good job Russell. Durant with 16 in the 4th on 5 shots and Westbrook is just chucking his heart out down the stretch.

That's how a team will beat OKC. Just gotta take it at Westbrook and make him go into hero mode. He plays out of control.

OKC is just flat out better than Denver. Against a team like L.A tho, that chucking will simply not do.

Huh? Kenyon Martin clearly hit elbow before the shot went off.

I'm not agreeing with that poster but the fact that you think the game should be called differently in the last moments of the game, is exactly what's wrong with the NBA.

durant is so sick though.. kept the thunder in the game and almost tipped it over for the thunder. Westbrook did make some big time plays though like the And 1 and the quick layups.. just couldn't hit the 3's maybe. Westbrook was on fire in the third quarter.

Against LA he'll be guarded by Derek Fisher though, and he won't need so many jumpshots.

Good game, a litle bit boring but Denver have gained some confidence, and the fifth game can be great.

The Thunder's only effective play this year in must score situations has been when Durant sets an on ball pick for Westbrook and then pops or rolls to score. It's also got them a few baskets from Westbrook getting to the rim.

I wish we'd have seen them do that late in tonight's game.

Yeah,because bench went into "hero mode" and missed 2 totally unnecessary threes. (one of them was even an airball )

Gallinari's defense on Durant was fantastic. I don't remember seeing Durant score on him at all.

Denver is a really frustrating team though.. They blew their leads several time in the 4th with dumbass turnovers and bad shots in crucial moments. Free throws need major improvement

We literally don't have plays. We just have good/great scorers who can make it sometimes so it looks ok, but we literally don't have plays, just basic basketball stuff like pick and roll, post up draw help kick out, drive and kicks, etc.
