    I'm betting on it (with 3m in the third left down by 13).


    I can see them winning this one, but not sure they can win a game 7 in Indy. Still, they've been a pleasant surprise this postseason, that's for sure.

    When the scorekeeper awarded LAC's points to OKC, I was not impressed. Hate this league... Go Spurs.

    GET OUT OF HERE PEACHES.

    Come on, Spurs in 5. OKC has been playing like garbage early in games and the Spurs don't let teams 'get back into it' in the 4th.

    Spurs in 5, then beat Miami in 5.

    Thunder owns the Spurs. won 10 of the last 12, including all 4 regular season games this year. Now, if Ibaka is going to miss time? yeah, that'll be a problem, but if Parker misses time with his hamstring, then the Thunder will win regardless. Spurs are just too slow for the Thunder.

    Now you see why they chose to pay Ibaka instead of Harden.

  • It seems that the Thunder are going to get swept by the Spurs. The Thunder have the same problem that's plagued them the past few years. Never seems to change....they have zero presence in the middle. Thus teams with decent power forwards/Centers give them trouble. Spurs have more weapons than the Grizzlies did and that's why they will win the series. Even with Ibaka there, the Thunder wouldn't have much of chance winning. They need more. If Kevin Love is on the block, they need to go get him if they want to be serious contenders to win a championship. Get rid of Kendrick Perkins. That dude is useless.

  • They don't need a fantasy loving perimeter big man like Kevin Love, they just need a big man who can post up, play some defense and rebound and maybe hit a free throw or two.

    Get some Larry Sanders up in there. Or one of the young up 'n comers for a cheaper risk (Koufos?).

    I can imagine it's not very fun for the chubbies Barkley is talking about, probably a little warm :lol:

    Sanders free throw percentage is way too low. Need someone who can shoot at least .700.

    Still would be better than what they are putting on the court right now. While Love may not be an inside presence on offense, he is capable of hitting the outside shot, three and would pull a bigger guy out to guard him. Thus allowing for more room inside. Something none of their other bigs do now (except for Durant).

    Defensively, Love averages 12.2 rebounds over his career. That's about twice what the best rebounder on the current roster for the Thunder averages.

    Love would deffinitely make the Thunder a much better team. He can provide what Harden did and offer more defensively. That's what's missing. They haven't been the same since they traded Harden.

    I liked those guys too when they were Sonics but the big three thing is a turn off..I do like the Spurs because they are supposed to be too old to win it and I can appreciate their fans giving Seattle a shout..How can we not root for them?
