I'd intentional foul if I'm OKC. Let them shoot two and then hit two of your own.,

The Durant bounce, The big last second tossup shot by Ibaka, and the weird turnovers by Harden kept the big comeback win at bay. Great game though.

OKC still has a ton of weapons. You got to have a bigger lead then 2 to beat them sometimes.

Give Ibaka some credit also, he hit two big shots late. The fade away jumpers and then the crazy throw up as the shot clock was hitting 0.

At least this is a good matchup, unlike the Lakers and Spurs.

So 30 seconds on the shot clock and McHale is waving his hands not to foul. Meanwhile the assistant coach is yelling to foul and showing everybody the foul sign inevitably leading to a foul with 8 seconds on the shot clock...I wonder what McHale thought of that when he watched the tape later. I would lose my shit.

It was like some brains just froze up when they got the score evened up, and they just failed to ride the momentum right through to the end.

sometimes you wonder why they didn't move perkins and just kept hardern

its possible for all 3 to start together,

lebron, wade and Bosh

even with westbrook they look like they don't have the capability of ever winning a championship with the current roster where as with harden they were almost unstoppable

bunch of scorers and defenders with no playmakers to be found

even if you had to get rid of ibaka and perkins, you can still find bigs the game has changed, its small ball now, you just need one good big, and couple average ones off the bench

Westbrook is a playmaker. Just because you score doesn't mean you can't pass. Guy had 7 APG while scoring 24. Durant also has developed into a good passer.

They kept Perkins because they need that big man down low. They had plenty of scoring. They didn't want Thabeet starting

Edit: one more thought. I think Harden got selfish. The team wanted him to take a bit of a hit for the sake of winning, and he refused. It wasnt about WANTING to keep/trade Harden. He forced their hand
