. Same goes for Ron as well, he has to keep his cool.

Kobe should really look to be a facilitator in the OKC game. Thabo is going to look to play up on Kobe and Ibaka/Perkins LOVE to help off their man. Guys like Clark is going to be crucial to slashing to the basket for the easy bucket.

Kobe on Westbrook, Nash on Thabo on defense. Also, put Clark on Durant.

What the f*** are your problems?

We as fans want to feel good about the team. They're winning games at a 70% clip in almost their last 20 games. Why the f*** shouldn't we be excited and confident again?

I've been furious almost the whole season with this team, and finally, finally we have something to be excited about.
