Westbrook is gonna be amazing. Just need a few games to gel with this team. I can't wait for him and Lebron and AD to wreck teams and bully them in submission. Ppl tripping after 2 games lol - this team has already shown flashes. Not worried at all.

Another 10 turnovers tonight and 7-18 so far from the field. Lakers in general have been disappointing and especially tonight giving up a 22 point lead. RW is not a guy who knows how to play without the ball in his hands and he's wildly inefficient. Let's see what happens.
Bad loss. But, b2b on the road after an OT game last night. They ran out of gas. On to the next one.

He played off-ball in Houston and Washington next to Harden and Beal. I am not saying he's a superstar - but he's still a top 20 player in the league and that's pretty good if that's your 3rd best player. It's still very early. He's learning how to play in a new system with new players. Like I said - give it about 20 games. He's gonna have his turnovers - about 4 a game even when he's on the same wavelength. But, he's gonna get 10+ assist a game too. Westbrook has his pros and cons...and I think his pros especially on this team will out-weight the cons by a good margin.

Yeah, they ran out of gas, but they also took their foot off the gas in the 2nd half. Up so big, they got comfortable.

I hate big leads in the first Quarter. They almost never last.
Carmelo Anthony 30 minutes lmao
Our record when leading by 25 points is now 230-1...

B2B for OKC as well. No excuse for blowing a huge lead to one of the worst teams in the league.

Not knocking either team, just an observation, and I dont follow the NBA anymore like I used to (one time I could name the starting five for every team in the league lulz, but I checked the roster of the Thunder yesterday and man - if you asked me prior to name just one player i couldnt do it.

Vogel doesn't have the balls to cut RW to 25 minutes and Melo to 20 minutes max. Lebron didn't play but it's still a bad look to see Melo getting so many minutes (and airballing the last shot).

This is a Lebron run team, don't get it twisted. He takes care of his boys. Melo should get 15 MAYBE, but that won't happen.

ehh. he played pretty well in Portland and he was somewhat of a need. the past couple of years we've had so few guys who can create their shot for us. i don't mind him at 15-20 a game, for now...

overall, i'm gonna wait until THT, Ariza, and Nunn are back. those are 3 of our best defenders and i think its something we are really missing right now. the offense will figure its self out. there's too much talent for that not to happen. its the defense i was worried about and hopefully those 3 guys can make a pretty big difference when they are back.
