Man, I think OKC could really give GS fits in the playoffs.I didn't see the game but what in a 32 point loss made you think OKC can hang with Golden State?
With Butler and Kawhi out, I think OKC gets to that 3 spot. GS better buckle down and get that first seed, because they could be in some real trouble if they have to see OKC in the second round and then Houston in the WCF without homecourt advantage.
When OK3 goes 3-18 from deep and Paul George has the night he has, then OKC obviously gets blown out.
I still think GSW > OKC in a playoff series, but I wouldn't let last night's game be representative of the Thunder team. Westbrook had a bad night too.
But as we've seen, when the OK3 have solid nights, they can beat anybody, including the Warriors who they are 2-1 against in this season.
I do think Westbrook needs to tone it down at times. When OKC needed something while GSW started pulling away, all Westbrook did was jack up 40 footers, or drive into quadruple teams and then make a bad pass or try a horrid shot attempt. He's an electric player but can be really inefficient and inconsistent as well.
