    Can't think of a more perfect FU ending to a game for that fat ugly bastard Thunder owner who took the team away from Seattle.

    It's called insecurity.

    Lillard. That's his second series-winning buzzer-beater; and although his team had a 3-1 stranglehold in both series, his buzzer-beaters obviated a potentially fate-changing Game 7 on both occasions (at least likely so in this year's case, considering the Thunder would've had some heady momentum moving into Game 6 at home).

    What a let-up by OKC. I turned off the T.V. when they had a 15-point lead halfway through the fourth, and I noticed this turnaround when looking up the boxscore recap.

    Westbrook and Paul George will take most of the flak—and understandably so—but Billy Donovan is just as culpable for his lineup mismanagement and laissez-fair crunch-time approach; rather than throwing new wrinkles into the offense down the wire, he gives his superstars the keys to chuck up the most predictable shots. The Thunder under his coaching have easily been one of the most fruitless fourth-quarter teams in the playoffs, and they'll probably remain as such unless Donovan can start massaging his superstars' egos—an essential soft skill for any coach at this level.

    there was more than half a shot clock and the dude just dribbled it down to take a near-half court three?!

    even the chucking master wouldn't dare to take such a shot. Low LQ and low % shot but he's boss for making it

    It was a dumb shot, admittedly, but he was feeling it all night and the score was tied anyway. Walk off game winner from a ridiculous length. He was knocking shots like that all evening.

    He shot like 60% from out there, it's a dumb shot for anyone else not named Steph Curry.

    60% in this case is probably 3/5. That’s mich too small a sample size to conclude anything from.

    Amazing shot but it was absolutely a dumb shot for ANYONE to take.

    Can't remember off the top of my head, but it was definitely over 10 attempts for the series.

    This confirms everything I believed: A team with Westbrick as one of the main options can and will never win anything. Dame is now officially his father.

    I put way too much faith in Westbrook, in my office playoff predictions I had OKC winning in 6.

    The day the playoff seeds were set, so many people were saying OKC had an easy road to the WCF
