LOL @ Westbrook's D.
BTW, he was 6/21 from the field (3 more shots than Durant smh) and had 6 turnovers. He can be very detrimental to OKC some times, and tonight was one of those times.

I don't like Harden at all but you have to agree that he's a better SG than RS. They still lack a good PG to help Durant and RS to get open shots even if Durant can create his own shots.

LOL seriously WTF was Westbrook doing on that play.

I don't know if I've seen a guy get lost that bad on a final play. He literally started chasing a ghost.

Two game winners this season already for TP. Impressive start.

As for Westbrook... I echo everyone else's reactions to him. Where the eff was he going? :man10:

OKC is now 0-1.

Everyone ready to chill out on 0-2 for us yet? :man10:

edit: just watched it... where the f*** was Westbrook going? He completely took his eyes off of Parker. I had just stopped watching the game because I was at the gym. I know Westbrook was really hogging the ball and blowing his layups on the other end. Man, he was really the goat last night. :man10:

^^^ They lost on a game winner, we lost by double digits both games. (Well by 8 the first game with a pointless Pau 3 at the buzzer).

Just putting things in perspective. In a month or two months or three months, these starts won't matter.

I've lost that sense of perspective to be honest. For the last two years, it was ohh we will be ready, the switch will turn on eventually, come playoff time we will turn it on, etc....

It's hard to buy into something like that when the last two years have been failures in the same mold as wait and see, it's coming.

But this season is vastly different than those two. We're an almost completely different team from last season, not to mention two seasons ago.

This season the gears are turning and we're making progress. To use John Ireland's reference , s not a switch that needs flipping, it's a cake that needs baking. We're still baking and we're getting better as time goes along. Soon we'll be a glorious, delicious cake, but until then this team still needs time to build chemistry.

Yes, we should have our cake and eat it too. Spurs are solid as usual. It can be said that OKC will have to adjust without Harden but Martin isn't bad though he doesn't have the ability to take it to the rim for scores and draw fouls. San Antonio was without Ginobili but they Neal and Jackson to compensate for his absence.

Parker's perimeter shooting has improved so much. Hitting that trey to tie it up would have been unimaginable about him early in his career.

Martin isn't Harden, but he played fairly well. He did a pretty good job down the stretch there.

I wonder if the Harden trade messed with Westbrook's head a little bit. He definitely was wound up... well moreso than usual. He seemed to think now that Harden was gone he had more responsibility offensively.

Miller pointed out one key sequence where Durant was on the low block asking for the ball but Westbrook instead ignored him to put up a jumper which missed. I think he played his usual game. If he was wound up it is probably on an emotional and personal level about a teammate he seems to be close to.

When I saw the replay of it on ESPN I didn't even notice how lost Westbrook was on that play.

Yeah, I mean it's games like last night when you see just how harmful Westbrook can be to Durant. I know the two of them are successful in a lot of ways and similar to what we had going with Kobe/Shaq. They're two dominating offensive players that need the ball and it's difficult for that to work out perfectly. Obviously our duo was maybe the greatest 1-2 offensive punch ever in the game, but the idea is pretty similar.

Two guys that need the ball to be effective. When they aren't willing to work together you're going to lose some games because of it. Our guys were willing for about 4 years there to work together and to make each other better and win games. A lot of that is Phil and coaching. Some of it is on the players.

If I'm Durant, I tear Westbrook's head off for that crap. Hell if I'm Brooks I tear his head off.

I think you could be right. Harden might have been a steadying influence there and Westbrook might be feeling the pain of displacement on the team.

Westbrook is becoming synonymous with mental lapse..... He's got a ton of natural talent but the wiring wasn't fully installed between the ears.....
